Candace Cameron Bure to Star in 2019 Hallmark Christmas Movie. How Many Hallmark Movies Has She Been In?
Get ready to celebrate the holidays with Candace Cameron Bure — again. The Hallmark Channel regular is returning to the network later this year for a new Christmas movie: Christmas Town. The 43-year-old actress has appeared in a new holiday movie for the family-friendly channel every year since 2013.
What we know so far about Christmas Town
Christmas Town is based on a 2016 book by Donna VanLiere, according to US Weekly, which first reported the news of the Full House alum’s latest project. Several of VanLiere’s books have already been turned into films for Hallmark, including The Christmas Secret and The Christmas Note.
Bure’s latest Hallmark holiday movie is about a woman named Lauren Gabriel who leaves behind her life in Boston and ends up making an unexpected detour to the town of charming town of Grandon Falls, where she rediscovers the magic of Christmas.
In addition to Bure, Christmas Town will star Tim Rozon as Travis, a Grandon Falls local who helps Lauren out with a ride from the train station into town. Beth Broderick plays a local waitress who befriends Lauren.
How many Hallmark movies has Candace Cameron Bure starred in?
Christmas Town is Bure’s eighth Christmas movie for Hallmark. Previously, she starred in Moonlight & Mistletoe (2008), Let It Snow (2013), Christmas Under Wraps (2014), A Christmas Detour (2015), Journey Back to Christmas (2016), Switched for Christmas (2017), and A Shoe Addict’s Christmas (2018). Two of those movies — Christmas Under Wraps and Switched for Christmas — were among the highest-rated premieres in the channel’s history.
Bure isn’t just a Hallmark holiday regular. Since 2014, she has also starred as the title character in the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, where she plays a small-town librarian who solves crimes. So far, she’s starred in nine television films in the series, with another three to air in September 2019.
The actress has also appeared in Just the Way You Are, where she played a matchmaker who needs to rekindle her relationship with her husband. In Puppy Love, she played a single mom who gets involved in a canine custody dispute.
All told, Bure has appeared in 18 Hallmark productions, with another four on the way. No wonder they call her the “Queen of Hallmark.”
Preparing for “Countdown to Christmas” 2019
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Hallmark’s annual “Countdown to Christmas” celebration, and Christmas Town is just one of 40 original films that Hallmark plans to air during the holiday season. That’s two more new movies than aired in 2018 and a record for the network.
Other new movies on the slate include A Christmas Love Story starring Kristin Chenoweth and Scott Wolf, Holiday for Heroes with Melissa Claire Egan and Marc Blucas, Five Cards for Christmas with Chad Michael Murray and Torrey DeVitto, and A Family Under the Christmas Tree (tentative title) with Merritt Patterson and Jon Cor. The network will also air a new movie with Jodie Sweetin, currently titled Merry and Bright, and a holiday movie from executive producer Blake Shelton.
Can’t wait until December for all this holiday fun? Hallmark is airing old Christmas movies every Friday at 8/7c to get viewers in the Christmas spirit. Plus, viewers can look forward to July’s Keepsake Christmas Week, when a brand-new Christmas movie will debut.
