CORONADO, Calif. (KGTV) — Coronado residents are buzzing after closure signs posted around town seem to indicate the return of "Maverick."

San Diegans have known for about a month now that "Top Gun: Maverick" was set to return to San Diego for filming sometime this fall. Signs are leading residents to believe filming may be this week.

Signs posted along Alameda Blvd., between 1st and 3rd streets, alert drivers to "no parking" on Monday, Oct. 8, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Another sign on 3rd St. notified drivers of a detour on 1st. All just outside NAS North Island's entrances.


The City of San Diego confirmed to 10News that a filming permit was issued Thursday for the area, but would not confirm for what film.

A local who works at the base told 10News they expect actor Tom Cruise to be on base Friday, adding more credence to the film's possible schedule.

10News has reached out to Paramount Pictures' parent company, Viacom, regarding possible filming, but have yet to hear back.
