For those wondering where is vampire diaries filmed, the answer is of course the Hollywood of the South – Covington, Ga.  Vampire Diaries isn’t the only supernatural show being shot in Covington! The Originals, a ‘spin-off’ of the hit series The Vampire Diaries premiered last week in Conyers. This series is all about the original family of vampires that was introduced on The Vampire Diaries in April. The Originals is set in New Orleans but was filmed this past summer in Olde Town, Conyers, Georgia. Conyers is located roughly twenty minutes from Covington, Georgia where all the vampire hype began and of course is where is The Vampire Diaries filmed still.
Last week, the spotlight was on Conyers. On Tuesday before the premier a stunt double was hoisted up the clock tower of Newton County Courthouse. This was a practice run in preparation of a shoot scheduled for the next day. What a drop!

After a successful landing and practice run, the scene was shot on Wednesday. What better way to get ready for a premier!
Finally, on Thursday the premier of the Originals was shown, and fans in Conyers gathered to watch it. The Olde Town Conyers merchants and the Conyers Main Street Foundation showed the premiere on a 21-foot inflatable screen on Commercial Street. The group planning out the premier in Olde Town wanted to celebrate Olde Town being in the show. This gathering was also a way to enjoy the premiere with the community and fans.
If you are a Vampire Diaries fan and haven’t seen The Originals yet be sure tocheck it out! It now airs on The CW Network!
