The current and final 11th season of “The Walking Dead” is in production out of Senoia. The show debuted in 2010 and became the most popular basic cable series in history, peaking at 20 million viewers in season five. It now draws a quarter of that audience in a more splintered, streaming-focused world.
The “Walking Dead” universe also features multiple spin-off series, video games and planned movies.
