It’s not often that seeing Negan’s lair up close could be referred to as a “lucky day,” but that’s about to change for fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Riverwood Studios, home to the hit show, is opening up its lot for official tours.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the studio in Senoia, Georgia, will be open for tours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from December 14 through March 31. It seems likely that the tours are ending in March in order to accommodate the start of filming on Season 10 in May. Among other iconic sets, visitors will be able to see Negan’s Sanctuary, the grand Hilltop mansion, secretive Oceanside and the walled community of Alexandria. The official press release also promises fans “never-before-seen” sites.
“For years, the devoted fans of The Walking Dead have been eager to get behind the studio walls and see the unique way this series is made. It’s exciting to now offer a closer look to all who have supported The Walking Dead,” says Tom Luse, general manager of Riverwood Studios and executive producer of the show. “Our cast and crew work tirelessly to bring this series to life. We are extremely grateful to all who make this show possible on and off set. We could think of no better way to say thank you than to share behind the scenes with the public.”
Tickets and more information are available The Walking Dead Studio Tour website.
Airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC, The Walking Dead stars Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Nadia Hilker, Dan Fogler, Angel Theory, Lauren Ridloff and Eleanor Matsuura. With the series now having reached its mid-season finale, The Walking Dead will return from its winter hiatus with all-new episodes on February 10, 2019.
