Many figured after the success of Black Panther that Danai Gurira's time on The Walking Deadwould be limited. The actress confirmed the rumors that she was departing after Season 10 during the show's San Diego Comic-Con panel in Hall H on Friday afternoon, delivering an emotional goodbye speech and getting a standing ovation afterward.
Shortly after the panel, TV Guide talked to a few of Gurira's castmates, including fan-favorite Cailey Fleming, and asked them to tell Gurira, and The Walking Dead fans, what having her on the show has meant to them. Maybe get some tissues ready because it is all heartfelt goo from this point forward.
The Walking Dead Season 10 premieres Sunday, Oct. 6 at 9/8c on AMC.
