Filming in Vancouver: The Good Doctor, Another Life, Brand New Cherry Flavor, and more

Rosa Salazar stars in Brand New Cherry Flavor

Now here’s a rarity—Vancouver is getting a chance to play itself. Can you believe it?

After all, Vancouver is constantly playing cities ranging from Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles to New York City (yes, it’s true), Tokyo, Star City, and alien metropolises.

But a new TV show will give our fair city a fair chance at playing its fair self.

There are also two investigative sci-fi dramas coming this way—one is a returning series while the other is a pilot for a possible new show.

Meanwhile, a revenge thriller that delves into the horrors of supernatural Hollywood is calling it a wrap, along with a hit medical drama.

So with all that going on, here’s this week’s roundup of what’s filming on the streets of Vancouver.

Jake Manley stars in The Order.

As the days grow darker, so do some of the productions filming in Vancouver.

This week’s roundup of what’s coming and going from the local screen scene spans horror, mystery, fantasy, and the supernatural—with a little comedy in the mix to prove that we’re not without a sense of humour.

There’s a movie about a babysitter out to fight monsters to get her stolen charge back, and a college student who becomes educated in the magical dark arts to fight werewolves.

Meanwhile, a potential new TV series will be a mystery about what happens when several high-school students enter detention but one does not survive.

For more on all this intrigue and creepiness, see you after the jump.

Vancouverites know a thing or two about rain. And one of our little rain secrets is that hiking in it is actually pretty fun. Zip yourself into a rain jacket, then head out into the forest. It’s extra green when it rains, the waterfalls really get going, and the fog makes for some great moody photo moments. Here are our top picks for rainy day hikes in Vancouver.

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

Lana Condor will star in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 3

We’ve got horror, we’ve got romance, we’ve got dark comedy, and—yes, folks—we’ve even got witchy supernatural drama.

What are we talking about? Why, Vancouver’s screen scene, of course.

In this week’s roundup of what’s filming, there’s a freaky scarefest about high-school students being pursued by a serial killer while on the flip-side, there’s a romcom about the travails of the heart during high school.

Meanwhile, a recovering alcoholic blusters his way through the third season of a comedy TV series while a trio of witches gear up to fight for America (and no, we’re not talking about Charmed).

The Vancouver screen scene is in a perpetual state of flux, where everything is constantly coming and going.

Such is the case with this week’s roundup of what’s filming in the city.

While a new TV series and a movie are calling it a wrap this week, there’ll be a new TV series and another movie coming this way next month to fill the gap.

From WWE wrestling stars to Santa Claus, and from a talking emotional-support dog to a ghostly rock band, it seems like the projects shooting in the city have covered quite the hodgepodge of subject matter.

Well, that’s Vancouver for you.

And for more details about all of this, see you after the jump.
