It may not have the same viewership or even close but FTWD is actually the better show now. Not to say its brilliant, but just a lot better than the shambolic Sunday soap that TWD has become.
The character who will crossover between either Fear the Walking Dead or The Walking Dead will be announced on Sunday night's new episode of Talking Dead.
As announced by AMC's Twitter accounts, the "character reveal" will come on November 26 at 10 pm ET during Talking Dead. Of course, the actual reveal may be held until later in the episode which airs until 11 pm ET. As announced at New York Comic Con, one character from either The Walking Dead or Fear the Walking Dead will appear on the other series. Robert Kirkman promises the event will take place in either Season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead or Season 9 of The Walking Dead.
With the announcement coming on the heels of the cast and crew of Fear the Walking Dead heading to Austin, Texas in preparation for production of the show's fourth season, the safe bet is that the crossover will take place on Fear the Walking Dead. As noted by Victor Strand actor Colman Domingo, fans of the AMC shows are going to spot actors on set which often reveals spoilers -- meaning the reveal is just in time for an official announcement to take place ahead fans' set photos revealing the news.
Following the announcement, speculation pointed to Michael Cudlitz reprising his Houston, Texas-based Abraham Ford character on Fear the Walking Dead. While Cudlitz says the idea is "awesome," executive producer Greg Nicotero debunked the theory on an episode of ComicBook.com's After the Dead.
Sunday's Episode 8x06 of The Walking Dead is titled, "The King, The Widow, and Rick." The officially synopsis for The King, The Widow, and Rick reads, "With things looking up for Rick and our group, an argument breaks out at the Hilltop. The consequences of the decision are life versus death."
Fear the Walking Dead returns for its fourth season in 2018. The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on AMC. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.

Is FTWD worth bothering with considering how TWD has turned out?
The Walking Dead's little zombie brother is starting to walk on its own. AMC has confirmed there will be a Fear The Walking Dead season 5.
AMC made the announcement at the Television Critics Association summer tour, while also confirming new seasons of Better Call Saul and McMafia.
Like Better Call Saul, the most recent season of Fear The Walking Dead hasn't even finished yet. The first half of season 4 ended on 10th June, with the explosive finale "No One's Gone." The second half of the season will begin on 12th August in the US.
It's been a tumultuous year for Fear The Walking Dead. This season saw the arrival of Morgan Jones (played by Lennie James) from The Walking Dead universe's flagship show. The show then made numerous other high profile additions to the cast including Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace and Jenna Elfman.
To thin out the crowd after all the new arrivals, Fear The Walking Dead killed two characters who had been around since day one: Madison (Kim Dickens) and Nick (Frank Dillane). The violent, unpredictable world of the zombie apocalypse in The Walking Dead has always meant that the shows can call for a mass upheaval of the cast whenever they'd like but Fear The Walking Dead season 4 was the first time either it or The Walking Dead had tried it in such a systematic fashion. The effect has been at least intriguing enough for AMC to roll the dice on season 5.
Fear The Walking Dead is showrun by Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg. Angela Kang will take over for The Walking Dead in season 9. Previous Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple is now overseeing the entire franchise. That could mean for crossovers or synergy between the two shows in future years.
More as we have it.
Through time jumps, Fear the Walking Dead season 6 could see the spin-off finally catch up to The Walking Dead in terms of the show’s timeline. For the most part, The Walking Dead has been ahead, especially since it was on the air for four whole seasons before the spinoff series premiered, plus the fact that Fear the Walking Dead kicked off at the very beginning of the apocalypse. At this point, there’s still several years between them.
Fear the Walking Dead jumped forward by two years at the start of season 4, putting the show on the same page as the main series for the first time. This enabled AMC to give Morgan (Lennie James) a smooth transition from one show to the other. The two shows going at the same pace didn’t last for very long, though. The Walking Dead leaped way ahead early in season 9 when it featured a massive six-year time skip. Now, Fear the Walking Dead is approximately seven years behind, as the setting is still 2013. The Walking Dead, on the other hand, is well into 2020, and has been for quite some time.
