The Boys Filming Locations

If you’re familiar with The Boys, you’ll know that the series takes place in New York City, United States. But you’ll be surprised to know that this Amazon Prime Video hit series based upon the comic developed by Darick Roberston and Garth Ennis isn’t even filmed in the United States. Yes! That’s right, the filming locations of The Boys are set in another country. And we’re about to tell you where do they film this dark comedy series.

Toronto, Canada

The Boys is filmed in Toronto, Canada. Moreover, several places that we see in the series are iconic landmarks in the Canadian city. Take, for example, the Vought International HQ, that’s the Roy Thomson Hall, located in the populous entertainment district of Toronto. Of course, the building’s façade takes a little alteration to become the infamous Seven Tower.

Ontario’s Film Scene

Toronto’s film scene has been growing in recent years, with many new and exciting films being produced in the city. Toronto is home to a number of film festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival, which is one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. The city is also home to a number of film schools, which are training the next generation of filmmakers. Toronto is a great place to make films, and the city’s film scene is only going to continue to grow in the future.

Toronto is regarded as a major center for the country’s film and television industries. Moreover, the streets and attractions have appeared in several shooting projects because of their ability to stand in for worldwide cities such as New York and Chicago. Additionally, some famous projects have used the city’s features throughout the years, including movies like ‘Total Recall,’ ‘Hairspray,’ and ‘Robocop,’ as well as TV shows like ‘The Umbrella Academy’ and ‘Reacher.’ One of the reasons why filmmakers choose Toronto is because of its great tax incentives and credit programs that bring these business ventures into the city. They are extended to digital media, film, television, and other creative resources.

Hughie’s Store

Some scenes filmed in Hughie’s electronics and appliances store are intended to portray your typical Brooklyn street. But in reality, it’s O’Connor Drive in East York, Toronto. Moreover, several action scenes involving Queen Maeve and Homelander were filmed on Hamilton’s Catherine Street.

What About Times Square?

When you see the characters of The Boys walking around the popular Times Square in New York City, that’s a computer graphics image-created version of the world-famous location in the Big Apple. In reality, the cast and crew shot those scenes in Yonge-Dundas Square. Furthermore, because Toronto has so many busy streets and locations, that makes it so versatile to emulate the busy streets of New York City.
