The Walking Dead fandom is still reeling from the news that Scott Gimple, who has been The Walking Dead’s showrunner for the last several years, is moving up. He will be overseeing both The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead.
Angela Kang was named the new showrunner of The Walking Dead replacing Scott Gimple. Kang’s promotion to showrunner is something most fans are really excited about. She’s been writing for The Walking Dead since 2011. And she’s written and co-written some of the most memorable episodes of the show.
The episodes that Kang has written share some characteristics. She is excellent at writing the subtle but often complicated relationships between the core characters. And she has a great grasp of each character’s personality and the journey that the character has been on since the farm.
Since she’s been writing for these beloved characters since Hershel’s farm fans are hoping that she will be able to restore the sense of heart and hope that was a hallmark of the early seasons. Some fans have felt that the last couple of seasons have been lacking the sense of family and connection that make up the heart of the show.
Let’s take a look at ten of the best episodes of The Walking Dead that Angela Kang has written over the years to see what she will bring to the show in her new role as showrunner.
