by Sarah Fay Campbell
The moment walker stalkers have been waiting for is almost here — the return of "The Walking Dead."
Season four of the zombie series, filmed extensively in Coweta, premieres Sunday at 9 on the AMC cable television network.
Marathons of "The Walking Dead” play today and tomorrow, with the season three premiere starting at 1 p.m. The season runs all the way through, ending at 5 a.m., when the season replays again, ending with the season 3 finale, at 8. You can also watch the last five episodes of the season on AMCtv.com .
A five-minute season four preview is scheduled to play at 9 p.m. tonight and noon on Sunday.
The first episode of season four is titled "30 Days Without an Accident." The synopsis on AMCtv.com reads "the group lives an ideal life at the prison and strives to hold on to humanity."
The premiere will be followed by "Talking Dead" at 10:01 p.m., and an encore of the "30 Days Without an Accident" at 11. The episode will replay at 12:30 a.m. and 3 a.m. Monday.
Season four was filmed in areas of Coweta including at Raleigh Studios outside Senoia, downtown Senoia, and several areas around the county, including, recently, Raymond-Shedden Road and Dead Oak Road. There's still a bit of filming left to do.
Crews have headed out of Coweta recently to film in south Fayette County and the Milner area, "so they will be out of Coweta for a while, at least out in the county," said Tray Baggarly, Event Services director and camera ready liaison for Coweta County.
