Lauren Cohan returning to The Walking Dead in season 11 as series regular

Just like the undead, The Walking Dead will return!

AMC’s hit zombie drama has been renewed for season 11. The early renewal news, announced at New York Comic Con on Saturday, comes just one day before the season 10 premiere debuts. But that’s not all! Former star Lauren Cohan will also be returning to reprise her fan-favorite role of Maggie Greene as a series regular in season 11. The actor surprised fans gathered at the panel by walking onstage to reunite with her former cast and showrunners to thunderous applause. Her character was last seen in season 9 before the six-year time jump.

Showrunner Angela Kang appeared before the packed crowd to preview not only how the new season starts from space, but also what the Whisperers will be up to in the new installment of episodes. “I’m really excited for people to see what the Whisperers are up to,” Kang teased. “It’s such a strange and interesting set of villains.”

“The Whisperers are the perfect cross between humans and walkers,” executive producer Scott Gimple said.

Plus, it was also announced that actor Paola Lazaro has joined season 10 as Juanita Sanchez, a.k.a. the Princess, a well-known character from the comic books upon which the series is based.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays on AMC.
