Over the weekend, The Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple said he was "incredibly hopeful about" Cohan returning for Season 9 of the AMC series. “These things do happen in TV,” he told TV Line. “But we’re talking.” In the meantime, Cohan, one of the most popular actresses this pilot season, has signed on to co-star opposite Scott Foley on action-dramedy pilot Whiskey Cavalier, playing a fiery CIA operative opposite Foley's FBI agent. Her joining Whiskey Cavalier doesn't mean she's leaving The Walking Dead, since the pilot could still be rejected. Deadline also offers the possibility that Cohan could recur The Walking Dead for Season 9, even if she's attached to the ABC series.
