Clear your schedules, ladies and gents. Hallmark is celebrating the fast-approaching holiday season (*sigh*) with a record-breaking number of Christmas movies.
That’s right, the network and its sister channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, will air 40—we repeat, 40—new films in 2019, according to Entertainment Weekly. The Hallmark Channel will broadcast 24 of the new Christmas movies, while HMM will air the other 16.
The network will kick things off in July with the launch of its halfway to the holidays campaign, Keepsake Christmas. Hallmark will then celebrate the tenth anniversary of Countdown to Christmas beginning October 25.
The announcement marks a new record for Hallmark, which previously set the bar at 38 flicks. Over the last ten years, the two networks have aired a whopping 176 original films, meaning this year’s batch will take them past the 200 mark. (#Bless)
