Following tonight's episode of The Walking Dead, the new episode of Talking Dead tonight revealed the official Walking Dead crossover character will be Morgan Jones, played by Lennie James. Timeline-wise, Morgan makes sense, as there is a multiple season gap between his appearances on The Walking Dead which could absolutely be filled in storylines that would crossover into the Fear TWD timeline.

Fan have immediately expressed concern that Morgan may have limited time left on The Walking Dead, in which showrunner Scott Gimple followed the announcement that the character still "has a lot of story left on The Walking Dead" and that "Morgan's arc on The Walking Dead season 8 positioned him for the story on Fear."

The crossover was first announced at New York Comic Con when Robert Kirkman said that one character would cross over, but it wasn't clear if the crossover would happen on The Walking Dead or Fear TWD. A recently deleted tweet confirmed that this character would be joining the Fear TWD Season 4 cast.

As soon as the Fear TWD crossover was announced, many had speculated that it was in fact Abraham Ford right away, since his involvement makes sense on many levels. First, Michael Cudlitz himself sent out a cryptic tweet shortly after the crossover announcement was made at New York Comic Con, which many took to be a hint towards his involvement. It also makes sense since the character has been killed on the flagship series, and there will be no scheduling conflicts with his work on Fear the Walking Dead since he is no longer a part of The Walking Dead.

AMC announced in June that it has renewed Fear the Walking Dead for a fourth season, just before its Season 3 premiere on June 4 In addition, Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg ({Once Upon a Time") are boarding Fear as co-showrunners, starting with season four. Additionally, Scott M. Gimple, executive producer and showrunner of The Walking Dead will become an executive producer of Fear the Walking Dead. In the second half of its second season, Fear the Walking Dead averaged 5.3 million viewers per episode, including 3.4 million adults 25-54 and 3 million adults 18-49 in Nielsen live+3 ratings, firmly establishing Fear as one of the top shows on cable. AMC previously announced that Fear the Walking Dead showrunner Dave Erickson would be transitioning off of the show upon completion of production of season 3 to develop new products for AMC Studios.

The Robert Kirkman comic books and The Walking Dead TV series have previously established that Abraham Ford is in fact from Houston, and after the zombie apocalypse started, Abraham and his wife Beth and their two children were holed up in a local grocery store. After his wife was raped while he was out on a supply run, Abraham killed the rapist and two others, causing his family to flee from him, and he found them dead on the side of the road a few days later. Shortly thereafter, he met up with Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), who told him of a "mission" to get to Washington D.C., which later lead to them meeting Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos) before they crossed paths with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group. It was also possible that this crossover character could also be Christian Serratos' Rosita, but since she's still alive on The Walking Dead it would have made more that a deceased character would be the most likely candidate to return as showrunners wouldn't have to worry about conflicting schedules on both shows. How this will now play out with Morgan still being alive on The Walking Dead will be interesting to see.

It was also recently announced that actress Jenna Elfman will be joining Fear the Walking Dead as a series regular, alongside Garrett Dillahunt, although no details have been given on their character. Production is expected to begin soon, so hopefully we'll hear more about this crossover soon. Be sure to check back for more details on this hit AMC series as soon as they become available.
