Danai Gurira Leaving The Walking Dead

'The Walking Dead': Danai Gurira Leaving as Michonne in Season 10

DANAI GURIRA Leaving THE WALKING DEAD - Report

According to the report, the "Black Panther" star and playwright will pop up in what they're calling "a limited capacity - described as only a handful of episodes" for her final season.

Recently, those rumors began to pick up steam as it appeared that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would conflict with Danai Gurira's schedule on the AMC series. "But we certainly would want her on the show as long as she wants to be on it", AMC Programming President David Madden told THR back in November.

Danai Gurira will reportedly exit "The Walking Dead" after Season 10, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Michonne entered the show equipped with two chained-up walkers in season three in 2012, and has been a series regular ever since.

Her exit would be a massive blow for the show, following the recent departure of Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes in season nine - who will reappear in a planned trilogy of movies.

"She has been very vocal about saying that she loves the show". "We really want her to stay".

Season 9 of The Walking Dead resumes Sunday, Feb. 10 at 9/8c on AMC. It's imagined that Gurira will spend more time on Broadway, writing and starring in projects, in addition to her continued work on The Walking Dead and future big screen projects. "She is an incredibly valuable character and I'm really hoping she stays", he added. She's definitely going to be in Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther 2, and she'll probably be a bunch of other major movies in the near future.

No specific reason was given why she left the series, and AMC declined to comment about the news.
