Vancouver’s film scene is buzzing! In the past few years, the city has morphed into a variety of backgrounds for popular productions on the big and small screens – and there’s even more to look forward to coming up. Below are five productions gearing up to film, or currently filming, that we can’t wait to binge.
The Haunting of Nancy Drew Rumoured to be just as supernatural, dramatic and chill-inducing as similar throwbacks Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Haunting of Nancy Drew stars newcomer Kennedy McMann as the 18-year-old budding sleuth. Though Nancy dreams of moving away from her hometown, a family tragedy forces her to stay – and, of course, she soon becomes wrapped up in a new mystery. We can’t wait to watch our favourite brainy, independent and courageous detective come to life.

The Hypnotist’s Love Story Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel Big Little Lies became an HBO hit thanks to a superstar cast and juicy plotline. We’re confident The Hypnotist’s Love Story will follow suit: the enthralling tale involves a hypnotist who falls in love with a man she meets online, who turns out to carry some heavy baggage – a stalker ex-girlfriend who’s followed him for years. The series stars Heather Graham and Jane Seymour.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 2 We fell in love with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before when it was released to an overwhelmingly positive reception on Netflix – and we’re not alone. Thanks to all the audience love, Netflix and Paramount have teamed up to release part two. Lana Candor and Noah Centineo return as Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky, and the dreamy character of John Ambrose McClaren will appear to stir up drama as well.

Limetown Lia Haddock, investigate reporter for American Public Radio, stumbles across the story of a lifetime when she delves into the disappearance of more than 300 people at a neuroscience research facility in Tennessee. Her story is played out on hit podcast Limetown, which debuted in July 2015 – and, a mere two months later, it became the number-one downloaded podcast on iTunes. Now, Facebook has teamed up with Endeavour Content, Iron Ocean Productions and Midnight Radio to bring Limetown to life with a 10-episode season debuting later this year on Facebook Watch. The series stars Jessica Biel and Stanley Tucci, and promises to be just as juicy as the pod.

See Though details of Apple’s futuristic sci-fi drama See have been kept under wraps, the details we know point to a binge-worthy epic: Jason Mamoa stars as fearless warrior Baba Voss; the director is Francis Lawrence, who directed The Hunger Games; and the lead writer is Steven Knight, who created Netflix hit Peaky Blinders. With all those big names tied to one project, you can bet we’ll be glued to the TV.
