The Walking Dead regular, Lennie James will be switching camps to join Fear The Walking Dead in season 4. Many fans speculate the departure could mean the untimely end for fan-favourite Morgan on the hit series as Fear The Walking Dead is a prequel series.
It will be interesting to see how writers will attempt to write Morgan out of the show and how James will come in to his new home on the companion series. The character is one of the initial ones that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) met in the pilot episode.
James appeared in season three as well as season four before signing on as a full on series regular in season five. The actor will portray Morgan until season eight before his big switch to the companion series.
Having Morgan on the show could be a tactical decision by AMC to inject some interest in Fear The Walking Dead due to lower ratings. It looks like one show’s loss could be another’s gain in this scenario.
