The Walking Dead was among the television shows and movies that had to halt production on Monday due to the arrival of Hurricane Irma. The major storm hit Georgia on Monday night, where TWD is currently filming it’s eighth season. The CW’s The Originals, Marvel’s Avengers 4, Ant-Man and Wasp, and The Gifted are shutting down as well.
Hurricane Irma trekked through Florida, up to Georgia, parts of Alabama and South Carolina. The hurricane has down graded to a tropical storm, but left over a million people without power.
Ross Marquand who plays Aaron on The Walking Dead posted a picture on his Instagram of damage to the windows of his home in Georgia. He also posted a Instagram video of the flooding in his back yard.
AMC was supposed to announce on Tuesday when production will resume. There has been no word as of Tuesday night. This is the second time this season that The Walking Dead has shut down. The first time being the tragic accident that took the life of stunt man John Bernecker
The Walking Dead has been filming in Georgia for eight years. Interestingly enough, Georgia is where the TWD story begins. Georgia has become a mecca for film and television. The state offers a 20% tax credit for productions with a budget over $500,000. If shows add the Georgia logo at the end of the credits, they get an extra 10% discount.
The Walking Dead is scheduled to return to AMC on October 22. Stick with Geek Girl Authority for the latest on this story and more!
