Filming in Vancouver: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 3, Supernatural, and more

Yay! Lana Condor is back in town to shoot To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 3

Things are getting busy, busy, busy as today marks the start of three screen projects.

Two TV series and a Netflix feature are getting on set in town as we speak.

One of them is a crazy-popular teen romance, another is a superhero series that is the last of its related shows to get going, and another is a UFO investigation series that’s based on historical fact.

Meanwhile, there’s a wistful note as one of the longest-running series commences production on its final season.

So for details on what’s happening in Vancouver’s screen scene this week, join us after the jump…

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

Be still beating hearts, for it begins—To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 3 is scheduled to start production in Vancouver today (July 15) and will continue until August 20.

Following a shoot in New York City, the third movie in the series (most likely based on the third and final book in the series, Always and Forever, Lara Jean) is beginning the Vancouver leg of its filming schedule.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

The first film shot in 2017 in Vancouver as well as Portland, Oregon.

The sequel recently shot from March to May of this year—a release date hasn’t even been announced yet for the second movie while this third one is already underway.

The films are based on Jenny Han’s young adult romance book series.

Ross Butler

Lana Condor (Deadly Class) plays the lead character of Lara Jean Song Covey, whose secret love letters to her male crushes wind up in the hands of their recipients (even though they were never meant to be sent to them).

Janel Parrish

Cast members Noah Centineo, Janel Parrish, Anna Cathcart, Emilija Baranac, and John Corbett all returned for the second installation and were joined by Ross Butler and Jordan Fisher.

We’ll have to wait to see who is in the third film besides Condor and Centineo. And when it will be released.

Legends of Tomorrow

Moving on to other exciting news, a TV universe of superheroes is now fully in action.

With Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Catwoman already on set, there was just one Arrowverse show that was left to join the pack.

Legends of Tomorrow

Last but not definitely not least, Legends of Tomorrow begins shooting Season 5 today (July 15) and filming will keep going until January 29, 2020.

And here’s some scary news for you: a major villain is returning to the show this season.

Matt Ryan

Astra Logue (Olivia Swann), who was banished to hell after a failed exorcism by John Constantine (Matt Ryan), will return to battle Constantine.

Nick Zano

The cast includes Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Amy Louise Pemberton, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, and Maisie Richardson-Sellers.

Project Blue Book

Shifting to a historical sci-fi drama, yet another TV series is getting going today.

Project Blue Book starts shooting 10 episodes for Season 2 today (July 15) and runs until November 13.

This show is based on the real-life U.S. Air Force investigations into alleged UFO encounters and other inexplicable phenomenon in the 1950s and ‘60s.

Project Blue Book

Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones) stars as astrophysicist Dr. J. Allen Hynek who, along with Air Force Captain Michael Quinn (Michael Malarkey) examine unusual cases claiming to involve extraterrestrial activity—many of which challenge traditional scientific knowledge.

Ksenia Solo

The cast includes Laura Mennell, Ksenia Solo, Michael Harney, and Neal McDonough.


And alas, there’s some sad news to share in this roundup.

Almost as eternal as the undead creatures on the show, Supernatural starts filming 20 episodes for Season 15 on Thursday (July 18) and won’t call it a wrap until April 2, 2020.

Jared Padalecki

But it’s the last time it’ll call it a wrap.

Because, yes, this is finally the final season for what is currently the longest-running series filming in Vancouver.

Jensen Ackles

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins revealed in March that the 2019-2020 season would be the show’s last one.

Ackles will also serve as director for the fourth episode of this final season.

For one last hurrah, brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (Padalecki and Ackles), along with the angel Castiel (Collins) will continue their ongoing quest to battle evil supernatural creatures across the world.

Misha Collins

The season premiere will be on October 10.

Supernatural will join Arrow, which also began filming Season 8 last week, as long-time series that are shooting their last seasons in Vancouver.

So it looks like there will be many sad departures of familiar faces in the local filming industry.


That said, however, there are always new shows cropping up all the time, bringing in new faces and storylines, and we’ll cover them all as we continue on with our weekly coverage of what’s filming in Vancouver.
