'Breaking Bad' at Comic-Con: A group hug to say goodbye

Before the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad begin airing on August 11, EW caught up with creator Vince Gilligan and stars Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, RJ Mitte, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk at Comic-Con.

Although they were tightlipped about what will happen to Walter White and co, they did talk about the show’s achievements, the possible Saul spinoff — and what it was like saying goodbye.

“My last day of filming was really nice,” Gunn said. “Aaron, Bryan [Cranston] and I had a little group hug.”

'True Blood' cast spills secrets at Comic-Con

Did you know True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello has two fake front teeth? Or that Anna Camp bases the portrayal of her (sometimes) prim character on her own mother? EW Managing Editor Jess Cagle sat down with the cast, including Anna Paquin, Rutina Wesley, Ryan Kwanten, Deborah Ann Woll, Nelsan Ellis, Anna Camp, Sam Trammel, Michael McMillian, Manganiello, and newcomer Rob Kazinsky, and asked them to tell us something new — and maybe kinda weird — about themselves. Their answers might surprise you! READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries' at Comic-Con: The cast on Elena and Damon, the big 100th episode, and college plans

The Project: The Vampire Diaries

The Panel: Nina Dobrev (Elena), Ian Somerhalder (Damon), Paul Wesley (Stefan), Kat Graham (Bonnie), Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes), Caroline Dries (writer), Julie Plec (Executive Producer), moderated by Debra Birnbaum

Footage Screened: Before the panel began, the audience got a three-part recap of the past four seasons, with one focusing on the most recent and Silas. The others played as a kind of “best of” compilation of Elena and Stefan, and Elena and Damon. It got pretty sexy.

Snap Judgment: The people have spoken screamed and Damon is the vampire of choice. Somerhalder even pulled out a chair for Executive Producer Julie Plec when she came to join the panel and then gave her and Kat Graham kisses on the cheek. Smooth fellow. But overall, things seem to be in transition in The Vampire Diaries universe, and everyone is getting their footing in these new settings and relationships. Somerhalder said of Elena’s choice, “I thought they were joking. Damon never gets the girl. It’s always Stefan.” Wesley quickly chimed in: “Don’t underplay your sexy blue eyes. Don’t downplay the Smolder-halder.” Then, Wesley added with a laugh, “Enjoy it buddy. I did it for three years.”

'Grimm' Comic-Con panel: Cast, writers tease a different side of Nick and an exciting future for Rosalee/Monroe

The project: NBC’s Grimm

The panel: David Giuntoli (Nick), Russell Hornsby (Hank), Bitsie Tulloch (Juliette), Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe), Reggie Lee (Sgt. Wu), Sasha Roiz (Renard), Bree Turner (Rosalee), Claire Coffee (Adalind), and executive producers Jim Kouf, David Greenwalt, Todd Milliner, and Norberto Barbara.

Footage screened: The first few minutes of season 3 screened for the Comic-Con audience — a scene cut together from footage shot just this past Tuesday. If fans hoped to see footage of Nick post-Baron Samedi attack, they left disappointed, but the clip did feature Monroe, Juliette, and Rosalee escaping from the zombified Portlanders in the container yard, picking up right where season 2 left off. Monroe’s in the driver’s seat — let’s just say he shows off some fast and furious skills here. After the panel discussion, the audience was also treated to a bloody extended trailer for new NBC series Dracula with a video introduction by star Jonathan Rhys Meyers, looking just as creepy in his intro as he does in the show.

'Agents of SHIELD' at Comic-Con: Clark Gregg on Agent Coulson's revival

Phil Coulson died in The Avengers, but he doesn’t stay dead for long. As evidenced by the trailer and pilot for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Clark Gregg’s character is alive and well.

“When they called and said, ‘We think you might not be 100-percent dead,’ my first call was to Joss [Whedon] to say ‘So talk to me about it, so I don’t undermine what we did there,” Gregg says of Coulson’s death and resurrection. Watch more of our interview with Gregg and the rest of the stars of SHIELD below, and see what we thought of the pilot here. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' stars tear up at Comic-Con over final season -- VIDEO

We didn’t mean to make them cry!

