'The Walking Dead' Renewed For Season 9
3 months ago
AMC announced today that The Walking Dead has been renewed for a ninth season. The good news comes during the show's winter break as fans await its return to see how the death of an original character will play out after they were bitten in last month's mid-season finale.
A change in showrunner is being made for Season 9, as longtime writer Angela Kang will take over for Scott M. Gimple, who has been at the helm of the show for the past five seasons. Gimple will still be involved with series though, as he is taking the role of Chief Content Officer, overseeing both The Walking Dead and its spin-off Fear The Walking Dead.
Look for Season 9 of The Walking Dead this fall. For now, Season 8 is set to resume the back-half of its run on February 25.
