Rebecca, who played Ruby Buckton on the show, has not revealed the reason for her departure, other than hinting that it’s related to her contract.
"It's a contract thing, so I can't discuss that," Rebecca told TV Week.
But she does confirm her character won’t be killed off in upcoming episodes, saying that there is a possibility Ruby will return in the future.
"Ruby is still very much alive. I'm not free of Ruby yet," she said.
So that rules out our predicted zombie apocalypse plotline?
Rebecca’s character Ruby is currently in a love-triangle with Romeo (played by fiancé Luke) and his ex-wife Indi (played by Samara Weaving).
