Season 5 is now filming in the Atlanta area, but before the cast and crew can show up somewhere they have to get the city’s permission and let the people in the area know, etc. The Spoiling Dead Fans just shared a letter from production announcing plans to film scenes in an area of Newnan, GA from June 10-17. The site labeled the spot as "Old Newnan Hospital."
The letter reads, "We will need to perform intermittent traffic control on Hospital Road between Newnan Bypass Rd and Selt Rd on the following dates and times:
Wednesday, June 11 - 7AM - 12PM
Monday, June 16 - 7AM - 5PM"
They don't say if they are just filming outside a building or inside it or what. If they are using a hospital backdrop maybe it's a supply run for more medicine for an injured character.
Which characters will be involved in the filming/production? No idea yet. Walker Stalker Con Boston is June 13-15, but TWD doesn't tend to film on weekends anyway, so that shouldn't affect who is filming. Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), who canceled his Boston Con appearance, may be pulling double duty by that point, since his movie Triple Nine is meant to start filming June 9 in Atlanta. Multi-task it like a champ, Dixon!
Any wild guesses on what they might be filming on these days?
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
