Will THE WALKING DEAD Recast Maggie? Lauren Cohan Signs Up For A New ABC Pilot

It was previously reported that Lauren Cohan's Walking Dead is up after season 8 and that she was considering leaving the show after learning Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln earned significantly more.

The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan appears set to carry out threats to leave her co-starring role on the AMC zombie drama.  The actress was very unhappy to learn that Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus had significantly higher salaries and request comparable pay during her season 9 contract negotiations with the network.  It seems she must have been unsatisfied with what AMC offered as Cohan has now booked a role on an ABC drama pilot opposite Scott Foley.  

Cohan has been negotiating with AMC for months and news of her potential exit have circulated for weeks but this latest development is a signal that Cohan's willing to do more than just talk.  Variety reports that Cohan could possible still occur on a semi-regular basis on The Walking Dead if her ABC pilot receives a series order, however, it's also possible that she simple exits the show. 

Should that happen, do you think AMC will write her character off or recast the role.  Though Maggie plays an important role in the ongoing Robert Kirkman comic, the show has shown a willingness in the past to stray from the source material.

Stay tuned for further updates.
