Get your biggest mug of cocoa and your comfiest blanket at the ready — we'll be kneedeep in an overwhelming number of brand-new Hallmark Christmas movies before you can say "Phylicia Rashad."

Hallmark has just unveiled its holiday movie lineup for 2023, and it's packed with 40 heartwarming films that are sure to bring the festive cheer. This beloved annual TV movie event, known for spreading holiday magic, is set to kick off on October 20th.

31 of these delightful films will grace the Hallmark Channel as part of their Countdown to Christmas, while the remaining nine will enchant viewers on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

Hallmark Movies Now, the company's streaming service, is granting subscribers exclusive early access to two of these new premieres a full week before they make their network debut. Plus, the app will be streaming two of its own original movies, An Ice Palace Romance and Rescuing Christmas.

If that's not enough, app users can also enjoy extended versions of the 2022 original A Holiday Spectacular and Three Wise Men and a Baby. And for those craving a trip down memory lane, the app boasts a treasure trove of hundreds of movies from past and present years.

But here's the exciting twist this year: Countdown to Christmas is embracing international flavor with movies set in Germany, Norway, Scotland, and France. As if that weren't enough to pique your interest, Hallmark is teasing a "yuletide Easter Egg hunt" throughout the lineup. Expect surprise appearances, nods to beloved Hallmark classics, and past roles that will warm your heart.

As for the star-studded cast, 2023 welcomes some fresh faces into the Hallmark family, including talents like Chris Carmack, Erica Cerra, Jonathan Frakes, Mark Ghanimé, Humberly González, Bryan Greenberg, Rick Hoffman, Grace Leer, Vic Michaelis, Mishael Morgan, William Moseley, and the legendary Phylicia Rashad, among others.

Of course, no Hallmark holiday lineup is complete without the return of fan favorites. Look forward to seeing Tyler Hynes, Jonathan Bennett, Warren Christie, Paul Campbell, Andrew Walker, Brooke D'Orsay, Erin Cahill, Nikki DeLoach, Brennan Elliott, Dan Jeannotte, Bethany Joy Lenz, Luke Macfarlane, Ryan Paevey, and Kimberley Sustad spreading holiday joy once again. It's a star-studded affair that promises to make your holiday season merry and bright!
