Apple TV+’s SURFACE With Gugu Mbatha-Raw Moving Production From Vancouver to London For Season 2

Apple TV+’s Surface with Gugu Mbatha-Raw will be filming in London-as-London in season 2 not Vancouver-as-San Francisco., with Sophie returning home to the U.K. to figure out where she comes from and what made her such a mess.

This is really a brand new chapter set in a whole new world – I can’t wait for people to see how the show evolves as we explore an emboldened, fearless Sophie in season two – showrunner Veronica West.

Working title: Madeline.

Season 1 of the psychological thriller was set in San Francisco and followed Sophie, a woman with a wealthy husband (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) who’d recently suffered a traumatic head injury that left her with extreme memory loss, believed to be a result of a suicide attempt.

As Sophie investigated herself, she discovered secrets like the affair she’d been having.

And deeper questions about a hidden past in the U.K. and her true identity.

The Surface series started filming in Vancouver in late June last year.

And wrapped filming in late October last Fall.

Season 1 cast: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Stephan James, Ari Graynor, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Francois Arnaud, Millie Brady.

We saw some regression in Sophie’s character over the course of filming.

This was the episode directed by Jennifer Morrison of Once Upon a Time fame.
