Looking back two seasons to the fourth season, Lanzarote serves as the key setting of the third episode. Filming took place at Playa Bermeja, located in the Natural Park of the Volcanoes, with a crew of 80 people. According to official sources, the audiovisual production generated a profit of 270,000 euros on the island, contributing to improving the area’s reputation and economy.

The southern part of the country also played a significant role, with the city of Granada hosting one of the most representative scenes of the fifth season. “The Desert House” became a primary setting in episode 2, “Smithereens.” This house, constructed to test the resilience of its glass against desert weather conditions, is currently used as a filming location for audiovisual productions.
