I’ve posted links to both of these stories via Twitter in the past week or two, but figured I’d consolidate the information here not only for anyone looking for it, but also for those who don’t follow me on Twitter.
AMC’s The Walking Dead will be filming in the Newnan and Grantville areas in the coming weeks. First up is Newnan, GA. According to this article from Times-Herald, the crew will be filming on the Norfolk-Southern railroad tracks near 1st Ave and the dead end of Long Place near 1st Ave. This filming will be taking place on October 24th between 7AM and 8PM.
This isn’t the first time the show has filmed near, or on, Norfolk-Southern tracks. A railroad yard owned by Norfolk-Southern was seen several times during season one. Also, Merle was handcuffed to a pipe on the roof of the Norfolk-Southern building.
The production has also received permission from the Grantville City Council to film in the Grantville City Cemetery. There has not been a date, nor times, released for this filming but it’s supposed to be some time in late October or early November.
Update: I was waiting for permission before passing this along and now that I’ve received it, here it is. According to this notification letter, the show will also be filming on Friday, October 25th on E. Newnan Road between Turkey Creek Road and E. Freeman St. between 6AM and 11PM.
