Last year, Toronto was ranked one of world’s most popular filming destinations. It’s no wonder Netflix Canada shot one of its latest shows right here in the city.
Locke and Key was released on February 7, and besides having a Canadian crew, the new drama series also showcases different locations around Toronto.
According to Netflix, the show is about a family discovering mysterious worlds, and is set in Massachusetts.
To achieve the rural Massachusetts look, the crew filmed part of the show in Nova Scotia. But Toronto took over a large part of the production.
