During a surprise appearance at New York Comic Con 2019, Lauren Cohen revealed that she’ll be returning to play fan-favourite Maggie in The Walking Dead, which has just been renewed for an eleventh season.
Maggie was last seen in the ninth season and will return as a series regular for the eleventh season. Season 10 is currently airing.
“The Walking Dead burst out of the gate ten years ago as a genre show that had all the character depth of a top-tier prestige drama,” said Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, in a recent statement. “And now ten years later—led by the brilliant Angela Kang and fueled by one of the most consistently talented casts in television—this phenomenon is flourishing creatively, with critics and audiences embracing its reset. We’re delighted to welcome back Lauren Cohan, she has meant so much to this show and its passionate, global fanbase, who are in for a fantastic ride over the coming months.”
