Where is Euphoria filmed? Filming locations Guide: The city where Euphoria is set

Posted by

Euphoria is a coming-of-an-age drama about high school students navigating their way into adulthood, struggling with drugs, sex, and almost everything else that happens during this age.

The show, now back for season two after the special episodes released in December 2020 and January 2021, explores teenage life without pretending to give a moral message or to tell people what the right thing to do is.

Euphoria filming locations

Euphoria is not set in any specific city, but it was filmed in and around Los Angeles in California.

Most of the studio work was done at Sony Pictures Studios, at Washington Boulevard in Culver City, where the shocking rotating room scene from episode one was filmed.

Jules and Rue

The HBO series stars Zendaya as drug addict Rue (Spider-Man's love interest in Far From Home and No Way Home, although she's also known for her roles in The OA and K.C. Undercover). Hunter Schafer plays Jules, a real transgender actress, model, and artist.

Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Sydney Sweeney, Angus Cloud, Alexa Demie, and Maude Apatow complete the main cast.

Welcome to our spoiler-free guide to the filming locations of Euphoria. Stay tuned for season 2 updates on this page!

Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance served as the shopping mall featured in the series.

I'm wondering if Euphoria's characters could ask their fellow high school students from Moordale Secondary (the troupe from Sex Education) for advice.
