Alexa PenaVega’s new Hallmark movie will premiere as part of the Loveuary lineup.

Hallmark is filming three new Wedding Veil movies. Star Lacey Chabert revealed the news during a recent appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show.

“We’re going to be back,” Chabert said.

The Wedding Veil trilogy, which aired earlier this year on Hallmark, starred Chabert, Alison Sweeney, and Autumn Reeser, as three college friends who discover an antique wedding veil rumored to bring true love to its owner. In The Wedding Veil, Chabert’s character meets the man of her dreams. In the sequel, The Wedding Veil Unveiled, it was Reeser’s turn to meet a handsome stranger. And in The Wedding Veil Legacy, Sweeney found her happily ever after. The movies were among the network’s most-watched films of the year.

Three new Wedding Veil movies

During her appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show, Chabert talked about how happy she was to appear in Hallmark movies.

“I think now, more than ever, like, we just need some goodness in the world,” Chabert said. “People come up to me all the time and they go, ‘You know, it’s my husband and I, it’s our favorite thing to do together. This movie has helped bring my family together.’ So I consider it an honor to be a part of.”

Chabert shared with the audience that she had starred in 33 movies for Hallmark Media. Fallon claimed to have seen every one of them.

“I watch them with my dad,” he said.

Chabert then asked if he wanted to be in one.

“Like, I have some stuff next year,” she said. “I would love to be in one with you.”

Wedding Veil Trilogy

The Wedding Veil trilogy made headlines when it premiered on the Hallmark Channel in January 2022. Fans were excited to see three of their favorite stars together in three different movies.

And while the focus of each movie was true love, Chabert said that the story was really about the friendship between the women.

“I think the sisterhood is at the heart of these stories,” Chabert said during a Facebook Live event to promote the third film.

Reeser agreed, saying that the relationship between the three characters reminded her of her own friendships in real life.

“The love stories that have meant the most to me in my life are the love stories between me and my friends,” she said. “I think friendship gets put in a second-place position and for so many of us, those are the relationships that carry us through our life.”

New movies

Chabert didn’t reveal much about the new Wedding Veil movies, other than the fact that the first one will premiere in January 2023.

The Hallmark Christmas comedy Three Wise Men and a Baby is the most-watched cable movie of the year, according to Nielsen ratings.

The movie, which starred Andrew Walker, Tyler Hynes, and Paul Campbell, premiered on November 19 during Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas lineup.

According to the ratings, it was ad-supported cable’s most-watched movie of the year to date among homes, viewers, women 18+, persons 18+, women 25-54, and women 18-34. It averaged 2.9 million homes, 411,000 women 25-54, and 3.6 million total viewers, according to Nielsen.

Three Wise Men and a Baby

In the movie, a self-absorbed firefighter Luke (Walker) discovers a baby left in his station with a note asking him to look after the child. He brings the baby home to his mother (played by Margaret Colin) who agrees to look after him. But when she gets called out of town unexpectedly, Luke must look after the infant with help from his brothers, played by Hynes and Campbell.

The premise was a departure from the typical single-woman-finds-love-at-the-holidays formula Hallmark Media has become so famous for. But it worked, according to fans.

“This is the BEST!” wrote one fan on Facebook. “Team those three up, again!”

“Hallmark, you got a winner with this movie!! If you haven’t seen it, watch it!! wrote another.

The trio movie

Hallmark found similar success when it paired up three of its other big names, Alison Sweeney, Lacey Chabert, and Autumn Reeser, in The Wedding Veil trilogy. In those romantic comedies, three best friends experienced the mystery of a lace veil rumored to bring true love to its owner.

The movie was inspired in part by fans. Chabert said that fans often asked her if they would see some sort of cross-over movie, with more than one Hallmark leading lady.

Those films did so well that Hallmark tried its hand with three leading men. The gamble paid off.

“Belly laughs,” wrote one fan. “Absolutely adorable movie!”

Walker, Hynes, and Campbell managed to raise a lot of hype for the movie from their on-set antics. In a TikTok video that went viral, the three stars emerged from their trailers wearing elf costumes. Assuming macho poses, they then strutted off together as the George Baker Selection’s hit “Little Green Bag” played in the background.

Three Wise Men and a Baby will air throughout the Christmas season. The next showtime is Saturday, November 26 at 4/3c.

In a recent interview, Hallmark star Alison Sweeney talked about the possibility of a new Murder, She Baked movie. Sweeney, who plays amateur sleuth Hannah Swensen in the franchise, said she will do what she can to make sure the series continues.

“…Believe me, I am a big fan of Hannah Swensen and if I can make that happen, I will,” she told Us magazine.

Hallmark last released a Hannah Swensen movie in August 2021. Sweet Revenge: A Hannah Swensen Mystery was the six movie in the series, which are based on the cozy mystery books by author Joanne Fluke.

A new Murder, She Baked movie

Sweeney, who starred in the 2022 Countdown to Christmas movie A Magical Christmas Village, said she enjoys playing baker-turned-sleuth Swensen.

“I love making those movies,” she said during an interim with Us magazine. “Those are my favorites to be honest.”

