James will star in Fear the Walking Dead as a series regular along with returning cast members Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo and Danay Garcia, and new cast members Garret Dillahunt and Jenna Elfman.

Executive producer Scott M. Gimple said of the crossover:

  • “Lennie James’ brilliance and humanity in his portrayal of Morgan Jones has been part of the DNA of what makes ‘The Walking Dead’ so fantastic since the very beginning. Morgan’s story will continue in this season of ‘The Walking Dead,’ and then, it begins again in the upcoming season of ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ pushing the series — and the ‘Waking Dead’ universe itself — into new directions and possibilities.”

James said of his appearance:

“To take Morgan into this new realm and landscape, to see who he could now be, to see where his story could go in the world of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ is wonderfully exciting and I am really looking forward to the challenge. My time on ‘The Walking Dead’ has been a blessing and one of the top working and personal experiences of my life. That cast and crew will have my love, my respect and my deep gratitude until the end of my days.”

Produced by AMC Studios, The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead are the No. 1 and No. 4 dramas on cable, respectively, among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 in Nielson live+3. Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero.
