Black Panther's Danai Gurira set to leave "The Walking Dead"

Black Panther's Danai Gurira set to leave

Another star of hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is expected to leave the long-running USA series after much speculation.

For the last few seasons, The Walking Dead has been haemorrhaging characters - which makes quite a lot of sense, given the dangers that are present in the post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled show.

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




She's also expected to reprise her role in the now-confirmed Black Panther 2 - and if all that wasn't enough, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has been vocal about the potential for giving Okoye and the other women of Wakanda their own starring film. We love Danai; we love that character. "But we certainly would want her on the show as long as she wants to be on it", Madden said. "We really want her to stay". It was probably only a matter of time before she left to focus on her own projects, which include writing and producing an adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's hit novel Americanah into a limited series that will reunite her with Eclipsed star Lupita Nyong'o. Both of the Rick and Michonne characters are huge focusing points of Robert Kirkman's original source material, which the show is based on. Obviously, the lesson of Andy is that the show can survive anybody's departure if need be but that's not our goal.

The Walking Dead is set to return to TV screens this weekend with another look at The Whisperers.

What's more, she's set to return as Wakanda general Okoye in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame and is now in the process of adapting the novel Americanah - by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - into a TV miniseries.
