Hallmark Channel's Summer Nights

Previewing Hallmark Channel’s Summer Nights

The calendar promises the start of a new month and with August arrives another hot, humid and hazy month of summer. For those of us who love Hallmark Channel, they invite us to grab a glass of lemonade and our favorite spot on the couch. In August, not only is the second season of Chesapeake Shores set to premiere, they also have five new original films in their ‘Summer Nights’ campaign.

Among these new premieres is a sequel, romances with familiar faces and of course, plenty of sandy beaches. As we like to do at Silver Petticoat, today we’re taking a peek at what’s to come. Beyond that, let’s talk about why we’re excited for this summer line up (with the obvious exclusion that is the Hallmark emblem these romantic-comedies bare).

Below we take a closer look at each new movie and share when you can see them. Without further ado, read on to discover what you can discover on the shores of Hallmark’s summer premieres.

#1 Love at the Shore, August 5


If you, like me, watched CBS’ The Mentalist, this breezy romance will interest you. It co-stars Amanda Righetti from the popular show in a story about a single mom who rents a beach house. Hallmark is also featuring their “mascot,” Happy the Dog.

BONUS! Chesapeake Shores, season two premiere August 6

Season two of Hallmark’s “multi-generational family drama premieres the same weekend as their summer nights campaign. I cannot tell you how excited I am about this second season. As a fan of this show (my favorite from Hallmark), catching up with these characters, family complications and of course, the romance is on my “must” list.

I also love that season two looks to give Trace (played by Jesse Metcalfe) some screen time with Abby’s girls.
