This has come as a complete surprise, one that I’m sure none of us had seen coming. Unfortunately at this time it looks as if Frank Darabont has stepped down as the showrunner for AMC’s hit show, The Walking Dead.
According to Deadline, he will be stepping down from his duties as showrunner which has come as a shock since Darabont was at this years Comic-Con this past Friday. There is speculation that Darabont could be off the show completely, but they hear that he could stay on in a different capacity.
For me this is such a shock, this was the guy who spent five years trying to get a TV show off the ground based on Robert Kirkman’s comics. However, none of the above has affected the second season of The Walking Dead which is still scheduled for it’s release on October 16th.
