Sundance film set
It's not the first time the Sundance Pub has been converted into an American tavern for a TV series or movie.

A popular Ladner location for movie and TV series is bustling again with activity this week.

Season three of the Freedom/Hulu series Motherland: Fort Salem began shooting at the Sundance Pub and Inn on Tuesday night and will conclude in the early hours of Thursday morning. Bear Claw Productions Ltd. will be back again at the East Ladner location on Dec. 10 to shoot another scene.

The American supernatural drama series stars Taylor Hickson, Jessica Sutton and Ashley Nicole Williams as three witches conscripted into the U.S. Army. They train in combat magic and use their vocal cords to enact "seeds" or "seed sounds", layering vocal sounds to create powerful spells.

The series takes place in a women-dominated world in which the U.S. ended persecution of witches 300 years ago during the Salem witch trials after an agreement known as the Salem Accord.

The Vancouver-filmed series was renewed for a third season back in August with filming expected to wrap up in March 2022.

The Sundance has been used for several productions in the past year including the ABC hit crime series Big Sky and the Netflix movie The Adam Project, starring Ryan Reynolds and Jennifer Garner.
