I can't believe Glee cast a love interest for Rachel! Please give us Finchel fans some hope! — Charlie
NATALIE: Two pieces of bad news and one good one: First, executive producer Ian Brennan tells us that fans will actually like new boy Brody Weston (Dean Geyer). Second, "When we come back, Finn is a mystery; no one has heard from him," he says, noting that once Finn does return, it'll be a great season for Finn fans. And now the good news... sort of: Brennan says Rachel won't just totally forget about Finn. "Rachel has moved cities, but hasn't quite moved on, and is caught in that period between being a teenager and being an adult," he says, "So he's at the forefront of her mind, all the while the rest of her life is totally changing."
Everyone's asking about Booth's reaction to being left behind on Bones, but what about Brennan? How does she feel out on the lam? — Brittany
ADAM: Good question! "Being on the road has made her...
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
NBC is getting into the vampire business.
The network has given a 10-episode series order to Dracula, a series inspired by the classic Bram Stoker character starring The Tudors' Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the titular character, NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt announced Tuesday at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews.
The series will introduce Dracula as...
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.

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...
Ben and Kate
Fox's new series Ben and Kate is a different kind of family comedy, one that marries the best qualities of an ensemble like Friends — in which physical comedy and character growth reigned supreme — with the child-rearing hilarity of Raising Hope. Fortunately, series creator Dana Fox had quite the inspiration for the lead character: her older brother Ben.

Casey Wilson, Zachary Knighton, Elisha Cuthbert
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?

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the upcoming season of The Walking Dead as well as the comics that inspired the AMC series. Read at your own risk.]
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...
Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson
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."
