The cast of Hallmark Channel's Chesapeake Shores

Filming has started on Season 6 of Hallmark Channel’s Chesapeake Shores. A Vancouver Island newspaper posted photos of the cast and crew shooting scenes for the next season of the series, which Hallmark confirmed would be the last.

“With a top-notch ensemble cast and creative team, Chesapeake Shores has shared stories that are relatable, poignant and unforgettable,” said Laurie Ferneau, senior vice programming of series, in a press release. “We look forward to honoring the journey viewers have been on with the O’Briens with one final, special season.”

The Parksville Qualicum Beach News reported that shooting would take place in different locations in the coming week.

The news confirms what one of the show’s stars had been hinting about on Instagram. Treat Williams posted a photo of his family last week, saying he would miss them when he went to Canada. Though Chesapeake Shores is set in coastal Maryland, the show is filmed on Vancouver Island.

On Friday, he shared a photo of a coastline with the caption, “Good morning. Dawn in the Pacific Northwest.”

“Omg are you filming Chesapeake?” one fan asked.

“Filming Season 6,” another wrote with prayer emojis.

Chesapeake Shores

Based on a series of books by Shery Woods, Chesapeake Shores debuted on Hallmark Channel in 2016. The show follows a single mother (Ory) who returns from New York City to her small hometown following a divorce. She reconnects with her ex Trace Riley (Jesse Metcalfe) and is thrown back into the drama of her large family.

Metcalfe surprised fans when he decided not to return for Season 5 of the series. In an interview with ET, he said it was time to move on.

”Life’s all about growth,” Metcalfe said. “I tend to put myself in challenging situations because I feel like that’s the fastest way to grow. No one saw this decision coming for me to leave Chesapeake, but sometimes the hardest decisions are the best ones to make and the ones that you grow the most from.”

Season 5 cliffhangers

The Season 5 finale of Chesapeake Shores aired in October. The episode included several cliffhangers. Meg (Barbara Niven) and Mick (Treat Williams) O’Brien began to argue after agreeing earlier in the season to reconcile. Mick appeared to have a growing addiction to painkillers following a plane accident.

Connor O’Brien (Andrew Francis) collapsed in the driveway of a suspected heart attack. Abby O’Brien (Meghan Ory) finally chose between the two men pursuing her, though the audience never found out which guy she picked.

Hallmark Channel has not announced when Season 6 of Chesapeake Shores will premiere. The last season premiered in August 2021.
