The Walking Dead confirmed for season 4; Showrunner quits

AMC has renewed the growing zombie apocalypse drama The Walking Dead for a fourth season. In addition to this news, AMC released that showrunner Glen Mazzara has parted ways with the show and the network due to "differences in opinion." Mazzara will remain as showrunner for the second half of the third season set to return in January, but after that we will no longer have him.

I don't understand this. They booted Frank Darabont out after a season and a half and now they have done the same with Glen Mazzara. Ratings have been booming, they have broken cable television records, and the show's popularity consistently is growing. There are several sources out there calling for Robert Kirkman, the writer of the original comic material, to step in as showrunner. He has been on board since season one and has been on as a producer. I would agree that he would probably know best at this point.
