The Surreal Life Filming Locations
‘The Surreal Life’ 2022 was filmed entirely in California, possibly in Los Angeles. The principal photography for the seventh iteration of the VH1 series seemingly commenced in July 2021. Since the previous seasons were taped in California, it makes sense that the makers decided to stick to the Golden State for the reboot. Now, without further ado, let’s find out where the celebrities spent their time together for two weeks!
Los Angeles, California
All the pivotal sequences for ‘The Surreal Life’ season 7 are supposedly lensed in Los Angeles, California’s largest city and the second most populous city in the United States. In particular, it seems the production team sets up camp in one of the mansions in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood to record the seventh season; it is a residential area in the central region of the City of Angels.
Situated in Southern California, Los Angeles is famous for its diversity, Mediterranean climate, prominence in the entertainment industry, posh neighborhoods, gorgeous beaches, and sprawling metropolitan area. Due to its ties to Hollywood, many filmmakers frequent the city yearly for shooting purposes. Over the years, Los Angeles has hosted the production of different movies and TV shows.
