During an interview with Cinema Blend on whether she’d ever had discussions about a supernatural revival, Cohan admitted the chat had happened, but not lately.
We did [have talks]. It wasn’t for the final episodes, but a couple of years ago, there was a small thing they wanted to do, and it was like at the exact same time as something really heavy on The Walking Dead.
The actress added,
And no, it just didn’t happen. This is years ago, but no… They should have.
Cohan went on to state Supernatural lost an opportunity by not letting her share the screen with her Walking Dead co-star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who portrayed Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean‘s (Jensen Ackles) father, John Winchester.
They could have had me and [Jeffrey Dean Morgan] in some random moment. They didn’t know each other, or wouldn’t have met, but then that would be three things that he and I have played across from each other.
So that was an untapped opportunity if you ask me.
But while Cohan never made a return to Supernatural, she’s returning to The Walking Dead as Maggie for season 10’s six more episodes next year.
