DANAI GURIRA Leaving THE WALKING DEAD

  • The Walking Dead issue 143 screen grab

AMC is now working on no less than three Walking Dead feature length films, which will star Andrew Lincoln.

Lincoln's departure was compounded on Friday night when it was announced that the show's next season - Season 10 - will be the final one for Danai Gurira.

AMC programming president David Madden spoke with The Hollywood Reporter back in November regarding Gurira's future with the series.

Deadline said Gurira, who has played Michonne since Season 3, has signed on to appear in a handful of episodes in Season 10. It also gives Scott Gimple, the architect of The Walking Dead universe, another challenge: Finding a way to reunite Rick and Michonne without disturbing the television show.


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

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

This is largely as a result of the success of Marvel film Black Panther, where Danai played Dora Milaje general Okoye. It's time once again to reflect upon the characters that we've loved - OK, in some cases, at best kinda put up with - and lost. The announcement of her departure strikes another massive blow to the hit series after Andrew Lincoln left late previous year. "We really want her to stay. The goal is to have Danai continue on whatever basis she can make work, given the other things that she has going on in her life".
