The Walking Dead: Official Comic Con Season 8 Trailer

Fans of The Walking Dead and its spinoff Fear the Walking Dead believe they know which character will go from one show to another next year.

Robert Kirkman, creator of TWD comic book series, confirmed the crossover at New York Comic-Con last week leading to excitement from fans who have been hard at work theorising as to which character it could be.

Fans had wondered whether the two would ever crossover since the spinoff began in 2015, however, the fact it's set in Mexico compared to Atlanta - which is where The Walking Dead takes place - has made the logistics of such an occurrence rather tough.

However, these logistics make one character seem like a surer bet than most: Sgt. Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), the moustachioed warrior who perished at the hands of Negan in the traumatic season seven opener.

Abraham is a likely contender considering that, firstly, he's still alive in Fear the Walking Dead's timeline which is currently taking place ahead of events depicted in The Walking Dead.

Also, audiences may remember that Abraham lived in Texas at the time of the outbreak - with Fear's third season being set in Mexico, what's to stop the characters deciding to move north in the show's fourth season, a course that could see their lives collide with Abraham's.

Fans are convinced they've worked it out.

Add to the mix this below tweet from Cudlitz.

Perhaps Madison, Travis and company will meet Abraham shortly before he leaves Texas after the death of his wife, daughter and son.

The Walking Dead season eight airs 22 October in the US on AMC with the UK premiere arriving the following evening (23 October) on FOX and NOW TV. The Fear the Walking Dead finale airs Monday at 9pm on AMC on BT TV which may provide some further clues...
