‘The Walking Dead’ Season 4 Adds New Writers, What Will Change?

The Walking Dead Season 4 Writers

Fans of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead‘ are likely well versed in all the behind-the-scenes drama, as this fall’s fourth season will see writer/producer Scott M. Gimple rise to the rank of showrunner, following Glen Mazzara’s exit. Already speculation has run abound how the new showrunner might change the series, but what can we expect now that the writing staff has added scribes Curtis Gwinn, Channing Powell and Matt Negrete to the ranks? Find out the latest on ‘The Walking Dead’ season 3 inside!

The recent ‘Walking Dead’ episode “Clear” put to rest a number of fan concerns about the series going forward, as writer and future showrunner Scott M. Gimple delivered one of the AMC drama’s best, most emotional hours to date. Now, the creative re-vamp behind the acclaimed zombie thriller’s upcoming fourth season continues, as The Hollywood Reporter has announced that writers Curtis Gwinn and Channing Powell will join fellow recruit Matt Negrete in the writers’ room as production on season 4 gets underway.

Gwinn previously wrote for Adult Swim comedy ‘NTSF:SD:SVU::’ and MTV zombie parody ‘Death Valley,’ while both Powell and Negrete have a history with USA’s ‘White Collar.’ The trio joins the existing staff of Gimple, series creator Robert Kirkman, Greg Nicotero, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Evan T. Reilly, Angela Kang, Nichole Beattie and more.

It isn’t quite known where ‘The Walking Dead’ will head in season 4, whether staying with the prison or moving on to a new location, but it certainly seems the series will have plenty of fresh voices come season 4, for better or for worse.
