Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley as Elena and StefanAccording to, a local news source for the Newton County area, the Vampire Diaries will begin filming in Covington, Georgia on the 21st July, 2009 through to April (2010).

Warner Brothers representatives spoke at Monday’s city council meeting to let the city know its plans and receive tentative permission to film on the square, and on Floyd and Washington streets among other downtown locales.

You can read the whole article at, and visit the official Covington website for more information about the city.

And for those of you interested in random Vampire Diaries trivia, Covington happens to be the name of the town in Louisiana where Ian Somerhalder (Damon) was born.

Update: have a follow-up article which goes into a little more detail about what’s going on, along with all kinds of interesting location tidbits. It also clarifies that the Vampire Diaries is currently set for 12 episodes with room to extend it to more should the show prove successful. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

    I live in Covington and I knew much of the Heat of the Night crew and actors. They lived within minutes from me and my momma. I got my belly button and nips pierced and Hugh was one of the first to check it out! My two boys got their belly buttons pierced at the grunge in the square.
