Filming in Vancouver: That’s a wrap for Sirens, The Crossing, Six—as Riverdale goes on hold

Olivia Munn, who previously shot The Predator in Vancouver, stars in the military drama TV series Six.

This week a number of TV series wrap up in Vancouver, and a dark teen drama has gone on hiatus.

All good things come to an end but in the case of what’s filming in Vancouver, that means that the shows are gearing up to hit a screen near year. Which is good news.

Eline Powell stars in Sirens

The first home screen production to call it a wrap on production this week is Siren.

The series started shooting the 10 episodes of its first season back on August 2 and finishes on Wednesday (November 22).

The series shot its TV pilot, originally called The Deep, in town back in September and October 2016.

Aylya Marzoff

The series takes the myth of mermaids back to their dark and dangerous roots in folklore.

In the coastal village of Bristol Cove, legend has it that mermaids once made their homes there. When a mysterious girl with dark secrets named Ryn (Eline Powell) shows up in town, a battle breaks out between humans and mermaids over the right to the ocean.

Marine biologist Ben, played by Alex Roe (The 5th Wave), and Maddie, played by Fola Evans-Akingbola (Death in Paradise), work together to understand why the mermaids have turned into predators.

The also cast includes Ian Verdun (Life’s a Drag) as a deep-sea fisherman, Sibongile “Sibo” Mlambo (Lost in Space) as a powerful mermaid, Sedale Threatt, Jr. (Hap and Leonard) as a warrior merman, Aylya Marzoff (Grandfathered) as the leader of the mermaid colony, and Rena Owen (Star Wars Episodes II and III) as the town eccentric who knows more about the mermaids than anyone is aware of.

The fantasy-thriller drama will premiere on March 29 on Freeform.

Sandrine Holt

Another TV series completing its debut season is The Crossing, which wraps up on Friday (November 24).

The sci-fi series, which started filming on July 25, also takes place in a small U.S. fishing town that changes after the arrival of others. But in this case, the 500 people washing up on shore are refugees—and only 47 survive.

But there’s a twist: they aren’t from another country but from a war-ravaged America from 250 years in the future.

As the townspeople try to figure out what to do, there’s a conspiracy at the heart of the mystery.

Steve Zahn

Steve Zahn plays the local sheriff, Sandrine Holt portrays a federal agent and mother searching for her missing daughter, and Rob Campbell is cast as a cerebral member of the surviving refugees.   

The cast also includes Natalie Martinez, Rick Gomez, Jay Karnes, Marcuis Harris, Simone Kessel, Kelly Missal, and more.

In Canada, the series will be broadcast on CTV in Canada and ABC in the U.S. A premiere date hasn’t been announced yet so stay tuned.

Six

Also on Friday, the military drama Six finishes shooting 10 episodes for its second season, which relocated from North Carolina and started filming on July 17.

The series follows Navy SEAL Team Six who were on a mission to hunt down a Taliban leader in Afghanistan. Things went awry when they discovered a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists. When their troop leader (Walter Goggins) was captured by the militant organization Boko Haram, the team had to put aside their differences to locate and rescue him.

Six

In Season 2, the cast expanded to include Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse) as a CIA operative, Eric Ladin (Mad Men) as an experienced but disruptive SEAL from another team, Jaylen Moore (The Night Shift) as an Afghan American sniper (a recurring character in Season 1), and Nikolai Nikolaeff (Fargo) as a Chechen/Jihadi mastermind. 

Recurring characters will be played by Erik Palladino (Suits), as the commander of SEAL Team Six, and Katherine Evans (The Killing), as a young woman at odds with the team

The cast also includes Kyle Schmid, Barry Sloane, Juan Pablo Raba, Edwin Hodge, Dominic Adams, Brianne Davis, Nadine Velazquez, Donny Boaz, and Nondumiso Tembe.

A premiere date for Season 2 hasn’t been announced yet.

Camila Mendes plays Veronica on Riverdale

Meanwhile, Riverdale audiences will be interested to know that Season 2 is currently on hiatus for a temporary break that started on November 18 and will continue until Sunday (November 26). So that should give the show’s stalkers—oops, fans—a chance to take a break from their Archie-hunting activities. 

The TV teen drama series, based on Archie Comics, is slated to continue shooting until March 21.

And for the moment, that’s all the news we have for what’s going on in Vancouver’s screen scene. But check back in with us in the near future for more of the latest developments in Hollywood North.
