Hallmark isn’t holding back this year with its slate of Christmas movies!
The network announced on Wednesday its ambitious plan to debut 23 new movies over the holidays, with Hallmark Movies & Mysteries premiering an additional 17, bringing the total to 40 films. This is exactly how many Christmas movies were outputted by the network in 2019.
The global health crisis hasn’t seemed to slow down their production too much this year. Many of the Hallmark Channel’s upcoming Christmas releases wrapped filming earlier in the year and production is currently ramping up on many other films that are planned to shoot in the second half of 2020.
There are many Hallmark Channel familiar faces in 2020’s Christmas lineup. Candace Cameron Bure will star in If I Only Had Christmas while Tamera Mowry-Housley will star in Christmas Carnival. Lacey Chabert will star in a Christmas Waltz whileHolly Robinson Peete stars in Christmas in Evergreen 4.
Some other new films include Cross Country Christmas, Christmas Tree Lane, A Royal Holiday, and Holly & Ivy.
Hallmark also gave a sneak peek trailer of Christmas in Vienna, starring Sarah Drew and Brennan Elliott that was shot on location. The story follows a concert violinist Jess (Drew) who journeys to Vienna for a performance, but along the way she discovers musical and romantic inspiration.
