Christmas Chronicles

Wait, is it Christmas already?

Breathe easy—it’s still a few months away so you still have time for holiday preparations.

But Vancouver’s screen scene is getting into seasonal spirit in a variety of ways and for a variety of occasions.

Fit for the creepiness of the Halloween season, a classic anthology series that explores what-ifs, alternate realities, and the inexplicable is gearing up to shoot its second season.

Also back for a second season is a dystopian thriller about humans surviving on a train after the world freezes over.

And although it’s not even Halloween yet, there’s a sequel to a smash-hit Christmas movie that will turn local streets into holiday time.

Here’s a quick look at what’s shooting this week in Vancouver and in the weeks to come.

This week’s round up of what’s going in Vancouver’s screen scene is divided into matters of the heart—and matters of the dark.

On the lighter side of things, there’s a feature romcom that’s wrapping up after spending a month in town.

But while that one leaves, there’s a romantic drama TV series starting work on its second season.

On the murkier side of things, a TV movie is underway about how a community tries to continue on after being shaken by the murder of a teenage girl.

And the second season of an anthology series, that began with a handless teen who escaped from a cult, is embarking upon its second season with a new storyline and cast.

Filming in Vancouver: G.I. Joe spin-off Snake Eyes, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, and Close Up

Could Henry Golding be coming to Vancouver to star in a film?

For our weekly roundup of what’s filming in Vancouver, sometimes there’s a common theme running through all the TV and film productions.

But this isn’t one of those weeks.

In fact, this week’s collection of screen productions wildly runs the gamut from a mystery-drama to a martial-arts action blockbuster to a musical fantasy dramedy TV series (now there’s something you don’t hear every day).

It’s quite the mix—but that’s the way things go when it comes to the entertainment industry.

So on that note, here’s a brief overview of what’s—and who’s—on set this week and in the weeks to come.

Filming in Vancouver: Hilary Swank, When Calls the Heart, The 100, and more

Some recent trends in TV series have been superheroes, witches, and—babysitters?

Yes, the formidable sitter of babies and children is getting a lot of attention in screen projects as of late, with a new Netflix movie starting production this week.

Meanwhile, three TV series start up this week.

One is a sci-fi drama starring a two-time Oscar winner and embarking upon its first season.

Another is also a sci-fi drama, but this one is the polar opposite: it’s starting in on its final season.

Completely different from those two is a romance-drama set in a Western Canadian frontier town.

And there’s also a TV movie based upon a real-life scandal.

If any of this intrigues you, read on for what’s going on in Vancouver’s screen scene this week.

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.

Well, that’s Vancouver for you.
