Fans of The Walking Dead can look forward to another season of zombie mayhem as AMC has renewed the hit series for a ninth season. Despite the lower ratings, the studio seems keen to continue to milk the franchise a while longer.
Changes though are afoot for the series, and not just in the casting department. Known for famously killing off mainstay cast members, The Walking Dead isn’t just thinning out the herd in terms of the stars but also in production as well.
Former writer turned co-executive producer, Angela Kang has been elevated to showrunner for season nine of the hit series. It will be interesting to see what direction Kang takes for the series following events of season eight and the demise of another cast member on the show.
The Walking Dead Season 8 continues this February.
