Danai Gurira Is Leaving 'The Walking Dead'

Introduced in Season 2 of The Walking Dead, Michonne, known for her badass sword and dreads, proved to be an invaluable ally to Rick and his band of surviving humans. The second half of The Walking Dead Season 9 starts Sunday, following news that series star Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne, will leave the Walking Dead flagship show after briefly appearing in a smattering of Season 10 episodes.

Under her new deal, Gurira will return in a limited capacity - described as only a handful of episodes - that will be interspersed throughout season 10.

The Walking Dead continues on AMC Sundays and returns Mondays on Fox UK.

Danai's departure was rumoured after she was engaged in "prolonged negotiations" with AMC.

Another star of hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is expected to leave the long-running USA series after much speculation. The actress, playwright and social activist will then likely segue to the three Walking Dead movies that AMC is planning with former leading man Andrew Lincoln. The show is now in its ninth season, which returns for its second half on Sunday night.

"She has been very vocal about saying that she loves the show".

AMC and representatives for Gurira declined comment. Right now, she's got a lot of opportunities and she needs to weigh what she feels is best for her. "But we certainly would want her on the show as long as she wants to be on it,". "She is an incredibly valuable character and I'm really hoping she stays", he added. She also played a noticeable part in Avengers: Infinity War and is set to star in this year's follow-up, Endgame.
