The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira has revealed that she was a collaborator in determining Michonne’s exit in the upcoming season 10 of the long-running show.
With Gurira’s exit from the show looming ever closer, she told the Los Angeles Times, “I know nothing. But what I will say in my know-nothingness, the great thing about this show is they are very, very, fantastic at creating great structure for everyone’s story.”
“I was in a room where they have all the pictures of people who have left the show, and everyone’s exit has been so specific and really resonate in its own, very original way. And so there was no exception to that in my case, I’m very thankful for that. And I was allowed to be a collaborator. But they created a very, very, very sound structure of how Michonne exits, which I was very thankful for.”
Showrunner Angela Kang, who was tasked with managing Rick’s departure, is focused on handling Michonne’s exit with the same level of seriousness and respect.
“I think for all of us on the writing side, we take that responsibility really seriously,” Kang said at San Diego Comic-Con.
“This is a character that’s important to us, important to the fans. In the same way when we were working on an exit for Andy, we approached it with the same level of seriousness and wanting to do right by this incredible actress as well as the story. I hope we haven’t screwed it up.”
The Walking Dead season 10 is set to premiere on 6th October 2019 on AMC. What do you think of Gurira’s exit from the show? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @flickeringmyth…
