The Walking Dead Renewed for Season 9 amid creative changes


The Walking Dead and its television universe that includes Fear The Walking Dead continues to be a money maker for television network AMC.

Further to the news that Season 9 will air late 2018 it will have a new creative direction. Angela Kang who has written for the show since 2011 will take over show running duties from current head honcho Scott M. Gimple.


Creatively The Walking Dead has always responded to its new show runners as they have come and gone which has always made the quality of the show vary. This might be why AMC have announced Scott M. Gimple as the new “Chief Content Officer” for the Walking Dead Franchise.

Season 8 continues 25th February 2018 and Season 9 debuts end of 2018.

David has an undergraduate degree in Drama and first showed symptoms of a mind blown by cinema after watching The Godfather too many years ago to remember. He enjoys binge watching TV shows because that is the only way to watch them, right? The West Wing, The Sopranos and The Wire rank among his favourites of all time; the list could go on but changes the more he watches. Books, comics and games are also enjoyed in different moods. Finishing that novel is a life ambition.
