The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan won't get to take on another mission in Whiskey Cavalier, as the ABC spy drama has been officially cancelled.

There had been reports this week of the network potentially saving the series, but showrunner David Hemingson has now confirmed its unfortunate fate.

Hemingson took to Twitter on Friday (May 24) to announce that the show has been "fully and finally cancelled".

In the first of two tweets, he wrote: "Friends: I just got the sad news that @ABCNetwork has passed. #WhiskeyCavalier has been fully and finally cancelled. Thank you all so, so much for your efforts on our behalf. I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the outpouring of support."

In the second, he added: "It’s incredibly painful to say goodbye to this show and our extraordinary cast, but knowing that we made something you enjoyed - and that I believe will stand the test of time - makes it all worthwhile."

One the bright side, the comedy-drama's axing could potentially free up Cohan to reprise her role as Maggie in The Walking Dead.
