How does Morgan Jones make it all the way from The Walking Dead to Fear the Walking Dead? The Zen Master certainly found himself on a massive journey, both physically and mentally. Ever since we learned about it, fans have been waiting for the day that would see AMC’s zombie spinoff finally crossover with its flagship series. That day has finally come.

Fans have long theorized about how such an event could take place. One of the most popular theories suggested that Madison Clark, Fear The Walking Dead‘s protagonist, would become the Whisperer leader Alpha. The theory presumed that Madison and her children would travel to Virginia, finding themselves on The Walking Dead as the catalyst for the Whisperer War. Another theory assumed that Abraham Ford would be the likely link between the two shows. But ultimately, it’s Morgan who has created a bridge between the two shows.

Morgan’s struggle with mental illness has been a focus of several episodes throughout the series. Much like Carol when she fled Alexandria in Season 6, Morgan left the group to come to grips with his trauma. He spent some time living in Jadis’ vacated garbage dump, but after constant visits from his friends entreating him to come back home, he was driven to put more distance between himself and the others. Morgan set out walking (and then running), and didn’t stop until he came across a lonely man (John Dorie) and a pushy journalist (Althea) in the middle of nowhere on Fear The Walking Dead.

This ragtag group then comes across a woman who has fallen to the ground, apparently injured, but when they stop to help her it turns out that this woman is actually Alicia Clark – and she’s tricked them into walking right into an ambush! Luciana, Nick and Strand are also present, and the episode ends with Alicia holding a knife to Althea’s throat. It looks like Fear the Walking Dead has made a big time skip to catch up with The Walking Dead, and a lot has happened during that time. Expect plenty of flashbacks this season to explain exactly what Alicia the others’ “story” is.

Lennie James and Frank Dillane in Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 How Morgan Ends Up in Fear The Walking Dead

In the comic books, Morgan is long dead, having fallen victim to a walker bite when the herd breached the gates of Alexandria. In the context of the show, this would have taken place back in season 6, so Morgan’s survival made him a bit of wild card. One of Rick’s group members did in fact disappear after the brutality of All Out War. After dating and losing both Morgan and King Ezekiel, Michonne took off and found herself leading the life of a pirate with the members of Oceanside, but eventually returned to Alexandria to aid in the fight against the Whisperers. Morgan has seemingly stepped up to fill in for Michonne’s comic book role, which could put a twist on the Whisperer theory, as Madison’s group could show up just in time to save the day – rather than being the villains themselves.

For years, fans suspected a crossover between The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead was basically inevitable. And for years, those directly involved with the two series constantly shut down any hopes viewers had about the two worlds potentially colliding. In 2015, Robert Kirkman proclaimed the idea of a crossover illogical. Just last year, Fear The Walking Dead star Daniel Sharman (Troy Otto) called a crossover a “bad idea.” Let’s hope that he was wrong, and Morgan’s journey from the original show to its spinoff serves to make both shows more interesting.

Prior to AMC’s crossover event, Morgan Jones and Madison Clark are two names you weren’t likely to find in the same sentence. And yet here we are.

Later tonight, the Powers That Be will bring together the worlds of The Walking Dead and its sister series, Fear The Walking Dead, in spectacular fashion. Morgan Jones, a long-time veteran of the zombie drama, is bound for Texas, where he’ll forge an uneasy alliance with Madison Clark, but it seems as if Lennie James’ TWD stalwart won’t be the only one to make the jump between shows.

As has long been suspected, he’ll only be the first to crossover, with AMC confirming tonight that more Walking Dead characters will appear on Fear at some point in the future. Further details on who else may join Jones and when we can expect to see him get some familiar company haven’t been made available, but the guessing game has already begun amongst fans.

Unfortunately, it’ll likely be some time before we learn about anymore crossovers, as AMC no doubt wants to keep the focus firmly on Morgan Jones at the moment, but change is clearly afoot for Fear the Walking Dead and creator Robert Kirkman has already warned viewers that season 4 will “shake things up” in a major way:

“There’s going to be a lot of really great stuff for Lennie James to do,” he said. “Lennie James’ presence with that established cast in Fear the Walking Dead is going to change everything for them, and give them so much more new stuff to play off of, and really change the story in an interesting way that I feel like is going to kick start that show, and really get the engines roaring on that one.

