Season 10 of The Walking Dead is likely to be Danai Gurira’s last.
The Hollywood Reporter was first to report that Gurira, who joined AMC’s zombie drama is Season 3, will most likely exit the show in Season 10. The outlet further reports that Gurira aka Michonne has signed a deal to return for her final season of the hit drama. Her return, however, will be in a limited capacity, starring in a handful of episodes throughout Season 10.
Gurira’s exit will follow Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan both left the series earlier in Season 9. Lincoln will, however, star in the series of The Walking Dead TV movies, productions that Gurira is likely to join.
“It’s not the beginning of the end, it’s the end of the beginning,” said Lincoln in a statement at the time. “And I like the idea that we get to tell a bigger story, maybe with a sort of wider vista. And I’ve always been interested in what’s going on out there, you know, whether or not there is contact with the wider world. I want to know the meta of it all. And I suppose to be able to kind of touch upon that in a contained story for me is a very exciting proposition… Maybe it’s the start of a bigger story.”
Gurira’s other credits include last year’s Black Panther. She also a Tony-nominated playwright.
The Walking Dead returns Sunday on AMC.
