It's Fringe's last stand.
Just three days into shooting the fifth and final season, Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv, Lance Reddick and showrunner J.H. Wyman waxed poetic over the final season, which sees the series jump ahead to 2036, where the Observers have taken over the Earth and the only people able to save the world is the former Fringe Division team members we've grown to know and love over the last four seasons.
Fox at TCAs: All the latest news
The Fox sci-fi series will say farewell in a 13-episode love letter to the fans who have stuck with the series through the low ratings, the dual universes and even the move to the so-called "death slot" Fridays. Though Fringe is ending, Jackson says it's not bittersweet for him. "All shows end," he told reporters at Fox's Television Critics Association fall TV previews Monday. "I'd rather have...

It's Friends all over again — and that's a good thing.
When last we saw the Happy Endings bunch, Dave (Zachary Knighton) had shared a moment with both Penny (Casey Wilson) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) at their friends' wedding, which took the slow-building love triangle to the next level. Would he get back together with Alex, the runaway bride who left him at the altar? Or take a chance with longtime friend Penny, who has always been his rock? Dave and Alex's hand-holding in the closing moments of the finale was definitely an indication of what's to come next season.
"It feels like Dave and Alex need to...

Ding dong! The Guardian is dead!
True Blood bid farewell to Christopher Meloni on Sunday after Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare) turned the tables on Vampire Authority Guardian Roman, staking him in the heart and seemingly driving a nail in the coffin of the mainstreaming movement, which has seen centuries-old vampires assimilate into the human world on the HBO series.
Comic-Con: True Blood promises more wacky sex and naked Joe Manganiello!
How will Roman's death affect the war between the mainstreamers led by the supposedly devoted Authority and the ruthless Sanguinistas, who wouldn't hesitate to rip out your spine on live television and drink your blood for sport (Hello, Russell!)?
To get the scoop, TVGuide.com turned to Deborah Ann Woll, who plays teenage vamp Jessica, who says Roman's death and the arrival of original vampire Lilith will impact the rest of the season. Plus: How will Jason (Ryan Kwanten) feel towards Jessica now that he knows vampires were the cause of his parents' death?

The prison setting for the third season of The Walking Dead may offer Rick (Andrew Lincoln) & Co. some semblance of safety, but if the group ever expects to survive, the group's new dictator — or Ricktator — must first get his own house in order.
The Walking Dead's season premiere date, trailer and 8 more tidbits from the Comic-Con panel
At the end of Season 2, Rick's wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) pulled a Lady MacBeth and essentially told him to kill Shane (Jon Bernthal), lest the group fall victim to his increasingly manic, dangerous behavior. However, once Rick murdered Shane — whose zombie reincarnation was then killed by Rick's son Carl (Chandler Riggs) — Lori turned her back on him. What does this mean for the "first family" of the survivors?
"Part of that horror you saw in that last episode was revulsion in her part in that," executive producer Glen Mazzara explains. "I think she...

As Fringe prepares to launch its fifth and final season, speculation runs wild on how the Fringe Division — or what's left of it in 2036 — will be able to save the world from the Observers, who run rampant in the future after enslaving humanity back in 2016.
"It's the worst position they've ever been in," executive producer J.H. Wyman tells TVGuide.com. "Just by the very nature of an Observer, they think much faster than you, they have abilities that you do not have. They just know more about everything, about time and space. They're going to have to really get it together to beat these guys."

I'm in denial that it's the final season of Fringe. Give me scoop to help me cope. Please? —Chris
NATALIE: Peter and his daughter Henrietta reunited last season, but her run-in with her mom Olivia will surprise you. "It takes on a slightly different flavor than I think you would anticipate," Joshua Jackson tells us, noting that it will happen very quickly in the season premiere. The real question executive producer J.H. Wyman wants fans to ponder is: What happened to the Fringe team the day the Observers arrived? "How did they get in amber? How did Olivia and Peter and everyone get separated? Why were they all together? Why was Bell there? The history will surprise you when you realize there's a lot of emotions going on for reasons that you don't know yet, but you will."

When Homeland returns to Showtime in September, one thing will be missing: Carrie's memory.
That's right, Carrie's (Claire Danes) trip to electroshock therapy will have suppressed her sudden realization that Brody (Damian Lewis) once said "Issa," the name of Abu Nazir's son, in his sleep. That information helped her piece together Brody's revenge-based motive for betraying his country. Still, that's not to say those memories won't surface sometime during the second season of the Golden Globe-winning series.

The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory's Howard has boldly gone where few men have gone before, but it turns out he won't be so bold during his time in orbit. In fact, he'll be bullied even in space.
After blasting off in the season finale, Howard (Simon Helberg) will still be orbiting Earth when the series returns this fall. But it won't be the fun trip Fruit Loops was hoping for. "I don't know if he's going to be that well-adjusted when we come back," Helberg told TVGuide.com following Friday's Comic-Con panel. "From what I hear, he gets...
