Hallmark also has plans for the return of their annual ‘Summer Nights’ and ‘Fall Harvest’ (program blocks we’ll discuss closer to their respective scheduled air dates); and also plans for a new Picture Perfect Mysteries (fall 2020) movie, and in 2021 new installments in the Aurora Teagarden franchise.
