Did you know that the hit AMC series “Fear the Walking Dead” films right here in the Austin area?

You may recall that season 4 started with the gang barricaded in the Dell Diamond in Round Rock. However, that wasn’t the only Austin locale taking center stage on the series. In fact, it wasn’t even the most popular filming locale. Later in the year, the Brackenridge Hospital campus became the scene for an abandoned zombie infested hospital and Austinites went wild tagging and sharing pictures posted on our partner site ATXgossip.com.

We thought y’all may appreciate more insight into all the Texas locations featured in “The Walking Dead” spin off.

Here are some of our favorite “Fear The Walking Dead” filming locations in Central Texas!

Dell Diamond

Known on the series simply as “The Diamond,” home of the Armadillos, the stadium is used as home base for the group during the first part of season 4.

Southeast Austin at Shady Cedar Drive and Onion Creek Drive | S. Pleasant Valley Road between Springville Lane and William Cannon | Williamson County near Thrall and Taylor Roads

Unknown scenes were shot at these locations according to film permits.

Lytton Springs General Store

The general store in Dale, Texas, is where Garret Dillahunt’s character John Dorrie gets supplies while living in his cabin, located somewhere along the Colorado River. We also know that various unknown locales in Lockhart were used for scenes involving June and John, including the bridge that continuously caused complications for the duo while living in John’s cabin.
