The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 13

The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan Returns For Season 9 On AMC

The Walking Dead wait is over for Maggie as Lauren Cohan confirms she has a new deal for Season 9 and will be back. That’s good news for fans and the writers. After watching the Season 8 finale it would have been hard to imagine TWD moving forward without her character.

“I’m going back,” Cohan told EW late Tuesday at CinemaCon, where she appeared to support her upcoming feature, Mile 22 with Mark Wahlberg. “There’s a lot more Maggie story to tell.”

As season 8 wound down and Cohan had no contract in place beyond that she started taking meetings with other Networks. She actually signed onto a new series in case AMC didn’t come to her a=with a new deal. Luckily they did.
