It officially snows in July in Toronto! That’s right, you didn’t read it wrong.
While the snow may not necessarily be actual, it was truly a winter wonderland in downtown Toronto last week.

The set is part of an Apple TV+ production for a fantasy/horror series Unlikely Valentinebased on the parental fable by Clint Eastwood The changing.
The series stars LaKeith Stanfield (get out, Selma) and is scheduled to run until September 13, 2022 in several North American cities such as New York, Jersey City and of course Toronto.

A description of the show states that “the drama focuses on the death-defying odyssey of Apollo Kagwa and Emma Valentine as they seek to find out what happened to the son who was taken from them”.

Several photos posted on Twitter show Toronto turning into a freezing New York City near Leader Lane and Colborne Street, just downtown.

Some images show icy patches of snow on the ground, classic horror streetlights, and even New York’s signature yellow cabs.

Although it may not snow anytime soon in Toronto, the plateau of Unlikely Valentine certainly conjures up bitter memories of the city’s brutal winters.
