The film and TV production numbers have stabilized this summer in Georgia after a brief spike in the spring. The current count is 45, including what the Georgia film office is tracking plus two active Netflix productions not listed.

The biggest new production that started up late last month is the sequel to “Black Panther” called “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” at Trilith Studios in Fayetteville. Although lead Chadwick Boseman died last year, most of the original cast is expected to return.

Samuel L. Jackson’s AppleTV+ dramatic series “The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey” (using the fake name “Memories”) wrapped after more than three months in town.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Instagram last week also said he was about to wrap the big-budget superhero film “Black Adam,” which is still listed on the Georgia film office site as active as of July 13.

The Georgia film office, which provides a live, ever-changing list of active productions, does not include Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and “Ozark” because Netflix requested they not be on the list. And the list is not necessarily complete because production companies voluntarily inform the Georgia film office of what is happening. They are not obligated to do so.

Since the film office does not provide a public archive of past productions, this monthly update that I’ve been compiling since June of 2019 provides a close equivalent.
