The Walking Dead is officially coming back for a ninth season on AMC and a new showrunner has been announced. Angela Kang, who's been with the show since 2011 and is now a co-executive producer, will take over as "TWD's" showrunner for Season 9.

President of AMC Charlie Collier praised Kang's contribution to the show.

'Further, with gratitude and admiration, we also recognize Scott's broad impact on, and leadership of, the content that fuels our TWD universe'. Together, we will dream bigger and more broadly than ever before. Angela Kang commented, "I am beyond thrilled to be stepping into this new role with 'The Walking Dead.' Working on this series and having the opportunity to adapt Robert Kirkman's incredible comic has been a fangirl dream come true for me".

The ninth season begins in the fall, one of the key players from the series will be moving over to Fear the Walking Dead when it returns for its fourth season.

"I think Scott first brought it up to me as a possibility probably about a year ago at this point", Kirkman, an executive producer on the show, said.

Even with steadily falling ratings, the long-running AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead is still one of the most watched TV shows. Gimple will be the person in charge of the direction of both shows as well as any future "Walking Dead" projects that might sprint up in the future.

Kang has worked on the show since 2011, where she served as a story editor and writer and has been a co-executive producer since 2013 (season 5).

The Walking Dead returns on February 25 in the USA, and airs on Fox February 26 in the United Kingdom at 9pm.

In partnership with Next Games, AMC has launched a successful mobile game "The Walking Dead: No Man's Land" and a new location-based augmented reality game, "The Walking Dead: Our World", set to launch globally early this year. He also recognized the importance of keeping audiences excited and to continue the connection they have with the characters. Fans have also been venting their frustrations with Gimple for some time, most notably for the decision to that teased the death of a major character. He's since collected up as many comics, statues, and autographed material related to movies and music that he can get his hands on.
