Alison Sweeney, Barbara Niven, and Cameron Mathison are hard at work on a new Murder, She Baked movie. The stars have been posting from the set of A Zest for Death: A Hannah Swensen Mystery, which should be released this summer.

But fans have only one question: Will Mike and Hannah get back together?

New Murder, She Baked

In a recent Instagram post, Alison Sweeney shared a behind-the-scenes look at the new movie.

“Here we go again!! Back on set filming another #HannahSwensen with my friend @cameronmathison !! #setlife,” she wrote.

The breakup

In Carrot Cake Murder, Mike and Hannah broke up, much to the dismay of fans. Hannah began working on a cold case with Mike’s blessing. But as she uncovered more clues, Mike began relaying her discoveries to the police department. Though Hannah understands why he does it, she can’t help but feel betrayed.

“You have to give Mike credit that his instinct was to be in on it with Hannah and help her,” Sweeney said in an interview with TV Goodness. “It’s what he wanted to do, and it is a cold case. And so, she really thought that was the plan and then it would be no problem because the police, aren’t even able to investigate. It’s a dead end for them and the door was wide open for her.”

But Sweeney was quick to add that there is a path that Hannah and Mike can take that leads back to each other.

“I love developing stories where, as fun as it was for them to be together and they’re just crime-solving besties, this story of wanting to be together, of finding their way back to each other, and earning each other’s trust again, the tension and the romance and the grand gestures that they have to make to earn it back is, to be honest, my favorite part.”

She also added that the author of the series, Joanne Fluke, was very protective of the characters as well.

“I have to remind everyone that we are the keepers of someone else’s characters,” Sweeney said. “And Joanne cares very passionately about Hannah and everyone in Eden Lake. And these are the stories she tells.”
