New showrunner confirmed for season 9 of The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead is back again for a 9th season with AMC and it is being reported that the show is set to have a new showrunner.
Angela Kang (pictured above) is set to take over from Scott M. Gimple with Scott becoming Chief Content Officer on the awesome spin-off Fear The Walking Dead.
“This is an enormously important day for the entire ‘The Walking Dead’ television universe,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, Sundance TV, and AMC Studios. “We are proud to acknowledge Angela’s significant contribution to the series and to set a clear path forward for a ninth season under her direction. Further, with gratitude and admiration, we also recognize Scott’s broad impact on, and leadership of, the content that fuels our TWD universe. Together, we will dream bigger and more broadly than ever before. I know I speak for Angela, Scott and everyone at AMC when I say thanks most of all to the fans and the many talented people who have helped AMC play ‘Dead.’”
