Paramount+ series Rabbit Hole has been spotted in Toronto recently filming for its first season. The new spy series will star none other than 24‘s Kiefer Sutherland, who also serves as an executive producer, and locals are quite literally seeing him pop up all over town.

Being referred to on Twitter as “Kiefermania” or “Kiefer Madness,” many are catching Sutherland in action on the streets of downtown Toronto lately and absolutely loving it!

Filming for the series has been underway since May and production is expected to continue into September. The plot line for Rabbit Hole will be about a man named John Weir, played by Sutherland, who is a a private espionage operator that ends up getting framed for murder by powerful forces, and evidently turns his whole world upside down.

Full casting was recently announced and the series will also star Charles Dance, Meta Golding, Jason Butler Harner, and Rob Yang among others.

Multiple city locations have been used to shoot including Dundas square, the Financial District, Shangri-La Toronto and more. Filming for Rabbit Hole has quite literally transformed the streets of Toronto into New York City, and is giving all those Big Apple vibes.

Another filming location used a couple weeks ago was at Adelaide and Spadina. The series was spotted filming for a 911 fire scene, and many caught a glimpse of all the action — police cars, firetruck, sirens and all!

Back in May, Rabbit Hole was filming at Dundas and Victoria Street, where the Toronto Met was transformed into a NYC police station. Out front a shawarma stand was pictured, showing the great detail involved with Rabbit Hole’s set and making it feel even more like authentic New York.

Sutherland was spotted in action at Adelaide and York Street, where Toronto Filming managed to capture a quick video of him pretending to enter a fake subway station.

Filming took place in May outside the Fairmont Royal York Hotel and Sutherland can be seen behind the wheel for a particular scene. It appears actor Rob Yang also joined him on set that day.

While an official release date has not been announced yet, its predicted that Rabbit Hole will be available to stream on Parmount+ sometime later this year. In the meantime, be on the lookout downtown — you just never know when you might catch Sutherland again in action!
