Moreover, it was confirmed today that Lauren Cohan will return as Maggie for Season 11 as a series regular.

"The Walking Dead burst out of the gate ten years ago as a genre show that had all the character depth of a top-tier prestige drama," said Sarah Barnett, President, AMC Networks Entertainment Group. "And now 10 years later - led by the brilliant Angela Kang and fueled by one of the most consistently talented casts in television - this phenomenon is flourishing creatively, with critics and audiences embracing its reset. We're delighted to welcome back Lauren Cohan, she has meant so much to this show and its passionate, global fanbase, who are in for a fantastic ride over the coming months."
