Where was 13 Reasons Why filmed? - Filming Locations for the Netflix series

Thirteen Reasons Why is an adaptation from the best-seller novel from Jay Asher, first published in 2007. The story explores the mysterious suicide of Hannah Baker and the motivations that led her to this tragic end. A shoe box full of cassette tapes may have the explanation.

The cast is led by Dylan Minnette (Scandal, Don't Breathe), and Katherine Langford on her first important role of her career.

13 Reasons Why was filmed in various locations in Northern California, in the North Bay area. We will be updating and improving this report as soon as we find out more details about the shooting locations. No spoilers ahead!

  36. Jeff's tragic accident is at the corner of Woodland Ave and Auburn in San Rafael, under the 101 freeway. In reality there is no stop sign on the corner.

    ReplyDelete
  37. There's a scene at dusk/night on a hilltop overlooking the city. It's looking on downtown San Rafael and the canal off to the left. The freeway curves off to the left, the new big buildings downtown on the old pg&e site. They are sitting up on or above Robert Dollar Drive on the San Rafael Hill. I think other overlooking scenes were filmed up there or on the fire road.

  38. I was so happy to find out this series was shot so close to where I live (Fairfield). Everything cool always happens in SF or LA
