Like the MatchMaker Mysteries movies before it, this one was filmed in Canada. During filming, McKellar tagged one of her photos as being in Vancouver. The previous movie was also filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, according to IMDb.
McKellar shared that it was snowing while they were filming in January and February. On one day, she had to wear a heavy coat just to walk to the set.

They had a lot of fun on set too, including joking about how tall Webster is.
Her son Draco was with her while she was quarantining before the movie. She called him “the best workout buddy ever.”
Webster joked about his “masterful folder-flipping technique” for filming.
