As the hours count down to the season 10 premiere this weekend, AMC has announced that The Walking Dead will be returning for an 11th season next year. If the early renewal wasn’t enough to surprise fans, they also got the news that Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, will be returning as a series regular in season 11.

Viewers last saw Maggie in season nine as the leader of The Hilltop. She mysteriously disappeared leaving her community to appoint a new leader and fight off the season’s newest big bad, The Whisperers. Maggie’s whereabouts and reasons for her departure were vague, leaving fans hopeful that Lauren Cohan would eventually return to the show.

Maggie won’t be returning just yet, but in the meantime, fans will get to see their current favorites come together to fight off The Whisperers in season 10 which premiers October 6 on AMC.

Amanda is a mental health counselor by day and a nerd by night. She’s been fangirling since 1989 when she had so many New Kids On The Block posters in her bedroom that she ran out of wall space and had to put them on her ceiling. She finds people and stories fascinating and even went to film school years ago. The journey from film to Social Work is a long, depressing tale, but she came out the other side feeling inspired to help people. Now she’s living out that old Hollywood cliché. You know, the one where someone can’t contain their passion any longer and leaves a career in entertainment to pursue their dreams of becoming a therapist in the Midwest. She’s not a filmmaker anymore but she is a fan. Her favorite genres are sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, and musicals. She loves Supernatural, New Kids On The Block (duh), and comes from a family of Star Trek nerds. She might also be a little obsessed with her cats.
