It’s nearly time for The Walking Dead to return to Senoia. 

“Principal photography” for season eight is set to begin May 1, according to Location Manager Mike Riley. 

Riley spoke Monday night to the Senoia City Council. 

Riley said there was a bit of work that needed to be done on the Alexandria set, located at the bottom of Main Street in the Gin Property residential development. 

“We probably have more work to do,” he said. 

“I just wanted to say hello and that we’re glad to be back,” Riley said. 

He said he’s had a positive meeting with new City Manager Harold Simmons and that he thinks they’ll have a productive working relationship. 

“We’ve got a good relationship with the city and the citizens of Senoia,” he said. 

“Welcome back,” said Councilman Maurice Grover.
