Unlike our “part 1” preview for Hallmark’s 2018 Christmas originals, as I write this, it feels more like Christmas. That crisp, frigid air is settling in, and I just might finally be ready to pull out a few twinkle lights.

This year, between the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, the networks will air nearly 40 new originals! That’s a lot of Christmas, and with the number of new romances, there’ll be no shortage of Christmas cheer. Since October 29th through December 29th, Hallmark is the place to be every weekend. If you’re new to this channel, here’s a brief rundown on their two networks.

On Hallmark Channel, the campaign is called “Countdown to Christmas.” While over at Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, the films fall under the “Miracles of Christmas” banner. Where the former is usually bubbly and cheerful, the latter deals in some weightier topics. Expect each film to be a TV-G or “soft” TV-PG (‘Movies & Mysteries’) rating.

Let’s have a look at the last (15+!) of the 2018 premieres, including a new When Calls the Heart special, from both networks.
