AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and its spin-off “Fear the Walking Dead” are set to come together in a key way next year.
Creator Robert Kirkman, appearing at New York Comic-Con on Saturday, revealed that a character from one show will crossover to the other series.
Which character going to which show though is unclear and Kirkman says don’t expect any further information for a few months yet. As ‘Fear’ serves as a prequel, how much of a time difference there is between the series isn’t clear.
“Fear” launched in 2015 as a prequel to “Walking Dead.” The “Fear” storyline follows two families at the outset of the zombie apocalypse. “Walking Dead,” which bowed in 2010, follows the struggles of survivors trying not to become “walkers” long after the country has been overrun by the undead.
“Fear the Walking Dead” wraps its third season on October 15th, while “The Walking Dead” begins its eighth season on October 22nd.