Hallmark released the first of the movies, Murder, She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery, in 2015. The film followed bakery owner Hannah Swensen, who finds her friend and delivery driver, Ron (Jason Cermak), shot to death behind her shop. Swensen helps local police detective Mike Kingston — played by Cameron Mathison — to solve the murder.

Four more movies followed: Murder, She Baked: A Plum Pudding Mystery (2015), Murder, She Baked: A Peach Cobbler Mystery (2016), Murder, She Baked: A Deadly Recipe (2016), Murder, She Baked: Just Desserts (2017). Fans had to wait four years for a new movie. In Sweet Revenge: A Hannah Swensen Mystery, Sweeney’s character was preparing for her wedding to Mike when she finds a dead body.
.

Sweeney said she would love to make more of the Chronicle Mysteries series.

“I love that series. I love that show,” she said. “Unfortunately, it’s, like, not my decision. But believe me, if ever there was interest, I would be ready to take it up again.”

Canceled Hallmark mysteries

Hallmark mystery fans were shocked earlier this year to find out that several of their favorite mystery series were canceled.

“I just found out that Hailey Dean is done at Hallmark,” Kellie Martin wrote on Twitter. “Really sad and sorry to report.

Also canceled were the Matchmaker Mysteries and the Picture Perfect Mysteries.

Fans found out that Aurora Teagarden was also finished when Candace Cameron Bure announced she was leaving Hallmark to work with the new family-friendly entertainment company Great American Media.

Alison Sweeney

Alison Sweeney rose to fame playing Samantha “Sami” Brady on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. She also hosted the series The Biggest Loser from Season 4 to Season 16.

In addition to the Murder, She Baked and Chronicle Mysteries movies, Sweeney has starred in the Hallmark films Love on the Air, The Irresistible Blueberry Farm, Christmas at Holly Lodge, and Time For You to Come Home For Christmas.

The new Hallmark movie The Secrets of Bella Vista is a romantic mystery starring Rachelle Lefevre and Niall Matter. It is based on the 2013 novel The Apple Orchard by best-selling author Susan Wiggs, which is the first in a trilogy called the Bella Vista Chronicles.

New Hallmark movie

In the film, Lefevre plays Tess, who gets surprising news from an estate executor (played by Matter) that she has inherited half of an apple orchard from the father she never knew and has a half-sister named Isabel (Helena Marie) she didn’t know about.

According to a synopsis from Hallmark, “When Tess visits the orchard and connects with her new-found family, she learns that the orchard is deep in debt.

The new Hallmark movie To Her, With Love will premiere on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries as part of the fall lineup. The second in its Mahogany series, the film stars Skye P. Marshall, Maria Howell, Brittany L. Smith, and Tobias Truvillion.

New Hallmark movie

In the movie, Skye P. Marshall plays Kayla, an ambitious teacher who returns to her small hometown after her stint at an elite New York school comes to an end. Her dream is to attend a competitive teaching program in London, but she is scared to apply.

Her mother (played by Maria Howell) encourages her to take a job at the local high school. When she finds out that her high school best friend Tanya (Brittany L. Smith) teaches there, she agrees to take the job.

At first, she struggles to connect with her students. But when she follows the advice of a dedicated fellow teacher (played by Tobias Truvillion), she learns to tap into their unique artistic passions and her students begin flourishing. When Kayla learns the school may be scrapping the arts department due to budget cuts, she and Jordan work together to set up a fundraising showcase.

Hallmark’s Mahogany series

Hallmark announced in 2021 that it would create a series of films under the Mahogany brand.

The Mahogany line of cards was introduced in 1987. According to Hallmark, “The card line exists to enhance emotional connections between family, friends and the community by capturing what’s most beloved and valued about African American culture.” Over the years, the brand has created cards with Maya Angelou, Jill Scott, T.D. Jakes, and Iyanla Vanzant.

The first movie in the series, Unthinkably Good Things, was released in August.

Body-positive Hallmark movie

“We are very excited to bring our viewers this movie that celebrates self-love and self-acceptance,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, executive vice president of Crown Media Family Networks in a statement. “We are committed to a more diverse and inclusive slate of projects, so we are happy to share a story showing that love comes in all shapes and sizes.”

“I am so thrilled to be part of this new conversation we are currently having about self-acceptance and the positive spreading of that message,” Elliot said in a statement released by the network.

“Hallmark is opening an important dialogue about female empowerment and breaking through the oh-so-thick ceiling of social misconceptions we have collectively built. Long gone is the time when it was acceptable to judge people solely on their appearance. I think it’s high time we all move on from these superficial criteria and build a healthier, more connected world in which we strive to be better at being kind and tolerant.”

The actress posted a photo on Instagram promoting the movie.

In response to her post, Hollingsworth wrote, “I had so much fun making this with you. Can’t wait for everyone to see you shine.”

If you’ve ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes in a Hallmark movie, now’s your chance. Author Serena B. Miller kept a blog of her experience on the set of the Hallmark movie based on her novel Moriah’s Lighthouse.

