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?
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!
‘The Bold Type’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date
Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet.
The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!
Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26!
— The Bold Type (@TheBoldTypeTV) April 8, 2021
Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”
Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers.
The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.
Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?
Younger is ready to turn the final page!
Ahead of the seventh and final season, Paramount+ released a lengthy two-minute trailer that gives fans a glimpse of how it all ends.
The clip opens with a flashback to Charles (Peter Hermann) asking Liza (Sutton Foster) to marry him during the season 6 finale.
But, of course, it’s unclear if Liza accepted the proposal as the next scene finds her ex, Josh (Nico Tortorella), and her friend, Lauren (Molly Kate Bernard), wondering if she said yes.
News of the possible engagement spreads fast as Liza’s bestie, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), informs her that she “just heard the news,” while her other bestie, Maggie (Debi Mazar), laments that she’s “impressed” with Charles.
However, Liza doesn’t seem to think the proposal was all that romantic, which leads me to believe that maybe the couple isn’t headed down the aisle anytime soon.
Especially because the rest of the trailer seems to show trouble in paradise!
And this time, it may not be Josh’s fault… though, one scene does show him asking Liza: “if I would have said something sooner, would it have made a difference?”
Liza’s always struggled to choose between Charles and Josh, however, there may be a new man taking up residence in Liza’s life: surf legend Kai Manning, who is shopping a book at Empirical/Millennial.
And while there’s a scene of Liza and Charles kissing underneath the fireworks, there’s also some tension as he informs her that he “had to bend a lot” to be with her.
Tension also builds as it looks like Quinn is moving in on Liza’s man and Charles may be entertaining the idea!
New relationships seem to be on the horizon as Josh is spotted with a new woman by his side as his baby momma, Claire, returns.
Maggie is also smitten with a woman named Camila.
And elsewhere, Kelsey contemplates her future asking Lauren if she should “go back to Millennial,” before informing Quinn of her decision, which the billionaire calls “running home to daddy.”
‘Younger’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date, Loses Two Series Regulars
It’s the beginning of the end for Liza, Kelsey, and Empirical!
Paramount Plus announced that the seventh and final season of Younger will premiere on Thursday, April 15!
The first four episodes will be available for streaming on that day.
The final eight episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Thursday.
Those who don’t have access to Paramount Plus will be able to see the full season later in the year on TV Land.
It was also announced that Miriam Shor (the impeccable Diana Trout) and Charles Michael Davis (Zane Anders) will no longer be series regulars.
Per TV Line, the duo will be back in a recurring capacity.
“Due to scheduling and Covid related matters, Miriam Shor and Charles Michael Davis were unable to be season seven cast regulars,” series creator Darren Star said in a statement to the news outlet.
“However, they will always be a much loved and integral part of the Younger family and have added so much heart and soul to the series.”
Production for the final season was delayed significantly due to the coronavirus pandemic.
