Utopia was mostly filmed in and around Chicago, Illinois, according to other reports.
Some alternative scenes were supposedly shot in Ontario, Canada, but there is very little detail on the exact filming locations.
Creator Flynn posted a photo of herself on the final day of filming, and the location was tagged as Cinespace Chicago film studios.
The family-owned filming studio has also provided the backdrop for Fargo season four, The Chi season three, Shameless season nine and many more well-known shows.
Flynn said in her Instagram post: "After 116 days, Utopia, my series for Amazon, is officially wrapped! Huge thanks to all the cast and crew for the ride. #UTOPIA."
