The Hallmark Channel Reveals First Look at 2023 Countdown to Christmas

2023's Countdown to Christmas is just around the corner.

Christmas always comes early on the Hallmark Channel — and we've got a sneak peek at this year's collection of original movies.

The network released a first look at its Countdown to Christmas 2023 lineup. All-new holiday movie premieres will be here in October and last through the holiday season.

According to the Hallmark Channel website, this year's collection of cheery Christmas flicks includes A Merry Scottish Christmas, A Biltmore Christmas, and a sequel to Haul out the Holly entitled Haul out the Holly: Lit Up.

A Biltmore Christmas features actors Bethany Joy Lenz (Good Sam and An Unexpected Christmas) and Kristoffer Polaha (We Wish You a Married Christmas and Jurassic World: Dominion). The narrative follows Lucy Collins (Lenz), a skilled screenwriter who seizes a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when she's recruited to pen the screenplay for a modern adaptation of the cherished holiday classic, His Merry Bride! During her exploration of the iconic Biltmore Estate for research, her attention is captivated by an exquisite hourglass. Accidentally tipping it over, Lucy finds herself unexpectedly transported back in time to the year 1946, a period often referred to as the Golden Age of Hollywood.

A Merry Scottish Christmas sees the return of brother-sister duo Lindsay (Lacey Chabert) and Brad (Scott Wolf) as they travel to Scottland for Christmas. There, they reunite with their mother Jo (Fiona Bell), and a massive family secret is revealed.

Haul Out the Holly: Lit Up promises a hilarious follow-up to last year's hit comedy. Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls), Wes Brown (Sweet Pecan Summer), Stephen Tobolowsky (The Goldbergs), Melissa Peterman (Young Sheldon) and Ellen Travolta (Charles in Charge) are all returning, joined by Seth Morris (History of the World: Part II) and Jennifer Asped (Party of Five). In this sequel, Emily (Chabert) and Jared (Brown) are looking to celebrate the holidays as a couple — but when a house on the block goes up for sale, it causes quite a stir among the residents of Evergreen Lane.
