Posted by Ra Moon

Who drew the dicks? This was the 2017' Who Killed Laura Palmer. The new Netflix series is a true-crime parody.

The plot unfolds the mystery around the 27 penises that a morning appeared on 27 cars in the parking lot at Hanover High.

American Vandal Season 2 Location

The cast features Jimmy Tatro as Dylan, accused of the act of public vandalism, investigated by the aspiring documentarian Peter (Tyler Alvarez). This eight-episode season also stars Griffin Gluck, Jessica Juarez, Camille Hyde, Lukas Gage, and Eduardo Franco.

Although set in Oceanside and Carlsbad, American Vandal was actually filmed in Pacific Palisades, a neighborhood by the coast of the city of Los Angeles, near the Santa Monica Mountains.

For season 2 the production was moved to Portland, Oregon. These are the most relevant filming locations for one of the less anticipated shows of the year.

At first, it seemed that Palisades High might have been used only for establishment shots and aerial views.

However, we can confirm that the crew was filming on the campus.
