Where is Outer Range filmed? The Amelia County, Wyoming, Location

Posted by

The new Amazon Studios series is Yellowstone meets The X-Files with some Twin Peaks vibes.

Outer Range was primarily filmed in New Mexico, although the neo-Western thriller is set in Amelia County, Wyoming.

Where was Outer Range filmed

This supernatural story revolves around rancher Royal Abbott, played by Josh Brolin, the supervillain Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Abbott discovers a mysterious black hole in his land, after the arrival of an enigmatic young woman, Autumn, played by Imogen Poots.

Welcome to Amelia County and our (almost) spoiler-free guide to the filming locations of Outer Range.

Amelia County, Wyoming

Amelia County Wyoming
The main street of the Amelia County town, with the cute Kiva Theater, was filmed on Bridge Street in Las Vegas, NM.

These buildings are as cool as they appear in the series - for once, there is almost no CGI and not many storefronts were dressed up for filming.

Bison Valley Bank of Wyoming
The Bison Valley Bank of Wyoming branch was actually filmed at the Community 1st Bank at 518 Douglas Avenue, also in Las Vegas.

Located around 122 miles (196 km) northeast of Albuquerque, Las Vegas is a gorgeous town established in 1835 which has preserved many 19th-century historical buildings.

Amelia County Outer Range
The diner scene where Rhett (played by Lewis Pullman) meets Maria (Isabel Arraiza) in the first episode, "The Void", is the Odessa's café at 516 Grand Avenue, also in Las Vegas.

The Handsome Gambler
Would you like to join lonesome Perry (Tom Pelphrey) for a drink at The Handsome Gambler?

The exterior of this watering hole is located at 123 Bridge Street, although it looks like the interior was built at the I-25 Studios in Albuquerque.

If you look at the Google Street View from March 2021 you'll see a film crew truck in front of the fictional Wabang Drugs pharmacy from episode 3, "The Time".

Outer Range town
The Weil and Grady's Saloon of episode four, "The Loss", was filmed at The Legal Tender Saloon at the Lamy History Museum in Lamy, a tiny western railroad village located about 18 miles (29 km) south of the city of Santa Fe.

Opened as a restaurant, the historical Legal Tender Saloon is located in a post-civil war era 1881 building.

Outer Range ranch
The location of the Abbott and the Tillerson ranches has not been revealed yet, although the Abbott Ranch maybe is just a set built somewhere near the studios in Albuquerque.

To transform the New Mexico landscape into Wyoming, the characteristic silhouette of the Grand Teton mountains was added via CGI into the background of many outdoor scenes.

Outer Range house
The design of the Abbott ranch's barn seems inspired by the famous early-20th-century T.A. Moulton Barn at the Mormon Row Historic District.

This is one of the most photographed landmarks in rural Wyoming.

Also featured in Tarantino's Django Unchained (2012), the scenic Grand Teton National Park is a wondrous section of the Rocky Mountains featuring pristine lakes, alpine wildlife, and the second-highest peak in Wyoming (13,775 feet - 4,199 m).

Rare Earth Department
In the fifth episode, "The Soil", Royal visits Dr. Nia Bintu at the Rare Earth Department of the University of Wyoming in Laramie.

This modern glass building looks like the new Physics and Astronomy Interdisciplinary Science Building (also known as PAIS) at the University of New Mexico central campus in Albuquerque.
