Danai Gurira is following Lauren Cohan and Andrew Lincoln’s footsteps. 

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Gurira who stars as Michonne in AMC’s The Walking Dead will depart the zombie drama in Season 10. 

According to the outlet, Gurira who joined the series in season three has signed a deal to return for her final season of the hit drama. Apparently, the star will return in a limited capacity, that is a handful of episodes throughout Season 10. 

In regards to rumors that her contact was up before Season 9 debuted, Gurira told Entertainment Weekly, “Well, I’m going to keep that one to myself. But what I do know is that we are a very close-knit family, and we love each other, we love this experience, and we all will have our own narratives about how, and where, and when [we want to leave]. But the thing we enjoy is that it’s an incredible time we are able to have and been able to have with each other.”
