The Grand Picture

As autumn begins to cast its chilly spell over the Northern Hemisphere, one network is already setting its sights on a winter wonderland. While Halloween enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the spooky delights coming to theaters, the Hallmark Channel is gearing up for its annual Countdown to Christmas extravaganza, proving that for them, the holiday season starts as early as October 20.

This year, the Hallmark Channel is unwrapping a sensational gift for its dedicated viewers: a whopping 40 original movie premieres during the Countdown to Christmas and Miracles of Christmas events. The lineup is packed with heartwarming sequels to beloved classics and features a cast of returning stars who’ve become synonymous with the network’s festive tradition. And for those who aren’t too keen on sports or turkey carving on Thanksgiving, fear not; Hallmark has something special in store.

But it’s not just about movies. Hallmark is spreading the holiday cheer far and wide, even beyond your screens. Through social media, fans can participate in exciting giveaways, complete with prizes delivered by the most modern of messengers – robots and drones. Whether you’re an outdoor adventurer or prefer the comfort of a hotel, Hallmark has partnered with KOA and Hilton to surprise lucky winners.

A Star-Studded Celebration

Who can you expect to see on your screens this holiday season? Well, the list is nothing short of impressive. Returning to spread joy are familiar faces like Lacey Chabert of “Mean Girls” fame, Benjamin Ayres from “Saving Hope,” and Catherine Bell from “Good Witch.” Joining the festive fun is Krystal Joy Brown, known for her role in “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” and Katherine Barrell, famous for “Wynona Earp.” Plus, Jonathan Bennett, who brought us laughs in “Mean Girls” and “The Christmas House,” will also grace us with his presence.

And there are newcomers too, including Jonathan Frakes from “Star Trek: Next Generation,” Chris Carmack from “The O.C.,” and Humberly Gonzalez from “Ginny and Georgia.” Erica Cerra of “Eureka” fame and Rick Hoffman from “Suits” will add their unique charm to the festivities.
