We viewers may have only seen the first two episodes of The Walking Dead Season 4 so far, but the cast and crew is already hard at work on the back half of this so far stellar season. Yesterday we told you that the cast was headed to film in a cemetery in Grantville, Georgia in the coming weeks, and now we have additional info about more upcoming filming locations.
Today, October 24, various members of the cast are expected to film at the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks behind 21 1st Avenue and the dead end of Long Place between 21 and 19 1st Avenue in Newman, Georgia.
According to a local paper — the Times-Herald — the cast are crew are expected to be filming in that area nearly all day, from 7 a.m. ET to 8 p.m. ET. As WalkingDeadLocations.com notes, this isn’t the first time TWD has filmed at or around the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. A railroad yard owned by Norfolk-Southern was shown several times during Season 1, and Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) was handcuffed to a pipe on the roof of the Norfolk-Southern building in one of the show’s first episodes.
Lastly, WalkingDeadLocations.com also notes that TWD will be filming on Friday, October 25 on E. Newnan Road between Turkey Creek Road and E. Freeman St. They are expected to be shooting from 6 a.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET.
We don’t have any information about which actors are expected to film in these places, but given the variety of locales it’s possible that our group of survivors may have left the prison behind. There has been a ton of speculation about whether or not the flu and feeding of the walkers will force everyone out of the prison, though nothing has been confirmed yet.
Showrunner Scott Gimple explains to The Hollywood Reporter, “We've talked about different locations this season, so who knows what can happen. Who knows, maybe they'll pull it off and maybe that requires another location. Maybe other locations come from them not pulling it off. It comes to a head sooner than later.”
Let’s not discount the possibility that these locations are also part of another supply run, though those are usually filmed in less rural areas.

The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
