"The Walking Dead" is kicking off its final 11th season in August.

If you're hoping for another potential crossover with spin-off "Fear TWD," it doesn't sound like it's in the cards - yet anyway.

"We actually started shooting season seven yesterday," co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss told Insider last Wednesday.

"Right now, we don't have any plans for another crossover in the works, but, you know, we're at the beginning of the season," Chambliss added, saying, "So, who knows?"

Why we'd be surprised if we don't see another crossover before 'TWD' ends: Morgan started on the flagship series

Insider inquired about a potential crossover between the two shows during the final expanded season of "TWD," which is set to end in 2022, because it's tough to imagine the series ending without Morgan Jones (Lennie James) being seen on there again.

Morgan's the only surviving character left from the pilot episode, other than Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), who's off "somewhere" with the CRM.

It seems unlikely that Grimes may show up on "TWD" again, unless the show teases his whereabouts for the long-anticipated "Walking Dead" movie.

So seeing Morgan - who is still very much alive in "TWD" universe - seems like a great alternate option if the shows aligned their timelines again (and, honestly, why wouldn't they at this point?).

Another series crossover would be a great way to tie up Dwight and Sherry's story lines with Negan. (If Maggie's not going to kill off Negan, Sherry certainly still has some beef with the former Savior leader.)

"TWD" Showrunner Angela Kang recently told Insider that filming for the final season should run through next March. Kang also said the writers were still figuring out some of the story details.

"Basically we're shooting this season through March of next year, so there's another 12 months to go for us in terms of just filming," Kang told Insider. "So, it's all being worked on, as we speak, like literally as we speak, because my writer's room is in session."

So there's definitely still time to figure out a way to work in "Fear" characters. After over a decade of "TWD," it seems like that would be a satisfying way to tie up some loose ends.
