Here are all the details.
Chesapeake Shores Is Returning For Season 6
Chesapeake Shores is coming back for Season 6. According to Deadline, the popular Hallmark series is coming back for a final season.

Details About Hallmark Series
Chesapeake Shores Season 6 will be 10 episodes long. Moreover, Hallmark will premiere it in the summer. As previously reported, they were scheduled to start shooting on Monday.
Will Jesse Metcalfe Return For Chesapeake Shores Season 6?
One question that Chesapeake Shores fans will want to know is whether Jesse Metcalfe will return to reprise his role as Trace. They tailor-made the Hallmark series for Metcalfe.
He helped make decisions such as casting Meghan Ory to play Abby. The two had worked together in the past. He saw her in this role.
Therefore, it was a shock when just a year ago, it was announced that the Desperate Housewives alum was leaving the series. Subsequently, it was later revealed that he didn’t like that the new Showrunner, Phoef Sutton (Boston Legal), did not want Trace and Abby together.
Moreover, when he recently spoke to The List, he revealed, “I think maybe the new Showrunner and maybe the producers behind that show were starting to find it challenging, figuring out really where they wanted to take these characters, even though there was a strong outline from the books [and] a strong desire by the audience to see them ultimately end up together.”
However, Jesse’s name is not on the cast list. Yet, in that recent interview, he did say that he would like to come back.
Moreover, he wants a “full circle” moment with the end result of Trace and Abby back together. “I think that’s the scenario that makes the most sense.”
Jesse Metcalfe Talks About Hallmark
On Monday, Jesse Metcalfe took to Instagram to talk about Hallmark. Moreover, he talked about Hallmark fans. He clearly loves and appreciates the Hallmark fan base.
He shared a clip of his first Hallmark movie, A Country Wedding. This is the movie he starred in with Autumn Reeser.
He wrote, “This is the movie that started it all for me at Hallmark, and introduced me to the most incredibly loyal and supportive fan base I’ve ever known. Creating moments like this, for all of YOU, is what making movies is all about. Here’s to creating many more romantic, heartwarming, moving, emotional moments that get you all up in the feels!🥲🥰”
Autumn responded, “Awwww I haven’t seen this in ages!! What a sweet scene — I always love working with you ✨”
It certainly sounds like Jesse may be back doing some Hallmark work. But, could it be Chesapeake Shores, or is it something else?
Who Is Coming Back For Chesapeake Shores Season 6?
Has Hallmark shared who is returning for Season 6? Right now, they have released the information that these actors are returning for the upcoming season: Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill), Meghan Ory (John Tucker Must Die), Treat Williams (White Collar), Barbara Niven (The Christmas Contest), Laci J. Malley (Falling Skies), Emilie Ullerup (Don’t Forget I Love You), Brendan Penny (Time For Them To Come Home For Christmas), and Andrew Francis (A Christmas Miracle For Daisy).
However, this is certainly not going to be every cast member. Therefore, it is always possible that Jesse Metcalfe could return. Moreover, there is a possibility that the show’s writers end game is Trace and Abby together forever.
