[Finale] Griselda Season 1 Episode 6 Recap

Where was the movie Griselda shot?

The setting of Griselda is brought to life through careful shooting in two well-known places: Los Angeles, California, and Miami, Florida. The production started on January 24, 2022, and was supposed to end on June 30, 2022. Interestingly, the show was filmed under the working title “Emerald,” which could be seen on the chairs of different directors during the production.

United States, Los Angeles, California:

Los Angeles’s lively cityscape was a key filming site that captured the essence of Griselda’s story. Finding places like Long Beach that fit the story’s period of the 1970s and 1980s showed how carefully the story was reconstructed. Griselda’s story took place on Long Beach beach lots, where trailers, portable toilets, classic cars, and power generators all came together to make the show run smoothly.

Redondo Beach is another example of how many places the show can be shot. As early as November 2021, location scouts were actively looking for places to film in Long Beach, California. The show turned the old Club Ripples into “El Floridita,” which is a great example of how committed Netflix is to making settings that feel real and draw you in.

Miami, Florida, USA:

The second main filming site for Griselda was Miami, which is known for its rich history and wide range of cultures. The sites in Miami and the care that went into designing the sets were meant to take viewers back to the 1970s and 1980s, giving them a visual feast of the time.

Filming went on for a long time; the crew took over beach lots and changed the layout of rooms so they could shoot nonstop. The last episode of the show aired on July 2, 2022, ending a six-month journey for the cast and team. In a happy Instagram post, Sofia Vergara thanked the whole team and emphasized that it was their work together that brought Griselda to life.

The DailyMail, JustJared, and the makers of Griselda all gave more information about how it was made. DailyMail took a picture of Sofia Vergara in action, wearing a green dress with red accents. The newspaper wrote about all the shootings that was going on in Long Beach and how the locations were changed to fit the 1970s and 1980s timeline.

The show’s creators, like director Ingrid Encajeda and executive producer Eric Newman, interacted with fans on social media. Ingrid Encajeda’s Instagram posts gave fans who were looking forward to the show a sense of community by showing them what went on behind the scenes. When Newman talked about the problems and chances that Griselda Blanco’s character offered, it made the notorious person seem more real.
