Rumours were doing the rounds that Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene on “The Walking Dead,” was leaving the series. This was especially after it was announced that she will be starring in a new spy drama, “Whisky Cavalier.”

Those rumours have now been cleared up after Cohan has resolved her contract dispute with AMC. Cohan has been with “The Walking Dead” since the second season, but earlier this year became involved in a dispute over pay. On a separate note, the 35-year-old actress was also asked about her pregnancy and how it seems to go on forever and she joked that pregnancies take longer in the apocalypse.

‘TMC’ and Maggie Greene

Speaking of the pay-gap dispute, Lauren opened up about it to Andy Cohen. She explained that she had requested an increase in pay during negotiations, just as her contract on "TWD" was coming to the end. Cohan said she didn’t actually ask for the pay increase and that it was “pretty standard renegotiation” of her new contract. She said Maggie is definitely not leaving and that her story is very much open.

Metro reports that Cohan had told Entertainment Weekly that there is a lot more of Maggie’s story to be told. When asked what fans can expect of her in the upcoming season, Cohan told the interviewer that they know the stars of “The Walking Dead” are not allowed to say anything about the plot, but she did admit it is “so good.”

Maggie’s never-ending pregnancy on ‘TWD’

It seems like years since Maggie admitted to being pregnant and, of course, her husband Glenn Rhee has been gone from the story for quite some time.

While admittedly the show’s timeline can’t be compared to real time, many people have made a running joke about how she has been pregnant for so long but it still doesn’t show.

Digital Spy reports that Cohan appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” where the host couldn’t help but bring up her pregnancy on the show. Kimmel asked her exactly how long her character Maggie had been pregnant on “The Walking Dead.” Lauren jokingly replied that it is “somewhere between 18 and 19 years for the first trimester.”

She went on to joke that she figures there is not much nutrition available during the apocalypse so a baby takes a lot longer to grow.

Season 9 of ‘The Walking Dead’

Meanwhile, fans are upset to see Andrew Lincoln leaving the show. Lincoln has played the role of Rick Grimes right from the very beginning. Lincoln himself was upset over leaving, but he reportedly needs to spend more time with his family.

Fans can look forward to the premiere of season 9 of “The Walking Dead” on 7 October on AMC for US fans and the next day in the UK on Fox.
