When did filming take place?
There are conflicting reports on when filming took place the Original.
According to IMDb filming began on the 7th of January 2019.
Whereas the wiki page for the series claims filming took place between October to December 2018. The two sources for this claim fail to mention when filming was carried out, therefore, IMDb’s report that filming began in January is likely the truth.
Where did production take place?
We can definitely confirm that filming for the series took place in the Dominican Republic. Pinewood Studios has its own production studio in the country to which further filming took place there. The surge in productions taking place in the country has been credited for by the reduction of Tax.

Will The I-Land be available to stream in 4K?
There’s no official confirmation at the time of writing, but it’s highly likely that The I-Land will be available to stream in 4K. This is because the previous two Originals produced by Nomadic Pictures, Wu Assassins and The Order, were shot in 4K.
Taking into consideration the cinematography that’s gone into the development of The I-Land it would be a waste not to.
Has Netflix released a trailer for The I-Land?

The I-Land will be available to stream on Netflix on the 12th of September, 2019. Surprisingly, the series release date is on a Thursday rather than a Friday. The significance of this is because the titles Netflix tend to have the most confidence in usually arrive on a Friday.
