Since the spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, was created, fans have been wondering when it will crossover with The Walking Dead. After three seasons, the show will finally do so, and now, there is an answer to which character will appear in the spinoff show.
Sadly, only one character will appear in the prequel series. This gives an opportunity for the audience to see a character’s life much earlier in the outbreak and meet other people in their lives. So what do we know about the crossover so far?
Here are seven things we know, including which character is going to be in Fear the Walking Dead.
Lennie James’ Morgan has been a character on The Walking Dead almost since the beginning and introduced Rick Grimes to this new world. So it kind of makes sense that he will be the character to bring the original show and the spinoff together.
According to Deadline, James is going to start filming in Austin, Texas for Fear the Walking Dead. Fans shouldn’t worry about seeing less of Morgan on the original show. “Even though Morgan is going to be featured on Fear, he has a lot of story left on The Walking Dead,” said showrunner Scott M. Gimple in a statement. “Morgan’s arch on The Walking Dead Season 8 positioned him for the story on Fear.”
The showrunner also said, “It was also important to see Fear‘s world and characters through new yet familiar eyes.” This is the official crossover casting for the television event. But fans have also guessed that another familiar character will appear.
