Lauren Cohan Books ABC Pilot "Whiskey Cavalier" Amid "Walking Dead" Exit Rumors

Lauren Cohan's New Gig Spells Bad News for Maggie on The Walking Dead

Moving on? Lauren Cohan may be ready to take her final bow on The Walking Dead.

Lauren has reportedly been highly in-demand this pilot season as she weighs her future in the zombie apocalypse.

The English/American talent, 36, just landed a leading role on the ABC pilot Whiskey Cavalier and has yet to lock down a contract for TWD season nine, strongly suggesting the star might not return to the post-apocalyptic series.

As previously reported, Cohan - whose Walking Dead contract expires at the end of the AMC thriller's current eighth season - had been fielding numerous pilot offers.

And it seems her exit from the show could now have been confirmed, as Lauren has joined the cast of a new ABC show.

We warned you when we gathered everything we knew about The Walking Dead season 8 episode 9: It's looking more and more like the end for Maggie on The Walking Dead.

About two weeks ago, negotiations with actress Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Rhee on the show, hit a snag. But we do absolutely know how lucky we have been to be a part of it all and appreciate all the love from fans all these years!' So yeah, hopefully, it all works out, ' the TV creator added.

Although Gimple remains positive, his response hasn't been exactly inspirational, especially with a network that has played hardball in the past and is now facing two lawsuits over royalties from The Walking Dead (plus an additional lawsuit over a stuntman's death).

With so many lead characters now out of the mix, Cohan's loss would certainly be felt on The Walking Dead.

The move by Cohan and company might be a bold power play to up AMC's offers for the actress' next contract. Fans will have to wait to see how the rest of season eight unfolds to find out whether or not Maggie will be making it to season nine - but, quite frankly, things do not look good right now. The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, February 25 at 9/8c.
