If you’re like us and have had a standing appointment with your couch on Sunday nights to watch Hallmark’s hit time traveling family drama, The Way Home, do we have great news for you. While there are only two episodes left this season, the network announced Wednesday morning that Del, Kat, Alice, and Elliot will be back for season 3 in 2025.

“Once again, our cast, writers and entire crew have used their impressive talents to create a story  that is just as compelling and addictive as the first season. We’re grateful to the fans who are so passionate about the series and can’t wait for them to see what – and when – is ahead for season 3,” Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive  Vice President Programming, Hallmark Media said in a statement.

In the same release, Kelly Garrett, Vice President of Development for Hallmark media added, “Heather Conkie, Alexandra Clarke and Marly Reed continue to blow us away with the cleverly  crafted story they’ve created and careful thought they put into every single detail. While some questions will be answered by the end  of this season, the Landrys’ journey is far from over and there’s much more to tell.”

In season 1 of The Way Home, we met Kat Landry (Chyler Leigh) and her daughter Alice (Sadie Laflamme-Snow) as they returned back to Kat’s childhood home, a farm in a small town in Canada. It’s a tense reunion at first with Kat’s mother Del (Andie MacDowell) as mother and daughter have not seen each other in 20 years and Alice had never before met her grandmother. Soon Alice learns the origins of their rift, the disappearance of Kat’s younger brother Jacob, and the death of Kat’s father Colton. Then Alice discovers that a pond on the family farm is actually a portal to a different world. She time travels back to the year of Jacob’s disappearance when Kat is just a teenager. It’s not long before Kat also discovers the pond and that she too  has the power to time travel back to 1999.

Leigh spoke with Southern Living as the first season was airing and said, “Everybody who worked on this show, in front of camera and behind camera, creatively, writing, producing, no matter what department you’re in, particularly the cast as well, really we’ve had an incredibly magical time, no pun intended, working on this. And it’s a great privilege to be able to bring it to a network that already has such a passionate following.”

We also spoke to MacDowell at the start of the series. The South Carolina native spoke about how special this experience is and in particular, how special she thinks her character Del is. “I tried to make her a little offbeat. I love the sadness in her. That’s something that I enjoyed playing because then also it shows the journey from who she was and how happy she was in her earlier days. I know as a mature woman, how hard life is. So I like being able to use that, what I understand about life and give it to Del and finding that in her. I love being able to use what I understand and giving it to her.”

Season 2 just increased the suspense and drama as now Kat is traveling to a different time period. She’s transported back to 1814 and discovers that this is where her brother has been all along. Jacob is now an adult.

Where will season 3 take us? We will definitely be tuning in to find out!

The Way Home airs Sundays on Hallmark Channel and the season finale airs March 31.
