by at . Comments

With plenty more blood to be spilled on The Walking Dead Season 3, AMC has given fans an update on The Walking Dead Season 4.

New episodes will begin production in Atlanta on May 6 and, as previously reported, Scott M. Gimple will take over showrunning duties from Glen Mazzara.

“Scott has been an essential part of this show since he came aboard at the very beginning of Season 2,” said series creator Robert Kirkman in a statement. “He’s contributed to guiding this show in a substantial way that has resulted in a lot of the key scenes and storylines fans have dubbed signature moments. I am thrilled to begin work on a brand new season of The Walking Dead with Scott at the helm, and I truly believe we could be embarking on what will be the best season of this show yet.”

Gimple has penned five episodes of the series, including last year's midseason finale and this year's "Hounded" and added in his own statement:

“I’m thrilled to continue the tradition of the spectacular, cinematic, horrifying, exciting and emotional storytelling of The Walking Dead. I’m a huge fan of the comics, and started with the show on the other side of the set, as an avid viewer. Over the past two years, it’s been an incredible privilege making such great television with the best cast and crew I’ve ever worked with – I can’t wait to make some more.”
