New ‘Walking Dead’ Showrunner Addresses Andrew Lincoln & Lauren Cohan Exit Rumors

The Walking Dead Andrew Lincoln Rick GrimesNew Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang has opened up about the series’ future, as the hit AMC show heads into its ninth season with some changes.

Angela Kan is replacing Scott Gimple as showrunner for AMC’s The Walking Dead as it enters its ninth season. With stars, Andrew Lincoln reportedly leaving the series and Lauren Cohen only appearing briefly this season, The Walking Dead is about to enter a new era. While Kan didn’t confirm the rumors in her interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she did respond to what will look like with all the changes happening behind-the-scenes.

“We don’t want to spoil anything. With anything that happens on the show, no matter who goes in any given season, we’re always having to say goodbye to people, and it’s heartbreaking for us as people, but it’s always in service of the story. We just hope that people will come along on the ride with us because I’m very proud of what we’re doing.”

Kan also talked about how The Walking Dead will move forward without Rick, Carol, and Maggie in the future:

“We started telling a story at the end of last season without Carl, and since there’s so many great characters on the show, different people will step up. It’ll never fill the exact gap that a character leaves but there are other people whose stories will come to the forefront in great ways. With Lauren, she has said that she would like to come back to the show and we would love to have her back; we think there’s more story with Maggie to tell. We already have some plans brewing that I think are pretty cool. So the world of The Walking Dead moves on with whoever we have at the moment. It’s what we’ve always done.”

The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Nichols, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tom Payne, Austin Amelio, Xander Berkeley, Pollyanna McIntosh, Steven Ogg, and Katelyn Nacon.

AMC is expected to premiere the first trailer for The Walking Dead season 9 at San Diego Comic-Con later this month. The series returns for its ninth season this fall on AMC.

Every DC Extended Universe Film Score, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 6

Justice League Zack Snyder DC Warner BrosJohn Williams and Danny Elfman have already put together legendary and iconic sounds to two of the world’s finest with Superman and Batman but Hans Zimmer really changed things up after his scores for the Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. The emotion or action of a scene can be made or broken with what sounds the audiences take in and that’s why scores are so important to these characters.

We as fans don’t know what certain characters are supposed to sound like but once those notes hit us in the right way, then that’s all we can think about for the rest of the movie or franchise. That’s a key part of the movie making process that gets overlooked. With that in mind, I decided to rank every DC Extended Universe film score from worst to best.
