Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ “Miracles of Christmas” launch Oct. 22.
With Halloween in the way, of course what we all want to know is when will the Hallmark Christmas movies be headed our way! Seriously though, Hallmark can’t even wait till November 1st to start the flannel made for TV movie mania. Starting October 22nd there will be 41 Hallmark originals every Friday for the “Countdown to Christmas” and “Miracles of Christmas” programming events on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Even though we all know that the story lines are basically the same and that Hallmark probably has stock in flannel shirts, we just can’t stop ourselves from tuning in.
If you love the past movies and cast you will be excited for the return of fan-favorite stars as well as multiple mini cast reunions.
Oct. 22., Danica McKellar will reunite with her former Wonder Years costar Jason Hervey in You, Me & The Christmas Trees. The following month, Candace Cameron Bure teams up with her former Fuller House costar John Brotherton for The Christmas Contest.
Former Back to the Future castmates Lea Thompson and Christopher Lloyd are set to make an onscreen reunion in Next Stop, Christmas, which also features How I Met You Mother‘s Lyndsy Fonseca and Days of Our Lives‘ Chandler Massey. Sisters Ashley Williams and Kimberly Williams-Paisley will star alongside each other in two different interconnected movies.
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ “Miracles of Christmas” programming featuring even more holiday-themed films, including The Christmas Bond starring Holly Robinson Peete and The Christmas Promise with Torrey DeVitto.
This season, Hallmark Channel is also welcoming a new host of faces. The additions include Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams, Jordin Sparks, Ashleigh Murray, Loretta Devine, Luke James, Basil Wallace, Katee Sackhoff, Patrick Sabongui and Terry O’Quinn.
