Supernatural fans at San Diego Comic-Con had a special treat this year. Not only did Misha Collins (Castiel) bring donuts to those waiting in line, but the panel opened with Kansas on stage playing “Carry on Wayward Son.” As panel hosts Richard Speight, Jr. (Gabriel) and Rob Benedict (Chuck) pointed out, it felt like a sign that Supernatural has really made it. Apparently, they weren’t the only ones excited to see the band because Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester), Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) and Misha Collins surprised fans when they stood in the back of Hall H to watch Kansas perform. You never know you might see in the crowd at San Diego Comic-Con, especially at a Supernatural panel. Continue reading
The 21st century is all about the celebration of fandom and convention culture. There’s nothing cooler than nerding out about your favorite show, actor, book, or cause. With conventions being part of the mainstream, Supernatural alumni Richard Speight, Jr, and Rob Benedict have taken con culture a step further by creating a digital series called Kings of Con, currently streaming on Comic-Con HQ. The scripted series is loosely based on their real experiences, but takes a comedic approach to the convention world. Continue reading
The hugely popular series The Walking Dead had a hugely populated panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con this year. Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick moderated the panel, which was so huge he had to do it in two sections. It started with the series producers: Scott Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Dave Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd, and Greg Nicotero, who answered questions about what to expect in Season 7. Then the cast took the stage, including series regulars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Josh McDermitt, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Great storytelling has kept viewers coming back to Supernatural year after year. The cast never misses a chance to share the love with their fans at a convention. They’re regulars at San Diego’s Comic-Con, where attendees had a chance to learn what, and who, to expect during their 12th Season of Supernatural on The CW. Continue reading
AMC’s highly anticipated new series, Fear the Walking Dead, will provide viewers the opportunity to learn what life was like at the start of the outbreak, through the perspective of a family living in East LA. While the first season of the original series, The Walking Dead, focused on the period after the government and society had already collapsed, Fear the Walking Dead will reveal how people initially reacted to the infection, the increasing awareness of the threat, and the chaos that will eventually lead to the fall of modern civilization.
Fans got a first glimpse of Season 6 at The Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con 2015. The sixth season of AMC’s highly rated drama picks up where Season 5 left off, and we will get to see how the people of Alexandria deal with the reality of the outside world. The reunion between Morgan (Lennie James) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) will bring some additional tension into the community because Morgan has a different view of humanity than Rick does. These two men, who have at times had a similar path, have found ways to survive despite the inhumanity that surrounds them. Rick’s low tolerance of those who put his friends and family at risk may run counter to Morgan’s approach of leaving humans alive, even when they’re dangerous to others. Even Daryl’s (Norman Reedus) loyalty to Rick may be tested.
In the Season 5 finale “Conquer” Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) and the people of Alexandria were shocked that one walker could get into their community. Wait until they see what’s in store for them in Season 6. The area around Alexandria has had relatively few walkers, but that’s about to change.
In the upcoming season Nurse Jackie Emmy winner Merritt Wever will play a character from the comic and Ethan Embry, from Grace and Frankie, is also join the cast. Executive Producer Scott Gimple will return to helm for Season 6. Lennie James will become a series regular. During the comic-con panel Gimple revealed that we will learn more about Morgan’s journey through a series of flashbacks.
The Walking Dead Season 6 will premiere on Sunday, October 11th with an extended 90-minute episode. If you can’t wait until the fall for more walker action, AMC’s summer series Fear the Walking Dead will begin airing August 23.
