Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is premiering its latest “Aurora Teagarden” installment, “Haunted by Murder,” on Sunday, February 21, at 9 p.m. Eastern/8 p.m. Central. Candace Cameron Bure, Niall Matter, Lexa Doig, and Marilu Henner are starring. Candace’s daughter Natasha Bure and Lexa’s daughter Mia Shanks are also starring. Read on to learn all about the cast and where the newest movie was filmed.

‘Haunted by Murder’ Was Filmed in Canada

As with all the “Aurora Teagarden Movies,” the newest installment was also filmed in Canada, Parade reported. The movies typically film in the Vancouver region. The cast shared numerous fun behind-the-scenes stories about filming.

In early December, Bure shared in an Instagram story that they finally had a sunny day in Vancouver while filming for this movie.

She said: “We have the sunshine today in Vancouver. Anyone that lives here knows it’s been storming so much, but like this is revitalized when we finally have sun for the first time. I’ve been working on a brand new Aurora Teagarden Mystery. That’s why I haven’t been on story that much for the past few weeks, because I’m working hard. But I’m so happy, I’m so happy!”

Back in October, a casting post by Candice Elzinga was put up for the movie filming in Canada. This is the 18th Aurora Teagarden film.

Bure told ET Online that she and executive producer Jim Head had been discussing the idea of a movie featuring Natasha Bure and Mia Shanks as Aurora and Sally’s teenage-versions for quite some time.

“We thought of this concept… and we thought about it for so long and with Lexa, we kept thinking ‘Our daughters look so much like [us]!'” she said. “So for maybe two years we were thinking, ‘We have to make some flashback scene! We have to have Natasha and Mia do this.'”

Bure said that she and Doig gave their daughters lots of stage notes on how to portray them on the day of filming. She said their biggest advice was that their daughters were “too cool” and the young Aurora and Sally needed to be more “dorky.”

In December, Jim Head posted on the Aurora Teagarden account, noting: “2am. An atmospheric river rages outside. Valiant cast and crew soldier on. I take refuge in the tent, because I am weak. The glamour of film.”

In November, major flooding had affected some Aurora Teagarden filming locations.

This Aurora Teagarden movie was filmed from November 22 to December 11, 2021, QC Approved shared.

They had a great time filming.
