But following the departure of Andrew Lincoln, who played the lead character Rick Grimes from the show's beginning, fans must be starting to wonder where the neighbourhood is gone.

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. The show is now in its ninth season, which returns for its second half on Sunday night. Two of the stars that have departed, Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan, will appearing in spin-offs of the show.


"She has been very vocal about saying that she loves the show".

Gurira has been in the role since season three, but is expected to appear in only a "handful of episodes" next season before she departs.


No specific reason was given why she left the series, and AMC declined to comment about the news. Right now, she's got a lot of opportunities and she needs to weigh what she feels is best for her.

Considering Michonne became largely the show's central character in the wake of Rick's departure, and as a major player in the original comics, it'll be a massive challenge for the show to continues beyond season 10. "But we certainly would want her on the show as long as she wants to be on it", Madden said. But Dwight is finally ready to return to the franchise on Fear the Walking Dead. "We really want her to stay". It is believed that she will also be present in the highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters in April. She is an incredibly valuable character and I'm really hoping she stays.
