The Walking Dead’s Morgan is crossing over to Fear The Walking Dead

November 28th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It looks like AMC’s The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead are about to cross paths in an unexpected way… through Morgan.

It’s been confirmed that the much talked about crossover IS happening and will revolve around Lennie James’ Morgan (above) who has already started reading with the show’s cast (below).

While nothing official has been said about how Morgan will fit in the world of Fear The Walking Dead which serves as a prequel to The Walking Dead, it’s expected that one of two things will happen: Either the show will take a leap forward, catching up with the main show’s timeline.


The series will find Morgan during his hiatus in the main show. You may remember that Rick met Morgan early on in his travels before leaving him behind for a few seasons… could Fear tell the story of how Morgan became the now very different man he is now?

Executive producer Scott M Gimple said of the crossover: “Lennie James’ brilliance and humanity in his portrayal of Morgan Jones has been part of the DNA of what makes The Walking Dead so fantastic since the very beginning; Morgan’s story will continue in this season of The Walking Dead, and then, it begins again in the upcoming season of Fear the Walking Dead, pushing the series — and the Waking Dead universe itself — into new directions and possibilities.”

Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, showrunners and executive producers for Fear the Walking Dead said: “As longtime fans of Lennie James and his portrayal of Morgan Jones, we are thrilled to have him join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead. We look forward to working with Lennie to continue the journey Morgan began on The Walking Dead.”

James himself said: “To take Morgan into this new realm and landscape, to see who he could now be, to see where his story could go in the world of Fear the Walking Dead is wonderfully exciting and I am really looking forward to the challenge. “My time on The Walking Dead has been a blessing and one of the top working and personal experiences of my life. That cast and crew will have my love, my respect and my deep gratitude until the end of my days.”

I can’t lie, I’ve never watched Fear The Walking Dead, but it looks like I’m going to have to start…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
