The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live: A crossover ahead?

As we prepare for the launch of The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live at the end of the month, could it lead into something more? Or, to be specific, is there a chance that we could be building towards a crossover for a lot of these shows?

There is a certain irony here, at least in that all of these spin-offs (including Dead City and Daryl Dixon) came from the original show. Basically, the idea of a crossover here is just getting the old gang back together.


So, is there still a chance? Well, speaking (per TVLine), franchise creative officer Scott M. Gimple made it clear that it is at least something that he has entertained:

“I didn’t know if I’d be able to tell that story, and you do have to be flexible, you have to have this garden of forking paths and pivot … So when it comes to something like [a huge crossover event], yeah, I do have dreams of merging this all together, and I have laid little breadcrumbs toward that, but you never know exactly when and how [it will come together], because of a variety of reasons.

Dead City is a vibrant show, Daryl [Dixon] is a vibrant show, this one [The Ones Who Live] is … I will just say that I’m building those pathways, but there could be all sorts of pivots along the way that change it. So I guess answer is yes…?”

For now, it certainly does not sound like this is something that will be happening soon; however, who knows what happens in a few years? For now, the most important thing may just be each individual show doing their part to tell great stories. If that happens, the door remains open.
