During San Diego’s Comic-Con this summer, “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman hinted that we’d soon be seeing a crossover between “The Walking Dead” and its spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead”.
Kirkman confirmed crossover plans during a Friday session for “The Walking Dead” at New York Comic-Con, reports Deadline, teasing how exactly that crossover would take place.
“There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name, to another show, that I will not name,” Kirkman told the crowd of the crossover, which is expected to take place sometime next year. “This is a huge event in the world of ‘The Walking Dead’.”

“The first episode has a lot of nods to previous seasons,” said exec producer Greg Nicotero at a press conference before the panel, teasing a “shot for shot” sequence that would pay homage to a past episode.
“We’re setting the stage for our war,” Nicotero added.
“This is the payoff for last season, for Rick,” added star Andrew Lincoln of his character. “I think he is ready for battle.”
Meanwhile, ET Canada caught up with “Fear the Walking Dead” star Kim Dickens, who confirmed news of the upcoming crossover but didn’t have much scoop to offer.

“All I can verify is that Robert Kirkman teased it at this past summer’s ComicCon with us there,” Dickens told ET Canada, adding that since the news has also been revealed at New York Comic-Con, “I think that means it’s happening.”
She added: “But, you know, I’m not an official spokesperson on that. I just show up and read the lines.”
