Following in the successful footsteps of the Australian original, ‘Love on the Spectrum U.S.’ is a reality show that revolves around a set of individuals on the autism spectrum as they navigate the complex world of dating. It essentially explores the difficulties they face while also tackling the misconceptions about their lives to emphasize that everyone — no matter different or not — deserves love and respect.
This Netflix original is truly as insightful as it is heartwarming, especially with the way it keeps a bright yet authentic light around the matter at hand to keep us rooting for every participant. So now that we have covered the basic concept of this wholesome docuseries, let’s take a deep dive into all the production spots where the show has been carefully lensed, shall we?
Love on the Spectrum U.S. Filming Locations
Since co-creator/director Cian O’Clery has relied entirely upon the participants as well as their potential suitors for content, it goes without saying that the shooting locations are their base localities. Therefore, ‘Love on the Spectrum U.S.’ is primarily filmed in Los Angeles in California, Boston in Massachusetts, and Greenville in South Carolina, among other places. Filming for the inaugural installment likely took place in late 2021. Here are more details on the places that serve as filming sites for the show!
Los Angeles County, California
From Dani Bowman to Abigail “Abbey” Romeo Lutes and from Subodh Garg to his parents and sister, most of the show’s main cast members reside in Los Angeles County, making it the central filming location. Thus, of course, apart from their beautiful homes, a few diverse local restaurants and a couple of the region’s several piers briefly feature in this fan-favorite dating series.
Other Locations in California
Dani and Solomon as well as Abbey and David’s second dates were lensed at Kimberly Crest House & Gardens in Redlands and Lion, Tigers & Bears wildlife sanctuary in Alpine, respectively. At the same time, San Francisco featured extensively in season 1 since it is home to cast member Steve. Hence, we get a glimpse of The Painted Ladies, Pier 39 shopping center, The Twin Peaks, and many more prominent landmarks in the Golden City.
James’ hometown of Boston in Massachusetts is another production spot for the Netflix original, just like it was for some incredible movies such as ‘Free Guy‘ (2021), ‘Knives Out‘ (2019), ‘The Departed‘ (2006), and ‘Good Will Hunting‘ (1997).
Greenville, South Carolina
The wonderous Northwestern city of Greenville in South Carolina is an important filming location for the Netflix production since it is home to Kaelynn Partlow. However, it also serves as a filming location for other movies and TV shows like ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm‘ (2020), ‘Leatherheads’ (2008), and ‘Banshee’ (2013-2016).
Tuxedo, New York
Although not a primary shooting site, the town of Tuxedo in the state of New York, did make an appearance during James and Emma’s second date when he took her to the New York Renaissance Faire in episode 5. The theme park is situated off New York State Route 17A.
