If you’re watching 13 Reasons Why Season 3 on Netflix, you may be wondering just where the third season is filmed. The series is filmed in California, just like the last two seasons. Read on for more details.
Liberty High Is Analy High School in Sebastopol, California
The scenes for Liberty High are filmed at Analy High School in Sebastopol, California, in West Sonoma County. Before it was even announced that the show had been renewed for Season 3, Paramount has already signed a licensing agreement to film there again for Season 3. Paramount Pictures paid the school district $66,000 for 30 days of filming in Sebastopol.
Analy is changed a lot for the filming. The contract requires that the school name isn’t used anywhere. Signs are changed, and the vertical columns are painted a different color, with landscaping changed for production too. (Sometimes they also use a replica of the school for interior shots.)
Here’s another photo from the Liberty High filming.
