Eleven new Hallmark movies — including rom-coms, mysteries, and Christmas films — are coming to television in October.
With Countdown to Christmas kicking off on Hallmark Channel and Miracles of Christmas starting on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, fans of heartfelt, romantic, and uplifting TV will be spoiled for choice all month.
In addition to the Christmas movies, a new Hannah Swensen will premiere, as will a new Curious Caterer mystery.
New Hallmark movies
First up is A Zest For Death: A Hannah Swensen Mystery.

3 Bed, 2 Bath, 1 Ghost
Real-life couple Julie Gonzalo and Chris McNally will star in this movie, which also features Madeleine Arthur. Gonzalo stars as Anna, who just got her first listing as a real estate agent.
