Grab a warm cup of cocoa and get ready to celebrate the holidays a little sooner than expected, because Hallmark has more Christmas movies lined up this year than ever before. Entertainment Weekly revealed that the television network will break their annual Countdown to Christmas record by debuting 40 new Christmas TV movies in 2019, and we are so ready to binge them all.
We would expect nothing less for the Hallmark Channel's 10th anniversary than a record-breaking lineup of movies — 24 of which will air on the Hallmark Channel and 16 of which will debut on Hallmark's sister network, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. While official release dates have not yet been revealed, the first of the 40 Christmas films will reportedly air in July to mark Hallmark's Halfway to Christmas campaign, because it's apparently never too soon to celebrate Christmas.
The official Countdown to Christmas kicks off Oct. 25, and we're expecting to see a whole sleigh-full of familiar faces to count us down for the holidays. See the schedule so far ahead:
- The Christmas Song: Starring Kristin Chenoweth and Scott Wolf
- Holiday For Heroes: Starring Melissa Claire Egan and Marc Blucas
- Time For Me to Come Home for Christmas Sequel?: Executive-produced by Blake Shelton
- A Family Under the Christmas Tree: Starring Merritt Patterson and Jon Cor
