Gurira will have the flexibility now to work on her feature film career (and appear in more MCU movies), while The Walking Dead will be able to hang on to one of its most popular characters.

Per the shocking development, Gurira will return as the katana-wielding Michonne for Season 10 in just a few episodes that will be dispersed throughout the season.

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. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Danai Gurira, who stars as Michonne in the series, will leave The Walking Dead during season 10.
