Fear the Walking Dead and Walking Dead Crossover revealed


Crossovers. Universe building. They seem to be all the rage. They are…

The latest buzz is a crossover between The Walking Dead and spinoff show Fear the Walking Dead as Lennie James who plays Morgan starts filming scenes in Austin, Texas for FTWD today. At the moment it seems like Morgan will become a regular on Fear the Walking Dead.

In a statement read out on Talking Dead, an after show discussion about The Walking Dead episodes after they air, Scott M. Gimple the show runner of The Walking Dead had a statement read out:

“Morgan’s arc 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.”


Perhaps this is not permanent…Hopefully… In reality his story with Rick and the group has come to a conclusion as they have parted ways. If Morgan works his anger out through some violence he can see the world differently? Catharsis? No? He’s a great character well played by Lennie James and will be a great addition to FTWD without a shadow of a doubt.

Considering previous comments by Robert Kirkman co-creator of Fear the Walking Dead and creator of The Walking Dead comics FTWD’s timeline takes place around series one and two of TWD positioning Morgan after him and Rick part. There is a way Morgan can come back to TWD yet it’s exciting for fans of FTWD to see a Morgan we have not seen for eight years.

Robert Kirkman confirmed the crossover at New York Comic Con in October and now Morgan is going to appear in series four of Fear the Walking Dead to air next year.

David has an undergraduate degree in Drama and first showed symptoms of a mind blown by cinema after watching The Godfather too many years ago to remember. He enjoys binge watching TV shows because that is the only way to watch them, right? The West Wing, The Sopranos and The Wire rank among his favourites of all time; the list could go on but changes the more he watches. Books, comics and games are also enjoyed in different moods. Finishing that novel is a life ambition.
