It’s going to be a very exciting Fall for Lauren Cohan fans as it looks like she will officially be appearing on two television shows! When it was first announced that Cohan, who was in the midst of contract negotiations with AMC, had signed on to a new ABC series titled Whiskey Cavalier, there was a lot left up in the air about her future on The Walking Dead. Thankfully, Cohan confirmed that she would be returning as Maggie Greene for season 9 at CinemaCon earlier this month. That announcement was later followed by ABC ‘s decision to pick up Whiskey Cavalier to series, and judging by the first trailer it looks like it’s going to a thrilling and enjoyable watch! Plus – it teams Cohan back up with her Walking Dead co-star Tyler James Williams.
Also starring Scott Foley (Scandal) and Ana Oritz (Ugly Better), the official synopsis for Whiskey Cavalier reads:
“Whiskey Cavalier” is a high-octane, hour-long action dramedy that follows the adventures of tough but tender FBI super-agent Will Chase (codename: “Whiskey Cavalier”), played by Scott Foley. Following an emotional break-up, Chase is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (codename: “Fiery Tribune”), played by Lauren Cohan. Together, they lead an inter-agency team of flawed, funny and heroic spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance, and office politics.
The first look shows the “opposites attract” personalities of Will and Frankie with Foley’s Will being a more sensitive and empathetic character and Cohan’s Frankie coming off as more guarded and sharp, but they are both equally badass. It also mixes in some solid humor amongst an action-packed backdrop. Their dynamic is giving off some major Tony DiNozzoa and Ziva David vibes from NCIS-turned up ten notches.

Are you excited about Foley and Cohan’s new show?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
