With the second half of season 3 of The Walking Dead returning in a matter of a few short weeks, information and possible spoilers are starting to come through pretty fast.
First, Scott Gimple is the new showrunner for The Walking Dead.
He was the exiting Glen Mazzara‘s second and he is stepping in for season 4 as season 3 has now concluded filming. The executive producer, who joined the zombie drama during season two, will take over for Glen Mazzara as the series’ third showrunner.
