Reign Season 2 Scoop from Comic Con.

Three of French Court’s finest — Toby Regbo, Megan Follows, Adelaide Kane — and executive producer Laurie McCarthy addressed their subjects at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, spilling a king’s ransom of secrets from Reign‘s upcoming second season.

Kane said Mary and Francis’ marriage is “going well so far,” though McCarthy warned Frary fans that they should be “a little nervous” about the couple’s future in Season 2. Francis and Mary will face countless obstacles, both “political” and sometimes “horrific.”
One of the latter elements will be the guilt hanging over Francis’ head following the murder of his father. “It’s going to eat me up inside, I imagine,” Regbo said.
“Season 2 is very much about what goes on beyond the castle walls,” McCarthy explained, noting that many nobles have been waiting for their day in court — so to speak — with Mary, Francis and Catherine

And it sounds like Henry will be getting some company up in heaven — JK, we all know he’s in hell! — as the plague lands at Court “with a vengeance,” McCarthy teased. “Not everyone will survive it, among our people as well as a percentage of the regional population.” Those deaths, she revealed, will begin in Episode 1.
“What rises from the ashes of the plague” will also be interesting, McCarthy continued. “It’s about [Francis] inheriting a nation that is, in fact, burning.”

The situation between Francis, Mary and Lola will be “awkward,” following the birth of Francis and Lola’s child, Kane noted. Meanwhile, the dynamic between Mary and Catherine will remain unfathomably tense. (“There isn’t enough power to go around,” Follows explained.)

“There’s a chance for anything,” McCarthy said when asked about a potential Frary baby. “They’re going to try to make it happen.” (Kane said she’s excited to have “awkward” fake sex with Regbo on Saturday.)
For all you history buffs, it doesn’t sound like Francis will be dying on Reign as quickly as he did in real life. “I’m in no rush to say goodbye to Toby or Francis,” McCarthy said, adding that she’s a total Frary shipper.

And don’t count on the Mary-Francis-Bash love triangle returning anytime soon — or ever.
“They’ll always have a special relationship,” Kane said of Mary and Bash moving forward. “I just don’t think they’ll bang.”

Under the Dome Season 2 Comic Con Scoop.

From the clips they showed today at Comic-Con, the second season of Under The Dome is about to get a lot harsher. Big Jim is on the warpath, Barbie is on the move and what’s underneath Chester’s Mill might turn out to be as deadly as the dome that’s over top of it. ”No one is safe under the dome,” said EP Neal Baer on whether more characters would die on the CBS summer drama on today’s UTD panel

“We kept the body count down for the beginning of the season so we can rev it up towards the end,” Baer added. “There are no set rules,” the EP also remarked about whether previous passed away characters could come back. And, as the about 5 minute Episode 7 clip set to air on August 11, hinted with Mike Vogel’s character of Dale “Barbie” Barbara fall into a deep cavern, the dome itself proves not to be so impregnable. “One of our characters might get out of the dome this season, literally,” said Baer. “We just finished shooting last week and we know the ending but we won’t tell you.” After the video played, Vogel joked with a series of goodbyes to his fellow panelists and the crowd but it seems unlikely the lead will be one of the departed. If for no other reason than the actor revealed later that more of the characters’ background, secrets and why he really joined the military will become known further in the season.

The EP and Vogel were joined on the panel today in a nearly standing room only Ballroom 20 by cast members Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford and Eddie Cahill. This is UTD’s second visit to the geekfest. The Steven Spielberg produced series based on the writings of Stephen King made a big splash with its series debut last year. A smash hit for CBS when it debuted on, UTD was renewed by the network for a 13-episode second season back in late July 2013. Though the series retuned down this season, it has still proven a strong DVR draw for CBS.

“We’ve set it up so we can keep
going because we have a lot of stories to tell, “ said Baer of the series being planned out to at least three to five seasons. Calling the series “a parable for our times,” Baer also noted that “we’ve gone bit beyond the book” I in reference to King’s novel. “We talk to Steven all the time and he reads every script and loves it when we kill a character,” said the EP of the author’s involvement, “and you can’t forget Steven and his people at Amblin” The evil Big Jim told the crowd he loved King’s direct involvement with UTD the TV show. “It’s great to see him on the set and its great to know he was a voice and is guiding the show,” said former Breaking Bad actor Norris.

Kevin Frazier, co-host of The Insider, moderated the UTD panel, which ended with a trailer for Spielberg’s other CBS series, the new Extant starring Halle Berry – maybe Extant will be here in San Diego next year.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Scoop.

More details have been unleashed on the opening episode of The Walking Dead season five premiere, which will be something that fans will not want to miss.

