0

Lytherus was on hand for nearly every major Comic-Con television panel this year — from The Walking Dead to its alien counterpart, Falling Skies, and everything in between, including Game of Thrones, Revolution, Lost Girl, Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time, Elementary, and more! Our coverage reveals exclusive spoilers, details, videos, and more!

Revolution – a new post-apocalypse television show

Revolution is a story about family and doing everything to protect them. It is also a huge ‘what if’ scenario that has really yet to be touched on in the way that Revolution explores. Humans have a huge dependency on power and electricity. If that were taken away where we would be? What would you do in that situation?

 

Game of Thrones

Grab your house shirts, and listen to George R. R. Martin ask some poignant questions to his cast. That was the general consensus in the Game of Thrones panel at Comic-Con. Joining him in the panel was executive producer Carolyn Strauss, along with Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Michelle Fairley, and Richard Madden.

 

Dragons: Riders of Berk: the television follow up to “How to Train Your Dragon”

Dreamworks Dragons: Riders of Berk continues the story of How to Train Your Dragon. All of the original characters will be returning with most of the original voice cast and new characters will be introduced throughout the show. Set in the town of Berk, Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) has changed the way the world thinks of dragons. Instead of relentlessly hunting them, humans are now learning to coexist and train the dragons.

 

Lost Girl

The show is originally a Canadian television show, that the US’s network Syfy recently picked up. The US is currently about a half a season behind, so the panelists were careful not to spoil the largely American audience. Included in the panelists were actors Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried, and Ksenia Solo, as well as executive producer and writer Emily Andras.

 

Once Upon a Time – preview season two!

Once Upon a Time was one of San Diego Comic-Con’s most buzzed-about TV show panels — and we have an exclusive summary of the panel’s biggest and most exciting moments! With staff and show creators coming together to discuss the show’s smash-hit debut season and its upcoming second season on ABC, this panel was one you wouldn’t want to miss. Lytherus was on hand to cover the panel in full!

 

Falling Skies

Whether you’re a skitter, mech, harnessed, or human, the Falling Skies panel at San Diego’s Comic Con had a little something for everyone. Joined by members of the cast, and show runner Remi Aubuchon, the audience was treated to several never before seen clips of upcoming episodes, and showered with spoilers for the current season.Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Carter, and Connor Jessup were all present, as well as a secret guest who showed up later on during the panel. Will Wheaton hosted the panel.

 

The Walking Dead – season 3 exclusive reveals and more

There were many spoiler morsels handed out at the panel Friday the 13th. The panelists were happy to give the audience hints of what is to come, and shared some insights into the set. Included on the panel were executive producers Robert Kirkman, Dave Alpert, and Greg Nicotero (also a special effects supervisor). Those from the cast present were: Andrew Lincoln, Sarah Wayne Callies, Norman Reedus, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira(introduced as Michonne), and David Morrissey (introduced as The Governor). The Talking Dead’s Chris Hardwick moderated the panel.

 

Elementary – CBS’s response to the BBC’s massively-popular Sherlock

After a failed attempt at buying the rights to adapt the BBC’s wildly successful “Sherlock” series, CBS responded by launching their own buzzed about (and controversial) alternative: Elementary, starring a female Watson. The cast and crew headed to this year’s Comic-Con to preview and discuss the show. The newest Sherlock Holmes (played by Jonny Lee Miller) adaptation brings us the same super observant detective but with a few twists.

 

Dexter – sneak peek at the upcoming season

Impatient fans love sneak peeks, and the cast and crew of Dexter delivered at this year’s Comic-Con, showing off a seven minute long preview of the first episode from the upcoming season!

 

True Blood

HBO’s True Blood creator Alan Ball and the cast gave us the pleasure of descending on San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday to reveal some awesome, funny, and sexy behind the scenes dish and a few minor spoilers for the remainder of Season 5.

 

The Vampire Diaries

Last season on The Vampire Diaries, the audience was left with the cliffhanger of knowing that Elena had been turned into a vampire. That was clearly the thought on the audiences’ minds when entering the panel. Julie Plec (executive producer and writer) describes how these changes in Elena will affect the character and the show, as well as a few spoilers on the original family of vampires that the audience has come to love. In the panel was another executive producer Kevin Williamson. Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Michael Trevino, and Zach Roerig from the cast joined the panel as well.

 

Marvel and Disney team up for a Marvel-themed episode of Phineas and Ferb

Marvel and Disney Channel have big plans for next year. Disney Channel will air a special episode of the wildly popular animated show Phineas and Ferb, and Spider-man, along with the Avengers, will guest star. The episode, titled Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, will feature several Marvel villains, such as M.O.D.O.K, Red Skull, Venom, and Whiplash.
