New day, new ‘do! The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan showed off a new short haircut at the Jingle Ball in NYC on Friday, December 11, that had heads turning — and fans of the show are wondering what it might mean for her character.

Cohan, 33, who plays Maggie on the hit AMC series, previously had shoulder-length hair throughout the past few seasons.

Upon seeing her new look, the show’s fans freaked out on Twitter, speculating on whether it foreshadowed some major plot twists. Last month, the zombie drama revealed that Maggie is pregnant with her and husband Glenn’s first child.

“Lauren Cohan's new haircut is gorgeous but I hope Maggie lives because she and Glenn need each other so please,” one fan tweeted. “Let it be a change for good.”

“GUYS I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING, Lauren Cohan got a new haircut a few months ago... MAGGIE IS GOING TO DIE IN THE SEASON FINAL I KNOW SHE IS,” another fan fretted.

“Lauren looks so perfect with her new haircut I'm crying,” another gushed. “ #twd #amctwd”

Other Walking Dead fans, though, were not sure what to make of the new ‘do.

“I don't know how I feel about Lauren Cohan's new haircut,” one person wrote.

“I’m very emotional about Lauren Cohan’s new hair,” another tweeted.

The Walking Dead is set to return to AMC in February 2016.
