The real city locations where The Boys series is filmed

The Boys location
Posted by
The Boys brings a very different and darker approach to the world of superheroes, compared to Marvel and DC's universes. As if they were the corrupted counterpart of the Avengers, a selected team of top superheros -The Seven- is controlled by a corporation that manages their services as a business, looking for profit and fame. A group of misfits with no powers called The Boys will try to expose and stop them.

The show is based on the comic of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the cast is lead by Jack Quaid (Hughie Campbell), Karl Urban (Billy Butcher), Antony Starr (John/Homelander), Erin Moriarty (Annie/Starlight) and Tomer Kapon (Frenchie).

The Boys is set in New York (as we can see from many of the establishing shots of the city), but it was mainly filmed in Toronto. These are the spoiler-free filming locations that we've found so far from this awesome web television series:
