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.

Before she was General Okoye, the leader Wankanda's badass all-woman Army in Black Panther, Danai Gurira was Michonne on the hit series The Walking Dead.

Danai's departure was rumoured after she was engaged in "prolonged negotiations" with AMC. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it's official: Danai Gurira is leaving The Walking Dead.

The second half of season 9 of the zombie drama will begin airing on February 10.

Michonne entered the show equipped with two chained-up walkers in season three in 2012, and has been a series regular ever since.

"She has been very vocal about saying that she loves the show". During her time on the show, her star as an actor and writer has risen immensely, thanks to a high-profile role in Black Panther and a Tony nomination in 2016 for her play Eclipsed. Right now, she's got a lot of opportunities and she needs to weigh what she feels is best for her. "She is an incredibly valuable character and I'm really hoping she stays", he added.

Gurira joined AMC's horror drama in Season 3 and has become one of the show's breakout stars, rising to the second-billed spot behind Norman Reedus after Lincoln and Cohan left. "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".

Danai's star has been on the rise since starring in Black Panther a year ago, with subsequent appearances in Avengers: Infinity and Avengers: Endgame.

Michonne has always been my favorite character in the series, so it's tough to see her leave.
