Will Lauren Cohan [Maggie] Return to The Walking Dead Next Season?
Warning: [This story contains spoilers from the season eight finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead and the comic book series on which the show is based.]
Despite not having a contract yet to return for season nine, Lauren Cohan (or rather Maggie) lives to see another day in The Walking Dead. Lauren Cohan, who has played Maggie since season two of the Walking Dead, has been in contact negotiations with producers for months about season 9.
Due to this contract dispute, Lauren Cohan had opened her self up to potential pilots over the past few months. One of these being an action drama pilot with ABC called Whiskey Cavalier. Will Lauren Cohan [Maggie] return to the Walking Dead next season?
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the network and Whiskey producers ABC Studios were very open to allowing the actress to return to The Walking Dead as Maggie but only in a limited capacity to potentially close out Maggie’s storyline.
Cohan’s deal for Whiskey Cavalier does leave the door open for her to return to the series on a more limited basis should she and AMC close the gap and agree to a new deal.
