The Walking Dead is still a big hit on AMC, and as such, the network has not only renewed the show for a ninth season, they’ve decided to promote current showrunner Scott Gimple to a Chief Creative Officer position. One that will oversee the “Walking Dead Universe”, which could mean that we’re getting another spinoff show. As for his replacement, Angela Kang will take over for him. She’s been a writer and Executive Producer on the series, and Gimple said in a statement that not only was he honored with the promotion, he views Angela as the perfect replacement for him:

“The Walking Dead is a special show which started in an entirely different era of TV, and continues, in this new era, to confidently take chances to tell compelling stories that excite audiences and make them deeply connect with its characters, adapting Robert Kirkman’s brilliant comic book,” Gimple said. “As the show closes in on its tenth year, I’m honored to keep working with the talented, dedicated people behind and in front of the camera to make it all it can be, while expanding the world of The Walking Dead with new narratives like Fear the Walking Dead and a whole host of truly cool stories ahead. Angela is a big part of the heart and soul of The Walking Dead, and I’m thrilled to help facilitate her vision of the show’s next era.”
