Albuquerque, Orange County, and other filming locations of Peacock's Poker Face
Ulster County in New York
It is safe to say that the series creator took complete benefit of New York's raw beauty as the series used Ulster County as one of the most primal locations for shooting. It is located in a county found along the River Hudson in New York.
Orange County in New York
Without a shred of doubt, Orange County is one of the most primal locations for many noteworthy recent projects. It is a significant part of the Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown metropolitan area. It is located in the Mid-Hudson Region of the Hudson Valley in New York.
The first season of the series was shot at the Umbra of Newburgh in Newburgh City. It is a renowned production facility qualified by NYS.
Middletown in New York
The first season of Poker Face was also filmed in Middletown. The location lies in the Hudson Valley region of New York and is very close to the Wallkill River.
Apart from this mystery thriller series, several other well-known projects were also shot at this location. The list includes I’m Thinking of Ending Things, Handsome Harry, and Sudden Death.
Albuquerque in New Mexico
Series creator Rian Johnson disclosed that several sequences were shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Popularly known as Duke City, Albuquerque is New Mexico's most populous city.
In recent years, the location has become one of the most wonderful spots for shooting. Situated in the high desert, the place has approximately 310 days of sunshine annually, which helps the film crew film on a perfect schedule with very few weather-induced delays.
Besides all these locations, the mystery drama series filmed a good number of sequences in locations situated all across the Hudson Valley. Places like Olivebridge, Accord, Newburgh, New Paltz, Garrison, Beacon, Middletown, Poughkeepsie, New Windsor, and Walden were used to shoot several sequences in the series.
