Exiting The Walking Dead Showrunner Says Season 8 Finale Will Change The Series Into A New Show

The show could use a ratings boost.

The Walking Dead has been slumping in the ratings as of late, so a change might do some good. The first change is the addition of a new showrunner in Angela Kang. The second comes from departing showrunner Scott Gimple, who said the Season 8 finale will change the series completely.

"This show will be very much a new show next year and with a bigger, new narrative. It was something I was really excited about getting into even before Season 8. And so there was just a certain weight in the air of the kind of conclusion that we were getting closer to. It was a weird graduation for everybody."

Because if there's something that The Walking Dead needs it's the addition of a bigger narrative.

The Walking Dead Season 8 finale airs April 15, followed immediately by the Season 3 premiere of Fear The Walking Dead.
