Walking Dead Working On Bringing Back Lauren Cohan | ScreenRant
The Walking Dead is working to carry again Maggie actress Lauren Cohan, says the collection’ showrunner, Angela Kang. Cohan’s character Maggie Greene first joined the AMC zombie collection in season 2, and stayed with the present by way of the start of season 9 earlier than being written out as Cohan left to headline the ABC spy collection Whiskey Cavalier. ABC has since elected to cancel Whiskey Cavalier, and the present is not going to be again regardless of fan efforts to maintain it alive.
Over the course of her time on The Walking Dead, Cohan’s Maggie advanced right into a management position within the forged, and in addition suffered unimaginable trauma as she witnessed the brutal homicide of her husband Glenn by the hands of Negan. By season 9, Maggie had turn out to be head of the story’s Hilltop community, whereas additionally elevating her little one, Hershel. Maggie’s exit from the collection got here as a serious shake-up, because it occurred together with the departure of very long time lead character Rick Grimes, however the door was left open for Maggie to return as she was not killed off, however as an alternative left to assist the mysterious character Georgie in some unknown different group.
Now, it seems just like the door is large open for Cohan to return to The Walking Dead if she so wishes. In an interview with EW, Kang revealed that efforts are being made to rearrange a reunion between the franchise and the actress. “I’m undecided if I can say a lot about it proper now truly,” Kang mentioned. “I’ll simply say that we’re engaged on it.”
Kang supplied no particulars past her temporary feedback, so it is not identified precisely what the plans can be for Maggie’s return, if a return is certainly within the offing. It’s potential Maggie may come again to the primary present for season 10, although such a transfer may be sophisticated as season 10 is already in manufacturing and presumably has already been deliberate out (although plans can at all times be altered, and if want be, time jumps can at all times be executed so as to recover from story obstacles). A seemingly extra possible chance is that Maggie would come again in one of many Rick-centered Walking Dead movies being deliberate. The Walking Dead can be branching out into a 3rd collection, casting for which has already begun, so there’s additionally an opportunity Maggie may one way or the other be fitted into that story.
As of now, within the timeline of The Walking Dead, the character remains to be off serving to Georgie after Maggie’s rather abrupt (and frankly badly handled) exit from the present. A return to the main show for Maggie can be welcome for followers who’re nonetheless getting over the departure of Rick, and are about to obtain one other main blow as Danai Gurira’s Michonne can be set to exit. But it may additionally be intriguing to see Maggie one way or the other find yourself reuniting with Rick in one of many films, maybe with Michonne additionally alongside for the journey. If AMC needs to get their new showcase to a superb begin, they may elect to work Maggie into it, and have her act as mentor to the collection’ reported younger feminine protagonists. With so many Walking Dead properties both up and operating or within the planning levels, the chances are nearly countless.
