The Walking Dead Renewed for Ninth Season; “Serious Citation” Issued in Wake of Stuntman’s Death

March 20, 2018

AMC’s The Walking Dead has been renewed for a ninth season.



The duties of showrunner, however, will now be executed by former TWD writer Angela Kang, who replaces Scott M. Gimple as he assumes the title of chief content officer. The series resumed its eighth season on Feb. 25, following a winter-break hiatus. Season 9 is already scheduled to premiere in the fall.


All the news in TWD world hasn’t been good news, though. The show was hit with a “serious citation” earlier this year in response to the death of 33-year-old stuntman, John Bernecker, who fell from more than 20 feet while rehearsing a fight scene. “This was a tragic and terrible accident,” read a statement issued by Stalwart Films. “We take the safety of our employees extremely seriously on all of our sets and comply with—and frequently exceed—industry safety standards. We disagree with the issuance of this citation and are considering our response.” Stalwart was levied by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to pay $12,675, the maximum allowable fine.
