The Mathesons’ cul-de-sac
Fifteen years after the blackout, Ben Matheson and his children are living in a Midwest suburb cul-de-sac that has been transformed into an agricultural village. Corn, cabbage and other crops cover what were once driveways. Goats and cows are housed within pens made of wood planks and rubber tires. Above, check out the EW exclusive concept art by Grobler.
The show converted a real Georgia cul-de-sac into this Revolution village. Residents of the six houses on the block were paid for the loan of their homes. Production ripped out their lawns and outfitted the street with everything villagers would need in a world without electricity, which Grobler said was quite the involved project, though just as big a job was returning the cul-de-sac back to its real-world original state.
