'Walking Dead' Franchise Crossover Character to Be Announced on Sunday's 'Talking Dead'

Chris Hardwick, Greg Nicotero, Khary Payton and DeAngelo Williams on an episode of Talking Dead from earlier this year.

A big announcement will be made on Sunday's edition of Talking Dead, the analysis program's Twitter account said Friday.

"THIS IS IT. The crossover character will be revealed THIS SUNDAY on Talking Dead. Tune in 11/26 at 10/9C. #TWD #FearTWD," the tweet reads.

Talking Dead, which airs after The Walking Dead and its spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, is hosted by Chris Hardwick and features various guests -- frequently cast members -- discussing the events of the most recent episode.

Franchise creator Robert Kirkman announced at New York Comic Con last month that a character from one of his zombie-apocalypse dramas would appear on the other series. He did not say who it was or how he/she would fit into the story since the two shows take place on opposite sides of the country a few years apart.
