Even though the third season has yet to premiere (that takes place in June, folks) AMC has given the greenlight to a fourth season of Fear The Walking Dead, and confirmed who’ll be taking over as showrunners following the departure of David Erickson.
They are the rather unlikely duo of Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, both of whom have worked on the light and fluffy Once Upon A Time (Chambliss since the very beginning, Goldberg between 2011-2013). Chambliss also has Heroes and Dollhouse on his CV while Goldberg has written for The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Flashforward.
The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple will become an executive producer
“We are thrilled to be joining Fear The Walking Dead and couldn’t be more excited to work alongside the wonderful team at AMC on this show,” say Chambliss and Goldberg in the kind of unison that only ever happens in press releases. “We love this universe and are truly honoured to have the chance to contribute to it.”
“We’re very excited to continue the journey of Fear The Walking Dead, and truly look forward to working with the talented team of Andrew Chambliss, Ian Goldberg, and Scott Gimple,” says Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.
