This April Toronto will give itself over to two of Canada’s most popular shows, and a slew of movies the world is sure to embrace.

Get the low down below on six of the most interesting productions in the city.

Suits TV Show | Season 7

Filming: April 4, 2017 to November 15, 2017

Beloved legal drama Suits is back in Toronto. In its first year, the city welcomed the show with open arms, and it has returned every year since to shoot. Season seven is no different.

Your chances of meeting Harvey Specter have increased. Don’t let your dreams be dreams.

Schitt’s Creek TV Show | Season 4

Filming: April 10, 2017 to June 28, 2017

Schitt’s Creek became a runaway hit for acclaimed comedic actor Eugene Levy, and for his MuchMusic VJ-turned-actor Dan Levy. Along with Catherine O’Hara, a comedic legend in her own right, and Annie Murphy, relative newcomer with staying power, they return to Toronto shoot a fourth, highly anticipated season.

Schitt’s Creek is one of only a few notably Canadian shows that have become crossover hits in the States, which is not only a blessing but also a testament to Schitt’s Creek‘s appeal.

Never Saw It Coming Feature Film

Filming: March 23, 2017 to April 12, 2017

Never Saw It Coming is a suspense thriller about a manipulative psychic who finds herself more deeply involved in a murder case than she ever wished to be.

The film is set to star Emily Hampshire, a Canadian actress with some impressive credits, including roles on Man Seeking Woman12 Monkeys, and none other than Schitt’s Creek.

Look out for the film early 2018.

Air Farce Canada 150 | TV Special

Filming: March 3, 2017 to June 9, 2017

The sly Canadian comedy troupe Royal Canadian Air Farce has promised to come out of retirement and give us two specials, one of which will air on Canada Day, and the other on New Years Eve, recreating one of their old traditions.

There’s no telling if it’ll be completely new, if they’ll resurrect characters and sketches, or some form of both.

Now all we have to do is wait.

Stockholm Feature Film

Filming: April 10, 2017 to May 20, 2017

If you haven’t heard of Stockholm yet, you soon will. Ethan Hawke (Before MidnightBoyhood) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy) are set to star in the film, a crime movie based on the true story of a heist in Stockholm in 1973, where hostages bonded with their captors. If this sounds familiar, it’s because this is where the term “Stockholm Syndrome” began.

Look for it some time next year.

Condor TV Show | Season 1

Filming: April 23, 2017 to August 15, 2017

Condor, a TV series based on the famous conspiracy thriller 1970s film Three Days of the Condor begins shooting in Toronto. Megastars Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway led the film, and legend Sydney Pollack directed it.

Those are big shoes to fill. No confirmed casting details have been released at this time.

But keep a keen eye out.
