When Fear the Walking Dead returns on AMC tonight, fans will be eagerly tuned into the season premiere following sister show The Walking Dead’s Season 8 finale. Of course, Fear‘s fourth season holds a lot of promise to it with the spinoff now featuring the crossover character, Lennie James’ Morgan, as he links up with Team Madison. However, the actor believes that in due time, his character will once more return to TWD.
It's out in the open that Morgan meets up with his new crew in Texas, with Fear jumping ahead in time for at least part of its storyline this season, as fans have predicted. This has also left many speculating how he'll leave Rick's camp after a grueling season which saw Morgan embrace his violent side against Negan's Saviors.
When asked about him and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) meeting up again, he said to Hollywood Life, "I don’t think the story between, about the relationship between Rick and Morgan, is over yet.” Both men have clashed over leadership of Rick's people over the course of Season 8, which ultimately claimed Carl's life and saw Rick contemplating a truce with Negan.
As for both franchises crossing over in the immediate future, he added, “Is it possible? Yes. Is it probable? I would have to vote no on that one. I don’t see the point in that. I think it’s more likely that the universe would expand more rather than reduce itself back down to just one show."
"But that’s only me speaking as Lennie, that’s not me speaking with any knowledge because they only give me as much as I’m allowed to have and that’s above my pay grade.”
However it plays out, it's clear though that for at least part of its third season, Fear‘s timeline will finally catch up with that of its sister show, meaning all parties could well cross paths with each other.
Fear the Walking Dead returns for Season 4 on April 15th immediately following The Walking Dead’s Season 8 finale.
