It was only a matter of time... Since its inception, Fear The Walking Dead has been set in the same world as The Walking Dead. While distance and different timeframes have separated Madison and her family from Rick Grimes and his group, that won't be the case for at least one character much longer, as Robert Kirkman confirmed at New York Comic Con that a crossover between the two series will happen.

According to Deadline, at The Walking Dead New York Comic Con panel this weekend, executive producer (and creator of The Walking Dead comic book series) Robert Kirkman told the audience, "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."

Although an exact date for the crossover is not yet known, the move from one show to the next for one character is expected to take place within the next year. It remains to be seen who will cross over on the series, but Madison's (Kim Dickens) Southern roots have some fans thinking that she could be related to Rick Grimes or Daryl Dixon, while some readers of the comic book series believe that she could become Alpha, the leader of The Whisperers.

Earlier this year, Fear The Walking Dead was renewed for a fourth season that will see The Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple come on board as an executive producer, with Ian Goldberg and Andrew Chambliss taking over the showrunner reigns following the departure of Dave Erickson, who will develop other projects for AMC.
