It's not exactly surprising news to learn that The Walking Dead will be back for an 11th season. Even with declining ratings, the show remains a huge success for US network AMC. But there was actual news to emerge from the show's panel at this year's New York Comic-Con: Lauren Cohan will be back as Maggie in that next season. Season 10 is about to kick off this month, and from the sounds of it, Cohan will return briefly near the end to bring Maggie back into the fold before she resumes regular status next year.

"The Matrix." Kung Fu choreographer Woo-Ping Yuen initially refused to work on the film, and hoped that by asking for an exorbitant fee, it would turn off the Wachowskis. It didn't. He next formulated what he considered an impossible request. He said that he'd agree only if he had complete control of the fights, and that he trained the actors for four months before they shoot. The Wachowskis complied with his request.

Cohan, who had been having pay disputes with AMC (and had briefly switched to starring in short-lived action/comedy series Whiskey Cavalier made a surprise appearance at the panel to announce her return to the Dead gang. "It's completely surreal," Cohan said onstage. "It feels just like home. It feels so emotional. It feels really, really emotional. I feel like this is a very special Comic-Con and a very special family and I'm really happy to be here."

"Lara Croft: Tomb Raider." Filming the scenes where Lara drives her Land Rover through the jungle there had to be endless re-shoots due to snakes and other wildlife falling through the open top roof. Angelina Jolie herself was reported to be terrified.

Season 10 finds our heroes going up against the Whisperers and figuring out how to make the communities truly work together again. It'll also mark the end of Danai Gurira 's time on the show.
