Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas Schedule for 2020 Is Here

Christmas has come early!

Although the calendar says it’s still summertime, our warm-weather plans have been interrupted by a big dose of holiday cheer: Hallmark just announced its annual Christmas movie lineup.

Many of the things that people hold dear about the holidays are deeply personal. Ree Drummond, for example, cherishes the smell of cinnamon rolls, Johnny Mathis’s music, and memories of her Grandma Helen’s house. But some of the best parts of the season—like watching Christmas movies—are loved by all.

Ree is a big fan of “the classics.” While it’s tough to beat the tale of George Bailey and his guardian angel in It’s a Wonderful Life., there’s something to be said about the wonderfully cheesy storylines that can only be found in the latest Hallmark Christmas movies.

Lucky for us, the network plans to release 40 brand-new films this year! The festive programming will air on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries from October through December, so everyone can enjoy two full months of romantic connections, family reunions, and Yuletide spirit.

Both Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ “Miracles of Christmas” are scheduled to begin on Friday, October 23. Of the 40 new holiday movies, 23 will premiere on Hallmark Channel and an additional 17 will appear on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

The official schedule is still being finalized, but fans can count on seeing their favorite stars like Candace Cameron Bure, Erin Krakow, Carlos PenaVega, Lacey Chabert, and Holly Robinson Peete return to the small screen.

Read on for everything we know about the 2020 Hallmark Christmas movie schedule, and be sure to check back for updates on casting, premiere dates, and more!
