According to Deadline, supervising producer Scott Gimple is entering final negotiations to replace Glenn Mazzara as showrunner on THE WALKING DEAD.

Last month, AMC announced that they had officially picked up The Walking Dead for a fourth season, and that Glen Mazzara would not be returning.

AMC stated, "Both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways. This decision is amicable and Glen will remain on for post-production on season 3B as showrunner and executive producer."

Mazzara took over the show after the first season, when Frank Darabont departed the series.

Gimple has been a staple of The Walking Dead since the beginning of season 2, when he joined the writing staff.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan,Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, David Morrissey and Danai Gurira. The second half of season 3 premieres on Sunday, February 10th.
