The fourth season of the popular AMC drama "The Walking Dead" will be getting more than a few new characters, and the surprises just keep on coming. On Thursday, October 24 Wetpaint Entertainment revealed that several new filming locations will be used in the later episodes of the season. This information adds to the rumors that the group will be leaving the prison in the near future.
One of the new locations is a cemetery located in Grantville, Georgia and the production requested permission to place a fake gravestone there which will be for filming purposes. Since it has already been revealed that at least one major character is expected to die this season, the group could be gathering to pay respects or it could be unrelated. This is the area where the episode "Clear" was shot last season.
Another new location is Newnan, Georgia, where filming will take place around railroad tracks. Following railroad tracks can be helpful for people traveling so they don't get lost and can lead to other towns and possible shelter. The Norfolk Southern railroad tracks were also used in season one, when the group was camped outside Atlanta.
Show runner Scott Gimple hinted before the season started that new locations would be used, and if the prison survivors decide the leave the prison for good, there will be many more new locations. The new characters have yet to appear, but when they do the story might become similar to that of the comic books, with the group traveling to Washington D.C.
"The Walking Dead" will air the third episode of season four, "Isolation," will air Sunday, October 27 at 9 p.m. on AMC. Tune in find out which characters are infected with the virus and who goes on the supply run.
