Where is 13 Reasons Why filmed? - Season 2 locations for the Netflix series

13 Reasons Why Filming Locations

Posted by Ra Moon
Thirteen Reasons Why is back for a second season with 13 new episodes. Just in case you still don't know, 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 series, which became a Netflix hit last year, is an adaptation from the best-seller novel from Jay Asher, first published in 2007. Returning to the cast is Dylan Minnette (Scandal, Don't Breathe), and -surprise- Katherine Langford on her first important role of her career.

13 Reasons Why was shot in various locations in Northern California, in the North Bay area. The filming of the original 13 episodes took six months and was mainly based in the towns of San Rafael, Vallejo and Sebastopol. We will be updating and improving this report about the shooting locations of season 2 as soon as we find out more details. 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.

  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.

    1. I’m still searching but I’m sure that this location has to do with the SF Bay ferry because you can clearly see one sailing in the background. So it could be near Mare Island because there’s a ferry route there and the river is quite narrow, probably the Napa river. The near by power cable towers also look like the ones in Mare Island area.

      Delete
    2. I’m suspecting that Zach and Hannah’s kissing location is actually Vallejo Municipal Marina because you can see the yachts, the tall wooden poles of the piers, and most importantly the lower segment of the Mare Island causeway in the background. Any one can confirm?

  43. Found a few more locations. Zach and Hannah's ice cream place is actually Double Rainbow Cafe, 860 4th St, San Rafael. Skye's rehabilitation center is actually Dan Foley Cultural Center in Vallejo. The pond where Clay and Skye took a walk is Lake Chabot in Vallejo. Zach and Hannah's pier is at Vallejo Municipal Marina, Harbor way, near Vallejo Boat Works. The nearby restaurant The Sardine Can, is where Jessica hung out with Nina and briefly kissed Damon. You can see the Vallejo Boat Works in the background.
