Although the films are new, you're in store for some familiar Hallmark faces, including Candace Cameron Bure, Janel Parrish, and Lacey Chabert. It all kicks off on Friday, October 22, which gives you some extra time to prepare accordingly. And by that we mean ordering your Hallmark Channel wines, chocolates and Monopoly game!

Also, fans who just can't get enough Hallmark holiday cheer can catch two more original movies on Hallmark Movies Now, the networks' standalone streaming service. Every Time a Bell Rings stars Erin Cahill, Wes Brown and more with local sights and holiday traditions on location in Natchez, MS. Sugar Plum Twist stars Jamie Gray Hyder, Ektor Eivera and Laura Rosguer. Consider it a Latin twist on the classic ballet, The Nutcracker.

It doesn't end there this holiday season. Hallmark Channel just announced its first ever "Merry Thanksgiving Weekend" happening Friday, November 26 to Sunday, November 28. There'll be a double-feature movie premiere each night at 6PM and 8PM ET/PT starting with Lacey Chabert's 11th Hallmark Christmas movie that takes place in Ireland called Christmas at Castle Hart.
