"Undead" fans will be treated on a much-anticipated crossover between The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, this time, on the big screen.
AMC and Fathom Events announced on Thursday a one-night fan event dubbed as Survival Sunday: The Walking Dead & Fear the Walking Dead to hit theaters on April 15. Fans will be able to watch the two zombie apocalypse series collide as The Walking Dead concludes its eighth season and Fear the Walking Dead will premiere its fourth season.
The crossover episode will air on April 15 in 750 select theaters nationwide. Survival Sunday will have no commercial break, and exclusive bonus contents will be given to ticket buyers.
Morgan Into The World Of Fear
The crossover will see Lennie James' character, Morgan, goes into the other side of the world. Rumor has it that the character will appear on both shows on the same night.
"We are thrilled to be working with our terrific partners at Fathom to provide fans from across the country the opportunity to experience this crossover moment in such a special way and among other members of one of television's most passionate fan communities," Theresa Beyer, SVP of Brand Activation at AMC said.
A New Breed Of Fear
In the teaser trailer for Fear the Walking Dead season four, Morgan's opening statement was, "It's not gonna work out how you think." Fans presumed that the remaining survivors of Madison Clark's team will try to cut a deal with Rick Grimes' camp.
Another snippet shows a character talking about how Morgan can trust the team. In the end, Morgan said that in the world of the undead, "we're always on our own."
The crossover is happening not only on the show but also in the production team. TWD's director of photography Michael Satrazemis will be directing 12 episodes of Fear for an entire year.
New characters are set to appear on the upcoming Fear episode including Jenna Elfman, Garret Dillahunt, and Maggie Grace. The crew is shooting on the outskirts of Texas, although they will be back in Austin for the remaining of season four.
"We're switching things up a bunch this season and really brought in a new look and a new atmosphere," Kirkman confirmed. "We're upping the story now and I'm really happy with what's going on right now."
Episodes prior to the season finale of The Walking Dead air every Sunday on Fox. Fear the Walking Dead premieres its fourth season in the United States on April 15 and in the UK on April 23.
