Ah, The Walking Dead. While its ratings are nowhere near what they used to be, it’s still one of the most watched shows on cable, so it’s no wonder that AMC doesn’t want to let this particular cash cow die. They’re even launching a third show soon.
Regardless of what happens with that upcoming second spinoff though, The Walking Dead’s flagship program doesn’t look set to go anywhere anytime soon, especially with a planned trilogy of theatrical films starring Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes on the way.
The Walking Dead season 9 ended up pretty eventful, with multiple time jumps, Rick bring written out of the story, and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) exiting the proceedings after a botched attempt to kill Negan, the man who brutally offed her husband Glenn.
As reported by Deadline though, not only is Cohan’s Maggie on her way back, The Walking Dead itself has been renewed for season 11. This comes ahead of this Sunday’s season 10 premiere, and out of the show’s panel at New York Comic Con.
Unclear at the moment is when Cohan, whose ABC show Whiskey Cavalier quickly fizzled out, will be back onscreen. If she won’t be back until season 11, Maggie fans have a year wait ahead of them. One wonders if she’ll take another shot at Negan.
