Where is Black Summer filmed
Posted by
Black Summer puts the viewer right in the middle of a frantic zombie outbreak, following a group of survivors, trying to make their way to safety. The events are happening in the same universe of the Syfy show Z Nation, cancelled last year after five seasons.

The Netflix series is a prequel of Z Nation, taking place in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. The cast is led by Jaime King as Rose, a mother who is separated from her teen daughter, and Justin Chu Cary playing the enigmatic Spears.

Black Summer was entirely filmed in Calgary and in a few villages in Alberta province. We've tried our best to keep spoilers at bay in this filming location report of the series:
