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!

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Launching in National Syndication Following Emmys Sweep

Published

Schitt's Creek to Be Available for National Broadcast Syndication

The small town of Schitt’s Creek is going nationwide! 

After sweeping the Emmys on Sunday, September 20, the half-hour sitcom is coming to a TV near you. 

You’ll be able to watch the fan-favorite comedy anywhere as it’s being launched into national syndication across U.S broadcast markets starting on September 28, per the press release from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, who owns the domestic broadcast rights. 

Prior to Sunday’s show, the Pop TV original had zero Emmy’s, but now, it’s being referred to as a nine-time Emmy Award-winning comedy. Talk about bragging rights. 

During the 2020 virtual show, it won all seven of the major comedy categories and became the first to win all four comedy-acting categories in one year. 

QUIZ: Which ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Character Are You?

The cast includes Emmy Award winners Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott. Rounding out the cast are Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Sarah Levy, Karen Robinson, Dustin Milligan, John Hemphill, Rizwan Manji, and Tim Rozon.

Schitt’s Creek centers on an outrageously wealthy video store magnate, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy); his former soap-star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara); and their two adult children – the self-described black sheep of the family David (Daniel Levy) and career socialite Alexis (Annie Murphy). When the family suddenly find themselves broke, they have no choice but to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small-town Johnny once bought as a joke. Forced to live out of a motel, with their pampered lives a memory, they struggle to find jobs and relationships and, most importantly, figure out what it means to be a family in the loveable town they’ve reluctantly come to call home. 

Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, commented, “What begins as a fish-out-of-water story quickly develops into a nuanced love letter to family, delivered with warmth, humanity and perfect comedic timing. With a gifted cast and whip-smart writing, it’s easy to see why ‘Schitt’s Creek’ appeals to Emmy voters, critics and viewers, and has built a loyal and passionate fan base. We are excited to bring the Emmy Award-winning series to broadcast television stations and introduce the iconic Rose family to a new audience.”

Previously, Schitt’s Creek was available for streaming on Netflix.

The sixth and final season will be available on the platform starting Wednesday, October 7.

‘This Is Us’ Season 5 Moves Up Premiere Date – Find Out When You Can Reunite with the Pearsons!

This Is Us Season 5 Moves Up Premiere Date - Find Out When You Can Reunite with the Pearsons!

The wait for new episodes of This Is Us is almost over. 

The show’s fifth season will premiere on Tuesday, October 27, a few weeks ahead of its previously announced November 10 premiere

NBC made the announcement during a commercial that ran during the season finale of America’s Got Talent on Wednesday.

The show’s official social media accounts also revealed the good news writing: “We just couldn’t wait any longer, but we have a feeling you won’t mind.”

The reunion with the Pearsons will be a two-hour event, which will hopefully answer some burning questions left behind by season 4 like who Madison’s doctor is and why Nicky was by Rebecca’s bedside instead of Miguel. 

Oh, Baby! ‘This Is Us’ Actress Mandy Moore Pregnant With First Child

The series has about a month to turn over new episodes as TVLine notes that the series is set to start production this week following a mandatory hiatus brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Like many shows including FOX’s The Resident, the season isn’t shying away from reality but will instead tackle the pandemic “head-on,” series creator Dan Fogelman revealed on Twitter.

It’s unclear how the public health crisis will play into the show’s narrative or how it’ll affect the tight-knit Pearson clan. Maybe that’s why Randall and Kevin haven’t seen each other for years? Yes, we’re trying to pretend that big explosive fight in the This Is Us Season 4 finale never happened! 

Turning it over to you, Cravers. Are you excited for the return of This Is Us?
