    I love her, and am definitely over-the-moon glad for her, but I don't want to lose Sasha on TWD. Boohoo, that is going to suck. But, congratulations to Sonequa. She deserves good things. Good for her!

    I just saw this elsewhere and came here to voice my displeasure. Dammit. Ugh. Why? I'm glad Sonequa's (probably) going on to bigger things for her career. I'll miss Sasha, if this means she's leaving the show. I have always loved Star Trek--the only one I didn't like was Enterprise--so I'll be seeing her on the new show. I don't know if anything I'm saying is considered a spoiler so that's why my wording is how it is.

    It's also kind of sad too, because this confirms
    According to the character episode guide in the Spoilers section, :(Sasha is suppose to die in episode 716.T_T

    Yes SMG and Danai getting that franchise money.

    But I hope they don't kill her. Maybe she will get the heath treatment.

    The new Star Trek is for one year per story. It features different stories like American Horror Stories, True Detective and American Crime. So Sonequa is only signed for 1 year of that. Each year will be a different crew from different era.

    My prediction

    Thanks for this. Good to know. I really like SMG and would love to see her thrive in a leading role, but if the plan is for her to only carry the show for one season, I see no reason why she'd have to leave TWD. Fingers crossed plans are in place for her to continue to have story on TWD, but if the new Star Trek gig decides to keep her for longer, more power to her.

    I'm so happy for SMG! Kind of bummed it's an anthology and it's on 'CBS All Access' but happy it's a leading role on a legendary series. She's going to do great.

    My whole spirit is broken... let me get all my fanfic Sashonne in now. I'm just gonna live in denial like Beth fans lol (tho apparently there might be hope for Sasha if it's a 1 yr contract).

    But other than THAT:

    Congrats Sonequa Martin-Green. I'm a trekkie and its going to be awesome seeing her in a leading role in this franchise. I'm hoping they don't kill off Sasha though. She is one of my favorite characters on TWD. But if they do kill off Sasha, I want her to go down in a blaze of Glory. NO HOLLY ARC. I want her to get killed saving TF and with her shooting her rifle and guns in a badass assassin type way, then she would have a nice goodbye conversation with Maggie and Michonne, then either Maggie or Michonne kills her before she turns but after she dies(like Tyrese did with Bob--killing him in the space in between his death and before he turned).

    I could see that happening with Sasha.

    Okay, I had no clue about this. Hmm, Sonequa could stay on TWD then.

    Exactly!

    AMC needs to do whatever it takes to keep her, get her to stay. Pay her more money, write some super terrific material for her, let her move forward as a character. She is so very talented. I think the show needs her. There is something about her presence that elevates the show...I can't put my finger on it or articulate it, but there is a certain something where Sasha is concerned. Im'ma have to think about it some, but it is better for the show that she be able to stay. They ought to be willing, work something out, if she is willing. I sure hope they do.

    Congrats to Sonequa. The TWD cast is a talented bunch and I love seeing them getting more work.

    I'm really happy she has found work elsewhere but this doesn't look good for Sasha.

    I'm very happy for Sonequa but while they claim she'll be in both projects it'll make Sasha more dispensable. I love my TF the way it is. Some may irk the crap outta me but like Rick ... I can't lose nobody else.
