The Walking Dead continues on AMC Sundays and returns Mondays on Fox UK.

Danai Gurira is reportedly preparing to leave "The Walking Dead" television series. According to sources with knowledge of the new deal, Gurira will finish out season 9 and appear in a handful of episodes in season 10 before exiting the series.

Danai plays Michonne on the show, and the actress has since appeared in films like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.

Add to that her burgeoning playwriting career, where she has been winning awards and acclaim.

This would mark another big loss for the show, which has seen its ratings slip in recent seasons. Rather, Gurira will return for the tenth season in a limited capacity.

However, the fan's joy of the show returning will be short-lived since it's just been announced that one its star, Danai Gurira will be leaving at the end of this season. The show is now in its ninth season, which returns for its second half on Sunday night.

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.

"She has been very vocal about saying that she loves the show". It's time once again to reflect upon the characters that we've loved - OK, in some cases, at best kinda put up with - and lost.

"We really want her to stay", he said. "We really want her to stay". Obviously, the lesson of Andy is that the show can survive anybody's departure if need be but that's not our goal. After that, her character will leave the post-apocalyptic series forever.

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