'The Walking Dead' will finally cross over with 'Fear,' Robert Kirkman confirms

Wallace Pearson | 09 October, 2017, 00:41

Speaking at Comic-Con in NY, the writer revealed that a character from either The Walking Dead or Fear the Walking Dead would appear in the other's show, although refused to confirm who. The upcoming premiere will be the 100th episode of the popular show.

Or it could simply become an advert for Fear The Walking Dead by bringing in one of their characters into the mainline show, which might be the most cynical option.

Just recently, The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd stated that she didn't think a Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead crossover would happen. In a bombshell tease dropped at New York Comic Con on Saturday, comic book creator (and EP for both shows) Robert Kirkman said during The Walking Dead panel that the two programs will finally link up.

As fans will remember, sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was seen looking for gas in episode one of season one.

The audience cheered as Kirkman continued to divulge more cryptic clues about the crossover.

For now let the guessing games begin as we wait to find out which character will be moving between "The Walking Dead" and "Fear the Walking Dead".

There are obviously some things that will need to be worked out if the crossover is as great as it can be - mostly notably, you have to figure out a way in which a story can be told that will make sense for both shows.

The crossover gained even more traction when a tweet appeared on "The Walking Dead" page with an image of the two shows' logos and the words "The worlds collide". Fans may love to see fiery Clementine replace the lackluster Edith as Carl's new girlfriend, but Kirkman has reaffirmed that it just won't be happening. 'Hopefully there have been points where you go, "Is this it? What could happen? Is it going to be something completely different than that?" Kirkman didn't say if it would occur in the upcoming eighth season of The Walking Dead, which premieres on October 22 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
