The Walking Dead Renewed For A 9th Season

Fans of the Walking Dead rejoice! AMC has renewed the show for a 9th season.

While the show has seen its ratings decline in recent seasons, it has remained a powerful one for the network. With the renewal, the network is promoting showrunner Scott M. Gimple to chief content officer for the franchise, where he’ll oversee both The Walking Dead, and Fear the Walking Dead as well as other “potential brand extensions.” He will be replaced as showrunner by writer Angela Kang, who has been with the show since season 2.
