The Walking Dead and its Fear-ful prequel remain about a decade and continent apart, but a link between the pair has finally been found. Months after reports of a crossover, The Walking Dead confirms Lennie James’ Morgan will rejoin the franchise in a crossover role on Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead.
AMC isn’t about tot let go of its signature Walking Dead aftershow Talking Dead, nor its Fear-ful or Saul-acious counterparts, but it seems the gig is finally fulltime. Chris Hardwick will lead a Talking With Chris Hardwick weekly series when neither Walking Dead is in session.
AMC may have curiously opted a to eschew Fear The Talking Dead as a title (they were okay with puns for Talking Bad), but Preacher will have no such luck when it comes to its own Hardwick-hosted after-show. That’s right, we’ll all be Talking Preacher after the May 29 premiere.
Oh, did you think the spinoff AMC birthed to extend the (un) life of The Walking Dead would call it quits after Season 2? You poor dears, of course Fear The Walking Dead will return for Season 3 in 2017. Our vote: zombies on the moon!
Having been steadily employed by AMC and adjacent to all things Walking Dead for several seasons now, Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick isn’t likely to turn on the zombie smash thriller, even after a controversial finale. That said, a recent Q&A saw the Nerdist moderator heatedly defending the cliffhanger conclusion to Season 6, insisting, “it’s not poor writing, it’s exceptional storytelling.”
Welp, you were already going to spend hours after Game of Thrones Season 6 episodes discussing everything in exhaustive detail, so why not official hosts? Yes, the world of Westeros will have its own HBO after-show for Season 6, as hosted by Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan under HBO’s partnership with Bill Simmons.
Welp, if Walking Dead followup Talking Dead could birth the less-cleverly named Talking Bad, it was only a matter of time Better Call Saul would follow suit. So decrees AMC for Season 2 of the prequel lawyer dramedy, tapping Chris Hardwick for the even less-cleverly named Talking Saul.
Just when you thought the back half of The Walking Dead Season 6 would bring enough zombies our way, Fear will strike again in April. AMC has officially set a Season 2 premiere for the prequel zombie thriller, splitting its extended episode order, and granting its own Talking Dead to boot. Technically … Fear the Talking Dead?
Current chatter amongst The Walking Dead steers fans in every direction as to whether or not #GlennLives, but what don’t we have to worry will return? The Walking Dead itself, now that AMC has expectedly renewed its monster hit for Season 7, Talking Dead and all.
