Danai Gurira Reportedly Exiting 'The Walking Dead' In Season 10

DANAI GURIRA Leaving THE WALKING DEAD - Report Danai Gurira Is Leaving 'The Walking Dead'

In 2016, her future Black Panther co-star starred in Eclipsed, a play that starred her future Black Panther castmate Lupita Nyong'o, earned Gurira a Tony nomination for best play.

And now, a moment of silence, if you will - and not just because when AMC's The Walking Dead returns Sunday for the back half of Season 9 (9/8c), Samantha Morton's Alpha and the Whisperers will be scaring us speechless on the regular. According to sources with knowledge of the new deal, Gurira will finish out season 9 and appear in a handful of episodes in season 10 before exiting the series.

Speaking of the big screen, Danai Gurira is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having appeared in Black Panther and Infinity War.

Add to that her burgeoning playwriting career, where she has been winning awards and acclaim.

Danai Gurira, who shot to fame in 2012 when she joined the cast as the katana-wielding Michonne, is believed to have signed a deal for her last season on the show.

This would mark another big loss for the show, which has seen its ratings slip in recent seasons.

Danai Gurira is leaving AMC's The Walking Dead. The show is now in its ninth season, which returns for its second half on Sunday night.

Danai will return to appear in an nearly part-time capacity in season ten which will be her last.

No specific reason was given why she left the series, and AMC declined to comment about the news. We're thrilled for what's in store for her. "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". She's also set to star in Godzilla vs Kong in 2020.
