The popular TV show, “The Last Man on Earth,” was not filmed in Arizona, despite its desert setting. Instead, the show’s creator and star, Will Forte, chose Chatsworth, California, for its unique landscape and rich history. During a conversation with Will Forte in 2015, he revealed that he was drawn to Chatsworth because of its fascinating past, including the real-life nuclear meltdown that occurred at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory and the infamous Spahn Ranch with its connection to infamous cult leader Charles Manson. By selecting this location, Forte was able to incorporate these unique elements into the show’s narrative, adding a layer of authenticity and intrigue to the storyline.
