Where was The Mist filmed? Bridgeville, Maine, & all Filming Locations of the TV Series

Posted by

The Mist is a 10-episode series based on Stephen King’s 1984 bestseller, about a little town cut off from the world after a mysterious killer mist surrounds it.

Several groups of people end up trapped in different places. The basic functions of the town are no longer working and survival instincts bring human nature to the limit.

Where was The Mist filmed

The cast is headed by Alyssa Sutherland (Queen Aslaug from Vikings), Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under, American Horror Story), Isiah Whitlock, Kevin Copeland, Darren Pettie, Romaine Waite, and Gus Birney.

The story is set in Bridgeville, a small village in Maine. However, this new adaptation of The Mist was filmed in Nova Scotia in Canada over a six-month period. Here is our filming locations report of the series:

Welcome to Bridgeville, Maine

The Mist City
The production used as a studio an abandoned Target store located in Bedford Place Mall.

According to Halifax Magazine, the crew built there up to 10 sets, including a sewer system, forest sets, and replicas of rooms of a Dartmouth house they filmed in.

The mist covering the town
A place at Via Rail station served as the hospital, although the lobby was built in the old Rona building near Bayers Lake.

  1. Interior church shot looks like St.Paul's church in Dartmouth.

  2. That's Christ church in Dartmouth. My wife and I were married there :)

  3. The hospital was a unit behind via rail. A little over 2 years ago it was used for troubled youth. I played the dead father where my son is sitting in the room with me.

  4. I use to work for Charm Diamond Centre which prompted me to find out where this one in the film was located . Our head office was in Dartmouth NS

  5. Watching the series now love it

  6. The one with lake (a couple sitting in the deck)is in Chocolate Lake in Halifax. It's across where I stayed last May.

    1. I'm assuming the larger "mountain" in the distance is photo shopped in as we don't have any that prominent near Halifax.

  7. Many of the outdoor scenes are CGI enhanced. For example the opening scene of episode one on the mountain, and the photo of the couple next to the lake has a photo shopped mountain in the background.

    1. The filming in the mall happened (much of the time) while the mall was still open. It was a pretty dead mall but still it got interesting. One time a fella walked into the "Clark's" store and started browsing much to the horror of the "extras" who were in place and ready to go. lol

  8. the lake is miller lake in fall river with the mountain edited to look bigger
