AMC’s The Walking Dead is planning to film in Grantville, GA over the next week. According to this article from Times-Herald.com:
Crews are expected to shoot interior footage at 16 Main St. beginning Thursday, with outdoor filming scheduled next week.
Grantville will be bringing in additional police personnel, presumably to assist with traffic and crowd control, to help their existing force. According to Grantville Mayor Jim Sells,
Our hope is that this brings more attention to our charming downtown historic area and we wind up with future filmings.
Anyone who’s been able to make it over to Senoia during the summer, when the town is converted into Woodbury for filming, knows how much attention having the show in your town can bring. There is also a normally welcome influx of fans and onlookers hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite character/actor. Hopefully this location works well for everyone involved and The Walking Dead can film there in the future as well.
