The new season will bring with it new co-showrunners in Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, who will succeed Dave Erickson. In addition, “The Walking Dead” showrunner Scott M. Gimple will come on board as an executive producer.
Erickson announced in March that he would step down as showrunner once production wraps, but remain as executive producer. He’s signed a deal with AMC to develop new projects for the cable network.
“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,” Chambliss and Goldberg said in a joint statement. “We love this universe and are truly honored to have the chance to contribute to it.”
Set initially in Los Angeles and then later in Mexico, “Fear the Walking Dead” follows a blended family as it fights to survive at the onset of the zombie apocalypse. Returning for its third season on June 4, the AMC drama stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey,
