“It is for me. He’s been at it long enough. For me to pick up the stick again, it would have to be an amazing act. It would have to be a situation where I couldn’t look back at all the episodes that happened.” I’ve done it so far and I’m like, “No, I did that in episode so and so, season so and so .” I have no interest in repeating myself on Morgan right now. I think that would tarnish his legacy a bit.”

Morgan’s story won’t end without the character going back to her roots the Walking Dead. The trailer for the 8th season of Fear the walking death revealed that Morgan is returning to King County, Georgia, where he had met Rick at the beginning of the apocalypse.
