Where was 'Wrong Side of the Tracks' filmed?

Casa de Papel (Money Heist) is produced and takes place in Spain and pulled in big numbers. Lupin was also ridiculously successful, as was All of Us Are Dead, the list goes on and on.

Wrong Side of the Tracks is one of the more highly-anticipated international shows on Netflix's roster, and it's almost entirely shot in Madrid.

Spain's capital city is also its most populated. It is rife with classic and modern architecture that offers a cornucopia of interesting backdrops for any film location scout. Netflix Junkie reports that the bulk of the series' scenes were filmed in the neighborhoods of Plaza de San Andres and Villaverde Alto.

The road to production for the series was a rocky one, as it was halted by government-enforced protocols in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Spain relaxed its stance in 2021 and even ruled that the 2020 lockdown was "unconstitutional."

Filming for Season 1 of Wrong Side of the Tracks finally began in February of 2021 and finished in June.
