The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead are finally getting the crossover that rabid fans of both shows have wanted since Fear debuted in 2015. Series creator Robert Kirkman revealed the news at the show's New York Comic Con 2017 panel in Madison Square Garden, he didn't say how exactly the crossover will work.

The revelation came when panel host Chris Hardwick asked the burning question: will these two series ever cross over? "Never," Kirkman responded, then explained that he and the rest of the folks behind the shows have been very careful to make sure each show has its own identity despite taking place in the same world: "I think that we've finally gotten to a place with Fear The Walking Dead that it has its own identity, where we can play with some things." Then he finally answered the question:

"So what I'm going to say, and this is all I'm going to say, is that there are two Walking Dead shows," Kirkman began. "I'm not going to name them. But there are two. There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name, and appear in the other show, which I will not name. Now what does that mean? Because these timelines, like, how does that work? Are we going to see an interesting backstory of a Walking Dead character, showing up in Fear The Walking Dead that sets up some crazy things? [...] Or are we going to see a Fear The Walking Dead character show up in Walking Dead and see a future version of a character? What could happen? Is it going to be something completely different than that? Who knows!"
"This is a huge event in the world of Walking Dead, we're very excited about this, and there's going to be some more news on this front in the coming months. So please stay tuned to what they call the internet, or the papers, and you will find out more about this stuff. But it's going to be huge. We're all very excited."

Then, later on, The Walking Dead's official Twitter account also confirmed the killer crossover. Now it's just a matter of time for us to find out how the masterminds behind these zombie series will connect the dots.
