Hoping to catch a glimpse of a caped superhero in Gastown? Trying to unearth some spoilers from the hottest show of 2022?

Popular TV shows filming in-and-around Vancouver
Yellowjackets (season 2)
This award-nominated and critically acclaimed series (which jumps between teens in the 90s and present-day) follows the adult survivors of a plane crash. It combines several genres: coming-of-age, mystery, horror, psychological thriller — and makes for a compelling watch. It films in both Los Angeles and Vancouver. Past shooting locations include Finch’s Tea House, Holy Rosary Cathedral, the 2400 Motel and forested areas (if you’ve watched the show, you know why). Star Juliette Lewis does have a complaint with B.C. — she can’t find a satisfactory cold brew.
Filming until February 17, 2023.
Nancy Drew (season 4)
Nancy Drew seemed to be on the cusp of cancellation but was renewed for its fourth season. It often films in Horseshoe Bay, Port Coquitlam and North Vancouver.
Filming until December 15, 2022.
