He will step down from running The Walking Dead spin-off Fear after its upcoming third season and then segue into a multi-year deal that will see him develop new shows for AMC and potentially other networks such as SundanceTV.
AMC Studios-produced Fear has the second-largest cable audience among adults 25-54 in the US behind its progenitor, The Walking Dead, which remains by far the top-performing series.
Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV, said Erickson had helped fear fulfil “its creative promise to expand The Walking Dead universe in a way that was totally unique from the original series”.
Erickson has previously worked on series such as Marco Polo, Sons of Anarchy and Canterbury’s Law.
