The Walking Dead / Fear the Walking Dead crossover is getting the big-screen treatment – for one night, anyway.
AMC and Fathom Events are bringing a fan event called “Survival Sunday” to 750 theaters across the country on April 15.
The screening will consist of the Season 8 finale of The Walking Dead and the Season 4 premiere of Fear the Walking Dead, both shown without commercials, along with some as-yet-unrevealed “exclusive bonus content.”
The connective tissue here is Morgan Jones (Lennie James), a Walking Dead regular who’ll be crossing over to become a Fear the Walking Dead regular.
The hows and whys of his transition remain unclear. Fear the Walking Dead is set a few years before the events of The Walking Dead, so this isn’t a matter of just having Morgan walk over from one set to another. Unless, that is, these episodes are setting up Fear for a major time jump.
“Survival Sunday” starts at the same moment across all of the continental U.S.: 8:30 p.m. ET, 7:30 p.m. CT, 6:30 p.m. MT, and 5:30 p.m. PT. (Alaska and Hawaii will have their showings tape-delayed to 7:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., respectively.) What this means is that if you’re in the continental U.S., you won’t need to fear spoilers on the internet.
If spending hours in a zombie-infested wasteland surrounded by dozens of other zombie fanatics sounds like your cup of tea, you can head over to FathomEvents.com (or your local box office) for tickets starting Friday, March 16.