I don’t want to spoil anything story-wise, but we are changing things a great deal. It’s going to be a much different show that is not going to alienate any viewers that have been enjoying the show from season 1 to 3, but will give those people new things to love, and new characters to latch onto. It’s really going to shake things up.”

Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead, which has arguably generated more excitement than the last three seasons combined, is expected to hit the airwaves later tonight (April 15th) – just after The Walking Dead reaches its yearly finale with the super-sized “Wrath.”

Bringing Morgan Jones over to Fear The Walking Dead was not only a carefully orchestrated collaboration, but it was also Lennie James’ decision to leave The Walking Dead behind for pastures anew.

The actor admitted that the historic crossover can be traced back to a conversation he had with Scott Gimple, executive producer and former showrunner of The Walking Dead who has since been tasked with overseeing the entire AMC franchise.

And though James is now getting ready to make the jump over to Fear, it seems as if we shouldn’t rule out a return to the hit series for him at some point in the future. Speaking to Hollywood Life ahead of tonight’s big double-header, the actor was asked if Morgan will one day be back on The Walking Dead, and here’s what he had to say:

“Somebody asked Andy [Lincoln] this question, so I am gonna go with his answer because it seems to be a safe answer because it’s already kind of out there. As Andy says, I don’t think the story between, about the relationship between Rick and Morgan, is over yet.”

Though far from firm confirmation that we’ll see James’ character return, we imagine that if there really was no chance for him to show up on The Walking Dead again, he would’ve just come out and said that. As such, the fact that both him and Lincoln have played coy on the topic leads us to believe that perhaps there’s something in the works.

Chalk that up as speculation for now, though, as AMC hasn’t commented on the matter just yet, and likely won’t for some time. At the moment, the focus is clearly being kept on the big night ahead of us tonight, when the two zombie dramas will collide in spectacular fashion, as The Walking Dead season 8 reaches its conclusion and Fear The Walking Dead season 4 begins, paving the way for a seamless transition between one show and the next.

Morgan (Lennie James) is leaving The Walking Dead to join Fear the Walking Dead but he might not be gone from the series forever. The upcoming season 8 finale of The Walking Dead will be Lennie James’ last episode as a series regular for the foreseeable future. However the war against the Saviors shakes out, when viewers see Morgan next it will be on Fear the Walking Dead. (The season 4 premiere of Fear the Walking Dead will air immediately after the season 8 finale of The Walking Dead.)

To fit Morgan into Fear the Walking Dead and directly continue his story, the spinoff will be instituting a time jump. This is a big departure as Fear the Walking Dead has always been a prequel. This change will make the “crossover” more seamless. It also sets up that, although Morgan won’t be a regular presence on Walking Dead, he can still conceivably reappear on that series. Which is a good thing too as the story of Morgan isn’t quite over on The Walking Dead.

Hollywood Life spoke to Lennie James about his new job on Fear. As expected the actor was very tight-lipped about how and why Morgan ends up in Austin, Texas on Fear the Walking Dead. At the same time, James did tease that Morgan’s Walking Dead journey won’t be entirely wrapped with the finale. When pressed if he could ever return to The Walking Dead, James explained:

Somebody asked Andy [Lincoln] this question, so I am gonna go with his answer because it seems to be a safe answer because it’s already kind of out there. As Andy says, I don’t think the story between, about the relationship between Rick and Morgan, is over yet.

James’ comments aren’t a confirmation that Morgan will be back on The Walking Dead, even for just a guest appearance. Yet they’re pretty close. The fact that the two actors are holding to the same line suggests there’s something in the works. Clearly, Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick, and James have discussed their characters together. At the very least, they’re not ready to let things go.

Whatever happens between Rick and Morgan, if anything, in the season 8 finale won’t bring their story to a close. In fact, it’s very probable that the season 8 finale will barely touch on Morgan and Rick. The last scene of the two characters together will probably be from the episode “Still Gotta Mean Something” where they causally murdered a group of Saviors.

For Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead to continue and for there to be no resolution for Rick and Morgan’s interesting relationship would be highly disappointing. Although getting Rick and Morgan back together might be as complicated as whatever mysterious method will be used to bring Morgan to Fear the Walking Dead. The Walking Dead and its spinoff might take place in the same time now, however, they’re still set halfway across the country from one another.

Things should be clearer when the exact circumstances of the crossover are settled. However, some speculation could still be made. The Walking Dead season 8 introduced a new character, Georgie, who seemed to want to connect communities across the world. Perhaps it will be through Georgie that Morgan finds the community of Madison Clarke and her family. It could also be through Georgie that Rick (and other characters from The Walking Dead) reunite with Morgan. For now though, things are a mystery.

There’s one thing that Lennie James is pretty confident won’t happen with the crossover. James’ move doesn’t signal Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead being gathered together in one big show. James admits that such a move is “possible” but it’s not very “probable.” James has no insider information as an actor. It’s just his gut feeling though is that the world of The Walking Dead is going to get a lot bigger, not smaller, with his move to Fear.

The Walking Dead season 8 concludes Sunday, April 15 with “Wrath” at 9pm on AMC. Fear the Walking Dead season 4 begins with “What’s Your Story?” at 10:10pm.

April 15th, 2018 will be a day long remembered by fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

For starters, it’ll signal the explosive finale of the show’s eighth season, while also marking the long-anticipated return of its sister series, Fear The Walking Dead, which is now on the verge of season 4. And it’s shaping up to be a doozy, no thanks to the impending arrival of one Morgan Jones.

But before we get swept up in talk of synergy and exciting crossovers, it’s important to note that AMC have officially deemed April 15th to be Survival Sunday, when The Walking Dead season 8 finale and the Fear the Walking Dead season 4 premiere will be airing back-to-back (not to mention screening in theaters, too). So again, it’s going to be one heck of a night for fans and now, to hype it up even more, the network’s released the above promo, teasing us with what’s about to go down.

As for Morgan’s big crossover, AMC’s official synopsis reveals it as unfolding as so:

We will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes — the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), joining the story from the world of The Walking Dead. The characters’ immediate past mixes with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes, and threats. They fight for each other, against each other, and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; the heroic, mercenary, and craven all crashing together towards a new reality

True to the old saying of one door closing just as another begins to open, The Walking Dead season 8 will end on the same day that Fear The Walking Dead season 4 begins: April 15th. It’ll forever be known as Survival Sunday, and we can hardly wait to tune in.

Bringing Morgan Jones over to Fear The Walking Dead was not only a carefully orchestrated collaboration, it was also Lennie James’ decision to leave The Walking Dead behind for pastures anew.

Via Digital Spy, James admitted that the historic crossover can be traced back to a conversation he had with Scott Gimple, executive producer and former showrunner of The Walking Dead who has since been tasked with overseeing the entire AMC franchise.

And though his on-screen survivor has been a Walking Dead mainstay ever since 2010, Lennie James stressed that next week’s crossover had his full blessing from the off. But first, the actor recounts how Morgan’s leap of faith came to be:

At the beginning of every season you have to sit down with Scott Gimple and he tells you what the arc of this season is going to be and what your character’s arc is going to be. You mostly don’t listen to anything he’s saying because you just want to know whether or not you’re going to die.

A couple of days later he phoned me up, said he forgot to talk to me about something and would I come back. So, I drove back to his house thinking he forgot to tell me that I’m dying. I got there, I sat down, I got a bottled water and he said, ‘By the way, this is not a conversation about you dying.’

Indeed, James was initially taken aback by the proposal; however, the opportunity to develop and expand Morgan’s story in Fear The Walking Dead season 4 was too good an opportunity to pass up.

My first reaction was, ‘Oh thank God,’ but then he said it was much weirder than that. He talked about his new role of overseeing both shows and then he said, ‘How would you like to continue the story of Morgan in Fear the Walking Dead?’

At the end of the conversation, Scott said that he was sure I had loads of questions and, to be honest, I probably did but I couldn’t bring a single one of them to my lips. He asked what I wanted to do and all I was that said I was just going to leave and get back to him.

In the end, Lennie James jumped at the chance to cross over into Fear The Walking Dead, and reminded viewers that there was “absolutely a choice” during those aforementioned deliberations.