On Wednesday, Wet Paint posted the news from showrunner Scott Gimple’s interview with TV Guide Magazine. He mentioned something that will be different about Rick, which might come off as frightening to say the least.

"He does feel affection for a great number of people in the railcar, so he’s going to harness his more savage and brutal side to protect them," Gimple said.

The showrunner also went on with more details on Terminus and how it’s going to change the characters and quite possibly the aspect of the show.

"We’re going to learn a lot more about it, and it’s going to have far-reaching effects on our characters this season," Gimple said. "[The premiere] is epic, intimate, emotional, insane, bloody and- hopefully- surprising."

The showrunner didn’t stop there; he went on about what’s going to happen to the characters as the series continues and what kinds of challenges they could face.

"The season is about who these characters have become," Gimple revealed. "They have survived getting out of the prison, they’ve been on these journeys and they’re going to be facing some pretty heavy stuff that is going to define who they are as people moving forward."

This could cause a number of questions, including what exactly is going to take place, involving more violence, zombie fighting and maybe even more death coming along.

The Walking Dead Season 5 is expected to premiere this October on AMC.

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Scoop from TvLine

As rollicking a final stretch as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivered at the close of Season 1, the fact is the ABC series had to spend much of its freshman run “treading water,” until Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit the big screen and — movie spoiler alert – toppled the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization in every sense of the word.

But when we last tuned into TV’s take on the Marvel-verse, Nick Fury (Hey, Samuel L. Jackson!) resurfaced sans eyepatch to name Phil Coulson the new director of the shattered S.H.I.E.L.D. In doing so, was a baton passed in more ways than one? Is it now incumbent on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to move the narrative to a certain place before The Avengers: Age of Ultron storms the Cineplex on May 1, 2015 — right at the start of TV’s sweeps period, natch.

And might said destination have to fall shy of Coulson successfully rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D., given recent hints about where Age of Ultron picks things up with Tony Stark, Black Widow et al?

Not surprisingly, given the Level 10 top-secrecy surrounding all things Marvel-ous, exec producer Jed Wheon at first hedged, “We can’t say much,” when TVLine asked if the TV series is tasked with getting S.H.I.E.L.D. from “Point B to Point C” during its sophomore run. He then allowed — echoing the Season 1B theme — “Everything is connected, sometimes more so than other times. Obviously Coulson was born out of the films, and we can only hope to have that sort of impact in the other direction.
“But right now,” he added, “we’re just trying to make everybody as cool and interesting as we can.”

During a previous conversation with TVLine, Whedon’s fellow EP (and wife) Maurissa Tancharoen offered on the exact same topic, in measured words, “All of us are aware of the moving parts at all times. With that said, there are many opportunities for planting things that… end up in other things.”
Whedon himself then revealed this much: “Let’s put it this way: In the second season, there’s definitely a milestone that everybody needs to hit.”

ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee last week acknowledged that “it took time to find our sea legs” with S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s first season, given the way it needed to dovetail with Winter Soldier‘s April release date. But the aftermath of that, he promised, “triggered a whole lot of [Season 2] storylines that we’re reading at the moment, and I’m loving those scripts. I feel good.”

Arrow Season 3 Info.

FULL ARSENAL | Guggenheim admits that one of Season 2′s shortcomings was the incorporation of Roy into Team Arrow, stop-and-start and scattershot as it was due to the Mirakuru mess. So going into the fall, “I’d love to see us stick the landing a bit better” with regards to Roy’s role among our heroes. “This year you really feel like he is a part of Team Arrow, in a very integral way.” That includes suiting Roy up (EW has a fun first look at Arsenal) as well as “exploring the repercussions” of his Mirakru’d rampage. “He went through this major trauma, and we always said that was necessary for him to become a hero,” the EP reminds. “But this is the year we get to play with all of that.”

BACK WITH A BANG | Seeing as Episode 2 is titled “Sara,” it should come as no surprise that Caity Lotz’s Arrow days are not over just yet. And she still has some bon mots left in her quiver. “Her first line [upon returning] is one of my favorites…. She says something amazing. It’s like a movie trailer line,” Guggenheim effuses. “In fact, it may end up in a commercial or something.”

OH, BABY! | When last we tuned in, amidst so, so much mayhem and destruction, Diggle learned that he’s going to be a daddy. “Diggle has some major storylines coming up — the biggest obviously being Lilah is pregnant,” Guggenheim notes. Specifically, the EP singles out Episode 3 as “very Diggle-oriented” (though perhaps not to the same degree as “Keep Your Enemies Closer” or “Suicide Squad”).
