As announced by AMC’s Twitter accounts, the “character reveal” will come on November 26 at 10 pm ET during Talking Dead. Of course, the actual reveal may be held until later in the episode which airs until 11 pm ET. As announced at New York Comic Con, one character from either The Walking Dead or Fear the Walking Dead will appear on the other series. Robert Kirkman promises the event will take place in either Season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead or Season 9 of The Walking Dead.
With the announcement coming on the heels of the cast and crew of Fear the Walking Deadheading to Austin, Texas in preparation for production of the show’s fourth season, the safe bet is that the crossover will take place on Fear the Walking Dead. As noted by Victor Strand actor Colman Domingo, fans of the AMC shows are going to spot actors on set which often reveals spoilers — meaning the reveal is just in time for an official announcement to take place ahead fans’ set photos revealing the news.
Following the announcement, speculation pointed to Michael Cudlitz reprising his Houston, Texas-based Abraham Ford character on Fear the Walking Dead. While Cudlitz says the idea is “awesome,”executive producer Greg Nicotero debunked the theory on an episode of ComicBook.com’s After the Dead.
Sunday’s Episode 8×06 of The Walking Dead is titled, “The King, The Widow, and Rick.” The officially synopsis for The King, The Widow, and Rick reads, “With things looking up for Rick and our group, an argument breaks out at the Hilltop. The consequences of the decision are life versus death.”
Fear the Walking Dead returns for its fourth season in 2018. The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on AMC. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
