Last week we started hearing reports that The Walking Dead was already filming their second season around Atlanta, but didn’t have a definite filming location until today.

Thanks to one of our Twitter followers, @m_collins5, we were able to confirm that The Walking Dead is filming on Hwy 20 near Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, GA today.

Update: Filming will continue at this location through Thursday.

The show is also expected to film in the Peachtree City and Senoia areas in the next few weeks.

AMC’s upcoming original series, The Walking Dead, will begin filming in Atlanta, GA on June 2nd. So far, the network has ordered five episodes in addition to the pilot.

The series is an adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s novels in which an epidemic sweeps the globe and causes the dead to rise and eat the living. The story is not just filming in Atlanta, it is also set in Atlanta.

Locations scouts have chosen the Fairlie-Poplar District of the city to film a majority of the series since there is less traffic, yet it is still visually stimulating.
