At the April 2nd meeting of the Senoia (Georgia) City Council, AMC’s Location Manager Mike Riley said that the city of Senoia, Georgia and Raleigh Studios (which is located in Senoia) will be a major set for Season 3 which is in early pre-production.
“Senoia will be a major set for next season, this (third season) is long-term. We’ll be here until November.”
Speaking in general and non spoiler terms Riley went on to say that:
“The town is walled off, inside the wall is a safe zone and a benevolent dictator runs the town.”
Finally, Riley goes on to talk about how if the show maintains it’s success, the Senoia set location could become one that is recurring in future seasons. He also goes on to talk about traffic conditions while their filming, noise pollution, and how the citizen’s of Senoia could be affected and closes things with the importance of the city and the people.
“It is important that Senoia not just be a backdrop. We’ll come up with some ways to make the city feel like they’re a part of it. We couldn’t do this without the city, I think fans will show up during and after (the production) and again next year for that season if the ratings are good.”
Season 3 is scheduled to start shooting on May 31 in Senoia, Georgia
