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.

Game of Thrones won the Emmy for most outstanding drama series Monday at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones won the series its third Emmy in the category. It was the show’s second Emmy of the evening, after Peter Dinklage’s win for his role as Tyrion Lannister.

Game of Thrones beat out The Americans, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This is Us, and Westworld.

Each season of Game of Thrones has been nominated for best drama at the Emmys since its first season debuted at the awards show in 2011. Seasons 5 and 6 both took home the Emmy in 2015 and 2016 respectively. A handful of other actors including Lena Headey, Kit Harington, and Emilia Clarke have also earned Emmy nominations over the years.

While the seventh season of Game of Throne is not widely regarded as the best of the series, it was certainly a big one and the hype around the show has not died down ahead of its next season.

Game of Thrones returns for its eighth and final season in 2019.

Final trailer for ‘Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown’ is painful and poignant

“Everybody who had dreams of traveling with Tony, it’s exactly as cool as you think it is.”

“W. Kamau Bell narrates the last trailer for the twelfth and final season of CNN’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Kamau’s voice over is particularly fitting considering his collaboration episode with the celebrity chef was the last episode Bourdain would ever narrate.

The series return takes Bourdain and Bell to Kenya. The following episodes will show Bourdain alongside other guests in Manhattan and Texas. (The uncompleted footage shot in Paris at the time of Bourdain’s death is unlikely to be shown.)

The series’ final episode will serve as a tribute to Bourdain’s life featuring interviews with cast and crew discussing the show’s legacy.

The final episodes of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown will begin premiering September 23 at 9pm ET on CNN.”
