Zac Efron is filming the second season of Down to Earth in Australia.

The outlet suggested the production could kick off in August, in either New Zealand or Australia amid widely-publicised reports Efron has taken up residency Down Under.

He met his current girlfriend Vanessa Valladares after meeting at Byron Bay General Store in June. Efron appears to have no intentions of moving back to the states after deciding to put his LA home on the market.

"As of now, he has no plans to live permanently in L.A. again," a source previously told People. "He loves Australia and considers it his home."

Efron is currently shooting the second season of the TV show Down to Earth for Netflix. Crowe most recently starred in the movie, Unhinged.
