Default Scott Gimple no longer the showrunner, replaced by Angela Kang

It took them too fxcking long to do this, to be honest. I wish they just fired him
Quote:
The dead shall rise again for AMC.

The cable network has renewed The Walking Dead for a ninth season and signed now-former showrunner Scott M. Gimple to an overall deal in which he will now serve as chief content officer of the franchise. In his new role, Gimple will oversee The Walking Dead's vast TV universe, including both the flagship and spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, as well as gaming and future brand extensions on a variety of platforms, among other areas.

Yeah, they are promoting Gimple, which is not exactly a good thing. I think we can fully expect a third Walking Dead series soon.

Gimple lost 10 million viewers in a season, his dialogue is terrible, and the directing/editing has just deteriorated. This promotion is ridiculous.


I guess I'll post this here too... Episodes written or co-written by Angela Kang:

2.06 – "Secrets"
2.11 – "Judge, Jury, Executioner"
3.05 – "Say the Word"
3.11 – "I Ain't a Judas"
4.02 – "Infected"
4.12 – "Still"
4.16 – "A" (co-written with Scott M. Gimple)
5.03 – "Four Walls and a Roof" (co-written with Corey Reed)
5.08 – "Coda"
5.15 – "Try"
6.03 – "Thank You"
6.10 – "The Next World" (co-written with Corey Reed)
6.13 – "The Same Boat"
7.03 – "The Cell"
7.07 – "Sing Me a Song" (co-written with Corey Reed)
7.09 – "Rock in the Road"
8.05 – "The Big Scary U" (co-written with Scott M. Gimple and David Leslie Johnson)
8.06 - "The King, the Widow, and Rick" (co-written with Corey Reed)
8.08 - "How It's Gotta Be" (co-written with David Leslie Johnson)

I'm hoping it's just a BS title for him to allow everyone to save face.

Default Re: Scott Gimple no longer the showrunner, replaced by Angela Kang

I'll repeat what I posted in "The Walking Dead" General Stuff & Thaaaangs Thread :

EW's article on the renewal,the new showrunner, etc. proves how much in denial AMC is over this show's current output. They seem to turn a blind eye over the shows constant and often repeated problems, which shouldn't be surprising it's AMC. However, I was hoping AMC would come to their senses and fire Gimple. Instead he gets promoted for his mediocrity as "Chief Content Officer". And will now "oversee the Walking Dead TV franchise, including the companion series Fear The Walking Dead and future brand extensions" like he's Kevin Feige or something. Really?! Even though Angela Kang will be taking over as showrunner Gimple will still have final say over scripts, direction, etc, which in my eyes means Season 9 and onwards (possibly FTWD Season 4) won't improve but continue to diminish in quality. Doesn't help AMC and Gimple seem to be intent on milking this franchise dry, while interest and ratings continues to decline.

when I first heard about this I thought it meant that they fired him, and reality is it's the complete opposite so yeah. I don't know how the future of this franchise is gonna go

I actually kinda remember some of those episodes which gives me hope. I haven't watched the show since S6 (and even then it took me months after airing to actually catch up back then to that point).

But she did Coda too.... so she wrote the completely idiotic way that Beth went out. Those damn scissors.

But he promoted out of this lol. So even though she is the showrunner, how much power will she have compared to him?

Nothing I've seen of Gimple suggests that he doesn't have an overinflated view of his own ideas.

Gimple's writing and showrunning went downhill when Seth Hoffman left the show. Hoffman was his co-EP: the #2 guy in the writers room.

4.08 - "Too Far Gone"
4.11 - "Claimed" (co-written with Nichole Beattie)
4.15 - "Us" (co-written with Nichole Beattie)
5.05 - "Self Help" (co-written with Heather Bellson)
5.07 - "Crossed"
5.11 - "The Distance"
5.16 - "Conquer" (co-written with Scott M. Gimple)
6.02 - "JSS"
6.09 - "No Way Out"
6.12 - "Not Tomorrow Yet"

Kang, along with Matthew Negrete, stepped up but the show hasn't been the same since.

Worst case scenario is that the show quality and ratings continue to go down. But, who knows. Maybe season 9 will be much better.

The show has been on a downhill for much longer IMAO. I wish they would just hire Frank Darabont back. He built the show and made it amazing in the first place. No season has so far been as consistently great as Season 1.

I do wonder what a season 3/4 of The Walking Dead would have looked like with Darabont in charge.
