Scott M. Gimple is out (sort of), Angela Kang is in.
The Walking Dead will return for a ninth season with Kang, a writer on the show since Season 2, occupying the showrunner’s seat. She’s the series first female showrunner, following Gimple, Glen Mazzara, and Frank Darabont.
Gimple, who has been the showrunner since Season 4, brought stability to the AMC series after tumultuous early years when lawsuits and creative differences between key decision-makers loomed over all. He’ll now move into the role of Chief Content Officer for AMC’s Walking Dead brand, which includes both the main series and the Fear the Walking Dead spinoff.
Kang noted in a statement that she was “beyond thrilled” to be taking the reins on the series (h/t Deadline).
“Working on this series and having the opportunity to adapt Robert Kirkman’s amazing comic has been a fangirl dream come true for me,” she said. “I’m excited to continue working with Scott and the wonderfully supportive folks at AMC, and can’t wait to share the next chapter of the story with our fans next fall.”
Season 8 of The Walking Dead continues on Feb. 25, picking up where the series left off in 2017 with a major character’s death looming — one that The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has since spoken about publicly.
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.
The British reality dating show that you need to start watching immediately
“At precisely 9 p.m. every night for the next three months, just as the sun is setting over the United Kingdom, Twitter comes alive.
There’s nothing in the water and we certainly can’t blame it on the weather. It’s all because of Love Island, a British reality dating show that currently has the nation transfixed. Brits are gripped by the action unfolding on their television screens, and they begin flooding Twitter with their feelings using the #LoveIsland hashtag.
So, what the hell is Love Island? Well, in a nutshell, it’s Britain’s answer to the U.S.’s Bachelor In Paradise. The only difference is that the show airs every single night for three drama-packed months.
The new season of Love Island — which began one week ago — kicked off with the arrival of 11 strangers comprising six men and five women. The women arrive first and exchange hugs with their fellow contestants. Then, as the men arrive one-by-one, the ladies step forward when they see someone they like the look of.
Much like Bachelor in Paradise, the power alternates between the male and female contestants each week. Now, if that sentence….”

Kenan Thompson explains why he ‘fears’ leaving ‘Saturday Night Live’
Kenan Thompson is afraid of what comes after Saturday Night Live for him, and we get it.
“The length of Kenan Thompson’s tenure on Saturday Night Live has become a running joke on Saturday Night Live. And he knows it.
During Donald Glover’s recent monologue, Thompson acknowledged just how long it’s been since he first auditioned in 2003. After entering his 15th season in 2017, he became the longest-serving cast member, dethroning previous record holder Darrell Hammond.
The fact that he’s stayed on is impressive — but the consensus is that if you’re not leaving SNL, you probably don’t have anywhere better to go. Or something else is holding you back
In a Hollywood Reporter interview, Thompson explained….”
