'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'".

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

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

She will be at the helm of affairs from season 9.

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. Working on this series and having the opportunity to adapt Robert Kirkman's incredible comic has been a fangirl dream come true for me, ' she said. Season eight also saw the show's viewing figures slump, drawing below eight million U.S. viewers for the first time in over five years.
