THE WALKING DEAD Has A New Showrunner, Scott M. Gimple Out For Season Nine

AMC made the obvious announcement today; The Walking Dead would return for a ninth season. The surprise is the series will get its first female showrunner as Scott M. Gimple moves to a new position and Angela Kang takes over, according to reports by Deadline.

“I am beyond thrilled to be stepping into this new role with The Walking Dead. Working on this series and having the opportunity to adapt Robert Kirkman’s amazing comic has been a fangirl dream come true for me. I’m excited to continue working with Scott and the wonderfully supportive folks at AMC, and can’t wait to share the next chapter of the story with our fans next fall,” said Kang.

Kang has worked on the show for the past seven years on the writing team and Co-Executive Producer. Will Kang cover the Whisper War?
