The CW TV show captures the mind-boggling fight between Talon — the last Blackblood alive — and the people who killed her family.

The production crew of 'The Outpost' has close ties with the Serbian film industry.

A multinational effort, The Outpost was mainly shot in Serbia and Utah. The majority of Season 1 of The Outpost was filmed in Springville, Utah, bar one week in Ireland, per The Salt Lake Tribune. According to SFX, the creators transformed an unassuming business park in the South of Springville into an imposing fortress.

"We wanted to take fantasy in a direction that hadn't been done," Jason Faller, one of the creators, explained. "The Outpost is this remote town where nothing is supposed to happen. Yet it becomes the nexus of all the important things set to occur in this world."

The creators of the show decided to shake things up by the time the shooting of Season 2 rolled around, relocating the entire cast and crew to Serbia. As screenwriter Dean Devlin told Film in Serbia, Season 2 of The Outpost was almost exclusively shot there. As he shared, locals made up a considerable percentage of the crew.

"All of Season 2 has been shot in Serbia, [with] 13 episodes in total. The majority of post-production took place here," Dean said. "We were working with a team of four editors, a post-production supervisor, and several assistant editors in Belgrade. In addition, the entire editorial staff were all local Serbian [sic]."

It's understood that the PFI Studios, a film studio complex located on the outskirts of Belgrade, Serbia, served as the main hub. Additional filming took place in and around Belgrade as well. Fried Pictures was just one of the Belgrade-based companies actively involved in the production.
