‘Fear the Walking Dead’ has invaded Round Rock
On Saturday, May 5, one of the primary filming locations from Season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead will be transformed from the Round Rock Express into the Round Rock Armadillos! The Express hosted the AMC production from November 2017 to early March 2018. The stadium was reconstructed as a post-apocalyptic home of the fictional Round Rock Armadillos.
During initial pre-production phases, we worked alongside the Austin Film Commission to conduct preliminary location scouting efforts and facilitate introductory discussions between AMC executives and Round Rock Express management.

"To have the entire ballpark transform into a television set for several months, then be ready to go for Opening Day is a testament to the great staff we have here with the Round Rock Express," said Express President Chris Almendarez. "We are excited to bring an international spotlight to the City of Round Rock and show the world all that Central Texas has to offer."
