THE WALKING DEAD, AMC
In an interview today with The Hollywood Reporter, Glen Mazzara, The Walking Dead showrunner who recently announced that he would be departing the AMC series, opened up about his decision to leave.
"It was really about moving forward," Mazzara tells the site on his departure. "As we were looking at bringing the story forward into season four it was clear that AMC and I were moving in different directions. We came to a mutual decision to part ways. It was a difficult decision because we're all proud of the work we've done together. It was for the best direction of the show and I'm happy with work I've done and I'm excited to develop my own stuff. My vision for the show is on the screen."
