It looks like the question I’ve been getting most lately has been answered by AMC. Production for season four of AMC’s The Walking Dead is set to begin on May 6th, 2013. This is in line with production start dates for previous seasons (season three production also began in May of last year).
The following was announced by AMC today:
AMC announced today that the cast and crew of The Walking Dead return to Atlanta, Georgia on Mon., May 6 to begin production on Season 4. AMC also confirms Scott M. Gimple as Showrunner and Executive Producer for the series’ fourth season to premiere in October with 16 episodes.
There’s more at the link with quotes from Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, and AMC but the production start date is what concerns most folks who try and see any filming taking place. Since this information timing is about the same as the information for season three production, perhaps we’ll start hearing about locations as early as March, but more likely not until April.
As always, I’ll do my best to keep folks updated on any filming location information I find or that’s sent to me.
