One of the biggest cities in western Canada is a hotspot for filming shows and movies, becoming the temporary home to so many famous faces in the entertainment industry. Better yet, Vancity has produced incredibly successful celebrities like Seth Rogen, the Property Brothers, and Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard. If you live in the area, keep your eyes open because the TV shows being filmed in Vancouver right now means there are so many big celebs in the area. 

According to What's Filming, most of the shows are currently on a hiatus until November 29, likely because of American Thanksgiving, but will be back in production by next week.
