Season Three Filming Is Under Way

As most fans of The Walking Dead know filming began this week as the cast and crew returned to Georgia for season three of the AMC series.  We don’t know all of the locations but we have mentioned a few in recent weeks.  They were filming today (Tuesday, May 8th) near Reese Road and Odom Road in Turin, GA.  Here’s a pic from that filming where Daryl (Norman Reedus) is visible (thanks to follower Jon Bealles for the pic).

I’m making this post so that anyone who sees filming, hears about locations, or has information about future filming sites and wishes to share can do so in the comments section below.  If you do not wish to make information public, feel free to email us.

I’d like to thank everyone who has passed information along to us already in these past two days.  One of our followers, Richard Cole (@Krysalos) has uploaded some pics from yesterday’s filming (as well as many other location photos) to his Flickr stream here.  If you have photos you’d like to share whether they’re individual photos or an entire album, feel free to post the link below or email it to us.  If you send a photo or album link via email please let us know if it’s OK to post the link here.

Thanks all who have contributed and we’ll keep everyone updated as quickly as possible. I’ll also keep this message on the front page for a while so it can be found easily.

    • Scott says:

I am going to try tomorrow and see what happens. Very cool that you met Andrew andNorman though! Can you email the pics? Or post them somewhere?

    • Ms.M says:

      I’m thinking about going tomorrow..besides the police blocking things off, is there a certain way we should come in,etc.? Where to park etc?

      • kim says:

        yea we drove by, (we live down the road) and its completely barricaded by police, u cant see anything not even the trailers or trucks..they must blocked it off miles up from where they are all actually at! bummer!

        • chris says:

          We actually got through to a certain point. Met Norman and Andrew. They posed for a couple pictures. It was definitely worth the drive.

    • Steven says:

      Any word on where they will be the rest of the week, I’m coming in to town tomorrow?

  15. Katebo says:

    Are they still filming and if so does anyone know where they will be filming tomorrow?

  16. Back in May I was in Atlanta putting together some filming location videos for seasons 1 and 2. I’m still editing those, but I also stopped by the street in Senioa that is standing in for Woodbury. At the time I was there, it was still unconfirmed that it was the actual location, so it wasn’t set dressed yet, but if you’d like to see the video:

  17. Emma says:

    They are setting up filming RIGHT NOW for tonight on my street (east broad st.). I will link any photos i have from tonight to you.

  18. Gary says:

    I was told by TWD locations that it would be 57 E. Broad St..They just were not sure if it would be Thur or Fri or both of this week.

  19. Chris says:

    We are on a cross country driving trip and have planned a few nights stay at High Falls State Park, hoping to catch some of the filming (hopefully still ongoing). Any information on when or where they will be filming from the 24th-27th of June??

    • I’m not sure about those dates, Chris. I haven’t heard anything. The only dates I know of upcoming are in Newnan on 6/22 or 6/28-6/29. If I hear anything, I’ll pass it along.

      • Chris says:

        Thanks a lot, maybe i’ll extend the trip a day and head to Newnan :-)

      • Joshua Hamby says:

        Do you happen to know where in Newnan they will be filming? I really want to get a chance to see them film since I missed it before :-/ I live like 5 minutes from Newnan High School.

  20. Todd says:

    New photos of Merle were released today by AMC. Looks like Merle will be The Governor’s right hand man. As Merle will be portraying the character as Martinez from the comic book series.

  21. Gary says:

    Yeah she was in a hurry .. My wife wanted to follow her but we saw she was headed for the gate.. We got a decent picture of Merle and a great shot of Glen Mazzara (exec producer) yesterday morning. It was loads of fun ..Hope to do it again before this filming season is over.Can’t wait for the new season to air.

  22. Gary says:

    Justin , My wife and I are were standing right behind you when Travis was signing your book.Did you see Andrea (Laurie Holden) in the SUV ? Tried to get a picture of her BUT unfotunately wasn’t quick enough .

    • justin says:

      haha cool! yes i did see her, matter of fact i did that thing where i started to walk in front of her, but stepped back and waved her through. i was so close to trying to get her to sign my book but she looked like she was in a hurry

  23. justin says:

    huge update on my twitter @s1ngxthexs0rr0w from yesterday and last night. watched them film a car scene, bonfire, got my book signed

  24. Richard Cole says:

    Updated photos on my Flickr from today (travis street wall and guards) and some of the changes to make Senoia into Woodbury. As well as a map that was passed out so you know how to get into some of the businesses.

