Where was Daisy Jones and The Six filmed?: Is it really in Los Angeles?

Daisy Jones and The Six features more than one locale that needed to be represented properly from Los Angeles to New York to Greece, production had to convincingly bring the show’s audiences on a ride with this series whose characters travel from one end of America to the other and even leave the country at one point.

We all know Hollywood loves creating magic, dropping viewers into stories where it appears they’re in the city the show or movie is set in when really they’re on a studio lot or in another city entirely. A ton of work goes into providing the audience with the feel of the setting even if they actually haven’t been transported to the place the series is telling they’re in.

Was that the case of this Prime Video original? Was Daisy Jones and The Six filmed in all the locations the characters travel to or is it TV magic? Keep reading for details.
