There has been wild speculation as to why Frank Darabont left his post as showrunner on the popular AMC zombie series 'The Walking Dead'. But it seems things aren't quite as we initially thought as the Hollywood Reporter is claiming that AMC had in fact fired Darabont! Recently, 'number 2' Glen Mazzara took over to lead the second season in preparation for its October release. Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Michael Rooker ('Slither'), Norman Reedus, Jeffrey DeMunn, Laurie Holden ('Silent Hill'), Steven Yeun and Sarah Wayne Callies ('Prison Break') all return to the shuffling series. Check out more on the subject below.

Here's the interesting extract from the Hollywood Reporter:

"What remains a central mystery, even to those closely involved, is what triggered AMC's move to fire Darabont. As noted, AMC's decision to cut the budget dated to the previous fall, when the network instructed Darabont to produce 13 episodes for a second season, up from six for the first season, for less money. Not only would the show get a lower budget, but AMC also decided that Walking Dead would no longer reap the benefit of a 30 percent tax credit per episode that came with filming in Georgia. Now the network was going to hold on to that money."

The new season of 'The Walking Dead' is set to kick of on US screens on 16 October.
