He also shared this group picture of the boys from “Chesapeake Shores.”
This video on the Vancouver Island CTV News depicted a very bittersweet last season of filming. Not only was the crew feeling emotional, but the area itself has been hosting the show for six seasons. Because of this, many of the local residents had gotten used to seeing the crew and had made new friends along the way. The region also benefited from the filming industry.
“We hate to see something that’s been so beneficial to the region and the growth of our film industry coming to an end,” said Joan Miller, film commissioner for the North Island Film Commission.
ChekNews also reported about the filming of the sixth season.
“Now our crew base has grown,” Miller told ChekNews. “Our training has grown. Our region is really setting the benchmark for how to build a local crew and how to provide qualified training. Chesapeake Shores really helped us get to the next stage.”
Every season of “Chesapeake Shores” injects between $5 and $10 million into the economy of the mid-island, ChekNews shared.
Matt Drake, producer of the series, spoke with the Vancouver Island Free Daily about filming the final season.
“We have people that have been on this show since the very beginning, in season one,” Drake said. “A lot of crew have been around for four-plus years, so it’s really like a special family of people and we really enjoy shooting it, so overall I think everyone is feeling a little sad that it’s the end.”
