'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.

"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'".
