Lauren Cohan joins 'Whiskey Cavalier' pilot at ABC, eyes 'Walking Dead' exit

The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan to star in ABC pilot Whiskey Cavalier

Now, the outlet notes that this is just a pilot and even if it does move forward, the actress still has the opportunity to return to The Walking Dead on a "recurring basis". But not because the character's weak.

Now it's been announced that Cohan has indeed landed a new pilot deal; she'll be starring in a pilot called Whiskey Cavalier for ABC.

Lauren Cohan's been a fixture on The Walking Dead since making her debut as Maggie during the show's second season. Though Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Norman Reedus (Daryl) has already inked theirs, assuring their characters' safety at least through the first episode of next season, Cohan had some issues with hers.

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

It is understood that AMC offered Cohan a "modest" salary increase and a longer contract instead, which she rejected. Her potential exit would leave many questions unanswered about her current storyline which finds her becoming a potential leader of the group and also pregnant with her and Glenn's (Steven Yeun) child.

Will Smith has heaped praise on the Black Panther cast, saying they have potentially shattered Hollywood stereotypes. Get Out is ranked fifth, Call Me By Your Name is in sixth, and Paddington 2 is in eighth.

The Walking Dead officially has a major Maggie problem: After weeks of speculation, Lauren Cohan has indeed attached herself to a new TV project - in this case, the Bill Lawrence-produced ABC action-dramedy pilot Whiskey Cavalier. But maybe we all let out that breath a little too soon. These things do happen in TV.

"Lauren is an actor who has such intuition and such power. So yeah, hopefully, it all works out".

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).

Odds of survival for Maggie on The Walking Dead don't seem great considering, as Uproxx pointed out, the network has a history of taking a more aggressive stance during lawsuits and negotiations.
