What news?

Atlanta is known for more than just peaches and horrible traffic, people! Our film industry is growing. There are a lot of movies and TV shows that have filmed here, and we thought we’d take a look at what’s happening now.

What’s been filmed here that I’ve heard of?

Over the years, lots of popular movies and TV shows have been shot right here in our backyard. Some of the ones you’ve probably heard of are The Hunger Games and Allegiant. Atlanta’s also been making a name for itself in the TV industry, especially with popular shows like The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, and Stranger Things being filmed in the area. And the buzz won’t die down anytime soon – Stranger Things and The Walking Dead continue to film here, according to an Atlanta Magazine article.

What’s happenin’ now?

What’s filming in the city now? As per usual, Atlanta’s film industry is busy, busy, busy. There are lots of movies being filmed and produced in and around the city right now. Some of them are…

  • The sequel to Bad Moms (starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn) – Comedy
