Prior to AMC’s crossover event, Morgan Jones and Madison Clark are two names you weren’t likely to find in the same sentence. And yet here we are.
Later tonight, the Powers That Be will bring together the worlds of The Walking Dead and its sister series, Fear The Walking Dead, in spectacular fashion. Morgan Jones, a long-time veteran of the zombie drama, is bound for Texas, where he’ll forge an uneasy alliance with Madison Clark, but it seems as if Lennie James’ TWD stalwart won’t be the only one to make the jump between shows.
As has long been suspected, he’ll only be the first to crossover, with AMC confirming tonight that more Walking Dead characters will appear on Fear at some point in the future. Further details on who else may join Jones and when we can expect to see him get some familiar company haven’t been made available, but the guessing game has already begun amongst fans.
Unfortunately, it’ll likely be some time before we learn about anymore crossovers, as AMC no doubt wants to keep the focus firmly on Morgan Jones at the moment, but change is clearly afoot for Fear the Walking Dead and creator Robert Kirkman has already warned viewers that season 4 will “shake things up” in a major way:
“There’s going to be a lot of really great stuff for Lennie James to do,” he said. “Lennie James’ presence with that established cast in Fear the Walking Dead is going to change everything for them, and give them so much more new stuff to play off of, and really change the story in an interesting way that I feel like is going to kick start that show, and really get the engines roaring on that one.
I don’t want to spoil anything story-wise, but we are changing things a great deal. It’s going to be a much different show that is not going to alienate any viewers that have been enjoying the show from season 1 to 3, but will give those people new things to love, and new characters to latch onto. It’s really going to shake things up.”
Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead, which has arguably generated more excitement than the last three seasons combined, is expected to hit the airwaves later tonight (April 15th) – just after The Walking Dead reaches its yearly finale with the super-sized “Wrath.”
