Durring New York Comic-Con TWD panel, it was revealed there is a crossover between The Walking Dead and spinoff Fear The Walking Dead coming. The two AMC shows are based on the comics created by Robert Kirkman.
Kirkman told the crowd:
The TWD panel included cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Tom Payne, Katelyn Nacon, Austin Amelio and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays arch villain Negan. EPs Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and David Alpert joined them. Season 8 of the AMC blockbuster is 16 episodes long, with that SUPER annoying break in the middle.
Ina press conference before the panel, executive producer Nicotero said of the new season:
“The first episode has a lot of nods to previous seasons. We’re setting the stage for our war.”
FearTWD ends its third season on October 15. TWD’s Season 8 debuts on October 22. Until then here is a look at the first episode – which is also the show’s 100th episode:
