The fantastic cast of The CW’s cult hit iZombie appeared at San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 21st. While the entire panel was fun, and available to watch (in parts) online, there were a few standout pieces of news.

Most notably, Robert Knepper, who plays Blaine’s even more evil father, will be a SERIES REGULAR next season! To refresh your memory, the last time we saw him, or heard about him…Blaine had trapped him at the bottom of a well. How do we think he’s gonna get out of that?

Personally, I’m glad that I’m learning this news now. I need a little time to get used to it…he was never a character I particularly liked.

Here’s the official video of Knepper announcing his new status:

Also, if you want a few laughs and to relive some good/bad times, check out the iZombie sizzle reel presented before the panel:

While any real spoilers about next season are being kept under wraps, I think it’s safe to say we can expect total chaos, since half of Seattle’s population is now undead.
