Morgan Jones has become the face of Fear the Walking Dead's social media accounts.
A photo of the Lennie James character training from a sequence in The Walking Dead has been plastered with the Fear the Walking Dead logo and inserted above the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the show. Given Morgan's combat gear and overall costume, it might be an indication of Morgan's story continuing in the aftermath of The Walking Dead Season 8 rather than picking up during one of his absences.

The same banner image is sprawled across the top of Fear the Walking Dead's official Facebook page, as well.
"The things that the writers are doing with Morgan and the way that they're navigating, it's not really a spoiler alert, but the way that Morgan transitions through the crossover is really, really interesting," Morgan actor Lennie James told ComicBook.com. "The springboard that goes from The Walking Dead to Fear is a real... He goes with some kind of trajectory. It is a full, well-thought out journey that Morgan goes on. A lot of it is tied to his relationship with Rick. A lot of it is tied to his relationship to this group of people that he feels conflicted about caring for and wanting to protect."(Photo: Gene Page/AMC)
With Morgan's path to Fear being set over The Walking Dead's next nine episodes, the theories regarding the two shows ultimately merging will only gain steam. Still, the reason for Morgan to abandon his fellow survivors who also started in Atlanta, especially Rick Grimes, must be incredibly heavy to drive him so far away.
"He gets really messed up," James said of the remaining Season 8 journey. "That's about as much as I can say."
Fear the Walking Dead returns for its fourth season in 2018. The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its eighth season on February 25, 2018. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
