‘The Walking Dead’ Renewed, But Showrunner Departs
It looks like the walkers will live to much on the meat of humanity and anxious eyeballs watching them for another year.
News broke yesterday that ‘The Walking Dead’ has been renewed for a fourth season, but much like last year there are some changes happening behind the scenes on the hit series because it was also announced that current showrunner Glen Mazzara is leaving the show. Which makes Mazzara the second showrunner to depart the series since Frank Darabont.
Mazzara released an official statement saying, “My time as showrunner on The Walking Dead has been an amazing experience, but after I finish season 3, it’s time to move on. I have told the stories I wanted to tell and connected with our fans on a level that I never imagined. It doesn’t get much better than that. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey.”
According to AMC, “Glen guided the series creatively for seasons 2 and 3. AMC is grateful for his hard work. We are both proud of our shared success. Both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways.”
So yet again creative differences have seen off another producer, which means all fans can hope for is that the new showrunner, whoever he or she will be is just as confident than their predecessors because its never a good thing for a TV series when you have to many production changes behind the scenes.
The Walking Dead returns Feb. 10 on AMC.
