Fans have been wondering if and when a crossover between The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead would occur ever since the companion series premiered on AMC. While the idea of having Rick and company cross paths with Madison and her crew isn’t too far-fetched, especially considering how often the characters from both shows are forced to seek refuge in new locations, producer Gale Anne Hurd recently stated that a crossover between both shows was ‘unlikely’ during an interview with ComicBook.com.
Hurd explained why fans should not expect to see the characters of The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead collide anytime soon:
“I don’t think so. Look, there’s so many reason that’s unlikely. First, they are on the Pacific Coast, Mexico. There are no planes. No one’s flying anymore. There’s no cross-country travel that’s easy. That’d be threading a needle, but first you’d have to find it in the haystack.”
Hurd also added that the characters of The Walking Dead are currently too busy preparing for a war with Negan and Saviors to concern themselves with the larger world. Fans will see the preparations for this battle unfold when the series return next month.
This season, Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.
Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Nichols, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tom Payne, Austin Amelio, Xander Berkeley, Pollyanna McIntosh, Steven Ogg, and Katelyn Nacon.
The Walking Dead season eight premieres on October 22, 2017, on AMC.
10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
