‘Goosebumps’ Series Stars Spotted Filming in Ditmas Park


By Adam Daly, Brooklyn Paper

“Friends” star David Schwimmer was spied filming the latest season of Disney Plus’ “Goosebumps” in Ditmas Park on Friday.

Parking for locals in the area was restricted since the shoot began on Wednesday, as Mesquite Productions took over at least nine blocks from Marlborough Road to East 17th Street between Ditmas Avenue and Foster Avenue.

The anthology series, based on R.L Stine’s bestselling novels, sees Schwimmer, best known for portraying Ross in “Friends,” star as a divorced parent of two teenagers who find themselves embroiled in the mystery behind the disappearance of five teens in 1994, per Deadline.

On Friday, April 5, Schwimmer was photographed filming alongside his Season 2 castmates, Ana Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Jayden Bartels (“Side Hustle”), and Sam McCarthy (“Dead to Me”).

Filming wrapped up for the weekend on Friday, and is believed to be continuing sometime next week. Details could not be confirmed at the time of publication.

Southern Brooklyn has been a hot spot for location filming lately, with actress Amanda Seyfried glimpsed with fans in Dyker Heights last month as she shot the new Peacock series “Long Bright River,” based on the New York Times bestseller of the same name.
