Wow! What news we have for you fiends. First Darabont now Mazzara? Sheesh, does The Walking Dead carry a curse? Read on for the details.
Damn it all to hell! Just when the show was getting intriguing and really fun, news has come in that showrunner Glen Mazzara is releasing his reins and stepping away. Mazzara took on the role of showrunner when Frank Darabont bowed out, leaving Mazzara and his team to do their thing. And that “thing” as we were coming to learn, was improve the series greatly.
Head inside for the official AMC statement…
The network says, per TV Line, “Glen guided the series creatively for Seasons 2 and 3. [We’re] 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.”
So, one more showrunner clashes with AMC. What could be the big problem? Mazzara brought it all to us and more, plus amazing ratings. Why replace him?
