New productions are slowly coming back in Georgia in the new year as the actors and writers strikes recede into the rear view mirror.

But unscripted shows are still a majority of the 28 active productions currently listed on the Georgia Film Office site. Only 11 are scripted compared to 22 out of 31 at the same time a year ago.

Of the scripted productions that have already begun this year, the most notable are the final seasons of Netflix’s “Cobra Kai” and “Stranger Things.” Both were delayed by the one-two punch of the writers and actors strike. “Cobra Kai,” in its sixth and finale season, began January 4 and will run through May 29. “Stranger Things” started production of its fifth and final season Jan. 8 and will likely be shooting in metro Atlanta for a bulk of this year.

Two Hulu series also began up again: season three of legal drama “Reasonable Doubt” and season two of relationship drama “Tell Me Lies.” And BET+’s comedy hit “The Ms. Pat Show” has also begun its fourth season.

On the movie side, a college recruiting film “Signing Day” about National Signing Day has began production. Oscar winner Mira Sorvino leads a cast that also includes Michael Mosley and Rob Morgan with cameos from football legends Marshawn Lynch and Brian Bosworth.

The biggest scripted production that wrapped before Christmas was Clint Eastwood’s “Juror #2″ in Savannah starring Nicholas Hoult, Zoey Deutch and Toni Collette.

Expect more films and series to arrive soon. For instance, “Fight Night: The Million Dollar Heist,” based on an actual Atlanta robbery in 1970 following a Muhammad Ali fight starring Kevin Hart and Samuel L. Jackson, is set to begin shooting Feb. 5. And Tyler Perry’s “Madea’s Destination Wedding” comedy on Netflix is set to begin next week.

“Family Feud,” the syndicated game show hosted by Steve Harvey, will be shooting episodes at Trilith Studios in Fayetteville later this month with free in-studio tickets for the next set of future tapings available at https://on-camera-audiences.com/shows/family_feud.

The Georgia film office provides an ever-changing list of active productions, but it is not necessarily complete because production companies are not obligated to update the Georgia film office. And if a company requests the production stay off the list or requests use of a pseudonym, the film office will oblige.

For instance, “Stranger Things” is not listed but Netflix released a photo on its official “Stranger Things” Instagram account last week announcing the start of production. (UPDATE: A few days later, “Stranger Things” was listed on the site with a fake name: “Cedar Lodge.”)

I also glean some titles from productionlist.com and other sources. (Georgia does provide an alphabetical directory of every production it has ever kept track of here.)
