We can always count on Hallmark to get us in the holiday spirit. And while, the network is known to spread cheer during the off-season, they fully embrace, as they call it "24/7 yuletide," with back-to-back Christmas movies the moment that October rolls around.
This year, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries are doubling up on the festive fun, airing 41 brand-new Christmas movies from October 22 to Santa's arrival. Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, kick things off with Hallmark Channel's "Countdown to Christmas" at 8 p.m. ET/ PT, then follow it up with Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' "Miracles of Christmas" at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday nights. The holiday season — or shall we say, Hallmark movie-watching season — is jam-packed with sugary-sweet romances, highly-anticipated reunions (psst, Back to the Future and Wonder Years fans) and all of your Hallmark favorites (Candace Cameron Bure, Lacey Chabert, Danica McKellar, Tamera Mowry-Housley, to name a few).
We're still a few weeks out from the kickoff date, but that doesn't mean it's too early to prepare for what's to come (FYI, here's how to watch). So, keep scrolling to see the lineup for 2021 — and stay tuned because Hallmark still has a few more surprises in the works.
