Orion Avenue, which has changed little in 60 years, has been called the most filmed street in the San Fernando Valley, standing in as a vision of Anywhere, U.S.A., in all sorts of productions.

According to the IMDb location notes, this house appeared in a couple of episodes in the 80s popular soap opera Dynasty.

Madre Linda CA
But what about all the new You season 3 locations? Where is Madre Linda?

It seems that the pandemic was an important factor that prevented the show from being filmed on location, as in the previous seasons.

Season 3 features a lot of stock footage of cute random towns used as establishing shots for the Madre Linda neighborhood created for the series. The aerial view in the last episode is from San Luis Obispo, CA.

A Fresh Tart Bakery
Atlas of Wonders has tracked down the location of Love's bakery, A Fresh Tart.

Love is played by Victoria Pedretti, one of the siblings of The Haunting of Hill House.

The facade and the interior were filmed in one of the fake buildings located at the Warner Bros. French Street set in the backlot of the studios in Burbank.

You series city
The scenes outside the gym, including the one in the first episode where Love meets Sherry and her friends, were also filmed here in the French European-style street.

The set has several storefronts, a landscaped park, and the original café set where the Gilmore Girls series was filmed.

Dante and Lansing's home is one of the fake houses on the famous Blondie Street also located at the Warner Bros. Studios. This residence is situated almost across the street from the Wandavision house featured in the Marvel show.

Madre Linda Library
Marienne Bellamy (played by Tati Gabrielle, known for her roles in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The 100 series) meets Joe at the local Madre Linda Library.

The exterior of the building was filmed at South Pasadena Public Library located at 1100 Oxley Street.

Built in 1907 and expanded in 1930 and 1982, the library's facade ornamented with Greek mythological elements that appear in the series is located at 1115 El Centro Street.

You series library
However, the library's interior is a detailed set built at the studios.

The Iamnotastalker.com website wrote a report in 2018 reporting that the South Pasadena Public Library has been featured in many TV shows filmed in Los Angeles, including The Mentalist, The Ugly Truth, Brothers and Sisters, Modern Family, and Perception.

Glasells Market
The fictional Glasell's Market that appears in the first and the second episode (the scenes where Joe is stalking Natalie and Love meets Theo respectively), was filmed in a store located at The Vineyards at Porter Ranch shopping mall.

Casa Gaia Vineyard
The fictional Casa Gaia Vineyard from episode six, "W.O.M.B.", was filmed at Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club with some winery-looking props.

This luxury private 250-acre ranch located in the Malibu Wine Country can be hired for wedding ceremonies and corporate events.

The vineyards in the background were CGI'd into the scene on an existing hill.

Irving Group Home For Boys
As in the previous season, there are a lot of flashbacks set during Joe's childhood set at the New York State's Irving Group Home For Boys.

The exteriors were filmed at the Mary Andrews Clark Memorial Home, a Châteauesque-style building constructed in 1913 as a YWCA home for young working women.

Today, the structure located in the Westlake North neighborhood of Los Angeles is a registered historic monument used as housing for low-income single workers.

You series in Paris France
The final scene on a busy street in Paris was also recorded at the Warner Bros. Studios thanks to a little CGI help. The sequence was shot in a permanent exterior set called Hennessy Street.

Constructed in the 1930s, but extensively rebuilt in 1981, this set has been featured in tons of movies and TV shows.
