There is a character in The Walking Dead that could be a late favorite to appear as the crossover character that targets Fear the Walking Dead in the form of a prequel: Dwight by Austin Amelio.
With the crossover supposedly taking place at Fear the Walking Dead & # 39; s fourth season, the background story of a current or previous character from The Walking Dead ] has been the big bet among fans. Although many fans suspect that Michael Cudlitz will repeat his role as Abraham Ford to give fans who worship the late character a reason to tune Fear, executive producer Greg Nicotero discredited the possibility at ComicBook.com & # 39; s After the Dead .
Negan by Jeffrey Dean Morgan would be the next choice for many fans, and certainly AMC executives expect to see an audience increase in the series of brothers Walking Dead . However, the actor will have an extremely limited time between other production obligations such as [Rampage and a possible season as Batman. In addition to those factors, Morgan closed Season 8 of The Walking Dead just one week ago. Morgan is also the most expensive possibility. All these reasons make the iconic villain less likely to appear in Fear .
The traitor to Negan, however, could be on board.
Dwight plays a key role in Negan's story as fans know about Here's Negan comic. In fact, the story of how Dwight collides with Negan and eventually becomes his follower, along with his wife Sherry, is one of the most interesting stories that writer / creator Robert Kirkman has injected into the source material of the show. In addition, the hometown of Austin Amelio is the same as Fear the Walking Dead & # 39; s fourth season, when the show picked up and moved to Austin, Texas.
With The Walking Dead in production from the end of April through November, many cast members could move away from repeating their roles for longer than necessary. For example, although the story of Rosita by Christian Serratos begins somewhere near Dallas, Texas. Serratos, however, would prefer to spend more time with her newborn son than to produce more episodes of Rosita and no one could blame her.
For an actor like Amelio, repeating the role in his own backyard could make him serve as the crossover a little more attractive and possible, unlike another possibility of Josh McDermitt Eugene Porter. Like much of the cast Walking Dead McDermitt retires to Los Angeles out of season.
The scope of the character's cross in Fear of Walking Dead (or vice versa, since there is no final failure yet) is unknown. However, if the event leads to the appearance of the character in The Walking Dead Madison and his group are in trouble. As fans of The Walking Dead know, none of the characters in Fear the Walking Dead arrived in Alexandria or near it with Dwight or the other communities.
In any case, the official announcement whose character will cross between the two Walking Dead shows will come Sunday night during Talking Dead .
The Walking Dead airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. m. AMC. For full information and insider information throughout the season, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
