AMC has released two pics and a new video of Lennie James on the set of Fear the Walking Dead. The show is currently shooting its fourth season in Austin, TX, and as we learned yesterday on Talking Dead, his character Morgan Jones is crossing over from The Walking Dead to Fear. A crossover was first announced by series creator Robert Kirkman at New York Comic Con in October. You can watch Lennie James on the set of the show in the video below. Check out our gallery to see him at a table read with co-stars Colman Domingo, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey, and on the set with showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg. James is expected to be a regular on Fear the Walking Dead.
Airing on Sunday, December 3, The Walking Dead Episode 8.07 is titled “Time for After” and is described as follows: “Negan has to enlist the help of his lieutenants in solving a huge issue facing the Sanctuary; Rick and the group continue to enact the plan.”
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead reigns as television’s most watched drama for Adults 18-49. The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse. The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.
The series stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Amelio, Tom Payne, Xander Berkeley, Khary Payton, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
“As longtime fans of Lennie James and his portrayal of Morgan Jones, we are thrilled to have him join the cast of ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’” said Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, showrunners and executive producers for “Fear the Walking Dead.” “We look forward to working with Lennie to continue the journey Morgan began on ‘The Walking Dead.’”
“To take Morgan into this new realm and landscape, to see who he could now be, to see where his story could go in the world of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ is wonderfully exciting and I am really looking forward to the challenge,” said James. “My time on ‘The Walking Dead’ has been a blessing and one of the top working and personal experiences of my life. That cast and crew will have my love, my respect and my deep gratitude until the end of my days.”