The How I Met Your Mother cast — Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, and Jason Segel — sat down with EW’s Laura Hertzfeld at Comic-Con, and what started as a lighthearted interview (“Kiefer Sutherland is the mom!”) turned emotional when we asked what the actors will miss most after their ninth and final season.

See the clearly tight-knit cast (the five of them even shared one couch that would barely fit Segel by himself) open up in the video below:

Robert Kirkman comic 'Clone' gets TV deal

Now zombies. Soon clones?

The Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman has another project being developed for TV. His imprint at Image Comics debuted Clone from writer/creator David Schulner late last year and now the title is getting a TV development deal with NBC Universal (call it the Orphan Black Effect).

The logline: “What if there were more of you? And what if you could save those versions of yourself from being killed. The show’s themes of identity and nature verses nurture are intrinsic to the roller-coaster ride of a story.”

Says Schulner in a statement: “I knew if I went off the rails too badly Robert would be there to put me back on track  Now I’ve been writing the comic for two years, issue #9 comes out next week and I just finished writing issue 15, so to be able to turn it into a television show is just icing on the cake.”

'How I Met Your Mother' at Comic-Con: 'Let's Go to the Mall' sing-along and 'the highest of fives'

The Project: CBS’ How I Met Your Mother

The Panel: Neil Patrick Harris (Barney), Cobie Smulders (Robin), Josh Radnor (Ted), Jason Segel (Marshall), Alyson Hannigan (Lily), Carter Bays (co-creator and executive producer), Craig Thomas (co-creator and executive producer), Pam Fryman (director and executive producer), and EW’s own Sandra Gonzalez moderating

Footage Screened: No season 9 sneak peeks, but the intro video showed Ted’s exasperated kids (Lyndsey Fonseca and David Henrie) at the end of their rope after eight years of listening to the world’s longest stream-of-consciousness story. Watch the “kids” (who are now twentysomethings) go on an F-bomb-riddled rant below:

'Once Upon a Time' Comic-Con panel: The Little Mermaid to appear in season 3

The Panel: Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis, Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White/Mary Margaret), Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan), Josh Dallas (Prince Charming/David), Emilie de Ravin (Belle/Lacey), Collin O’Donoghue (Captain Hook), Robert Carlyle (Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold), Lana Parilla (Evil Queen/Regina), Michael Raymond-James (Balefire/Neal) READ FULL STORY

'Bates Motel' at Comic-Con: Season 2 teases and the Case of the Missing Freddie Highmore

The project: A&E’s Bates Motel

The panel: Actors Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke, and Max Thieriot; executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin

Footage screened: In lieu of a sneak peek of season 2, the whole panel (including EW’s Dan Snierson as moderator) pretended something fishy and secretive had happened causing Freddie to not make it in today. It could only be explained in a gag reel video — in which we saw Freddie visit the writers’ room during hiatus, enthusiastic and ready to get back to work, only to brutally learn his character was essentially being written out of the show so that recent Best Actress in a Drama Emmy nominee Vera Farmiga could get even more screen time. Carlton Cuse then golf-carted Freddie over to the original Psycho house and left him there. Freddie became infuriated after seeing a Norman Bates impersonator carry a body bag out and dump it in the trash. “What in the bloody hell?!” Freddie wondered. He approached the Universal Studios employee: “I DON’T THINK YOU’RE A NICE MAN.” Creepy sound effect sequence! And cut to: A bloody-shirted Freddie lugging another, Norman Bates-sized body bag onto the heap. He’s officially driven himself psycho.

… And here Freddie is now, in Ballroom 6A at Comic-Con!  READ FULL STORY

'Big Bang Theory': How did Johnny Galecki pull off his Comic-Con surprise? -- VIDEO

The Big Bang Theory panel at Comic-Con started out routine enough. All the writers and producers filed out onstage, and the only star in sight was Melissa Rauch, who plays Bernadette on the show and moderated Friday’s panel.

But when a “fan” approached the mic in Princess Leia’s Return of the Jedi disguise, the mask was removed and BBT leading man Johnny Galecki was revealed. So how did he pull off such a big surprise? And why the Leia costume (“Not the bikini. I wore that underneath,” he quipped)?

EW’s Sandra Gonzalez gets those answers and a tease of what’s coming next in season 7 in the video below:
