Robert Kirkman announced an upcoming Walking Dead/Fear the Walking Dead crossover at New York Comic Con this weekend.
Many fans have speculated about a potential crossover (and some of the logistical problems since Fear the Walking Dead is set a few years earlier than the original) ever since the spin-off debuted, but nothing had been confirmed until now.
As far as details go, Kirkman was not too forthcoming, saying only that “I get that question all the time. I think that we’ve finally gotten to a place with Fear the Walking Dead where it has its own identity…there are two Walking Dead shows, I’m not going to name them, but there are two…There is one character that is going to go from one show that will go from one show and appear in the other show, that I will not name.”
Who the character will be, or the show they will appear on, is anyone’s guess, but since Fear the Walking Dead’s ratings have declined since the first season, bet on Fear the Walking Dead getting the “special guest star”. If this occurs, hopefully the addition of a Walking Dead character won’t alter the very different tone of Fear the Walking Dead, which takes a more realistic approach to the zombie apocalypse.
