Morgan Will Be The Walking Dead/Fear TWD Crossover Character

The long awaited crossover between The Walking Dead and spinoff Fear The Walking Dead will see Lennie James’ Morgan Jones character bridging the stories between the two series and moving to the latter.

This doesn’t mean that the Morgan character will be leaving TWD, even as James prepares to start filming on FearTWD tomorrow morning in Austin, Texas  – at least not right away.  “Even though Morgan is going to be featured on Fear, he has a lot of story left on The Walking Dead,” said showrunner Scott M. Gimple in a statement read out on Talking Dead on Sunday. “Morgan’s arch on The Walking Dead Season 8 positioned him for the story on Fear,” the EP added. “It was also important to see Fear‘s world and characters through new yet familiar eyes.” – Deadline

Morgan Joins Fear The Walking Dead

If you have 11 whole minutes, the above video goes in depth on the move to have Morgan crossover to Fear TWD. If you don’t, that’s why I’m here. On last night’s Talking Dead Lennie James (who plays Morgan) announced he will be filming season four of Fear TWD today. Now while some websites are upset about the decision, this is definitely a sign of the times.

Lennie James could not have shown up on the set of Fear TWD without someone getting a picture of him. I have to believe producers knew this and wanted to get this news out there on their own terms. While this may be a spoiler on Morgan’s fate for this season of TWD, the news would have leaked either way.

The decision to make Morgan the character to cross over can be debated all day, but once again, filming HASN’T EVEN STARTED YET. I’m willing to see how this all plays out before casting a ton of judgment. My hope is that the Fear TWD timeline lines up with The Walking Dead between seasons 1-3, which is when Morgan went from mild mannered father to zombie hunter.

Morgan (and pretty much every other character) has always been more interesting when he puts inner conflict aside and decides to be an actual human being living in a zombie apocalypse and turn into a murder machine. The Morgan that learned to make cheese and twirl a stick doesn’t interest me, so if we get crazy CLEAR Morgan, I’m down.

I also don’t think that Fear TWD is going to make Morgan the only crossover character, as they have too deep a roster of characters we care about from The Walking Dead to only feature Morgan. Abraham? Dale? SHANE? Pretty much anyone but Andrea is OK with me. The possibilities are endless, and I’m excited to see where they go from here.

Trailer Alert: The Walking Dead Season 8 #SDCC

Don’t start your weekend just yet!

To call season 7 of The Walking Dead disappointing would be an understatement. They introduced the novel’s best villain but outside of the season premiere featuring the death of Glenn and Abraham, the season felt flat. Negan turned into a cornball with his catch phrases and it felt like the show runners missed out on a layup opportunity to kick the show into high gear. Hopefully they learned their lesson, and if this Comic Con trailer is an indication for what’s to come in season 8, it looks like a whole lot of action.

Rick and Maggie are the clear leaders of their respective groups, while Negan still rules with a wooden barb wired baseball bat. This season needs to feature less planning and more fighting, as I don’t think audiences are going to want to see sit through another season of setup without a juicy payoff. Unfortunately the trash people and their idiotic language are back, but outside of that things look as crazy as ever.

The final 30 seconds or so of the trailer is filmed in a hazy, dreamlike fashion, and I think they’re playing off a fan theory that states that everything that’s happening is a flashback that old man Rick is having after the apocalypse has been resolved. Hell of a foreshadow, and something I definitely wasn’t expecting. Season 8 premieres October 22.
