Glen Mazzara Replaces Frank Darabont as 'Walking Dead' Showrunner
Glen Mazzara is taking over the reins of "The Walking Dead". Following shocking report of Frank Darabont stepping down as showrunner of the AMC hit series, sources have now confirmed that Mazzara will step in as the new showrunner, while still serving as executive producer alongside Robert Kirkman.
Mazzara was initially hired at the beginning of "Walking Dead" season 2 as No. 2 to Darabont on the writing staff. His previous credits include "The Shield", "Life", "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" and "Hawthorne".
It is still unclear why Darabont dropped out of the showrruner position and if he is going to stay on the show in another capacity. Recently at Comic-Con, he shared about the long working hour for "Walking Dead", but gave no hint that he would give up the job.
The showrunner change reportedly does not affect the production of season 2, which is still scheduled for Sunday, October 16 premiere.
