Happy Friday, indeed. At Comic-Con, fans were treated to a season two sizzle reel before the panel. But most importantly, the last few seconds showed a sneak peek at season three. And when we say "sneak peek," we mean it showed Damon (Ian Somerhalder) without clothes, covered in soapy bubbles. Oh, and Elena (Nina Dobrev) is there, too.
Enjoy the sizzle reel above (watch to the very end!), and then jump on in for news on Game of Thrones, Community, and more in today's TV update…
Game of Thrones: HBO execs took the TCA stage yesterday to chat about Game of Thrones, revealing that production had already started on season two. And those who wish for more than 10 episodes per season are out of luck. The execs said that doing more than 10 episodes would "not be possible" because it would jeopardize the quality with rushing to finish, and the premiere of the new season would be pushed back a long time. Oh, and OhNoTheyDidn't has behind the scenes photos of the statues of the Seven being built on a beach in Castlerock, Northern Ireland.

The Walking Dead: The first episode of season two will be called "Miles Behind Us." Also, Andrew Lincoln is hot. That's not news, but it should always be noted.
Community: Our pal Meg Masters over at TVLine.com reports that Party Down alum Martin Starr will guest star in the second episode of Community's new season. Starr will play the study group's poly-sci professor in the episode, and it's possible he will also reprise his role later on in season three.
Once Upon a Time: Uncle John is dead! But stop your crying because TVD's David Anders has been cast on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He tweeted: "This just in! I'll be joining the cast of Once Upon A Time in episode 3. Can't tell u anymore as it's a secret so SHHH &/or tell the world."
CSI:NY: EW.com is reporting that a former Hellcats star Aly Michalka has nabbed a guest role on CSI:NY for next season. She will play a rocker who "explodes onto the stage of New York's hottest underground clubs." Looks like we'll be hearing Ms. Michalka sing.
Parks and Rec: Tammy One has been cast…and it's awesome! TVLine.com is reporting that Patricia Clarkson will play Ron Swanson's (Nick Offerman) first ex-wife, who has thus far only been seen from behind once. Sure, Offerman didn't get an Emmy nod (still bitter about that), but at least he gets an Oscar-nominated wife.
