Where was The Expanse filmed?

  • The Expanse was filmed primarily at Pinewood Toronto Studios in Canada.

Filming for the new season began on October 23rd, 2019 and continued until February 2020 according to The Cinemaholic, just missing the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.

Toronto’s Pinewood location is one of the biggest film studios in Canada and boasts 11 sound stages including the ‘Mega Stage,’ one of the biggest purpose-built sound stages in North America.

For outdoor locations in The Expanse, Pinewood Toronto Studios also features a gravel-based backlot which, with the right set dressing and effects, can be made up perfectly to look like the surface of a distant planet.

Other productions filmed at Pinewood Toronto

Canada and especially Toronto is a hugely popular filming location for film and TV crews and it’s no surprise that The Expanse has made the city its home.

According to IMDb, Pinewood Toronto Studios has played host to over 80 productions since the facility opened in 2008.

These have included 2017’s IT, Schitt’s Creek, Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles, Suicide Squad, Shazam!, Scott Pilgrim vs The World and fellow sci-fi series Star Trek: Discovery.
