Fans have known for a while that Season 10 of The Walking Dead would probably be Danai Gurira’s last as Michonne, but the star confirmed it once and for all at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.
“I would just like to say that this has been one of the purest joys of my life to play this role and to be amongst these people and those who are not here right now and amongst all of you,” Gurira said, per The Hollywood Reporter. “My heart does not leave in any way, shape or form. The TWD family is forever.”
Now, people on Twitter are saying their farewells to Michonne, though the character will still appear in several Season 10 episodes. There’s also lots of chatter about two interesting moments in the Season 10 trailer: Michonne kissing Ezekiel and Michonne wielding Lucille, Negan’s bat.
