‘Countdown to Christmas 2019’: Every New Hallmark Holiday Movie We Know About So Far
It’s only July, but the folks over at the Hallmark Channel are already hanging up the mistletoe and stringing up the twinkly lights. The network known for its feel-good lineup of holiday TV fare has a record-breaking 40 new movies planned for 2019. (That’s two more than aired in 2018, for those keeping track at home.)
On Saturday night, Hallmark regular Lacey Chabert will preview some on the upcoming films in a special Countdown to Christmas preview special, but details about a number of the movies have already been released. Here are the 2019 Hallmark Christmas movies we know about so far.
