‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Plan Character Crossover Next Year

The worlds of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” will collide at some point next year.

A character from one show will crossover to the other series — that’s what “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman told fans Saturday night at the “Walking Dead” panel held at the Theater at Madison Square Garden as part of New York Comic-Con.

“Fear” launched in 2015 as a prequel to “Walking Dead.” The “Fear” storyline follows two families at the outset of the zombie apocalypse. “Walking Dead,” which bowed in 2010, follows the struggles of  survivors trying not to become “walkers” long after the country has been overrun by the undead.

Kirkman would not offer any other details other to say that one character will hop shows next year.

“More news coming in the following months,” Kirkman said after teasing the plan for the “one character that I will not name.”

“Walking Dead” is set to begin its eighth season on Oct. 22. “Fear the Walking Dead” will wrap its third season on Oct. 15. The buzz about the convergence of worlds could help boost fan interest in Season 4 of “Fear,” which has seen a big drop in viewership since its first season.
