Island-filmed TV series gets third season

Parts of Chesapeake Shores filmed in Parksville Qualicum Beach

The Hallmark Channel’s most-watched original TV show, which has been filmed in part in Parksville Qualicum Beach, will be returning for a third season.

On Saturday (Jan. 13), Chesapeake Shores was given the green light for a third season at the Crown Media Family Networks’ TV Critics Association winter press tour.

Parts of the first two seasons were filmed in Parksville Qualicum Beach, with sections of Second Avenue in Qualicum Beach proving a popular filming location.

“Viewers have fallen in love with the heartfelt and compelling storylines as each character navigates the complexities of life, love and choices,” said Michelle Vicary, executive vice-president of programming and network publicity for Crown Media Family Networks. “We look forward to continuing and further exploring the multi-generational family journeys that people of all ages can enjoy and relate to, which makes ‘Chesapeake Shores’ a fitting series for our brand and the quality, family entertainment we provide.”

Chesapeake Shores is based on the novel series of the same name by bestselling author Sherryl Woods. The show stars Meghan Ory, Jesse Metcalf, Treat Williams, Dianne Ladd and Barbara Niven.

The multi-generational family drama “Chesapeake Shores” follows Abby O’Brien (Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to twin daughters, as she adjusts to life back in her hometown of Chesapeake Shores.

Filming for the 10-episode third season is expected to start later this year, and the program is scheduled for a summer 2018 premiere.

Chesapeake Shores airs on the Hallmark Channel in the U.S., but on the W Network in Canada, with the season generally premiering a few weeks later than in the States. Hallmark Channel has stated the show is one its most-watched original series.
