Morgan walks: Lennie James to leave The Walking Dead for spin-off series

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" reigns as television's most watched drama for adults 18-49.

Fear the Walking Dead's fourth season will be back in 2018.

Instead, it's Morgan Jones, played by the great Lennie James, who will be venturing to the spin-off - and that could be bad news for fans of the main show. The character comes as something of a surprise, as fan theories on the crossover had centered on Michael Cudlitz's Abraham Ford (because the character is from Houston, where Fear hinted at moving in season 4) and Kim Dickens' Madison Clark (due to her Southern accent indicating she could be related to one of the characters on TWD). With James soon set to join Fear as a series regular, it's unlikely that he'll be able to star on both series. "It was also very important to see the characters and the history of Fear through a new perspective that is at the same time familiar".

Falcons WR Julio Jones dominates Buccaneers
Atlanta answered with a field goal of their own on their first possession with kicker Matt Bryant connecting on a 49-yarder. He is the only player in National Football League history to have three games with at least 250 receiving yards.

Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib Ejected for Fighting
The two men were involved in an altercation last season during which Talib ripped Crabtree's chain from his neck . The fight broke into an all-out brawl after players from both teams rushed in to defend their teammates .

John Wall Out At Least Two Weeks
If he's been playing this well through injury, there's a real possibility he sees a bump when he comes back healthy. Early Saturday, the Washington Wizards announced that John Wall underwent an MRI exam on his injured left knee.

James said he has already finished filming on The Walking Dead and said his goodbyes to the cast and crew, but he did not divulge any details about what will become of his character on the flagship show. I've said my goodbyes to the cast and I've said my goodbyes to the crew. Does this mean that it will disappear from Walking Dead? (Remember all that time he spent making cheese?) Still, there's a period of time early in the series when he was separated from Rick's group; it's possible that we'll find him there in Fear, although geographically speaking that could be a bit tricky. Fear takes places around the gap between Seasons 1 and 2, so it could show us more of Morgan between his departure from and first reunion with Rick.

Lennie begins filming on Fear The Walking Dead today, just a week after he wrapped filming The Walking Dead. "There's also a whole rest of season 8 to look forward to of The Walking Dead as well". But regardless of how Fear will pull this off, one thing seems pretty certain: it's time to start bracing for Morgan's exit from Walking Dead, by death or disappearance.
