Danai Gurira Is Exiting 'The Walking Dead'

Danai Gurira Is Exiting 'The Walking Dead'”

The Walking Dead is coming back for season 10, but one of your favorite characters won't be sticking around very long.

The Walking Dead was already suffering from the departure of Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes after season nine - and now many fans are describing Danai Gurira's exit as the final straw for the show.

Her exit comes after what's been reported as "prolonged negotiations" with AMC, the company who produces the show, which is broadcast in Ireland on RTÉ 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will then move on to work on the previously announced series of "Walking Dead" movies alongside Lincoln. It's not all bad news from THR, though.

Danai Gurira arrives at the premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead" 4th season at Universal CityWalk on October 3, 2013 in Universal City, California. We still don't know much about those projects, but it appears she is not completely done with Michonne yet. "She is an incredibly valuable character and I'm really hoping she stays", he added. During her time on the show, her star as an actor and writer has risen immensely, thanks to a high-profile role in Black Panther and a Tony nomination in 2016 for her play Eclipsed.

Fans of Michonne and her sword skills shouldn't despair just yet though, as Danai could be part of an upcoming Walking Dead film series. The announcement of her departure strikes another massive blow to the hit series after Andrew Lincoln left late previous year.

Gurira has recently seen her fame skyrocket after being cast in the MCU's Black Panther as General Okoye.
