"More news coming in the following months", Kirkman said after teasing the plan for the "one character that I will not name".
The two shows take place on opposite coasts with different characters at separate points in time, but that will not stop The Walking Dead and companion show Fear the Walking Dead from a future crossover.
Also, if the show does what we're suggesting clearly The Walking Dead fans won't see their show impacted at all - this is just a way to get more fans of the original show watching the spin-off/companion/whatever you want to call it. Lesser characters may not have quite the same effect, but it's still an exciting prospect to know the groups of survivors in each show have the chance to bump into one another down the line.
"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. "We've finally gotten to a place [with Fear the Walking Dead] where we can play with some things".
"When "Fear the Walking Dead" viewers were reminded early in Season 3 that Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) is from Alabama, a lot of fans were quick to speculate that the she might be a relative of The Walking Dead's" Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). That means we could see a younger version of a character like Jesus or even cross paths with a long-deceased Walking Dead character! 'Hopefully there have been points where you go, "Is this it?" It's worth pointing out that both shows are now at completely different points in the timeline.
