Kent came home from work today ( Wednesday) and actually stated “You watched A Christmas Movie today?” Yep tis true, I pvr’ed all the Christmas in July Hallmark movies. It’s never to early for a Hallmark Christmas Movie is it? Well except when a Fall Harvest original is on.
So grab your favorite mug and cozy Christmas sweater and get ready to mark up your calendar. Your PVR is about to start working overtime. The Hallmark Channel has released the entire schedule for Countdown to Christmas 2019.
And this gal has got you covered, I just may have done some internet surfing while home sick. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the network’s special holiday movie bonanza and they did not disappoint.
A whopping 40 new original movies will air across both Hallmark networks. The holiday-themed fun begins soon—October 25th to be exact! No shame in getting into the spirit early. Heck, some say it’s good for you!
Hallmark Christmas Movies 2019
This is a compilation of all the sites listing the Hallmark Movies. I have included the summary when available and will continue to update as new information becomes available. In the meantime sit back and relax and get ready for the holidays. Hallmarks Countdown to Christmas starts October 25th and includes 24 new premiers
Saturday, October 26: Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses
Even in the cheery world of Hallmark, the holidays are insanely stressful. For Abbey (played by Jill Wagner), December brings a new job as an interior designer and a potential love interest who just so happens to be her brand new boss. Things get complicated, to say the least.
Saturday, November 2: Merry & Bright
Enter this season’s candy cane drama. Fuller House‘s Jodie Sweetin joins Hallmark regular Andrew Walker in her third holiday movie. She plays Cate, the CEO of the Merry & Bright Candy Cane Company, who thinks she’s being set up with Gabe (played by Walker), but instead he’s really trying to find ways to optimize — or even, take over — her business.
Sunday, November 3: Christmas Scavenger Hunt
No Mountie here: When Calls the Heart star Kevin McGarry brings the drama in his first-ever Hallmark movie, Christmas Scavenger Hunt. The movie — you guessed it — is about a town’s annual scavenger hunt. The catch? Two exes (played by McGarry and Kim Shaw) are forced to team up and keep the Christmas spirit alive.
Saturday, November 9: Picture a Perfect Christmas
The best things in life can be unexpected, which is true for this young sports photographer (played by Merritt Patterson) who moves back home to care for her grandmother. While there, she meets a man (played by Jon Cor) who needs someone to care for his nephew — and you guessed it, she’s happy to lend a helping hand.
Sunday, November 10: The Mistletoe Secret
Kellie Pickler is back under the mistletoe: She’s teaming up with Tyler Hynes and Patrick Duffy in The Mistletoe Secret.
Saturday, November 16: Christmas Under the Stars
In some cases, the magic of Christmas can solve even the toughest problems. In Nick’s case (played by Jesse Metcalfe), he meets Julie (played by Autumn Reeser) who helps him overcome his recent layoff and get in the Christmas spirit. As luck would have it, she’ll need a holiday boost, too.
Sunday, November 17: Write Before Christmas
Chad Michael Murray joins Hallmark regulars Torrey DeVitto and Drew Seeley in this fun movie, which tells the story of Jessica (played by DeVitto) who sends Christmas cards to five important people in her life. But it’s their reaction — or lack thereof — that really makes things interesting.
Thursday , November 21: Sense, Sensibility & Snowmen
We’ll get double the dose of Erin Krakow this holiday season in Sense, Sensibility & Snowmen. Loosely based on the Jane Austen classic, the movie follows a party planner named Ella (played by Krakow) who clashes with “a not-so-jolly toy company CEO” (played by Luke Macfarlane from Brothers & Sisters).
Saturday, November 23: Christmas at Graceland: Home for the Holidays
We’re heading back to Graceland this year! One minor detail: Kellie Pickler and Wes Brown won’t be along for the ride since this movie is totally unrelated to Wedding at Graceland. It’s just as magical, though: While filling in as a Graceland tour guide, Kaitlin Doubleday‘s character is offered to nanny the three children of Adrien Grenier‘s character.
Sunday, November 24: A Gift to Remember 2
Because Darcy and Aidan’s love story is far from over. Ali Liebert and Peter Porte return to continue what they started or, potentially, put the brakes on their complicated romance.
Monday, November 25: A Christmas Duet
A Christmas Duet, which stars Teryl Rothery, Chaley Rose, and Rome Flynn, promises to bring good tidings and joy in the form of music. Averie and Jesse (played by Rose and Flynn) are a former music duo who went their separate ways — until this year. Just in time for the annual Yuletide Festival, the two get brought back together and are forced to decide whether or not they’ll ignite an old flame.
Tuesday, November 26: The Christmas Club
Just when they thought they were too busy to find love, Olivia Bennett (played by Elizabeth Mitchell) and Edward Taylor (played by Cameron Mathison) meet while helping an elderly woman track down her lost savings. Along the way, they figure out what they’re really missing: each other.
Wednesday, November 27: Double Holiday
Double the Christmas, double the fun: Stars Kristoffer Polaha and Carly Pope find out if that’s true in this brand-new movie.
Thursday, November 28: Check Inn to Christmas
No plot details yet, but we’re guessing that the movie, which stars Rachel Boston and Wes Brown, takes place at an inn during Christmas. Just a thought.
Friday, November 29: Christmas at the Plaza
Ryan Paevey and Elizabeth Henstridge partner up in this Christmas love story.
Saturday, November 30: Christmas in Rome
After the success of Pride, Prejudice, and Mistletoe, Lacey Chabert is working with Sam Page in her eighth Hallmark Christmas movie.

Soon after, she meets Oliver, a fellow tourist, who hires her to be his personal tour guide — and well, you can guess what happens next.
Sunday, December 1: Christmas Town
Just like Chabert, Candace Cameron Bure is headlining her eighth Hallmark Christmas movie, Christmas Town. The movie tells the story of Lauren Gabriel who leaves the big city for the small town of Grandon Falls. Along the way, she meets a few key townspeople, played by Wynonna Earp‘s Tim Rozen and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch‘s Beth Broderick, who remind her the real reason for the season.
Saturday, December 7: Hallmark Hall of Fame A Christmas Love Story
In her Hallmark debut, Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth plays a youth choir director who discovers the vocal talent of one of her students. The catch? The young boy’s dad, played by Party of Five’s Scott Wolf, has no idea that his son has a golden voice.
Sunday, December 8: Christmas at Dollywood
Last year introduced Hallmark fans to Graceland. This year is the year of Dollywood. Danica McKellar plays Rachel Lewis, a single mom who ditches New York City to return to her roots in Tennessee. While there, she’s offered an opportunity to produce a show for the 20th anniversary of the Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival at Dollywood. The only problem? The park’s (very single) entertainment director. Luckily, Dolly Parton — yes, the country superstar — saves the day.
Saturday, December 14: Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy
The all-star cast — Paul Greene, Maggie Lawson, Barbara Niven, Holly Robinson Peete, Rukiya Bernard, Colin Lawrence, Ashley Williams, and Jill Wagner — returns to Evergreen for a third year in this holiday sequel.

Thursday, October 31: Nostalgic Christmas
Brooke D’Orsay and Trevor Donovan bring together two of our favorites — Christmas and the feeling of nostalgia — in this seasonal movie.
