Victor Webster and Alison Sweeney will reunite on the small screen in a new Hallmark mystery. The actors, who played husband and wife in Hallmark’s The Wedding Veil series, will join forces to find a killer in the movie One Bad Apple: A Hannah Swensen Mystery.

“So excited for the new #HannahSwensen mystery One Bad Apple to premiere this Friday night!!” wrote Alison Sweeney in a social media post promoting the movie. “Thank you @hallmarkmystery for helping us make these fun movies.”

“Think you’ll figure it out before we do?” wrote Victor Webster in his own post.

Victor Webster and Alison Sweeney

Victor Webster and Alison Sweeney have starred in several Hallmark movies together. Webster played Sweeney’s love interest in the popular Hallmark series The Wedding Veil.

But this is his first appearance in the popular Hannah Swensen series. One Bad Apple: A Hannah Swensen Mystery is the ninth movie in the series, which is based on novels by Joanne Fluke.

Up until the last film, A Zest for Death: A Hannah Swensen Mystery, Cameron Mathison starred opposite Alison Sweeney as Mike Kingston, a local detective and her fiancé. Their romance developed over the course of the series. But fans were left reeling when the characters broke off their engagement in the seventh film, Carrot Cake Murder: A Hannah Swensen Mystery.

Though they reunited to solve a case in the next movie, they never reconnected romantically.

In One Bad Apple, Hannah is asked to teach a baking class at the local college. Her equipment is tampered with causing an explosion that the fire department rules accidental. But then one of her new colleagues is murdered and Hannah finds herself on the list of suspects.

While trying to prove her innocence, she comes face-to-face with handsome local prosecutor Chad Norton (Webster) and sparks fly.

What about Cameron?

Cameron Mathison has moved on from Hallmark to work for Great American Media, a company founded by former Hallmark CEO Bill Abbott.

In an interview with TV Insider, Alison Sweeney talked about the changes in Hannah and Mike’s relationship.

“Mike is attracted to Hannah and her crime-solving ways, her mind, the fact that she is so interested, the fact that she’s good at it,” she told TV Insider. “She does get people to talk to her in a way that sometimes Mike or other detectives aren’t able to get them to open up. She does have really good instincts and a unique way of getting people to open up to her. I think the cookies help. Mike respects that, and he loves that about her, but it causes him a lot of trouble at work, and for good reasons and maybe also not-so-good reasons, the sheriff isn’t too keen to have Hannah getting involved in the crime-solving business. So that’s been a tricky thing for [Mike] to navigate. And unfortunately, I think Mike is a little old school, so he struggles with how much of that to share with Hannah.”
