The actress has been battling AMC on a contract to return to The Walking Dead for Season 9, but as time runs out (filming begins in May) and no deal in sight, at last publicly, Cohan began entertaining outside offers and said yes to the Scott Foley-led action dramedy.
Whiskey Cavalier follows FBI agent Will Chase, codename Whiskey Cavalier (Foley) who, following an emotional break-up, is assigned to work with CIA operative Francesca Trowbridge, codename Fiery Tribune (Cohan). Together, they lead an inter-agency team of spies who periodically save the world and each other while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.
Of course, the ABC project is at the pilot stage and doesn’t mean this is the end for The Walking Dead‘s Maggie. If the show goes to series, Cohan could still potentially recur on the AMC zombie drama, perhaps to wrap up Maggie’s storylines. She could also work out a deal with AMC and return to TWD full time should the ABC project not go to series, or both projects could fall apart, leaving her open for other opportunities.
Cohan is represented by CAA and John Carrabino Management.
