Last week we brought you an exclusive photo from season 5 of The Walking Dead that showed Daryl Dixon gagged and bound. No doubt that sent shivers down the spines among fans of Dixon and the man who plays him, Norman Reedus. Of course, as a fan favorite, Daryl would seem to be the last person the show would ever dream of killing off. However, Reedus did actually think his number was being called near the end of season 4 when Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman…well, called his number. READ FULL STORY

Season 4 of The Walking Dead may have ended with a cliffhanger and many questions about the folks of Terminus that trapped our group of survivors, but creator Robert Kirkman says when the show returns in October that we will “very quickly deal with the situation that we left them in.” And that’s not all he told us. As Kirkman and Co. prepare to return to Comic-Con in San Diego (their panel is on Friday, July 25), the man who gave birth to the comic book and is an executive producer on the TV adaptation talked more about what — and whom — we can expect to see in season 5. (WARNING: Spoilers below. So now you’ve been warned.) READ FULL STORY
“If Daryl dies, we riot” has been a familiar refrain from fans of the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon. That means Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman could have a melee on his hands if he does indeed off Daryl as he promised on Entertainment Weekly Radio (although we’re pretty sure he was kidding). Regardless, Dixon devotees are likely to gasp at this exclusive new image from season 5 of the zombie drama, which returns in October on AMC. (Click on the Full Size magnifying tab to view the full image in all of its high resolution glory.)
In it, we see a bloodied and bruised Daryl, who has also been gagged and bound…and not in a sexy way as legions of ladies no doubt dream about on a daily basis. (Or maybe this is considered sexy. I have no idea. People are into some freaky stuff.) READ FULL STORY
Of course Outlander is going to Comic-Con. Starz has already announced the eagerly anticipated fantasy series will have its world premiere screening at the San Diego fan event later this month. Now there are panel plans as well.
The Outlander panel will be on Friday, July 25 at 2:15 p.m. Confirmed attending: Showrunner Ronald D. Moore, author of the Outlander novels Diana Gabaldon, and the cast including Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Tobias Menzies, Graham McTavish, and Lotte Verbeek. (Oh, and I’m going to moderate.)
As fans of Gabaldon’s books know, Outlander is a romance-fantasy-historical-adventure tale following a married WWII combat nurse (Balfe) who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is forced to marry a young Scottish warrior (Heughan). But will Outlander become the next big fantasy hit? … Or the next Camelot? Here’s the most recent trailer: READ FULL STORY
Something wicked must be brewing in San Diego, as Fox Television has promised a first-time appearance from FX series American Horror Story during Comic-Con. In fact, the members of last season’s coven—including Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates, through to Sarah Paulson and Emma Roberts—will make an appearance.
In a press release, Fox also promised 24‘s Kiefer Sutherland, who will arrive for a 24 retrospective, as well as more first-time witchery from Salem and Witches of East End.
The bros are getting the whole gang together for Comic-Con. And by the whole gang, we mean everyone from Kevin Bacon, to the guys from Supernatural, to Mike Tyson.

Whichever direction you happen to be traveling in the space-time continuum, the countdown to this November’s special Doctor Who 50th anniversary show can now be said to have officially begun. Why? Because the BBC has unveiled the Matt Smith-, David Tennant-, and John Hurt-featuring poster for the episode, which you can see above. The Corporation has also confirmed the show, which is titled “Day of the Doctor,” will be a supersized 75 minutes long.
“‘The Day of the Doctor is nearly here!'” said Doctor Who Matt Smith in a statement. “Hope you all enjoy. There’s lots more coming your way, as the countdown to the 50th begins now.” (See? Told you.)
On those rare occasions when current and past stars of Doctor Who filmed episodes together the air has sometimes turned a tad chilly. But “Tenth Doctor” David Tennant says there were no such problems when, earlier this year, he and his TARDIS successor Matt Smith shot this November’s special 50th anniversary show.
Season 3 of The Walking Dead was a bit of a rough road for Carl Grimes, what with him having to watch his mother die and then put a bullet in her brain so she did not come back as a zombie. Oh, and then he had to sit there while his dad went off the proverbial deep end. Will things be any better when AMC’s zombie drama picks up again for season 4 on Oct. 13? And where does the relationship between Papa Grimes and son stand?
“When Lori died the group was a lot smaller,” says Chandler Riggs (who plays Carl) in the video interview below, which was taken during Riggs’ Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). “So at the end of the season about 50 people [from Woodbury] got off that bus. And so now that there’s 50 more people in the group, Rick and Carl might have some more time to get closer together. Or not.” Way to be cagey!

So many mysteries when it comes to AMC’s The Walking Dead. How did the zombie apocalypse begin? Why is everyone infected? Are there any safe areas left? Also, how is it that crossbow-wielding badass Daryl Dixon never manages to run out of arrows? We went straight to the source for answers and asked the man who plays Dixon, Norman Reedus, for an explanation.
“I try to recycle the arrows as much as possible,” says Reedus in the video interview below while taking a break from his Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). He’s got a point there as you often do see Daryl pull an arrow out of the skull of a walker he’s just put down. But still, with that few arrows at his disposal, and considering all the times he isn’t able to reuse one, it would seem he would have run out by now, right? “They go on runs and we raid places and this is Georgia so that is one of the weapons that people hunt with,” says Reedus. “So it’s not unheard of to find more arrows.” Reedus also assumes there is off-screen replenishment going on. “When you show this large of a time frame, there’s a lot of things that are sort of understood. You never see us go to the bathroom, but we do that.”
Reedus also spoke eloquently about the evolution of his character and how his on-screen brother Merle’s death has changed Daryl. As Reedus explains, with Merle gone, “Daryl has the opportunity to become the man he was never going to be.” To hear more from the man on all things Daryl Dixon, click on the video player below.

Adaptations have always had to tread the thin line between faithfulness and keeping things fresh — and the show Under the Dome is no different.
Adapted from Stephen King’s popular novel, the CBS show has had to somehow deviate from the original source work, in which the action only lasts a total of six days, in order to produce some longevity for the series.
Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Breznican had the pleasure of sitting down with Dean Norris, Mike Vogel, and Rachelle Lefevre to discuss their summer hit. Check out their thoughts on the adaptation and the role of bad guys below:
