‘The Walking Dead’ renewed for fourth season, but showrunner steps down

You wouldn’t think AMC would announce a renewal of the network’s most popular show, “The Walking Dead,” on Take Out the Trash Day (a.k.a. right before a holiday weekend) — but it makes more sense when the announcement is accompanied with a statement like this:

Adding that the network was grateful for Mazzara’s hard work and the decision was “amicable,” the announcement noted that Mazzara will remain in charge and the exec producer through the second half of the third season.

Mazzara had been a replacement himself — he was brought in to take over for showrunner Frank Darabont, who, in a surprise move, stepped down after Season 1.

“The Walking Dead” resumes the rest of the third season on Feb. 10.
