The Austin Chronicle reports that production for The Walking Dead spinoff Fear the Walking Dead will be moving to Savannah, Georgia, after December 17.

This isn’t the first move for the series as it filmed the first two years in California and then on to Baja California in Mexico for the third season. The series has filmed its past four seasons in and around Austin. This move will have severe effects on the Austin job market. The Austin Chronicle has reported that Texas Motion Picture Association executive director Paul Jensen confirmed the show’s departure.

This move will be devastating to the Texas film community. It is thought that this move has to do with the Texas Moving Image Industry Incentive Program (TMIIIP) which is slowly seeing a reduction in funding each year. This will not only affect Austin as Fear the Walking Dead has filmed in Round Rock, Bartlett, Lytton, LaGrange and Manor.

This will be a smart move on the part of AMC as The Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act (GEIIA) gives a 20% tax credit to companies that spend $500,000 or more in Georgia during production and post-production. This can include a single production or the total of multiple projects aggregated in a single tax year.

Fear the Walking Dead season 8

In June, fear the Walking Dead co-showrunner Ian Goldberg told Insider, “It is not the final season, at least as far as we know from AMC. They haven’t told us that.”

He went on to say they will continue to tell the Fear TWD stories as long as AMC permits them to do so.

There has been o official announcement of renewal for season 8, but if they’re planning on moving production to Georiga, it is a good sign that the series will be renewed.

Fear the Walking Dead season 7

The spinoff series is currently airing its seventh season on AMC and AMC+. The sixth and seventh season has seen a resurgence in the series as the storylines have gotten much more enjoyable. A nuclear bomb explosion has transformed the atmosphere and landscape, making for a massive transition for the characters in season seven. Many new characters have also been introduced in the first half of the current season.

The series has three characters who have crossed over from the flagship series. Morgan Jones (Lennie James), Dwight (Austin Amelio) and Sherry (Christine Evangelista) all made successful transitions to Fear TWD and are now main characters in this series.

With The Walking Dead ending in 2022 and the second spinoff series The Walking Dead: World Beyond in its final season, Fear TWD would be the only current series to carry on the fandom.

Plans are in the works for a Walking Dead Carol and Daryl spinoff series and Tales of the Walking Dead has been greenlighted for summer 2022.
