AMC has announced that they’ve renewed The Walking Dead, their highly-rated TV series, for a fourth season. The cable channel also said that Glen Mazzara would no longer be involved.
Mazzara took over as showrunner of The Walking Dead after Frank Darabont left and has been in that position for two seasons.
Joint Statement from AMC and Glen Mazzara:
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.
What do you think? Are you glad to know the show is coming back? Do you think that Mazzara’s exit will impact the quality of the series?
