A New and Very Popular Netflix Show was Filmed in Mississauga
If we’ve learned one thing over the past year, it’s this: Netflix loves Mississauga.
Or creators of Netflix shows enjoying filming in Mississauga, at the very least.
If you’ve been watching the Umbrella Academy on Netflix—a brand new show that explores the adventures of estranged siblings with extraordinary powers who uncover shocking family secrets and other dire dangers to the world at large in the wake of their father’s death—you might have noticed that some places looked familiar.
You can see a trailer for the Umbrella Academy below:
According to the City of Mississauga, some scenes of the popular TV show—which stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper and David Castaneda—have been filmed in Mississauga.
In the scene above you can see the detective going after an assassin played by the one and only Mary J. Blige through the hallways of a motel. This motel happens to be the Mississauga Gate Inn on Dundas. If you look at the scene in the background you can see Urban Manor signage in the background.
The city says the show has been shot in Port Credit, Lakefront Promenade Park and businesses on Dundas Street East.
The show has been earning some rave reviews since it premiered on Netflix last month. In fact, people are already excitedly talking about season two.
While it’s exciting that Umbrella Academy has been filmed in our neck of the woods, it’s not the first Netflix series to make Mississauga a star.
In 2017, an episode of Black Mirror—directed by acclaimed actress Jodie Foster—was partially shot in Mississauga.
The scene in the Arkangel episode was filmed at the “Accent Furniture Warehouse,” which is located in the Dundas and Dixie Area.
Mississauga has actually been the site of scenes from a number of TV shows the past, and now we can put two Netflix series’ on that prestigious list.
