Getting lost in a fictional world created by your favorite TV show is easy, especially with streaming services bringing the characters and locations inside your home! 

With services like Netflix and Disney+, you don’t have to wait a week or more to watch the next episode — you can binge seasons upon seasons in one sitting.

It’s easier for you to connect with the show and as it becomes your reality, you find yourself wanting to visit all these places to have the same experiences as your best friends. 

According to a survey by OnBuy, an online marketplace based in the UK, more than 100,000 people search the location of Netflix’s top 11 shows each month including Stranger Things, Ozark, Black Mirror, Breaking Bad, and Money Heist

Of course, the need for travel has only intensified throughout the COVID pandemic. With the virus limiting and restricting travel, many people are dreaming and possibly even planning future vacations that are set where their favorite shows were filmed. 

So, where can your favorite shows take you?

15 Shows That Give You Major Wanderlust

OnBuy found that Stranger Things was the most popular show searched with 42,000 monthly searches for the locations where the show was filmed. While the show takes place in Hawkins, Indiana, it isn’t filmed anywhere in Indiana. 

Instead, Atlanta, Georgia provides the backdrop for the sci-fi thriller.

The site notes much of the filming for seasons 1 and 2 happens at Stone Mountain Cherokee Loop Trail (here are the exact coordinates: 33.808399, -84139244).

You can plan your own tour or, if you don’t want to do all that work, you can book a guided tour! Civitatis will pick you up at your hotel and take you all around “Hawkins.” Or you can check out Atlanta Upside Down Tour! 

Ozark is one of Netflix’s most popular shows and while it’s based in a real place called the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, again, it it’s filmed in Atlanta mainly at Lake Allatoona and Lake Lanier. Explore Georgia has a whole post dedicated to filming locations that you can visit and that includes the 3,500-acre home of Del Rio as it was filmed at the Chateau Elan Winery and Resort in Georgia.

Once this whole COVID thing blows over and traveling is allowed once again, maybe you can check out the fake Ozarks and the real Ozarks?!

Breaking Bad, which originally aired on AMC, continues to be a hit for Netflix as it gains steam from the prequel Better Call Saul. The shows have peaked people’s interest into Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

New Mexico is just as excited about the tourism, so you can find plenty of tours including an RV tour that takes you to iconic sites like Jesse’s house, Chucky’s, Dog house, Tucco’s, Combo’s corner, thRV Junkyard, Los Pollos Hermanos, Owl Cafe, Jane’s, Walt’s house, the Car Wash and Superlab. They even include some spots from Better Caul Saul spots!

And for anyone looking for some international travel — without the meticulously planned heists — plenty of fans have been looking up Madrid thanks to Money Heist (La Casa de Papel). 

Most of the show’s first two seasons are filmed in Madrid as the series centers around the robbery of the Royal Mint. However, if you want to snag a picture in front of the exterior, you should know the show wasn’t allowed to film in front of the actual Royal Mint of Spain and instead used the National Research Council. 

Of course, there are dedicated tours to help you visit all the hot spots including Guruwalk walking tour in Spanish.

Season 3 and 4 of the series takes viewers a bit out of Madrid in case a Euro-trip is calling your name. Snag the list of filming locations here

The publication found plenty of searches for New York Logos Bookstore, the backdrop for the psychological thriller You.

And we can’t forget that many Game of Thrones fans have made it their favorite past time to visit GOT filming locations and recreate scenes. 

Many tours are taking COVID precautions if you’re in the area, but you can’t travel now, be sure to plan a future vacation that takes you on the set of your favorite TV show!

Will ‘Manifest’ Get a Season 4 After All?

Manifest Season Finale Review Mayday Part 1 and 2 Season 3 Episode 12 and 13

Merely weeks after the devastating cancellation of NBC’s ManifestTVLine confirms that the network has been in talks with Warner Bros. and Netflix about a possible Season 4. However, reps for NBC, Netflix, and Warner Bros. have refused to comment for now.

Following the news of the supernatural drama’s abrupt ending in mid-June, fans took to social media with the hashtag #SaveManifest in hopes of reversing the decision and getting it picked up by another network.

After the release of the first two seasons on streaming services, the series quickly dominated the charts. It remained on Netflix’s “Top 10” watched shows for 27 consecutive days and Nielsen’s weekly streaming chart during the week of June 14.

Jeff Rake, Manifest’s showrunner, tweeted in late June, “Your support is awe-inspiring…we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story.”

While Rake has not confirmed that another season is officially happening, he did note: “Lots of speculation out there. No comment. Other than, if the impossible happens and the dead rise again, it’s because of YOU.”

Whatever it takes, Rake will even choose to produce a two-hour movie to bring closure to Manifest.

So Manifesters, you’ve been heard, and you can only get louder from here! Will the answers you’ve been waiting for resurface in a possible Season 4 pick-up? Will 828 fly again?
