Season 8 of AMC's The Walking Dead finishes up on April 15, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. The final episode of the season will be followed by the Season 4 premiere of Fear the Walking Dead, which will feature the anticipated crossover fans have been waiting to see.
That would be Morgan James (played by Lennie James), the first survivor Rick (Andrew Lincoln) came across in Season 1. Mr. James will be making his way to the prequel series and you can see it on the silver screen thanks to a partnership between AMC and Fathom Events.
In a special screening titled “Survival Sunday: The Walking Dead & Fear the Walking Dead,” you can watch the season finale and premiere for both shows with zero commercials. The one-night only fan event will occur in over 750 theaters across the country and include exclusive bonus content to be announced as April 15 draws nearer.
“Sunday, April 15 marks an epic and highly-anticipated moment for these series, as worlds collide when Morgan crosses over from The Walking Dead and into the new world of Fear,” said Theresa Beyer, SVP of Brand Activation for AMC. “We are thrilled to be working with our terrific partners at Fathom to provide fans from across the country the opportunity to experience this crossover moment in such a special way and among other members of one of television’s most passionate fan communities.”
“The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead have captivated audiences and kept them on the edge of their seats for many years,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “Self-proclaimed ‘Dead-heads’ will have the unique opportunity to come together to experience these two compelling dramas larger-than-life and commercial-free on the big screen for just one night this April.”
"The Key" is the next episode to air for The Walking Dead. As it's the 12th episode, we've still got four left until "Survival Sunday."
