Entertainment Weekly reports that Lauren Cohan has signed on for a lead role in ABC’s drama pilot Whiskey Cavalier, which puts her status for season nine of The Walking Dead in question. Cohan, who plays Maggie Green on the series, has not signed on for the ninth season yet, although executive producer Scott Gimple said he hoped she would re-sign.

The pilot follows Frankie Trowbridge (Cohan), a CIA operative who has to work with FBI agent Will Chase (Scott Foley), code name Whiskey Cavalier.

It’s unknown what this means for Maggie on the show. Season eight could be the last for the character, or she could be back in a limited role in season nine. It’s also possible that she comes back as a series regular if Whiskey Cavalier is picked up for midseason in 2019, or not picked up at all. The series returns on February 25 on AMC.
