    The dead shall rise again for AMC.

    The cable network has renewed The Walking Dead for a ninth season and signed now-former showrunner Scott M. Gimple to an overall deal in which he will now serve as chief content officer of the franchise.

    In his new role, Gimple will oversee The Walking Dead's vast TV universe, including both the flagship and spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, as well as gaming and future brand extensions on a variety of platforms, among other areas. Writer/co-exec producer Angela Kang (pictured below) has been promoted to executive producer and showrunner, replacing Gimple in the latter role, of The Walking Dead. Kang has been with The Walking Dead since 2011, writing some 20 episodes of the show, including critically praised hours including "Coda" and "Still.

    " Kang will take over as showrunner starting with season nine, which will premiere in late 2018.

    Not happy about this, and Morgan leaving. Ezekiel is fucked, they love to kill black guys on the show.

    They kill off the best characters.

    One consolation though, look for abraham Ford on Fear The Walking Dead with its crossover coming next season

    I don't give a crap about comparing it to what came before it. If it's good, it's good IMO. Did you see the season opener for Black Mirror? That was killer.

    SE4 ep1 and 2 are the only episodes I've ever watched because of the hype. You owe it to yourself to watch that one. 100% recommended.

    Agreed. The book has some really compelling stuff going on right now and they can keep the show interesting but it makes zero sense to kill coral.
