Season 2 of REGINALD THE VAMPIRE With Jacob Batalon Starts Filming in Victoria
Remember the Slushy Shack in Saanich? Reginald the Vampire with Jacob Batalon starts filming season 2 of the Syfy series in Victoria.
Victoria filming dates: April 03 2023 – July 11 2023.
It’s a very zany and quirky — but lovable! — show. It’s sort of like watching a human being go through all the human things, like trying to establish relationships and finding a friend and finding your place in the universe . . .but all in the backdrop of becoming a vampire. – Jacob Batalon to Jimmy Fallon.
Adapted fromJohnny B. Truant’s comic book series, Reginald the Vampire tells the story of Reginald Baskin (Jacob Batalon) who finds himself an unwelcome member of a world of fit, beautiful, self-obsessed vampires. He deals with a bully manager at work, a girl he loves but can’t be with and a vampire chieftain who wants him dead.
Reginald was a put-upon employee at the local Slushy Shack before becoming a vampire.
Reginald the Vampire filmed in Victoria, B.C. in the Fall of 2021 and Winter of 2022 when “the cast & crew had to deal with a LOT of rain while filming”. Spring 2023 should be drier.

Watched the filming of Reginald The Vampire and even got a picture with @lifeisaloha and his doppelgänger for the movie. The exterior of the building the crew added to the building that was already there. They did an awesome job at making it look the way it does pic.twitter.com/gPYqtiEmhS— robin / spinach (@introvefangirl) February 9, 2022
