Where is 13 Reasons Why Filmed?

The Netflix show is filmed in a fictional place called Crestmont but the location of filming actually took place in San Francisco’s Bay Area in California.

You’ll notice in the TV show there is never any real mention of time and place and this is so the issues the teens face in the show are both timeless and relatable.

A few of the series’ famous scenes are actually filmed in a nearby warehouse but most take place in real-life places.

For example, the school used for filming was Analy High School in Sebastopol, California.

Monet’s - where the students of 13 Reasons Why either hang out or work - is actually a real coffee shop and the Cresmont Movie Theatre is filmed in an empty shop building in Vallejo.

Clay’s family house is set in Bayview Street in San Rafael and the school gym isn’t actually filmed at the same school as the rest of 13 Reasons Why but at a former gym and bowling alley which was given a makeover.
