Danai Gurira leaving 'Walking Dead' next season

AMC is now working on no less than three Walking Dead feature length films, which will star Andrew Lincoln.

"She has been very vocal about saying that she loves the show", AMC programming president David Madden told The Hollywood Reporter in November.

Gurira, who springboarded her popular role in The Walking Dead to a breakout role in 2018's Black Panther, will reportedly exit the AMC show after appearing in a "handful" of episodes in season 10, which will air throughout the season. But Dwight is finally ready to return to the franchise on Fear the Walking Dead. Recently, those rumors began to pick up steam as it appeared that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would conflict with Danai Gurira's schedule on the AMC series. The Walking Dead Season 9 resumes its run this Sunday night on AMC, with eight more episodes on their way. It is likely that she will segue into the three TWD film spin-0ffs opposite Andrew Lincoln, who plays her character's love interest, Rick Grimes. Her loss will be a big blow to the show's creative plans. Right now, she's got a lot of opportunities and she needs to weigh what she feels is best for her. The announcement of her departure strikes another massive blow to the hit series after Andrew Lincoln left late past year. "But we certainly would want her on the show as long as she wants to be on it,".

The Legends will head back to Atlanta to regroup before heading out next week to play the San Diego Fleet on the road. Other startup football leagues like the USFL and XFL did fantastic ratings right away, and then those fizzled quickly.

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

The report also mentions she won't be around much.

I don't know how surprising this news is, really.
