Robert Kirkman has been expanding his horizons with Cinemax's Outcast and by joining the Transformers writer's room, but AMC isn't prepared to let The Walking Dead creator out of their sights.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, AMC has inked Kirkman to "a rich, multiyear deal" in which he'll "develop new projects and continue to serve as executive producer on the zombie drama."
"Robert Kirkman is a remarkable creative talent, a partner and a friend," AMC and SundanceTV president Charlie Collier told THR. "We at AMC feel so fortunate to be working with him in-house and — beginning this summer, among other shared endeavors — extending our fight against the zombie masses to another major metropolitan area."
This new overall deal will not interfere with Kirkman's latest comic-to-TV adaptation, Cinemax's Outcast.
Fear The Walking Dead premieres this summer on AMC, The Walking Dead returns for its sixth season in October.
