Comic-Con was this past weekend and every single TV show you care about was there, dropping news and trailers left and right. NO TIME TO TALK, JUST SHOVE ALL OF THIS INTO YOUR EYEHOLES:
Westworld will return on HBO in 2020.
Vanity Fair‘s Joana Robinson does a good breakdown on the trailer and what it could all portend for what is supposed to be a less confusing season. We will see about that.
The Walking Dead returns on AMC on October 6 with the Whispers War, and this trailer, holy shit. At Comic-Con, Robert Kirkman warned fans to not expect the show to have the same ending as the comic books. Also, that Rick Grimes movie? It’s coming to theaters, not TV. Danai Gurira did confirm that this will be her last season, which I thought we already knew? Anyway.

Big news for my nemesis, The Orville, which is moving to Hulu for its third season. Apparently, it was going to take too long to make season three in time for a midseason debut, so thanks to the Disney/Fox merger, it made sense to move it over to Hulu which is going to be fully owned by Disney soon.
The Bob’s Burgers movie, which is happening, is going to be a musical. Considering the series is a musical, this is not exactly news.
Supernatural had an emotional final Comic-Con appearance and gave away Baby, the Chevy Impala to one very lucky fan in the audience. And they broke some casting news that you can find below.
The Good Place also had an emotional final panel, as you can see from Kristen Bell’s Instagram account:
And speaking of final panels, Game of Thrones. Benioff and Weiss dropped out of the panel, leaving the show’s stars to defend the show’s final season on their own. Nikolaj Coster-Wadlau claimed the level of vitriol towards the finale was surprising, but added the show has always been controversial and that “when it comes to the end it’s gonna piss you off no matter what, because it’s the end.” Conleth Hill went with claiming the fans’ reaction was inflamed by a hateful media. Ummm … no?
Maisie Williams debunked a sexist theory that Arya had help from Jon Sow in getting to the Night King. And Isaac Hempstead-Wright claims that Bran didn’t know for certain he would become king, therefore he’s not evil. I’m not buying it.
When Nikolaj Coster-Wadlau claimed that Jaime and Cersei’s endings were “perfect,” someone went full Joe Wilson and shouted “LIAR!” at him. I agree with the would-be Joe Wilson. And when someone asked Jacob Anderson why Grey Worm didn’t just kill Jon Snow, he pulled down a Spiderman mask, before replying that Grey Worm “was just tired of it all.” Alright. Also, apparently Grey Worm has a penis, just no balls. And now you know.
