Now that The Strolling Lifeless season eight is formally within the books, it’s time to look ahead… to season 9. There’s an issue, although: one of many present’s greatest stars, Lauren Cohan, presently doesn’t have a contract. It’s onerous to think about The Strolling Lifeless persevering with with out Maggie Greene, particularly after the season eight finale. After Rick lets Negan, who smashed her husband’s head in with a baseball bat, stay, Maggie tells Daryl (who was humiliated by the Saviors) and Jesus, “Rick was flawed to do what he did. Michonne, too. So we’re gonna bide our time, look ahead to our second, after which we’re gonna present him.”
Maggie received’t have the ability to present him if she’s not on the present, although.
Cohan (whose distressed response to Rick’s let-him-live determination was the very best a part of the episode) nabbed the lead position within the ABC pilot Whiskey Cavalier, which, coupled together with her lack of contract, may make fulfilling her Strolling Lifeless duties tough. However in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, chief content material officer Scott M. Gimple, who disclosed that he can’t “entertain the thought” of the actress not being again, sounded optimistic about Maggie returning.
“I’d think about comparatively quickly,” he stated about Cohan’s contract being signed. “We’re speaking: dotting i’s, crossing t’s, that kind of factor. However no actual information on it simply but… We’re nonetheless speaking about sure facets of it. However we all know what we’re doing, given the parameters beneath which we’re working. There’s a large chance of parameters.” As for whether or not the present would ever recast Maggie, “Oh, lord. Lauren Cohan is Maggie. We’re speaking about these items now. That isn’t one thing we’re discussing. We’re figuring it out. That isn’t actually on the desk.”
As soon as the off-screen drama ends, the on-screen Rick vs. Maggie motion begins.
