Posted by

Everything Sucks is a new high school tragicomedy from Netflix. This time the action is taking place in 1996. Packed in a light 10 half-hour episodes format, the show gives some mercy to binge-watching addicts.

The story revolves around the rivalry between members of the geeky A.V. club and the outsiders of the drama club.

Where was Everything Sucks filmed

There are a ton of websites commenting on the plot, so we will focus on what we are good at, finding the filming locations for the series.

Everything Sucks was filmed in Oregon City, Portland, and Boring. So, is it Boring a real town? Let's check it out. No contains spoilers!

Where is Everything Sucks set
Everything Sucks is set in the real town of Boring, Oregon (Clackamas County).

The production was filming a few exterior shots there. However, the town sign featured in the series is not like the ones that you will find in Boring.

Everything Sucks Boring
In Oregon City, the Jackson Campus Building A from Oregon City School District became the high school.

If you look at Google Maps street view from August 2017, it still shows the sign Boring High School - Home of the Beavers.

Studio scene
The Willamette Falls Media Center (at 1101 Jackson St, Oregon City), hosted the AV club facilities in its basement.

The production used the'90s-era equipment from the center, and WFMC got in exchange the latest high-end green screen. Image courtesy of Netflix - Map

Some other locations were filmed around the McLoughlin neighborhood, also in Oregon City.

Dominguez Rocks
At first, we couldn't find the Dominguez Rocks anywhere - A reader suggested that they were the Vasquez Rocks in California, featured as a filming location in the Westworld series.

Fort Rock
But definitely, thanks to the help of Kaspar Howe, we can confirm that the crew filmed at Fort Rock.
