Where was Special Ops: Lioness filmed – a breakdown of filming locations

Where was Special Ops: Lioness filmed? We discuss the popular Paramount+ series and the filming locations used by the production crew.

Paramount+ has again pulled out the stops to bring us a brutal and thrilling spy drama, Special Ops: Lioness.

Under the watchful eye of Taylor Sheridan, you might remember him from such projects as Yellowstone and Tulsa King.

Special Ops: Lioness has already managed to grip audiences with its chilling tale of undercover female agents who use their skills to endear themselves to the families of suspected terrorists so they can be about their downfall.

Sheridan has once again managed to attract some Hollywood A-listers to get on board with the show, and just like Kevin Costner, Harrison Ford, and Helen Mirren in the Yellowstone franchise before this, we are met with Nicole Kidman and Morgan Freeman.
