You'll Never Guess Which Quaint Southern Town Netflix's 'Echoes' Was Filmed In (EXCLUSIVE)
Clear your schedules, ladies and gentleman. Netflix’s newest original series premiered on Friday, Aug. 19, and it's sure to keep your attention all damn weekend.
The new drama series Echoes follows identical twins Leni and Gina McCleary (played by Michelle Monaghan) who often switch lives in the sleepy town of Mount Echo, W.VA. However, the community is rocked to its core when one of the sisters goes missing.
Though the film is based in a small town in West Virginia, viewers may be surprised to learn where the series was actually shot.
Distractify recently spoke with Echoes actress Alise Willis, who shared exclusive details on the filming locations. In addition, she also shared her thoughts on a possible Season 2. Read on to learn more!
Where was the Netflix original series ‘Echoes’ filmed? Details on the filming locations!
Although Echoes is set in West Virginia, the harrowing apple blossom trees that we saw in the debut season are actually located in Wilmington, N.C.
Alise, who has roots in the midwest, admitted that filming in the south was a “bit of a culture shock.”
“I've lived in New York, Paris, London, Los Angeles, [and] Chicago. Even though I'm from a small town, I'm a city girl," the Echoes actress told Distractify.
"So getting off the plane it was like, ‘Wow, okay, this is North Carolina... This is Wilmington,'" she continued. “But I loved it.”
Netflix's Echoes was shot in the town of Southport, which is currently home to a little over 3,000 residents. “And it was like one of these little picture book towns, you know? Very warm, friendly people. [It was] just a great experience overall," the actress added.
Will there be a Season 2 of Netflix’s ‘Echoes’?
The season finale of Echoes left us in shock with the final moments of the series leaving us with more questions than answers. So, will there be a Season 2?
"Anything is possible," Alise said. “It's a seven-part limited series, it's always a possibility for more episodes."
While there are currently no plans to renew the series, if the opportunity arose, the actress wouldn’t mind taking up the mantle of Meg “over and over and over again.”
“I'm really biased because I'm in it, but it was such a fun role to play.” Alise stated. "I think that they leave the door open [for another season.]"
Season 1 of Echoes is available to stream on Netflix now!
