On Talking Dead, James said he was "surprised" that he's the one crossing over, and called the show "Fear of the Walking Dead" three times, so he's still getting his sea legs. Her arc of the season 8 set for the story of Fear.
The character who will finally bridge the worlds of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead was revealed during Talking Dead following Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead, "The King, the Widow, and Rick".
Back in October when AMC revealed that one of the character will crossover to another Robert Kirkman-based series, fans were taken aback.
The last two weeks have seen the frantic acts of war between the survivors of Alexandria, The Hilltop, and The Kingdom and The Saviors slow down a bit heading into the sixth episode from season 8 of The Walking Dead.
Or there could be a Fear fast-forward that puts the events of that show concurrent with those now on TWD, with Morgan moving on from Alexandria at the end of season 8 and then encountering whoever is still alive on the spin-off.
Scott M Gimple said in a statement: "Even though Morgan is going to be featured on Fear, he has a lot of story left on The Walking Dead". "It was also very important to see the characters and the history of Fear through a new perspective that is at the same time familiar".
But this doesn't mean he will be axed on AMC's The Walking Dead. Maybe we'll even meet some of Madison's extended family as they run into Morgan.
"From the very first moment that the whole suggestion of Morgan, my character, going over to Fear The Walking Dead - the hardest part of it from beginning until now has been leaving The Walking Dead", James said, joining Talking Dead via satellite from Austin, Texas. On the original Walking Dead, most of Morgan's time off-screen has already been accounted for through flashbacks.
