It’s now November first, which means the 10th anniversary of Hallmark’s beloved Countdown to Christmas is officially in full swing. This month, between two networks, over twenty all-new Christmas romances debut, which is a lot, with plenty more to come in December. Today we take a look at the new Hallmark Christmas schedule 2019, part 1.
Along with plenty of sweet romance (because what else is Hallmark better known for?), you’ll see lots of familiar faces including Rachel Boston, Sam Page, Kristoffer Palohma, and many more! Plus, this month includes the multi-night Thanksgiving premiere week event.
Included in this little “preview” is a look at the new to Hallmark Movies and Mysteries as well. So, needless to say, there’s a plethora of new premieres happening in November on Hallmark Channel. Make sure your DVR is cleared, and ready! Hang the mistletoe and snuggle in for the new holiday cheer.
Let’s cut my rambling commentary, and get right into what you can see on Hallmark this month.
HALLMARK CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE 2019, PART 1 ROMANCE: New Hallmark Romance
While I do my best to ensure these dates/titles are accurate, dates, titles or times are subject to change; be sure to check HallmarkChannel.com for the most up to date schedule. I’ll also update here if I see any changes. See updates below!
1: Merry & Bright – November 2
In his first Christmas original of the season (yes, he’ll appear in a second one later this year), Andrew Walker co-stars with Jodie Sweetin in this romance of (first impression) mistaken identities. Review to come.
2: Christmas Scavenger Hunt – Novmeber 3
Kevin McGarry teams up with newcomer Kim Shaw in this story about two exes forced to work together on a scavenger hunt! Review to come.
3: Picture a Perfect Christmas – November 9
Did you know this one is based on a novel by Terri Reed? I didn’t! Raise your hand if you once read 101 Love Inspired books (a line Terri wrote for). A returning career minded woman ends up helping a neighbor of her grandmother’s over the holiday season, and of course, as these stories do, a romance soon blossoms. Jon Cor and Merritt Patterson are the co-leads! Review to come.
4: The Mistletoe Secret – November 10
Returning to the Hallmark Channel is Kellie Pickler (for her second starring role!) in what sounds to be a sweet love story involving a love triangle. Tyler Hynes co-stars.
5: Christmas Under the Stars – November 16
Two of my favorite Hallmark stars, Jesse Metcalfe and Autumn Reeser reunite (A Country Wedding) in this one, a story that’s sure to be as charming as its title suggests. Metcalfe plays a career minded businessman, while Reeser plays an astronomy teacher with a great deal more hope than Metcalfe’s Nick.
6: Write Before Christmas – November 17
Another one that sounds charming. The newly single Jessica sends out Christmas cards to five of the influential people in her life in a story that sounds as if it could be (but isn’t!) a best-friends-to-romance love story. Torrey DeVitto and Chad Michael Murray star. Review to come.
7: Christmas at Graceland: Home for the Holidays – November 23
Though it’s set to follow new characters, no doubt this third installment in the ‘Graceland’ movies will have the same feeling as its predecessors.
8: Cherished Memories: A Gift to Remember 2 –November 24
Ali Liebert and Peter Porte return in the sequel to their 2017 “charming and bookish” seasonal romance, A Gift to Remember.
9: A Christmas Duet – November 25
This one boasts new faces to Hallmark, and is a story about a former musician duo who went separate ways years ago. Of course, in the present fate brings them back together. Despite the familiar plot, I have to say, this one sounds really good.
10: Check Inn to Christmas – November 26
From the beauty of ‘Fall Harvest’ (Over the Moon in Love) to a quaint Christmas Inn, Wes Brown returns in a new story, this time with Hallmark favorite Rachel Boston.
11: The Christmas Club – November 27
Based on a novel by Barbara Hinske, this one brings together two strangers in the pursuit of helping someone reclaim something that was stolen.
12: Christmas at the Plaza – November 28
Hallmark’s Mr. Darcy (Unleashing Mr. Darcy) Ryan Paevey returns to the Christmas lineup in this charming new flick.
13: Christmas in Evergreen, Tidings of Joy – November 29
The third in the ‘Evergreen’ series, this one has fan favorites like Maggie Smith, Holly Robinson-Peete, Paul Greene, Jill Wagner, Barbara Niven, and MORE!
14: Christmas in Rome – November 30
Lacey Chabert makes her return to the festive fun playing an american tour guide in Rome who shows the city to a businessman contemplating the purchase of a company. Sam Page is her co-star.
HALLMARK CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE 2019, PART 1: HALLMARK MOVIES AND MYSTERIES
If a story with more of an emotional impact is your thing, then this sister network and their “Miracles of Christmas” campaign is for you. In November you can see the following new premieres.
1: Two Turtle Doves – November 1
Nikki DeLoach and Michael Rady reunite (Love to the Rescue) for this Christmas drama about a woman who, while searching for an heirloom, meets a single father and his daughter, both of whom find their way into her heart. Review to come – FRIDAY!!
2: A Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas – November 7
Hallmark familiar faces Rachael Leigh Cook and Benjamin Ayres co-star in this romance. It follows Willow (how much do I love this name… a lot!) as she returns home to help with her sister’s wedding, and of course, while there, she meets a single dad.
3: Holiday for Heroes – November 8
Old-fashioned romance is the driving force of this story. Marc Blucas plays a returning soldier who unexpectedly meets with the woman with whom he exchanged letters with for the past year. (This one makes me think of the Hallmark classic A Christmas Card, and I am here for it.)
4: A Christmas Miracle – November 14
Tamera Mowry- Housley returns in this new romantic drama about a single mom, and the colleague who may end up stealing her heart.
5: A Godwink Christmas, Meant for Love – November 17
Kathie Lee Gifford returns to co-produce and co-star in this sequel to A Godwink Christmas. Cindy Busby also joins the cast as a new character.
6: Holiday Hearts – November 23
This one stars Ashley Williams and Paul Campbell.
7: Our Christmas Love Song – November 24
Fan favorite Alicia Witt headlines this one.
8: Sense, Sensibility & Snowmen – November 30
As its title would suggest, this one is a re-telling (with a festive twist!) of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. Plus, as a Hallmarkie bonus, Erin Krakow will play the leading lady.
Come December, they’ll be a ‘part 2’ with the rest of the new premieres, and yes, there are more! In the meantime, tell me, which of these are you most excited for?
