Ginny and Georgia is Netflix’s newest addition but just where was the series filmed? Is the town of Wellsbury, Massachusetts a real filming location?
Seen as the spiritual successor to Gilmore Girls, Netflix’s newest arrival, Ginny and Georgia has been highly anticipated by fans.
The series is set in the idyllic New England town of Wellsbury, Massachusetts where the series’ titular characters hope to start a new life.
But just where is Ginny and Georgia filmed and is Wellsbury, Massachusetts a real location?
Ginny & Georgia on Netflix
Ginny and Georgia arrived on Netflix on February 24th, 2021.
The series tells the story of angsty and awkward 15-year-old Ginny Miller, who feels more responsible than her dynamic and irresistible 30-year-old mother, Georgia.
After years on the move, Georgia is desperate for the burgeoning family to finally settle down but not long after they arrive in the picturesque New England town of Wellsbury, Massachusetts, Georgia’s troublesome past threatens to catch up with them.
Is Wellsbury, Massachusetts a real place?
- No, Wellsbury Massachusetts is not a real town.
Like towns in many films and TV shows, the too-good-to-be-true town of Wellsbury is not a real location in Massachusetts.
As Decider points out, Wellsbury seems to be a combination of the real Massachusetts towns of Wellesley and Westbury.
Where was Ginny & Georgia filmed?
- Ginny and Georgia was filmed in and around Toronto, Ontario in Canada.
That’s right, not only is Wellsbury not a real location, Ginny and Georgia wasn’t even filmed in the state of Massachusetts.
Instead, filming took place between August and December 2019 in and around the city of Toronto, Ontario in Canada.
Specific locations include TriBro Studios in East York where many interior scenes were filmed while the real-life town of Cobourg – located to the east of Toronto on the shores of Lake Ontario – played host to exterior shooting.
Ginny & Georgia is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on February 24th, 2021.
