These Big-Name Celebs Will Be In Vancouver In February & Here’s What They’re Filming

The production of films and shows is ramping up in B.C. in February, meaning many celebrities will be in and around Vancouver working on various projects.

Several beloved shows like Virgin River and The Last of Us are returning for another season and there are several other productions currently in the works.

So which celebs are in or heading to British Columbia where can you spot them?

Here are eight productions filming in the province in February and everything we know about each project.

The Last of Us

Season 2 of The Last Of Us is in production in Vancouver and several of the show’s stars have already been spotted in town.

Bella Ramsey and new cast members Isabela Merced and Young Mazino were seen dining at Zarak by Afghan Kitchen in Vancouver, seemingly confirming filming was underway.

In early January, Pedro Pascal was asked about the second season and whether it would deviate from the game the show is based on.

“I think that they’re always going to find ways to build on the incredible source material that they have, and surprise us with how they can use that material in a different format like a television show,” Pascal told Deadline. “But I wouldn’t want to spoil it for anybody, and the truth is, I don’t actually have all of the information as of yet.”

In early January fans got an update regarding the show, including the stars joining the cast: Isabela Merced who would be starring as Dina, Kaitlyn Dever as Abby and Young Mazino as Jesse.

Season 1 of the show was filmed around Alberta and in 2023 it was announced Season 2 would be moving its production to B.C.

The cast has previously shared their love of Canada and how much they enjoyed filming in Alberta so we’re hoping they love B.C. just as much!

Virgin River

Virgin River fans will be happy to know the cast is back in B.C. in February to work on Season 6.

In an Instagram story in late January, Alexandra Breckenridge, who plays Mel Monroe, confirmed she was packing for her three-month stay in Vancouver which would start in mid-February.

That means fellow cast members Martin Henderson, Tim Matheson and Ben Hollingsworth will also be in town.

Fans have already started a Reddit thread where they’ve been adding updates and theories about Season 6.

As for when the upcoming season of Virgin River will premiere has yet to be announced.

Seasons 1 to 5, which were also filmed in B.C., are available on Netflix.

Tron: Ares

Jared Leto is in Vancouver working on the third film in the Tron sci-fi franchise called Tron: Ares.

According to Deadline, the film will follow Ares (played by Leto) who is a fictional character that crosses over from the world of video games to planet Earth.

The film began shooting in Vancouver in 2023, but production was shut down due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, as per a report by Collider.

Greta Lee, Evan Peters, Jodie Turner-Smith, Gillian Anderson and Cameron Monaghan are also part of the cast.

Theo James will play the main character in a horror film called The Monkey, which is based on a short story by Stephen King, according to Deadline.

The outlet reports that the film will follow twin brothers Hal and Bill who find their dad’s old monkey toy in the attic. Following that discovery, a series of “gruesome deaths starts occurring all around them.” Deadline says the brothers toss away the toy and grow apart. However, they’re reunited after “mysterious deaths” start happening again.

Other cast members of the film have yet to be announced.

The movie will be filmed in Burnaby and production is scheduled to wrap up in mid-March.

The Good Doctor

The cast and crew of The Good Doctor is currently filming Season 7 of the series.

It was recently announced that the show would end with the seventh season and the lead cast member, Freddie Highmore, has shared how much it has meant to him to play Dr. Shaun Murphy.

“Playing Dr. Shaun Murphy has been an immense privilege and one of the most remarkable and rewarding experiences of my life,” Highmore said as per Variety.

“I will always be grateful to David, Liz, and Erin as well as the hugely talented – and lovely – cast, writers, and crew who made this show possible. Caring deeply is what got us here. Thank you to Sony and ABC, and to everyone who has watched along at home. With love from Vancouver… tequila, stat!”

Along with Highmore, the cast includes Paige Spara, Richard Schiff, Chuku Modu, and Fiona Gubelmann.

Season 7 will premiere on February 20.

The Recruit

Production of The Recruit Season 2 has been underway in Vancouver since January.

Several cast members of the Netflix show have been sharing behind-the-scenes pictures on social media since then, including Noah Centineo, Fivel Stewart and Angel Parker.

The series also stars Laura Haddock, Kaylah Zander, and Byron Mann.

Filming on Season 2 is scheduled to wrap up in March.

Netflix hasn’t announced when Season 2 will premiere, so we’ll have to stay tuned!

Superman & Lois

Season 4 of Superman & Lois, which stars Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, is in production in Vancouver.

Unfortunately, this season will be the final one for the CW show.

“As Superman embarks on his final flight, the team is leaving us with an absolutely epic 10-episode must-watch-every-minute farewell to one of the most legendary CW families ever,” Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment at the CW Network, told Variety.

A premiere date for Season 4 hasn’t been announced, but Variety reports it will air sometime in 2024.


Justin Hartley’s new CBS show Tracker is currently being filmed in Vancouver and the premiere date is coming up soon.

The first episode of Season 1 is set to air on February 11, following the Super Bowl, so fans don’t have to wait long.

Tracker follows Colter Shaw (played by Hartley) who travels the country in an RV as he helps police solve crimes and locate people who have gone missing.

The show also stars Mary McDonnell, Lee Tergesen, Oscar Chark and Nicole Anthony.
