Lauren Cohan signs on for The Walking Dead season 9

Lauren Cohan says she is returning to The Walking Dead as Maggie Greene

Maggie is (still!) pregnant with the late Glenn Rhee's baby, which is a story that needs to move forward in Season 9.

Lauren Cohan first announced her Walking Dead return to Entertainment Weekly, saying "I'm going back".

With Maggie being an influential part of both the show and the comic book source material, Cohan's departure could have posed a signficiant problem for The Walking Dead.

Lauren Cohan revealed she has reached an agreement with AMC to return to the zombie show while promoting her Mile 22 movie from STX Films (which had a full presentation on Tuesday night) at CinemaCon on Tuesday.


While there was no official announcement about her Season 9 contract being approved, Cohan's promise is all the confirmation that fans need.

"You know we're not allowed to tell you anything, but it's good", Cohan teased of her role in Season 9 to EW. As EW points out, The Walking Dead goes into production on Season 9 this week, and that gives Cohan about two months to work on the AMC show if Whiskey Cavalier gets picked up for the fall and through the summer if it gets picked up for midseason.

During The Walking Dead Season 8 finale, Maggie became furious with leader Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) after he made the decision to let Negan live. And it won't be long before she's back into character - Season 9 reportedly begins filming next week. Back in March, Cohan's Walking Dead co-star, Khary Payton posted a photo of the actress to his Instagram account with the caption, "Pay the woman". As talks hit an impasse, the much-sought-out actress signed on in February as the female lead opposite Scott Foley in Whiskey Cavalier, ABC's hourlong action-dramedy pilot from Bill Lawrence, Dave Hemingson and Warner Bros. TV.

It could've been that the network gave into her needs, or that the ABC pilot of Whiskey Cavalier - a Central Intelligence Agency show - didn't prove as promising as it seemed before she filmed it.
