Earlier this month, we took a look at 15 of the Hallmark originals premiering in November. Today, as December tiptoes near, I’m back to take a peek at the remaining 11 original movies premiering under the Hallmark brand.

If you’ve already gobbled up all of the Christmas movies Hallmark has given to us thus far, complete with a pretty bow, you’re in luck. The channel has an additional eleven premieres starting this weekend and wrapping up January 1st. As always, there is bound to be plenty of sweet romance in the films listed below with many familiar faces.

Let’s have a look.

Previewing Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas, Part 2

(Listed by Premiere Dates)

1. A Dream Of Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Channel December 3

Hallmark Christmas

Though it’s a familiar plot (a wish made that comes true), this one actually sounds really interesting. The wish in this scenario is made by a woman who’s unhappy in her marriage. Of course, her desire to be single again comes true, only she comes to second guess herself when she realizes her husband has no place in her new life. You’ll also spy a familiar (Hallmark) face in the leading man, Andrew Walker.

2. Looks Like Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Channel December 4

Hallmark Christmas

Dylan Neal (Gourmet Detective) stars in Looks Like Christmas as a single father. Newly arrived, he ends up in a battle with a fellow single parent with regards to their kids’ school play. Anne Heche co-stars.

3. Hearts of Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Movie Channel December 4

Hallmark Christmas

This one pits a newly promoted neonatal intensive care unit supervisor and a CFO against each other over cutting the staff’s budget. I’m guessing a different kind of argument soon sparks between the pair.

4. A Nutcracker Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Channel December 10

Hallmark Channel Christmas

Amy Acker (Person of Interest) stars in this, a story that sounds like a complex tear-jerker. It’s about a rising ballet dancer whose support system, her sister, dies unexpectedly.

5. Love You Like Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Channel December 11

Cedar Cove star Brennan Elliot co-stars in this sweet romance. It’s about a woman who is stranded in a small town following car trouble.

6. Sound of Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Movie Channel December 11

A widower hires a music teacher to instruct his teenage daughter. Of course, romance blossoms between the couple. This one stars Lindy Booth.

7. My Christmas Love

Premieres on Hallmark Channel December 17

Hallmark Christmas

This one sounds like pure Christmas romance fluff, and I love that. The story is about a woman who begins receiving the 12 Gifts of Christmas (like the song), and the kind of adventure she goes on to discover her anonymous suitor.

8. Christmas to Remember

Premieres on Hallmark Movie Channel December 18

Mira Sorvino and Cameron Mathison star in this one about a TV personality who needs a break from reality only to get into an accident that causes amnesia.

9. Sleigh Bells Ring

Premieres on Hallmark Channel December 18

Hallmark Christmas

With some magic sparkled into its story, this is about a single mother who runs across a farmer who spins an enchanting tale. One that involves a sleigh he claims ended up on his farm thanks to Santa himself.

10. When Calls the Heart: Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Channel December 25


Similar to last year’s New Year’s special, this Christmas special will kick off the 2017 season of the beloved When Calls the Heart series. This installment finds Elizabeth, Jack, and the Hope Valley gang giving back to help new settlers. (Plus, there looks to be pretty snow and a ball involved.)

11. A Rose for Christmas

Premieres on Hallmark Channel January 1, 2017

Ending the 2016 holiday programming is this film. With Rachel Boston in the leading role, it’s about a woman who comes from a family who has built parade floats for generations.

  1. I’m waiting for A Nutcracker Christmas because Amy Acker plays a ballerina and she dances and I won’t miss it for the world.
    Also I liked Broadcasting Christmas. I thought My Christmas Dream and Christmas list were okay-ish.

    • YAY! Hope you enjoy ‘Nutcracker,’ Dalia. It does look like a lovely film, and I wonder if Amy does really dance!? I’ve not read about that, but it’s cool that she does!

      I’ve not seen ‘Broadcating,’ but I’ve loved “A December Bride,” and “Christmas in Homestead.” 🙂
