The Walking Dead may be headed for the coast!

Stalwart Films, a production company behind The Walking Dead, gained permission from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to film along the beach at Jekyll Island in Georgia. Of course, the AMC series is currently set in Alexandria, Virginia, so this location will be playing the role of an Atlantic Ocean bordering beach or Virginia lake.

The scene being filmed by Stalwart Films at Jekyll Island is described to contain part of a human corpse, which will be half buried in a tidal pool. No word on which cast members or characters will be a part of the scene but it will likely pop up around the midseason finale or premiere in season 7 given the current status of production.

The studio with which The Walking Dead shoots has been gearing up for some scenes to be shot in open water for some time now. The type of shoot isn't ringing any bells from the comics (unless it's covering A LOT of ground in 8 episodes) as much as it is sounding like something out of companion series Fear the Walking Dead.

"We've definitely had a busy few years and this spring and summer has been a culmination of a lot off different projects in the film industry," says Scott McQuade, President and CEO of the Golden Isles Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Walking Dead will return for its seventh season October 23 at 9 PM ET on AMC. For complete coverage, insider info, and more all season long, be sure to follow me on Twitter @BrandonDavisBD and check out The Walking Dead on on Facebook.
