The new season will continue the apocalyptic adventures of the Clark family and, as previously announced, the first character from The Walking Dead, Morgan Jones (Lennie James), will join the cast.

Season 4 of "Fear the Walking Dead" is expected to premiere this spring on AMC. The spinoff series will return for season four on Sunday, April 15 at 10:00 p.m. before moving to its normal time slot of 9:00 p.m. on Sundays beginning April 22. "I know I speak for Angela, Scott, and everyone at AMC when I say thanks most of all to the fans and the many talented people who have helped AMC play 'Dead'". Season 9 is set air sometime later this year.

The Walking Dead, like the zombie apocalypse its story is about, will never end. The next-closest competitor this season, "The Big Bang Theory", is almost a full point behind it at 2.9.

Gimple is hardly being fired by The Walking Dead- quite the opposite.

Federer favourite despite tough Australian Open draw
But it could be former No.1, Angelique Kerber rising again as she has been the most outstanding player in the New Year. Maria Sharapova will also view it as a chance to claim her first Grand Slam since returning from her doping ban.

The show will feature the survivors crossing paths with Lenny James' Morgan, who is a major character in "The Walking Dead", and will most probably enter the show during the phase before or after he has already lost his son, as co-showrunner Andrew Chamblis said in Cinemablend.

Collider continued on. The new Chief Content Officer mentioned how the world is entering into a "new era" of television. And as for Kang, who began as a writer on the show in 2011 and quickly ascended the producing ranks, fans are surely counting on her to bring new life to the dead.

The Walking Dead recently celebrated a big milestone with 100 episodes. She has written for every season, apart from season 1, including season 2's "Judge, Jury, Executioner", and season 7's "The Cell".

Gimple's promotion comes on the heels of the shocking news that "Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman had signed a first look deal with Amazon Studios for all of his future projects. "I'm excited to continue working with Scott and the wonderfully supportive folks at AMC and can't wait to share the next chapter of the story with our fans next fall". The fact that Gimple will be overseeing even more elements of the franchise means AMC was happy with his performance as showrunner and sees room for more growth of the franchise. He's since collected up as many comics, statues, and autographed material related to movies and music that he can get his hands on.