We just started talking about it over the next couple of weeks and months as there was a lot to take on board. It wasn’t a case of, ‘This is going to happen,’ it was genuinely a case of what I thought about it, there was absolutely a choice.

Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead, which has arguably generated more excitement than the last three seasons combined, is expected to hit the airwaves on April 15th – just after The Walking Dead reaches its yearly finale with the super-sized “Wrath.”

Fear the Walking Dead producer Andrew Chambliss says that season 4 is accessible for viewers checking out the show for the first time. Set two years after the events of the season 3 finale, “Sleigh Ride”, season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead gets a bit of a reset plot-wise, leaping forward and bringing in some serious talent to play a slew of new major characters. The new season also marks the first crossover event of the series, as the time-jump allows longtime Walking Dead regular Lennie James to appear as Morgan Jones.

Most of the Proctors, but not necessarily including leader Proctor John (Ray McKinnon), are dead as a result of the Gonzalez Dam explosion at the end of season 3. Madison (Kim Dickens) looks poised to take over the Proctors’ trading post “El Bazar” as the show’s continued driving force. She was the only character whose fate was clearly known until the first previews for season 4. That may concern longtime fans of Fear the Walking Dead, but Chambliss says it’s a positive thing for newcomers – and that the new season still retains enough familiarity to make it accessible for anyone.

As reported by Cinema Blend on Saturday, Chambliss spoke about the new season of Fear The Walking Dead at Wondercon in Anaheim. With the new batch of episodes starting fresh as it jumps ahead in time and introduces a host of new characters – including cast additions Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman, and Maggie Grace – Chambliss sees it as a good opportunity for the uninitiated to give the show their first viewing. But as he pointed out, there’s still plenty of room for Walking Dead devotees as well.

“Really I think anyone, whether you’re a fan of Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead or someone who’s completely new to the universe, can really kind of step in and we’ve got so many new faces and so many familiar faces that there’s a different point of view kind of represented in the episode, so it’s very easy for someone to kind of latch onto a particular point of view and just kind of experience this season. So I’d say anyone who has any interest can, they can jump aboard. I don’t think it’s hard to kind of find their footing in the storytelling.”

James’ crossover appearance as Morgan Jones helps balance out the new faces joining returning stars Dickens, Alycia Debnam-Carey, and Frank Dillane, among others. As expected, he’s been a major piece of the promotion of season 4, appearing in recently released key art, the full trailer, and the teaser. The 30-second preview also showed the return of Luciana Galvez (Danay Garcia) after being missing from the main plot for most of the third season, as well as a quick glimpse at a heavily armed Victor Strand (Colman Domingo).

With the Proctors almost entirely wiped out and Madison appearing to describe El Bazar as “home”, Fear the Walking Dead regulars are getting about as fresh of a start as the brand new characters. The brief look at Dillahunt’s new character certainly makes him look dangerous to walkers, but he could be to his fellow survivors as well. And Elfman and Grace’s additions to the cast also serve to inject the apocalyptic proceedings with added freshness.

Proctor John spoke of ambitions to expand in the penultimate season 3 episode, “Things Bad Begun”, before the mayhem of “Sleigh Ride”. The wheelchair-bound John was already slowed by a spinal tumor causing paralysis in his legs. With the people already confirmed to be back and the infusion of new characters, he still has a chance to find new territory – but there’s no telling what kind of shape he’s in two years later. Either way, the combination of established characters and fresh blood represents a chance to reinvigorate Fear the Walking Dead for both new and returning viewers.

Walkers in winter?

It’s not as crazy as it sounds, as The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero recently weighed in with his thoughts on a potential spinoff series which forces its lead characters to battle the elements and biting temperatures, all the while contending with the dead.

Coated in a thick blanket of snow, this icy offshoot would nudge The Walking Dead toward uncharted territory, and we know frozen zombies have already featured in the likes of Resident Evil: Retribution and the Dead Snow series.

