Viewers of the hit Netflix series Wednesday have theorized that the show will be filmed at the same location as Gilmore Girls.
The streamer adaptation of the 1992 classic film The Addams family follows Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday as she aims to master her nascent psychic abilities, prevent a killing spree and solve the 25-year mystery that has locked her parents in.
Since its release in late November, the series hasn’t just hit a surprising Rotten Tomatoes milestone (the The Independent‘s Jacob Stolworthy (concerned we may eventually regret it) but has also garnered an impressive following.
A hawk-eyed fanbase, many of whom are convinced Wednesdays City of Jericho is the Gilmore Girls Sleepy Cave.
“YOU FILMED WEDNESDAY ON THE GILMORE GIRLS SET I KNEW IT, I RECOGNIZE IT,” claimed one fan.
Another theorized that Jericho was “definitely from Stars Hollow Gilmore Girls“.
A third contained side-by-side comparison photos of the cities, highlighting their convincing close similarity.
However (sorry to burst any bubbles), Wednesday was actually filmed on location in Romania, not at the Warner Bros Los Angeles studio lot that was home to the Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham-led series.
Corresponding Romania insidersDirector Tim Burton’s spin-off was filmed in various locations around the small mountain town of Busteni.
The country’s Cantacuzino Castle in Dâmboviţa was transformed into the Nevermore Academy Wednesday school, while the city of Jericho was actually a set built in Bucharest’s film studios.
Given that Jericho is said to be based in Vermont, it makes sense for viewers to assume it’s the same location as gilmore girls, which was discontinued in Connecticut.
“Trying to make Romania look like Vermont was an interesting challenge,” Burton told Kissfm.ro.
“I had the space in the studio to create the sets, so it was great to be able to do that. We had enough space [do] Building envelopes and the construction of the city of Jericho. It’s like the sets are coming to life, and that supports the overall atmosphere of the series.”
