Lauren Cohan Returns To “Walking Dead”

After some big questions over whether she will return, Lauren Cohan has confirmed she will be returning to the role of Maggie Green in AMC’s “The Walking Dead” for its upcoming ninth season.

Cohan, who was at CinemaCon to promote “Mile 22” with Mark Wahlberg, was asked about her status with the show by EW and revealed she’s back: “I’m going back. There’s a lot more Maggie story to tell.”

Cohan’s return was uncertain as she scored the co-lead in the ABC pilot “Whiskey Cavalier” recently, and there’s no news if that project has gone to series as yet. Filming on the ninth season begins next week.

Co-stars Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus have already signed on to return for a ninth season.
