Filming on the upcoming season of HBO’s hit comedy The Righteous Gemstones has been taking place in a variety of locations throughout Charleston. From the Citadel Mall to the Liberty Tap Room, here are some of the spots you’ll want to check out if you’re an avid fan of the show.

Citadel Mall

HBO has given the go-ahead for a second season of its wildly popular comedy series The Righteous Gemstones. The comedy follows the world-famous televangelist family of Eli Gemstone (John Goodman), his three immature children, Jesse (Danny McBride), Judy (Edi Patterson) and Kelvin (Adam DeVine), and their opulent lives funded by church donations.

The show was filmed in Charleston, North Charleston and other local locations. The main production studio is located at Citadel Mall, a regional shopping center located in West Ashley.

Azul Mexicano

There are plenty of places to get a feel for Mexico City in North Charleston. You can visit Hill-Rom Charleston, the Whirlin' Waters Adventure Park, Azul Mexicano and Eternal Father of the Sea Chapel.

In the opening scene of HBO's "The Righteous Gemstones," Keefe Chambers stares intently at a diner as Eli Gemstones, played by John Goodman, prepares to baptize his sons, Jesse (Danny McBride) and Kelvin (Adam DeVine). The restaurant is Azul Mexicano, which sits in the former Park Circle Athletic Club space.

The menu at Azul Tequila features fajita specials that are served sizzling hot with rice, beans, sour cream, pico de gallo and tortillas. You can also order five different kinds of Mexican soda, eight imported Mexican beers or several types of margaritas.

Early Bird Diner

A favorite of televangelists and their families, Early Bird Diner is a great place to grab a breakfast or brunch. The restaurant is known for its wildly imaginative dishes that combine wild ideas with elite-level cooking.

This Omaha breakfast eatery is also a popular stop for those seeking an alternative to the typical greasy spoon. The menu features everything from a country scramble to a corn cake benedict, with some insanely flavorful and creamy grits.

Some of the scenes in this show are filmed at local restaurants and bars, including Azul Mexicano in North Charleston. During one episode, Keefe Chambers (Tony Cavalero) stares intently at the establishment, basking in its supposed glory of God.

Liberty Tap Room

A popular HBO series, "The Righteous Gemstones," is filmed in various places across the Lowcountry. Some portions of the show were shot in Mount Pleasant, including Liberty Tap Room, a former steak house that's now an event venue.

The raucous comedy stars Danny McBride, John Goodman and Edi Patterson. The show follows the Gemstone family, a dysfunctional televangelist family that focuses on charitable work.

Liberty Tap Room is a local restaurant that serves creative twists on traditional American cuisine, alongside signature Liberty Ales and unique draft beer. It's an easy place to relax with friends and have a great meal or drink.

Trampoline Park

The righteous gemstones is filmed in North Charleston, SC. Aviation Square Shopping Center at 6185 Rivers Avenue and the North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center located at 5001 Coliseum Drive are some of the key filming locations used in the show.

In the first season of the righteous gemstones, Eli Gemstone (John Goodman) leads his family of televangelists through various endeavors to build a church in a local shopping mall. This results in a conflict with Rev. John Wesley Seasons (Dermot Mulroney) whose smaller church is threatened.

The baptism wave pool that opens the righteous gemstones was actually filmed at Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark in North Charleston. This location also served as a filming site for the famous “Chinese Baptism” episode in the series.
