'The Walking Dead,' 'Fear the Walking Dead' plan character crossover next year

Kill happy It's clear the show's tendency to kill off major characters on a regular basis will continue

"There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name, to another show, that I will not name", said Kirkman during the panel.

The guys were joined by fellow co-stars Lennie James and Melissa McBride as they shared some details on the upcoming eighth season of the hit show.

Robert went on to confirm that there would be a crossover between The Walking Dead and spin-off series Fear The Walking Dead.

At San Diego Comic-Con this year, Kirkman confirmed that the Fear the Walking Dead timeline takes place during Season 1 and Season 2 of The Walking Dead.

Fans of "The Walking Dead" and its prequel, "Fear the Walking Dead", have long speculated that the two AMC shows could cross over, and now the man who wrote the original comics has thrown those zombie enthusiasts a bone.

NY Prosecutors Investigated Ivanka, Trump Jr. For Potential Fraud
Kasowitz stated "I have never made a contribution to anyone's campaign, including Cy Vance's, as a "quid-pro-quo" for anything". Ivanka Trump listens to the press conference held by President Donald Trump and Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House .

As fans will remember, sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was seen looking for gas in episode one of season one. But if the plan is to give Fear the Walking Dead a little ratings boost, it probably makes the most sense to transplant one of the more-popular second-tier characters (possibly Tara or Rosita) from the main show over to Fear, in hopes that more Walking Dead fans will then get interested.

"We want these shows to have their own legs and have their own stories and be their own".

As of now, it hasn't been said which character would be visiting which show. He's a tranformative character who introduced Rick and company to "a larger world" of interconnected communities in The Walking Dead.

"Fear the Walking Dead" is now airing the second half of season three on Sunday night with "The Walking Dead" season 8 set to debut on October 22. It's worth pointing out that both shows are now at completely different points in the timeline.

Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT and is a production of Square Head Pictures created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson.
