Previewing Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas 2017, Part 2

Though Hallmark has been celebrating this most wonderful time of year since Halloween, their Countdown to Christmas campaign continues with 15 additional 2017 premieres!

Between the two networks (Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries), there’s sure to be something for everyone. The former opts for the lighter, romantic-comedy stories. The latter looks for some deeper truths and occasionally gives us a mystery to puzzle together.

Below, we’ve collected those additional 15 new films spanning both networks, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. You’re going to spy many a familiar face, faces making their Hallmark Channel debut, book adaptations, and of course, plenty of mistletoe.


As of now, the films below are set to premiere in the range between December 2nd – December 30th. Keep an eye on your listings. Dates and titles do change. (We’ll update with any changes we catch.)
