From the announcement that The Walking Dead was to receive a spin off series, it had been speculated by Fans that a cross over between the two shows could happen, but with them being dismissed by producer, but could that change.

Star of Fear the Walking Dead Cliff Curtis wants Rick Grimes to appear at some stage.

“I’d really like to have a beer with Rick Grimes, I’ll tell you” he said in an interview.

Curtis plays series regular character Travis Manawa, an English teacher who couldn’t be more different to Andrew Lincoln’s police officer Grimes in the original series.

“I really wouldn’t mind if he popped down to LA, maybe got on a motorbike, we could go down watch some baseball, maybe have a couple of beers – and I could get some tips on how to use one of those rifles.

“Maybe Rick Grimes… you can hire his services. He could train up our family and get us all equipped to dealing with the zombie apocalypse. I think that’s a cool idea.”

Fear the Walking Dead will take viewers back to the start of the zombie apocalypse in Los Angeles.

The show will follow the trials of high school guidance counsellor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her blended family, whose lives are turned upside down when the dead begin to rise.

When asked about a potential crossover with The Walking Dead, Curtis said: “I’m really open. I think for a start though we really have to establish our show in its own right and really get to know who we are.

“Of course I don’t know if we’re gonna make it to a second season so let’s not talk too soon; but I think we really need to establish our own audiences first and get people really routing for our characters and believing in our characters.

“Once that’s established and we know who we are – maybe season 3 or 4 if we get that far – then I think it would be really cool. But by then they will be on to season 9 or 20 but until then why not? Mix it up a bit.”

Fear the Walking Dead airs on August 23 in the US on AMC, and August 31 on AMC UK from BT.
