Chesapeake Shores is coming to an end. Hallmark Channel’s family-focused drama returns for its sixth and final season on August 14. 

‘Chesapeake Shores’ Season 6 premieres August 14 

Chesapeake Shores Season 6 will premiere Sunday, August 14 at 8 p.m. ET on Hallmark. The show’s last season will have 10 episodes. Stars Meghan Ory, Treat Williams, Barbara Niven, Robert Buckley, Laci J. Mailey, Emilie Ullerup, Brendan Penny, and Andrew Francis will all return. 

The show’s last season will wrap up the story of the O’Brien family, a tight-knit family who live in a quaint town on the Chesapeake Bay. It’s based on a series of books by Sherryl Woods. Seasons 1-5 of Chesapeake Shores are currently streaming on Hallmark Movies Now. 

Why did Hallmark Channel cancel ‘Chesapeake Shores’? 

Hallmark announced in late March that it had renewed Chesapeake Shores for a final season. In a tweet responding to a fan wondering why the show was coming to an end, the network explained that it wanted to go out on top. 

“We are so proud of Chesapeake Shores, a show that has captured imaginations and was reaching a natural conclusion, and we decided to wrap up the show on a high note in the sixth and final season,” read the message.

Though Chesapeake Shores is ending, the show’s cast has promised fans that there’s plenty to look forward to in the final batch of episodes. 

“It will be special,” Williams, who plays O’Brien family patriarch Mick, tweeted after the renewal was announced. 

More recently, the show’s actors have been posting on social media about wrapping up filming for the final season. 

“And that’s a wrap for me and for Megan O’Brien on Chesapeake Shores. I shot my last scenes today,” Niven, who plays Mick’s ex-wife Megan, wrote in a June 24 Instagram post. 

“It’s so hard to say goodbye to this character, this family, and to all of you who have watched and made it possible for these past six years of filming,” she added. “THANK YOU for being part of the O’Brien family.”

Meanwhile, Ullerup, who plays Mick and Megan’s daughter Bree, said in her Instagram Story that she was suffering from “emotion overload,” as she finished work on the show. 

“You ever get a job that changes your whole life?” Mailey, who plays Jess O’Brien, asked in a video shared on her Instagram Story. “Thanks for being part of our family.”
