Where Is Debris Filmed? (All Locations) | Screen Rant

The sci-fi series is set all over the USA, but where was Debris actually filmed? Producer, screenwriter and director J.H. Wyman cut his television teeth working on J.J. Abrams’ sci-fi procedural series Fringe and – when the show was canceled after five seasons – went on to spearhead his very own show in the form of fellow Fox show and sci-fi crime drama Almost Human. Wyman recently made a return to the TV sci-fi genre when he created the X-Files-inspired Debris.

This series follows American CIA operative Bryan Beneventi (played by Jonathan Tucker, Snowfall) and British MI6 agent Finola Jones (Riann Steele, The Magicians) as they join forces to investigate a series of strange incidents that occur after wreckage from an alien spacecraft starts falling to Earth. The mismatched duo race to track down the various debris from the spaceship that has scattered across the USA before it can fall into the hands of those who intend to use it for nefarious ends.

The premise of Debris means that the show has multiple settings. The pilot episode, for example, sees agents Beneventi and Finola Jones travel to Wichita, Kansas to investigate the mysterious disappearance of several people in a case with ties to a large piece of spacecraft wreckage. The sophomore episode“You Are Not Alone”, meanwhile, saw the duo investigate strange occurrences in the small town of Fleetwood, Pennsylvania. Other episodes have been set in rural Tennessee, New York City and coastal Maine – but where did Debris film? It might be set in various locations across the USA, but Debris was actually filmed mostly in and around Vancouver, Canada.

According to The Cinemaholic, the show shot scenes at locations including the swanky Rosewood Hotel Georgia in downtown Vancouver (where Supernatural was also mainly shot), Mud Bay Park in neighboring Surrey and in the picturesque Vancouver suburb of Port Coquitlam. Hollywood North Buzz and MovieMaps also report that Debris was filmed at central Vancouver sites like the city’s historic Gastown district and 1475 West 8th Avenue (or “The Fortress” as it’s colloquially known), alongside several locations in the suburb of Ladner including Boundary Bay Airport and the Sundance Pub and Inn.

Debris was unfortunately canceled by NBC after just one season, so Vancouver-based sci-fi fans won’t have the opportunity to spot further local filming sites in the show anymore. However, Debris is one of many productions shot in Vancouver including fellow sci-fi TV shows like The X-Files, Fringe or Battlestar Galactica.
