The character who will reprise his role in The Walking Dead-Fear the Walking Dead crossover event was announced on the analysis program Talking Dead Sunday night.

Franchise creator Robert Kirkman announced at New York Comic Con last month that someone 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.

Meanwhile, Rick tries to make a deal with the Scavengers.

On Sunday, Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick revealed Lennie James, who plays Morgan on The Walking Dead, will appear on Fear the Walking Dead in Season 4, which is set a few years earlier than The Walking Dead.

"Surprise! Yeah, it's me," James said via satellite from Austin, Texas, where he will start shooting Fear the Walking Dead Monday.

James said he has already finished filming on The Walking Dead and said his goodbyes to the cast and crew, but he did not divulge any details about what will become of his character on the flagship show.
