The next season of Fear the Walking Dead will mark the end of Dave Erickson’s time with the franchise, as the showrunner will leave the hit AMC series at the conclusion of Season 3.
According to the network’s announcement, as reported by TV Guide, Erickson will work on new projects for AMC following his departure from Fear the Walking Dead. A new showrunner to fill the void left by Erickson’s impending departure has yet to be announced.
“We’re beyond grateful for Dave’s amazing work on the first three seasons of Fear the Walking Dead,” AMC and Sundance TV president of original programming Joel Stillerman said. “We are also incredibly excited that Dave has chosen to stay in the AMC family to pursue his next passion project. We look forward to many more successful collaborations.”