Here’s Greg Nicotero making his case for a cold-weather spinoff:

The one thing that the comic book does great [is] when they introduce the cold weather and the winter. I had even written some webisodes that took place with a frozen zombie herd. And I think that our hopes are — my hopes — would be that we would get into an entirely different location, like a cold weather scenario. Because frozen zombies are f–ing awesome. Until they thaw out and then you’re screwed. Because they would freeze and thaw out, and they would be fine.

As for why AMC is yet to dabble in a frozen zombie series, we imagine it comes down to logistics. Capturing The Walking Dead (and Fear!) is difficult enough as it is before you toss in sub-zero temperatures and hazardous conditions. Even still, it would certainly give TWD the boost it so desperately needs – ditto for a potential movie to overseas territory.

Nicotero continued:

We’ve done a good job of allowing our audience to populate the US and I think there’s a lot more opportunities outside of the US for a zombie show.

Back in the realm of reality, The Walking Dead season 8 is fast approaching its blockbuster finale, which is expected to leave the door open for the fourth season of Fear The Walking Dead – and Morgan Jones, in particular – when all is said and done.

Fans of The Walking Dead thought they’d stumbled onto a major spoiler when set photos from Fear the Walking Dead season 4 showed Melissa McBride – who plays Carol over on TWD – on location. It wouldn’t be ridiculous to suggest that Carol could crossover from one show to the other, seeing as Lennie James’ Morgan Jones is doing just that next season. But is that really what’s going on here?

While catching up with, McBride revealed that, no, she was not on the set of Fear because she was guest starring on the spinoff show. She was actually there to work with one of the series’ directors, in the hopes of picking up some directorial tips.

“I was out there shadowing Michael Satrazemis who’s directing one of the episodes. I went out there for about three weeks to shadow him while he directed.”

While Carol won’t be appearing on Fear anytime soon, McBride may have revealed another interesting nugget of news instead. Going by her comments, it seems likely that she’s gearing up to direct an episode of either The Walking Dead or Fear in the future. If we’ve got it right, McBride would be the first TWD cast member to helm an episode of the show.

The actress then went on to talk about how, seeing as she won’t follow him onto Fear, after all, she’ll miss spending time with her co-star Lennie James on The Walking Dead. The pair have, in particular, worked closely together over the past couple of seasons of the show, so it must be tough to say goodbye. Though that’s something the TWD cast have had to get used to over the years.

“I just love Lennie and I love his face. I love his eyes are so soulful and it’s always a remarkable thing to work with him. So present, always so present as Morgan.”

Carol might not be appearing on the spinoff, but fans excited for the crossover between the two shows still have much to look forward to when Fear the Walking Dead season 4 arrives on AMC in just a few weeks (April 15th).

There’s a geek-friendly crossover looming on the horizon. And we’re not referring to Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.

Instead, we direct your attention towards the small screen (and AMC, in particular) in anticipation of Fear The Walking Dead season 4, which is about to welcome Morgan Jones into its midst for the very first time. In fact, this is the first instance of a character from The Walking Dead crossing over to the West Coast, where Madison Clark and her family were last seen having a close brush with death.

Don’t worry, they all survived that dam explosion, as evidenced by this newly-released promo for Fear The Walking Dead, which is once again told through the eyes of Lennie James’ hardened survivor, who’s currently losing his tentative grip on reality over on AMC’s core Walking Dead saga.

A trip to Texas is on the cards, then, and incoming showrunner Andrew Chambliss believes season 4 will dial things up to 11:

This season is all about a journey from isolation to community and it’s about people in a bleak and dark world looking for a shred of hope to keep fighting.

For Lennie James, Morgan’s crossover is an opportunity to deep dive into one of The Walking Dead‘s longest servants, and it’s a testimony to the character’s depth and likeability that Morgan has been selected as the one to make the jump.

Morgan is a man of extremes. If you’re going to kill, you might as well kill everybody. If you’re not going to kill, you shouldn’t kill anybody.

“In this world, you’ll be torn apart by teeth…or bullets.” On April 15th, AMC’s two-pronged zombie drama will collide in spectacular fashion as The Walking Dead season 8 reaches its conclusion. It’ll end just as Fear The Walking Dead season 4 begins, paving the way for a seamless transition between one show in the next. And if you happen to be located in North America, you have the chance to see that epic TV crossover play out on the big screen as part of AMC’s Survival Sunday.
