 AMC is set to start production on the hit zombie-drama “The Walking Dead” this May 6th in Georgia.

The GWW reports, cameras are set to begin filming on May 6th of this year in Atlanta and Senior, Georgia. Filming is set to wrap on November 21st. Angela Kang will reprise her role as the showrunner of the series with Gale Anne Hurd, Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero, and Amy Beth Barnes executive producing. Norman Reedus is expected to return as the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon alongside Melissa McBride, Samantha Morton, and Dania Gurira. 

Season 10 will center around the communities of Alexandria and Hilltop as the group deals with the looming threat of the Whisperers. The new season is set to premiere this October 2020.

This news comes after Norman Reedus said he will “burn down the studio” if “The Walking Dead” kills off his character Daryl Dixon.

“I don’t want to go anywhere. I’ll burn down that whole studio if they got rid of me,” he told ET recently. “I always said I wanted to just walk off into the sunset with a dog, but now so many people are doing that, that I don’t know. I don’t know how I’d want to die. I don’t want to die ever, so I don’t want to put it out there. I don’t want to give anyone any ideas.”

Reedus reportedly receive a major pay bump for this past season after Andrew Lincoln left the show, and has now effectively turned into the show’s leading character.
