The news out of San Diego Comic-Con 2016 can feel
a bit extremely overwhelming, as it seems like a new bombshell is dropped every other minute.
So to keep track of everything, we pulled together the biggest reveals of SDCC. Take a look below to get all the latest scoop.
It’s a Simples Rules reunion on BBT
Katey Sagal is heading to The Big Bang Theory Season 10 to play mom to Kaley Cuoco’s character Penny. This should be easy for the 62-year-old as she was Kaley’s momma on ABC’s 2002 sitcom 8 Simple Rules for three simple seasons.
The gorgeous brunette will make her debut in this fall’s premiere, along with 30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer, who’s stepping in as her son and Penny’s brother.
We Get a Game of Thrones Season 7 Teaser
New Game of Thrones episodes may be nearly a year away, but the cast and crew wants you to know they’re actually hard at work.
To calm everyone down about the likelihood of Daenerys's invasion, HBO also gave us the hilarious Season 6 blooper reel.
The Vampire Diaries is ending after next season
It’s official: The Vampire Diaries will end after its upcoming Season 8.
The cast confirmed the final season with a moving video looking back on its previous seven years of love, hot guys, and vampirism.
“This show has enriched my life greater than anything I've done in my career and it will live in my heart,” star Ian Somerhalder said. “We are a family and I will miss you.”
The 37-year-old’s TV brother Paul Wesley, 34, was equally emotional, saying, “I'm beyond fortunate for the experiences I've had and lessons I've learned over the last seven years.”
It’s still unknown if Nina Dobrev will return for TVD’s final chapter, which will be 16 episodes long.
Rihanna’s going Psycho
RiRi is going to work, work, work, work, work at Bates Motel. The self-described bad bitch, 29, announced via video she’s scored the iconic role of Marion Crane in the A&E drama’s fifth and final season.
The Psycho version of Marion was originated by Jamie Lee Curtis’s mom Janet Lee and meets her memorable end in the shower when she’s stabbed to death by Norman Bates.
Scream Queens adds another hot guy
The 28-year-old Teen Wolf alum’s role is unknown, but he will definitely appear in one episode and possibly more. Let’s pray to Ryan Murphy he joins that John Stamos-Glen Powell nude scene.
Starz to Make Americans God Again
In the competition for Your New Favorite Show, Starz’s American Gods is up there — especially after its first trailer dropped yesterday.
The fantasy novel adaption follows an ex-convict named Shadow Moon, who winds up caught between the “old gods” of America — like Love and Odin — and the “new,” including Media.
Ian McShane, Ricky Whittle, Gillian Anderson, and Pablo Schreiber are all part of the amazing cast, which Kristin Chenoweth officially joined on Friday.
Ghost Rider racing to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
Comic-book antihero Ghost Rider is joining Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 4, marking the character’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
True Detective actor Gabriel Luna has been tapped to play the skeletal character and his alter ego Robbie Reyes — a different incarnation from the Rider Nic Cage made famous in the theatrical adaptations.
Netflix triples down on its super heros
Netflix gives Marvel fans even more to be excited about with trailers for non-caped crusader shows Luke Cage and Iron Fist, which will premiere September 30 and sometime in 2017, respectively.
The two series are stand-alone companion pieces to Daredevil and Jessica Jones. All four NYC super heroes will come together for 2017’s The Defenders, which also got a trailer.
