Maggie's Gone on 'The Walking Dead' But Lauren Cohan's Still Kicking Ass on TV

By Amber Garrett

Fans of The Walking Dead have endured a double blow this season with the departures of Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes and Lauren Cohan as Maggie Greene. However, while the end Rick's time on the series (in order to launch a big-screen trilogy of his own) was heavily publicized leading up to the start of the season, the departure of Maggie was given far less fanfare.

And with the debut of her new ABC show, Whiskey Cavalier, fans worry the farmer's daughter is gone for good.

So will Maggie be returning to The Walking Dead this season?

Turns out the reason Lauren's exit was less amicable than Andrew's is a dispute over equal pay. Reportedly, Lauren lost a battle with show execs to earn the same paycheck as fellow series regular Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus. While her character isn't dead, it's unlikely we'll see Maggie again unless she and the honchos of the AMC series make up.
