Fear the Walking Dead’s crossover character has been revealed

Posted Filed under

It’s been a while since the slightly puzzling idea of a crossover between The Walking Dead and spin-off Fear the Walking Dead was announced (the two shows take place in different timelines and on opposite sites of America), and now we know who will be making the jump.

Our own Lennie James will feature on Fear the Walking Dead, though, as showrunner Scott M. Gimple explained, that doesn’t mean the move is permanent: Even though Morgan is going to be featured on Fear, he has a lot of story left on The Walking Dead.

“Morgan’s arch on The Walking Dead Season 8 positioned him for the story on Fear. It was also important to see Fear‘s world and characters through new yet familiar eyes.

The crossover will happen next year, though it hasn’t been confirmed exactly when we can expect it. More when we hear it.
