The worlds of The Walking Dead and spinoff Fear The Walking Dead are finally going to cross paths. Right at the beginning of today’s New York Comic-Con TWD panel it was revealed that there is going to be a crossover between the two AMC shows based on the comics created by Robert Kirkman.
“There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name, to another show, that I will not name,” Kirkman told the crowd of what has been a question fans have asked since prequel of sorts FearTWD debuted in the summer of 2015. “This is a huge event in the world of The Walking Dead,” he added of the crossover expected to occur in the next year.
Kirkman was scarce in terms of details, saying, “We’ve finally gotten to a place [with Fear the Walking Dead] where we can play with some things,” but a source confirms to EW that the shows will converge at some point next year. The prospect of a crossover is tantalizing, especially considering Kirkman’s comments at San Diego Comic Con in July when he pointed out that “Fear the Walking Dead takes place roughly around the time of season 1 and beginning of season 2 in The Walking Dead. Walking Dead season 8 is taking place with the theoretical Fear the Walking Dead season 7.… Right now the timelines are so different that it’s impossible.”
