Maggie might be making her return sooner than we expected on The Walking Dead after ABC canceled Whiskey Cavalier on Sunday. The series, only in its first season, stars TWD-alum Lauren Cohan and Scott Foley as the leaders of an inter-agency team. Warner Brothers’ Television arm has a major stake in the series and is actively shopping it to other networks.
By all indications, the series was set to take over the network. It received a special post-Super Bowl preview back in February and nearly every critic who tuned in loved it. The tuning in seems to have been the main hurdle the show couldn’t get over though. Executive Producer Bill Lawrence took to Twitter Sunday to break the news:
#WhiskeyCavalier is unfortunately over. I actually did have an investment in the show and the people. I’m sad. I’m grateful for the chance.

Scott Foley also took to Instagram with his wife (and guest star) Marika Dominczyk to thank viewers:
Though there wasn’t a huge audience for the series like I said above, WB TV is hoping to continue the series at another network. I haven’t seen any episodes myself but given the critical buzz around the show, it’d be a shame to see it go before it really has time to figure itself out.
Whiskey Cavalier still has two more episodes left in its first season. The show airs Wednesday nights on ABC.
