Hallmark mystery fans who have been waiting for new mystery movies may be disappointed. The feel-good network has just released their Spring Into Love premieres. This is the listing of all the new March releases.
How many new mysteries will premiere in March? Sleuthers, here is the latest news.
How Many New Mysteries Airing During Hallmark’s Spring Into Love?
Hallmark has just announced its three new Spring Into Love premieres. Two movies are premiering on the regular channel. The first is Feeling Butterflies, starring Kayla Wallace, and Kevin McGarry. The other is the ER reunion called A Second Chance At Love, starring Gloria Reuben and Eriq La Salle.
On Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, there is one premiere. It is The Presence Of Love, starring Eloise Mumford and Julian Morris. This would be a non-mystery movie on this channel. The HMM movies are often dealing with more sensitive subjects including the loss of a loved one, as in this case.
That means no new mysteries premiering in March.
Only Two New Mysteries In Three Months Of 2022
Now that Hallmark has announced its three Spring Into Love movies, Sleuthers know exactly how many mysteries will premiere in the first quarter of 2022. That would be two mystery movies.
In 2021, by the end of March, Hallmark premiered four new mysteries. In 2022, by the end of March, that number is cut in half. Last year, there was a total of 15 new mystery premieres. Hallmark will have a lot of catching up if they will match that number.
A lot of Sleuthers have heard rumors that Chronicle Mysteries and Crossword Mysteries have also been canceled. However, no one has shared any official news on either.
There has not been any word on Mystery 101, Hannah Swensen (Murder She Baked), or Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries.
However, Kristoffer Polaha recently revealed on the Hallmarkie’s podcast that their numbers were good. On another episode of this same podcast, Alison Sweeney explained that Hallmark will listen to fans. If fans are talking about a mystery series, the odds of Hallmark making more episodes are increased.
If that is the case, the network surely loves Mystery 101. That cliffhanger ending still has people talking.
What Are Hallmark’s Upcoming Mysteries?
Hallmark is premiering two mysteries in February. The first is a brand new mystery, while the second sleuther is someone everyone knows.
The first movie is called Cut, Color, Murder. This is a new Hallmark Signature murder starring Julie Gonzalo and Ryan McPartlin. McPartlin also wrote the script for this new movie. This mystery premieres on Sunday, February 6, at 9 p.m. Eastern, on HMM.
According to the Hallmark press release, Ali Bowden (Gonzalo) owns Monarch Beauty Salon. While she is beautifying the participants in the local beauty pageant, she gets exposed to a lot of local gossip.
Moreover, this happens to be pretty handy, as someone was murdered at the pageant, and now her sister Chelsea (Grace Beedie) is on the suspect list.
In addition, there’s a new detective in town, and his name is Kyle Crawford (McPartlin). Ali’s past, including her own husband’s murder, comes into play as the two try to solve the latest murder.
The second movie is the upcoming Aurora Teagarden: Haunted By Murder. The premiere of this new mystery is on Sunday, February 20, at 9 p.m., Eastern.
This movie is about a haunted house. Moreover, it is when Aurora met Sally. In this new mystery, Candace Cameron Bure and Lexa Doig’s real-life daughters, Natasha Bure, and Mia Shanks star as young Aurora and Sally. Furthermore, fans cannot wait for this episode!
