The Walking Dead Will Return For Season 4 But With A New Showrunner

The Walking Dead has been officially renewed for a fourth season, and while this comes as no surprise, what does is the fact that the show will have a new showrunner when the new season begins. Showrunner Glenn Mazzara will step down after season three.  Mazzara himself says, "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" Rumors had spread that Mazzara was unhappy with creative differences between himself and AMC so things seem to have come to a fold.  Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead had this to say: "I am in full support of both AMC and Glen Mazzara in the decision they have come to and believe the parties came to this decision in the best interest of the future of the show. I thank Glen for his hard work and appreciate his many contributions to The Walking Dead and look forward to working with him as we complete post production on Season 3. I am also excited to begin work on another spectacular season of this show that I know means so much to so many people. This show has always been the result of a wide range of extremely talented men and women working tirelessly to produce their best work collectively. I believe the future is bright for The Walking Dead. Thank you to the fans for your continued support."
