A mission to Macon County may be in the works for the characters in AMCs popular zombie drama The Walking Dead.
In Sundays Season 4 premiere, the sword-wielding, revenge-seeking, Michonne (Danai Gurira) pointed to Macon County on a map.
Her trip idea is part of her ongoing hunt of the psychopathic villain from Season 3, The Governor. She is told to hold off, as the area is 70 miles away and presumably filled with flesh eaters.
Some in the midstate may be disappointed after initially assuming the city of Macon to be the intended destination. Leading to the confusion before the map was shown at the end of the episode, Macon was mentioned without reference to the county.
Fans of The Walking Dead video game expressed excitement on social media in anticipation of a crossover between characters in the show and characters in the game, where a fictionalized rural city version of Macon is the setting.
The show, televisions highest rated across the 18-49 demographic, scored 16.1 million total viewers for Sundays premiere. It is filmed in Senoia, which is in Coweta County.
