About AMC's The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead first started airing on October 31, 2010. It is based on a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies, more commonly known as Walkers. Even though the characters are fighting against the dead, they're also having to fight against the living. The other survivors are more dangerous than the Walkers, due to the limited supply of necessities and shelter. In The Walking Dead, there are several survivor groups that cross paths with the main characters, but not all are friendly.
This well-known TV series is based on the ongoing comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore. The TV series loosely follows the storyline of the comic books. Executive producer David Alpert had said in 2014, that the original comics have given them enough ideas for Rick Grimes for the next seven years.
The Walking Dead has currently been runnning for six years. The directors and writers have a filming license that allows them to continue filming in Georgia until 2018. It has also been rumored that The Walking Dead could possibly continue to at least 2022.
The Walking Dead is one of the most anticipated TV shows. It has a fanbase of 19.5 million people. Some fans are so obsessed and "DEAD"icated to the show that they travel to Comic Cons to meet the cast and socialize with other fans of the show. Some fans also travel to the locations where the directors have filmed, and take pictures with the sites. Some of the locations are guarded and closed because they're still filming. Locations such as the railroad tracks, Terminus, and Alexandria are blocked off (unless you wish to trespass and get the cops called on you... I would know from personal experience). The "Pudding" house, Woodbury, and the all the scenes in the beginning credits (the church, the graveyard, etc) are vistitable.
Woodbury is actually the mainstreet of Senoia, Georgia. Woodbury has several shops on the streets, including an AMC's The Walking Dead store and cafe (that happily serves Starbucks)!