    • Todd says:


      Those are great photos that you took of Woodbury. From the comic book series, the Town of Woodbury was very dirty and this town looks very clean. I guess I will have to wait and see how they film Season 3 on A&E.

  25. Justin says:

    @ryan its an idea, the tricky part is getting there when they are actually filming. my stop times today are probably going to be 430pm, 11pm, 2am, and 530am

  26. Ryan says:

    That’s a bummer, Justin. Senoia Coffee and other businesses are still open during filming(back entrance), maybe you can watch from there?

  27. Justin says:

    got lots of nice shots of the Woodbury signage last night when they were suppose to be filming (posted to my twitter @s1ngxthexs0rr0w). waited till about 1145 and the cops came around and said everything would be closed until 10am? (all i heard was “see y’all at 10am”) plan on visiting multiple times until filming is suppose to wrap Friday morning. Went by this morning at 540am and nothing but security guards

  30. Kristin Marie Leone says:

    I don’t live far from Senoia and wondering if you have any insight on when you are filming there next.

    Thank you

    • They’ll be downtown Senoia until Friday but after that I’m afraid I have no info on where they’ll filming. As soon as I get info on their next location I’ll pass it along.

  31. EcakCake2 says:

    I’m going to be in atlanta until June 6th. I’d really like to see some filming in action, any updates on when/where they’ll be filming??

  32. Pati says:

    We are traveling from Colorado, and have spent time in FL visiting family. We are returning to Atlanta on Monday, June 4, but would love to make a sidetrip to see what ya’ll are up to before we fly back to Colorado on Wednesday. Any suggestions as to where you might be on June 4 and if you’ll be filming? Thanks!

    • I honestly don’t know where they’ll be tomorrow, Pati. They may be in Senoia or the surrounding area. Since I haven’t heard of any filming notices, they may be in the studio as well. If I hear anything before tomorrow, I’ll update.

  33. Gary says:

    Sorry! Does anyone know if there will be any filming on Thursday and Friday June 7 & 8.My wife and I are off work and thought we would come down to Senoia.

  34. Gary says:

    I saw Dead Oak Rd ..Thanks. Does anyone if there will be any filming on Thursday and Friday June 7 & 8.My wife and I are off work and thought we would come down to Senoia.

  35. Gary says:

    I located Rising Star Rd but where is Dradwood Rd?

  36. Kenny Betsill says:


  37. meredith says:

    I work at Great South Harley Davidson on hey 16 in Newnan. I have been told they will be filming on Turkey Creek Road that’s off of 16. Hope to meet some of the cast!

  38. Kristie Wilder says:

    Are you allowed to watch filming? How does it work? thanks for this great site!!!

  39. Lou says:

    Hi guys,
    Does anyone have the actual address in Coweta? Also, if anyone has some other addresses where they filmed other episodes please pass them on. I live in Dallas, but I have trip coming up for work the middle of June and I was hoping to catch them filming the best show in dead legs!!!


  40. nikole says:

    They are getting ready to shoot in senoia, on main st. There are several signs saying thank you for not cutting the grass.

    • I bet that’s going to be a fun shoot to watch. Thanks for the info, Nikole.

    • bobbylee says:

      so nikole you live in senoia? i am in newnan and i am really hopeing to catch a peak at production when me family comes to visit from ny…..they are big fans too….any tips on seeing “something” would be great….

  41. Ryan says:

    It sounds very intriguing

  42. Ryan says:

    I’m seeing multiple tweets regarding filming in east Tennessee? I’m not believing it since the entire show has been filmed in GA, and it’s a Sunday. Also, there is apparently a exterior Prison set ‘somewhere’ in Coweta, they built it deep in a forest. I

    • There’s no telling and I wouldn’t put it past them. It’d be a hell of a thing to hide for long, though.

    • Anonymous says:

      I can confirm that there is a exterior prison set in Coweta…’s at the studio, along with the interior sets of the prison. I was there today and I have to say, it is very, very cool!

  43. Emily says:

    A big production is currently set up in downtown Newnan. No confirmation that it’s TWD, but should continue tomorrow as everything is still set up and they had security guards walking around tonight.

    • Daniel says:

      I am pretty sure that is for the show “Drop Dead Diva”. They put out a casting call this weekend and said that they would be filming in downtown Newnan this week.

  44. Ryan says:

    Gale Ann Hurd tweeted a photo of where they’re shooting at now. It kinda looks like they’re filming at Cochran Mill again. -No confirmation of that-
