The rumors are true – Fear the Walking Dead will officially crossover with The Walking Dead. This all began when Robert Kirkman all but confirmed the crossover during The Walking Dead Panel at New York Comic Con 2017. As we live-tweeted at the event,
“I’ll say this: There are two #WalkingDead shows. There is one character that I will not name that will appear in the other show that I will not name. More news coming in the following months” – @RobertKirkman on potential #FearTWD crossovers with TWD pic.twitter.com/3m4R0XcPr4

Kirkman went on to tease, “Are we going to see an interesting backstory of the Walking Dead character showing up in Fear the Walking Dead? Or are we going to see a Fear the Walking Dead character show up in The Walking Dead, and see a future version of a character? What could happen? Is it going to be something completely different than that?”
Whatever the case, AMC confirmed the crossover with this exciting tweet shortly after the panel:

Although we can’t say when this will happen, we CAN confirm the crossover will NOT occur during Sunday’s Fear the Walking Dead Season 3 finale. So this means it will most likely occur in Season 4, which will probably air sometime in the Spring. Robert even said in his solo New York Comic Con panel, “Ooohhh the things I know about Season 4.” So, which character from each show would you like to see crossover into the other? Let’s start a debate in the comments to discuss all the exciting possibilities.
Fear the Walking Dead concludes its third season with a two-hour episode this Sunday at 9PM. The Walking Dead returns on Sunday, October 22nd at 9PM on AMC.
