AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead has been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, forcing the producers to postpone the highly anticipated season 10 finale. But fans can rest-assure the programme will be making a comeback later this year. Season 11 was confirmed by AMC in October 2019 with Lauren Cohan returning as Maggie Rhee.
Will Maggie kill Negan in The Walking Dead season 11?
Maggie left Hilltop to live with a different community after her disgust at Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) for not killing Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
She was also furious at Michonne Hawthorne (Danai Gurrira) for not letting her do the deed but ultimately made the decision to leave and not kill Negan.
Negan brutally murdered Maggie’s husband Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) after he indiscriminately chose the former pizza delivery boy and Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) to be slain from the Alexandrians.
The duo had their heads smashed in by Negan with his barbed wire-covered baseball bat Lucille.

Maggie was left utterly broken as she witnessed her husband meeting such an end, more so as Glenn was a benevolent figure.
When All Out War ended and Negan and his acolytes the Saviors were overthrown, Maggie wanted revenge but never got it and so left.
In reality, actress Cohan departed from the series to star in ABC comedy-drama Whiskey Cavalier but when the show was cancelled after one season she returned.
Speaking to AMC about coming back to The Walking Dead and a possible reckoning with Negan, the star said: “Just like in life, it might be one of those things she doesn’t know until she faces it.
“She definitely decided not to kill him on that day when Michonne discouraged her. She did go that way.
“Forgiveness is liberating. I suppose we’ll get to see to what degree she has decided to liberate herself.”
Cohan’s words leave a layer of ambiguity over Maggie’s feelings towards Negan but seemed to refer to the old maxim of time heals all wounds.
Since Cohan departed from The Walking Dead, there was a six-year time-jump after Rick was spirited away in a helicopter by Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) to convalesce from his injuries at a secret location.
When Maggie returns, she too will have changed from the character fans will remember.
Cohan spoke about how she would now be portraying Maggie going forward.
She explained: “There are definitely things she will have picked up on the road and there’s also the relationship with her son and how growing with him has affected her.
“Or even what has been happening, I’m in a liberated position to actually not know enough to give spoilers at this point!

“It’s a nice surprise to come back to these changes, understand what motivates her return, what happened while she was out there and who’s still going to be here when she returns.”
She cryptically added about Maggie: “We have a lot to unpack.”
From the sounds of it, Maggie has been through a lot in the intervening years which will impact on her significantly.
However, there is going to be a wait before fans learn more of her experiences in those six years.
Given the world of The Walking Dead continues to be as dangerous and uncompromising as ever, Maggie will have seen a lot in this time period.
The Walking Dead season 10 will return to AMC and FOX UK later this year
