What's Filming In Toronto: 9 Shows & Movies That Are Shooting In Toronto Next Year

Toronto's shutdown means movie theatres in the city are closed through the start of 2021, but there are still plenty of film sets that are open.

Both the province and the city keep up-to-date lists of what's filming in Toronto, which means you can keep track of which celebrities are coming to town to film.

Of course, there were productions that postponed their filming, like Guillermo del Toro's Nightmare Alley, which paused production in March according to Indiewire.

But the new year is just a few hours away, so here's a list of film and television productions filming in Toronto at the beginning of 2021.

The Handmaid's Tale

Starring: Elisabeth Moss and Yvonne Strahovski

Season four of the hit Hulu show is filming right now in Toronto. Parts of Ontario have been transformed into Gilead, the setting for the show, and they even filmed a grisly execution scene outside City Hall.

The most recent shoot is set to wrap in late April 2021.


Starring: Jason Momoa and Hera Hilmar

Jason Momoa has not been keeping a low profile in Toronto during filming — he's been spotted riding motorcycles, checking out local restaurants, and even stocking up on vinyl records.

His Apple TV+ show See is filming in Toronto until March 2021, but Momoa has more time in the city planned...


Starring: Jason Momoa and Kyle Chandler

Momoa's second project, Slumberland, is also filming in Toronto in 2021, wrapping up on May 31, 2021.

Not much is known about the film, which Deadline says takes inspiration from the 1989 animated movie Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland. Plot details are at a minimum, but maybe we'll learn more as the actors and film crews arrive in town!

The Boys

Starring: Karl Urban and Jack Quaid

Plenty of people have posted online about noticing Toronto landmarks in The Boys, an Amazon Prime TV show about superheroes.

It looks like that'll continue, as the third season of the show is filming in town until at least October 31, 2021. Keep your eyes in the sky for spandex, folks.

The Expanse

Starring: Cas Anvar and Dominique Tipper

The Expanse is a space show on the CW, and it's been shot in Toronto for a while now.

The show's sixth season is filming here until April 26, 2021, but some members of the cast might not be stoked to be here over the winter — like star Cas Anvar, who posted on Instagram last year and called Toronto "the North Pole."

The Umbrella Academy

Starring: Elliott Page and Emmy Raver-Lampman

You'd be forgiven for not knowing The Umbrella Academy is filming in Toronto right now — in the film listings on Ontariocreates.ca, the production is using the working name Chroma.

The cast and crew will be in town until August 17, 2021, filming the third season of the show.


Starring: Elliot Page and Paris Berelc

Page has been spending a lot of time in Toronto over the course of 2021, because he's also been filming an eSports film called 1UP that The Hollywood Reporter says is the first film out of Buzzfeed Studios.

Shooting started in November and runs until January 29, 2021.

Locke And Key

Starring: Emilia Jones and Connor Jessup

Late last year, Netflix original Locke & Keyturned the small Ontario town of Port Stanley into Matheson, Massachusetts.

And there might be more transformations to come, because the production is in Ontario until March 31, 2021.


Starring: Iain Glen and Alan Ritchson

The third season of Titans is filming right now, and like in seasons past, they're in Toronto.

According to Newsweek, the show's third season was expected to be released late in 2020, but seeing as though filming for the show ends in June 2021, it might be a while until fans can see full episodes.
