Netflix’s ‘Dating Around’ hinges on the idea that meeting partners can be quite difficult. Therefore, in the series, people choose quantity over quality. They go out on a series of five dates which are filled with flirtatious banter, the occasional awkward exchange, and even rarer moments of genuine connection. Once the dates are over, the individual gets to decide whether they want to go out with any of the potential matches, for a second time.
The series has been shot artistically and has the added advantage of introducing viewers to some nice dating spots. While the first season filmed entirely in Brooklyn, New York, Season 2 has changed locations surprisingly. So, where has ‘Dating Around’ Season 2 been shot?
Dating Around Season 2 Filming Locations:
‘Dating Around’ Season 2 is filmed in New Orleans, instead of New York. The quaint setting has several romantic spots perfect for dates, so without further ado, let us jump into the specifics of where the show has been filmed. However, here’s a tweet confirming where the new season has been shot.
