    THR: Is 'The Walking Dead' Mulling a Lauren Cohan-Led Spinoff?

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/li...pinoff-1183040


    Could AMC develop a Walking Dead spinoff around Lauren Cohan's Maggie? To hear the actress tell it, that remains a possibility.

    "There may have been some conversations but everything is so early days ambiguous. Me, as much as anybody, we'll have to see what happens," Cohan told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, where she appeared to support her ABC midseason dramedy Whiskey Cavalier.

    Cohan famously parted ways with the AMC zombie drama following a months-long contract negotiation. The new pact saw Cohan to return to Walking Dead in a limited capacity for season nine. Her last episode aired Nov. 4 when the series spun-off leading man Andrew Lincoln (Rick) into a series of three TV movies.

    "I don't even think that it was bad," Cohan says of her contract talks with AMC that led to her decision to leave the series where she had been one of its female leads since season two. "It was like, I've done the show for a long time. It was a long time to be in any character and sometimes you just get quiet and listen to your inner-guidance and it's time to multitask."

    I'd much rather her return to the main show and just be more heavily featured.

    I mean, a spinoff would guarantee her more screen time but all of her history is on TWD. 8 seasons of character development and the death of her entire family. All of the important Maggie stuff happened on TWD so she should be there. It's not like Dwight where he was around for a minute or Morgan where we missed a lot of his story. She's been part of the show since pretty much the start. Episode 8 I believe. She has traveled with this group since pretty much day 1 or only a few months after day 1. She knew a lot of the important characters from that past from Shane to Dale to Lori to T-Dog to Andrea to The Governor and so on. She knew basically everyone that wasn't Jim, Amy, Jacqui, Jenner and Sophia (well, I guess she kinda met Sophia). She's like the group's historian because Carol, Daryl and Michonne are not the type of characters to talk about the past.

    And I'm pretty sure if she returns to the show they'll finally actually do something with her because lets face it. The cast has gotten pretty thin. Especially when looking at the important characters and Kang I think likes Maggie a lot more than Gimple did and selfishly I just want Maggie back because I don't really have a safe character on the show that I like anymore. Eugene, Tara and Rosita are not safe at all and could be killed off at any episode. Maggie was mostly safe though. And even though Rick & Coral weren't my favorite characters I was still heavily invested in their story because I assumed they'd be there till the end but they aren't there anymore. Maggie still has a chance to be there and would make me enjoy the show a whole lot more.

    And let's face it, TWD doesn't exactly have a lot of life left in it. The first things that go will be the spinoffs. Fear made a whole lot of sense at the time it was created because TWD was still at it's peak but a Maggie series would last, what, 2 seasons before everything starts going to shit? and on top of that I just don't want to watch a third Walking Dead series especially seeing how poorly Fear has been handled. Do you really want to see Walking Dead every single sunday of the year split between 3 different shows? That's too much and you know for a fact that Gimple would be in charge of it before he hands it off to his little minions.

    I wouldn't want a Maggie spin off, but I would really like for her to come back to the show. Where her character could go was just getting really interesting and she had become a strong character thru her whole story that we saw her struggle through.

    I would rather see her return to "TWD" than star in a new spin-off. They need to focus on the main show.

    I love her on the show, but a spin-off? I dont think shes interesting enough as a character for a spin-off. But if it happens, Ill watch it.

    Apparently Whiskey Cavalier isn't doing so well. It's not getting horrific ratings but it's getting the "could go either way" ratings. Which is bad in a show's first season I would think to not only be getting low-ish ratings but to not be showing any growth either. Like every week has been lower than the week before and it's only aired 5 episodes so far. If IMDB is correct there is still 8 episodes of the season so it could get really bad.

    Her returning to TWD doesn't sound as crazy as it may have when this show first got announced but even if it gets canceled I wonder how she would fit in to Season 10 which should start shooting in a few months. I just wonder how the schedules would work out even if it got canceled because there is a lot of pre-production that goes in to shows. They'd have to know ahead of time if she'll be available to return because it's not like her return can be just a "Oh hi, Maggie" type of thing where suddenly the character starts getting screen time like they've done with Negan for example when JDM had to film a movie because Negan wasn't written off. He just wasn't shown. They actually wrote Maggie off so it'd have to be a much bigger deal for her return. Like at least a episode or even several episodes dedicated to it so it's not really something you can decide last second.

    But who knows, maybe Lauren has enjoyed the time away from Walking Dead and would rather just return to be killed off so she can film more movies or something. Or maybe a cancellation of Whiskey Cavalier would make her want to go back to Walking Dead even more because it's a guaranteed gig. Only time will tell. Whiskey Cavalier has to actually be canceled first but if it continues to bleed viewers over the next 8 episodes then it's not looking good.
