Supervising producer Scott Gimple is the showrunner to replace Glen Mazzara on The Walking Dead's fourth season...

AMC giveth, and it taketh away. With the confirmation that The Walking Dead had been granted a fourth season arrived news that Glen Mazzara, whose incumbency as showrunner coincided with a marked increase in fan satisfaction, was to leave. Mazzara will see out the remaining half of the current season, but owing to a reported "difference of opinion" about how best to approach the fourth season, that'll be his lot.

You won't need reminding that going toe to toe with showrunners is fast becoming AMC's speciality, after the inauspicious removal of Twd's original creative boss, Frank Darabont, halfway through season two, and the network's extended 'negotiations' with Mad Men's Matthew Weiner which led to an eighteen-month hiatus between seasons four and five.
