Where is Big Sky filmed? Filming Locations Guide

The cast of the series
Posted by

Big Sky is David E. Kelley's new thriller, the creator of hit series like Ally McBeal, Big Little Lies, Goliath, or more recently The Undoing.

The plot revolves around a team of private detectives, Cassie Dewell (played by Kylie Bunbury who starred in Brave New World) and Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick, Lagertha from Vikings). The duo will investigate the disappearance of the Sullivan sisters (Natalie Alyn Lind and Jade Pettyjohn), who were kidnapped by long-haul trucker Ronald Pergman (Brian Geraghty). John Carroll Lynch also plays a key role as highway patrol Rick Legarski.

The series is set in Helena, Montana's state capital city, so many establishing shots of the town are from there. However, Big Sky was entirely filmed in and around Vancouver in British Columbia. We will be updating this spoiler-free report every week with new details about the filming locations of the show:

Big Sky house
Dewell and Hoyt Private Investigations office is located in a baby clothing store called Watermelon in Fort Langley. Fort Langley is a cute town that has been used as a location for many shows and movies produced in the Vancouver area including Riverdale, Sabrina, and Home Before Dark. We also found Cassie's house located very close to the office in Church St.

The town in Helena Montana
Big Sky was also filming scenes in Downtown Vancouver. After the fight in the Hammerhead bar, the girls recover from their wounds in the fictional Lewis and Clark medical clinic that was set up in an empty store on Homer Street.

Squamish Forest and Pitt Meadows
The great outdoors shown in the series were filmed in the Squamish Valley. The road less traveled through Yellowstone, where Natalie and Grace are intercepted by Ronald, looks like the gorgeous arboreal rainforest near Squamish. This moss-covered forest was also featured in a scene of Leonardo DiCaprio's The Revenant.

Service station truck parking lot in Hope
The truck stop is the Esso Gas Station located in the outskirts of Hope. The city is located 96 miles (154 km) east of Vancouver, in the gorgeous Fraser Valley.
