Yumiko has ‘confirmed’ that she will take on Michonne’s comic storyline after a promo hint.
Following the departure of one of the series’ main protagonists, THE WALKING DEAD season 11 could make big changes to the original comic book storyline.
A new trailer for the upcoming season of The Walking Dead takes viewers back to the show’s humble origins in 2010. The new season 11 video of AMC’s zombie epic tipped fans off to a significant storyline when it was published on Instagram, along with powerful remarks from former lead Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln).
Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura) is poised to play a big role in the long-running zombie drama The Walking Dead’s final episode.
Although the flagship series on AMC will eventually come to an end, the story will be continued through a variety of spin-offs and an upcoming film trilogy.
Originally based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book series, the TV version has deviated from the source material several times throughout the years.
Last year’s departure of Michonne (Danai Gurira) after ten seasons was one of the most significant shifts.
Michonne is a key character in the original comic book series till the very last issue.
The survivors finally discover the Commonwealth, a massive post-apocalyptic community that will serve as the foundation for TWD season 11.
However, as Michonne is no longer around to finish her comic counterpart’s journey, Yumiko, a fellow survivor, is expected to step in.
Fans immediately recognized the character as wearing the Commonwealth’s soldiers’ trademark white uniform.
Yumiko is expected to carry on Michonne’s plot in the TV series, as she infiltrates the city in search of her missing daughter, as seen in the comics.
When one of the viewers saw the revealing clue in the new teaser, they posted the hypothesis on Twitter.
“Wow,” they exclaimed. Yumiko, dressed in Commonwealth garb, stands in front of the lost wall.
“It appears she is reading Michonne’s comic arc.”

As the TV versions of Michonne and Yumiko departed from their original trajectories in the books, some viewers have already noticed certain similarities between the two characters.
Others have pointed out that Michonne has already had several arcs in the series that did not appear in Kirkman’s comics, which may contradict the Commonwealth storyline.
Michonne isn’t likely to return to the franchise until the future Rick and Morty flicks. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
