The series, based on Margret Atwood’s bestselling book, is currently entering its second season and, like many other shows, is shot in and around the city.
The St. Clair West community hub now ranks among many Toronto locations used throughout the series, which include City Hall, Lower Bay, Bonjour Brioche, and a whole host of other spots around town.
There’s even a blog dedicated to keeping track of each one, accompanied by a detailed comparison showcasing how the city is successfully transformed into a desolate wasteland.
