The Walking Dead may have had to cut its season short because of the new coronavirus pandemic, but they had enough footage of the original season 10 finale to give us a nice little peek of what’s to come – Maggie’s back.

When Lauren Cohen “left” The Walking Dead, it was a pretty big hit for the series considering she was another of the original crew to depart. Fans found out late last year that Cohen would be making a return but there were no details on exactly when. When last we left her storyline, Maggie had traveled to Alexandria, witnessed that big bridge blow up with Rick seemingly a casualty, then she left with Georgie for another community.

Showrunner Angela Kang was pretty cagey on the details of Maggie’s return. “We’ll see some more of the new characters as they’re featured this season, and we will see more of the epic conflict we’ve been witnessing all season with the survivors and the Whisperers.” Kang said. “And we’ll see that Maggie is…. We’ll know what’s happened with her and what that means for our group.”

AMC also posted a behind-the-scenes video of season 10 that features background on the Carol/Alpha rivalry, Negan’s odd journey, Judith and Daryl’s relationship, and that big return to Atlanta.

Last week’s episode of AMC’s long-running zombie drama, “The Tower,” was meant to be the penultimate installment of the season. But because post-production was thrown a curveball in the form of COVID-19, it had to act as the season finale.

AMC’s The Walking Dead (and Maggie) will return with, “A Certain Doom,” a one-off finale special at some point this year and it has, already been renewed for season 11.
