Fear the Walking Dead won't be attending New York Comic Con after originally planning to bring its cast and crew to Madison Square Garden for a Thursday panel.
The change in plans was revealed on Thursday when New York Comic Con shared a tweet reading, "Really sorry to say that due to unforeseen walker attacks at the ranch, the cast & crew of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead can't attend #NYCC." Twitter user Anthony Burke responded to the tweet begging for the news to be false, but the NYCC account responded with, "It's only for FEAR The Walking Dead panel, not the Walking Dead panel. Thanks!"

Heading into the already promised Season 4, the series will see a shake up in the form of new showrunners as Dave Erickson will be departing the AMC series.
The Walking Dead will still have its Saturday night panel in Madison Square Garden.
