Despite the Fear the Walking Dead showrunners adamantly saying the show would not cross over with The Walking Dead at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, Robert Kirkman has teased the possibility of the two series crossing over!
“I’ll say this: There are two Walking Dead shows. There is one character that I will not name that will appear in the other show that I will not name. More news coming in the following months,” Kirkman said at the New York Comic Con panel for The Walking Dead. UPDATE: The Walking Dead’s official Twitter just tweeted an image teasing the crossover. Check it out below!
Along with Kirkman, executive producers David Alpert, Gale Ann Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and series stars Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Austin Amelio, Katelyn Nacon, Tom Payne, and Norman Reedus sat in to discuss the eighth season, which centers on the All Out War storyline between Alexandria, The Hilltop, The Kingdom, and The Saviors.
“You’re all going to see something amazing,” Nicotero said on the season eight premiere. “There will be a shot-for-shot scene recreation of an old scene in the premiere. Eagle-eyed viewers will know what it is,” he added. The cast then took turns discussing their characters’ mental and emotional states this season, with Andrew Lincoln assuring that Rick will indeed “get his groove back.” Before the panel concluded, the question of The Walking Dead’s future was once again brought up, Kirkman cryptically answering, “I know what we’re building to…”
The Walking Dead season 8 premieres October 22nd at 9PM.
