The “Doctor Who” 50th Anniversary Panel at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con.

San Diego Comic Con has drawn to a close, and now we look back on the events of the television-heavy yet uneventful final day.

True Blood Goes Back to Basics – Brian Buckner, the new show-runner for True Blood, has claimed that they are going to go “back to their roots” for the coming season. Starting off as a small town mystery in Alan Ball’s first season, season six opens with sweeping politics and the promise of sunny vampire death camps. It is not yet clear how that makes the two seasons similar, but longtime fans will see over the course of the currently airing season.

Supernatural Spin-off in Development – It was announced by Supernatural executive producer Bob Singer that a spin-off is being planned featuring a character that has not yet made an appearance on the show. Not much more was said, besides the fact that the character will be introduced in Episode 20 of the current season.

Smith bids adieu to Doctor Who – The Doctor Who 50th anniversary trailer rocked the faces of many a Whovian as well, with the trailer boasting favored numbers Ten and Eleven, as well as an appearance from beloved companion Rose. At the Doctor Who panel, Steven Moffat insists that he has not yet cast the new Doctor, with Matt Smith leaving after the Christmas special this coming Winter, Moffat has a little time….but not much. Matt Smith also walked the floor of SDCC disguised as Bart Simpson.
