The shooting season has taken a relative lull. The production count right now is only 44, down from 57 in mid-April. That’s the lowest number I’ve seen this year.

This is likely temporary. A lot of big projects just ended and new ones are set to go soon. Some TV shows such as ABC’s “Wonder Years” and “Queens” recently shot pilots in Atlanta and are likely to come back here to shoot this summer.

Two big Disney+ shows just wrapped: “Ms. Marvel” and “Hawkeye.” DC Comics film “Black Adam” and Disney+ series “She Hulk” are still in production.

An upcoming reboot of “Father of the Bride” starring Andy Garcia is not listed yet but is set to start production next month. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which will be coming up on season 13, typically returns to production in June.

A big-budget Paramount superhero film starring Owen Wilson called “Secret Headquarters” has begun filming. He recently shot the upcoming series “Loki” at Trilith Studios in Fayetteville for Disney+ .

Alec Baldwin is shooting a storm-chasing action film “Supercell” in both Montana and Georgia.

And Jamie Foxx is in the midst of working on a new Netflix vampire comedy film called “Day Shift.”

Netflix series “Sweet Magnolias,” which started new episodes of season 2 in March, was added belatedly to the Georgia film office list in April.

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 June 2019, I have been posting a monthly update on what’s happening so The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has an historical record of what’s happening in the state over time.
