Good news and bad for fans of The Walking Dead TV series…
It’s not a big surprise, but we’re still happy to report that it has been renewed for a fouth season, however show frontrunner Glen Mazzarra has stepped down from the end of this season.
AMC have released this statement:
Today, AMC announces the season 4 pick-up of The Walking Dead.
AMC also jointly announces with Glen Mazzara today that for future seasons, the two parties have mutually decided to part ways. 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. This decision is amicable and Glen will remain on for post-production on season 3B as showrunner and executive producer.
Mazzara is credited with writing six episodes of The Walking Dead and has served as the series showrunner since the departure of Frank Darabont.
The Walking Dead returns with the second half of Season 3 on Sunday, February 10th.
