Lauren Cohen has been on The Walking Dead since the show's second season, but going into the show's ninth the actress does not yet have a contract in place to return. She has been in negotiations with AMC for months over her potential return, but it's unclear whether she will as she's booked a pilot at ABC titled Whiskey Cavalier.

The show is described as "a high-octane hour-long action dramedy that follows the adventures of tough but tender FBI super agent Will Chase (Scott Foley) who, following an emotional break-up, is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca "Frankie" Trowbridge (Cohan). Together, they lead an inter-agency team of flawed, funny, heroic spies who periodically save the world and each other while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance, and office politics."

If ABC goes forward with the pilot, Cohen may take a reduced role in The Walking Dead or leave the show entirely.
