ELBURN – They’re back! HBO crews are returning to Elburn for more filming of its new series, Lovecraft Country.
On Friday, Aug. 24, the road will be closed along Main Street (IL Rt 47) in downtown Elburn from 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. A posted detour off Rt. 47 will be the same as the closure earlier this summer, utilizing Anderson road via Rt. 38 to the north and Keslinger Rd. to the south.
Access to local businesses and residences will be allowed. Officials have indicated that filming will pause during school transport times to allow school buses to pass.
Drivers should expect some delays accessing that area downtown on Friday.
HBO originally visited Elburn for filming in July, when the production company transformed
the business facades along Route 47 into the Main Street of a circa 1955 town, to film its dramatic horror television series.
