According to a press release from Netflix and this from Tim Keller at Deadline Hollywood:
Netflix Commits $1 Billion More In New Mexico Production Funding As It Expands ABQ Studios; ‘Stranger Things’ Joins List Of Albuquerque-Set Shows
Netflix purchased Albuquerque Studios in 2018 and has since spent more than $200 million in the state, utilized more than 2,000 production vendors, and hired over 1,600 cast and crew members. Production is ongoing there on the original films The Harder They Fall and Intrusion. The plan is for filming to begin soon on Stranger Things 4 in Albuquerque as Netflix brings a bulk of its signature series there after previously shooting in Atlanta. Other Netflix productions filmed in New Mexico include Army of the Dead, El Camino, Godless, Daybreak, Chambers and Messiah. Netflix also has production hubs in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Brooklyn, New York, and Vancouver.
“Ever since Netflix first chose New Mexico, they have been nothing but an incredible partner, pushing the boundaries of innovation and expansion while providing fulfilling work opportunities for so many New Mexicans,” said Governor Lujan Grisham. “My administration has expanded our state’s competitive film incentives, facilitating higher-wage employment for New Mexicans all across the state and increased opportunities for rural communities. I am glad Netflix has chosen to double-down on its commitment to our state, and our partnership will continue to grow for the benefit of New Mexicans across the board.”
Part of the proposed investment brings a focus on growing the crew base and talent pool, and Netflix has committed to provide training programs for below-the-line positions in partnership with the New Mexico Film Office, local universities, labor and industry organizations. Netflix has also committed to support New Mexico’s Native American, Latino, Black and other underrepresented groups’ content creators and filmmakers.
