It was only about two months ago when we first shared the news with you guys that AMC’s “The Walking Dead” was going to cross over with its spin-off, “Fear the Walking Dead.”
At the time specifics were, of course, being kept under tight wraps. But today we have news that the crossover will incorporate “The Walking Dead” co-star Lennie James, aka Morgan Jones, into the fourth season of “Fear the Walking Dead.”
Don’t believe us? Well, below you can see pics of the man on set as well as a video announcing his character’s crossover.
“To take Morgan into this new realm and landscape, to see who he could now be, to see where his story could go in the world of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ is wonderfully exciting; and I am really looking forward to the challenge,” said James. “My time on ‘The Walking Dead’ has been a blessing and one of the top working and personal experiences of my life. That cast and crew will have my love, my respect, and my deep gratitude until the end of my days.”
Word is that James will join new “FTWD” series regulars Garret Dillahunt and Jenna Elfman as a regular himself, in addition to series mainstays Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, and Danay Garcia.
“Lennie James’ brilliance and humanity in his portrayal of Morgan Jones has been part of the DNA of what makes ‘The Walking Dead’ so fantastic since the very beginning,” said Scott M. Gimple, executive producer for both series. “Morgan’s story will continue in this season of ‘The Walking Dead,’ and then it begins again in the upcoming season of ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ pushing the series — and the ‘Waking Dead’ universe itself — into new directions and possibilities.”
“As longtime fans of Lennie James and his portrayal of Morgan Jones, we are thrilled to have him join the cast of ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’” said Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, showrunners and executive producers for “FTWD.” “We look forward to working with Lennie to continue the journey Morgan began on ‘The Walking Dead.’”
Personally, I don’t watch either show as I quit the series after Shane kicked the bucket in Season 2. But do you think this means Morgan will be killed off in “The Walking Dead”? Regardless of what the powers-that-be say?
