AMC has made many announcements of spin-offs and movies in The Walking Dead universe. Many fans are skeptical about the additional series since the promised movies have yet to be made. But, hold on, The Gainesville Times has some great news about Tales of the Walking Dead. Filming for this series will start in Buford, Georiga, this month.