The movie, which was filmed on location in France will premiere as part of the network’s Summer Nights lineup. The film stars Rachelle Lefevre and Luke Macfarlane.

In a 10-part series on her website, Miller wrote about everything from being approached by a director who wanted to turn her work into a film, to staying in France and watching filming on set.

The bestselling author said she was “cautiously excited” when director Terry Cunningham reached out to her about Moriah’s Lighthouse.

“I knew the chances for an author getting a book turned into a finished movie was roughly around the same as getting struck by lightning,” she wrote.

But after a few meetings, it looked like the movie was going to come together. And then, she wrote, COVID hit.

“The deadline to renew the option agreement came and went,” she wrote. “I assumed the project had been cancelled. Fast forward in time. Covid eases up. Terry calls. The project is back on! He and Paul have been asked to write a script for Moriah’s Lighthouse. Big news–the movie will be filmed at a lighthouse in France!”

On the set of the Hallmark movie Moriah’s Lighthouse

In Moriah’s Lighthouse, an artisan woodworker sets her sights on rebuilding an old lighthouse in France. She gets some help when an American architect arrives in town and the two begin working together.

The location is a central part of the story, so Miller was thrilled when she arrived on set.

“Huge red granite boulders are scattered everywhere, as though tossed there by a giant hand,” she wrote. “The original lighthouse was built in 1860 but was destroyed by the Germans during WWII. This newer lighthouse was rebuilt in 1946.”

Miller talked about meeting the stars of the movie, and how gracious they were.

“I thank Rachelle for agreeing to be in this movie,” she wrote. “She thanks me for ‘writing the book that brought us here!’”

When she met Macfarlane, she found out he knew quite a bit about woodworking himself.

“He tells me that his grandfather was a cabinet maker and taught him,” she wrote. “When he moved to Los Angeles, he took classes in carpentry so that he could remodel his L.A. house.”

Busy schedule

One of the things that struck Miller about the movie-making process was just how much needed to get done in only three weeks. She was also surprised at how physically demanding the process was. One day, she was standing on the set when she noticed two people who weren’t moving:

“I’m simply standing still, observing, making notes and trying to stay out of the way. Then I notice there are two people who also are not rushing around. A young man and woman stand patiently in the middle of the dining room while others buzz around them. Then they take a few steps and stand some more. Stand, move. Stand, move. It takes me a moment to realize they are standing in for the two main actors. Not only does movie making take experience and talent, it requires an amazing amount of sheer endurance.”

Hallmark Channel’s Romance to the Rescue

In the movie, Brooks plays Kyra, a goal-oriented woman who knows what she’s looking for in her career and her love life. When a new manager named Trevor (Witte) joins the staff at the grocery store where she works, she becomes convinced he is “the one.” A well-meaning friend finds out that Trevor is an animal lover and tells him that Kyra trains agility dogs. He becomes fascinated and encourages her to participate in an agility contest the store is sponsoring. There’s just one problem: Kyra’s friend made the whole thing up. Kyra knows next to nothing about dogs, and she certainly isn’t a trainer.

In an attempt to keep up the cover story, Kyra adopts a dog from a local shelter. But when her attempts to train the dog backfire, she turns to the head of the shelter, Kevin (played by Rosner), for help.

The more time she spends with Kevin, the more confused Kyra becomes. If Trevor is “the one,” why is she having so much fun with Kevin?

Brooks promoted the movie on Instagram. She posted a photo with director Heather Hawthorn-Doyle and a stuffed stand-in dog they used during filming.

“Words can’t begin to describe how much I ADORE working with director extraordinaire @hhdtvis!” she wrote. “Here we are with our ‘love puppy’ stand-in!”

When she arrives in Los Angeles, her uncle lends Amelia a car and tells her to see her boyfriend in Chicago. He sends along a bodyguard (Daugherty) to keep an eye on her. As the two travel across the country, they grow closer, and Amelia starts to wonder if she has picked the wrong man.

Philippa Northeast

Northeast got her start as a child actress in Australia. She had starring roles in the TV shows Home and Away, Standing Up For Sunny, and Bondi Slayer.

A Royal Runaway Romance is her first Hallmark film.

Brant Daugherty

Brant Daugherty is a Hallmark veteran. He starred in the movies Mingle All the Way, Timeless Love, and The Nature of Romance. He has also had roles on the TV shows Pretty Little Liars, Freakish, and Relationship Status.

During a 2021 with Access Hollywood, Daughterty talked about how his wife went into early labor while he was on location filming the Hallmark movie The Baker’s Son.

The film was supposed to wrap two days before his wife’s due date.

“I thought, I’ll take the film as a way of providing for my family, and hopefully I’ll make it,” he said. “A lot of first babies come late.”

But his wife ended up going into labor early. Daugherty called her in between every take. Finally, after 30 hours in labor, she opted for a C-section, which Daugherty was able to watch on a FaceTime call.

“It was a little intense,” he said in an interview with Hallmark. “I was doing my best to hold it together from a thousand miles away.”

Premiere date

A Royal Runaway Romance will premiere on Hallmark Channel on Saturday, April 9 at 8/7c.
