'The Walking Dead' Gets New Showrunner

This move also means that The Walking Dead ship needs a new captain, and Gimple has passed the torch to Angela Kang. It makes sense for the network to shake things up at this time, and Kang's history with the franchise makes her a safe and familiar choice for moving forward.

"Further, with gratitude and admiration, we also recognise Scott's broad impact on, and leadership of, the content that fuels our TWD universe". "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'".

There was a behind-the-scenes shakeup on that series, too, with Andrew Chambliss and Ian B. Goldberg taking over as showrunners this season after the departure of co-creator Dave Erickson.

The Walking Dead recently celebrated a big milestone with 100 episodes.

Behind the scenes, The Walking Dead has seen some showrunner mixups already.

Kang has written some 20 episodes of the show to date, including the acclaimed Coda and Still. Kirkman is still very much involved with "The Walking Dead" and will remain in his same role as executive producer but keeping Gimple in place was a crucial piece of the puzzle.
