Filming in Vancouver: Home Before Dark, Midnight Mass, and TV series to go on holiday hiatuses

Supernatural, shooting its last season, will be among the TV series going on break for the holiday season.

There aren’t any new productions getting started just before the holiday season.

But there are plenty on their way in 2020.

Two TV series that will be starting up in the new year, with one returning and another as a new addition to the local screen scene.

And even though we’re entering the season of gift-giving and renewal with visions of sugar plums and whatnot, these series delve into realms of the dark and mysterious.

Here’s a quick look at who and what’s coming to town—besides Santa Claus, of course.

Brooklynn Prince

The tween mystery drama Home Before Dark will be coming back to Vancouver to shoot Season 2 from January 27 to June 17

Season 1 of this Apple TV series shot in Vancouver until April of this past year.

The show is based on the life of pre-teen journalist Hilde Lysiak from Pennsylvania.

Brooklynn Prince (The Florida Project) stars as a young girl who moves from a big city to her father’s small lakeside town where she unearths a cold case that many locals have been trying to keep a secret—including her own father.

Jim Sturgess

The cast includes Jim Sturgess, Abby Miller, Louis Herthum, Keifer O’Reilly, Michael Weston, Kylie Rogers, Aziza Scott, and more.

A release date hasn’t been announced yet so keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground.

Aziza Scott

Later on, the new Midnight Mass will film seven episodes of Season 1 from March 16 to July 8.

This Netflix horror series will chronicle what happens in an isolated island community after a mysterious and charismatic young priest arrives and miraculous events and scary omens begin to take place.

Mike Flanagan

It’ll be directed by Mike Flanagan who will executive produce it alongside Trevor Macy, who are the pair behind The Haunting of Hill House, which also shoots in Vancouver (Season 2 of that anthology series is The Haunting of Bly Manor).

The cast hasn’t been announced yet so we’ll have to wait to see who this production brings to the city.

In the meantime, a number of TV series will be going on hiatuses for the holiday season in the upcoming weeks.
