The Walking Dead Season 4 Confirmed, Mazzara AMC Part Ways
There is still half of Season 3 to go, and Season 4 of AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead has already been confirmed for Season 4. Shaking things up, the network and showrunner Glen Mazzara have agreed to part ways. Mazzara has been the showrunner for Season 2 and 3, replacing original showrunner Frank Darabont. AMC and Mazzara released a joint statement clarifying the change:
“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.”
There hasn’t been an announcement on his replacement, but like I said we still have part 2 of Season 3 to look forward to! It’s gotten crazy for Rick and pretty much everyone else this season, and with the way that the midseason finale ended, fans are chomping at the bit for the show to resume.
