Jesse Metcalfe was recently at Christmas Con talking about Christmas movies for the throngs of adoring fans. However, that does not mean he did not talk about his Hallmark Signature Mystery, Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries.
What is his latest update on the stalled mystery series?
Jesse Metcalfe On Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries ‘It’s Not My Call’
Who knew that Christmas Con Pasadena was going to be rife with Hallmark mystery news? When Rachel from the Hallmarkies Podcast spoke to Jesse Metcalfe, they discussed Chesapeake Shores, A Country Wedding, and Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries.
Sleuthers want to know what is happening with this series. It has been over 15 months since the last installment. What does Jesse have to say about the series?
“I thought those mysteries, the Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries, were really well crafted. They weren’t obvious to figure out. You know, they’re a little bit more complicated. They’re a little more gritty. There was a little more action.”
He then went on to discuss working with Sarah Lind, his co-star.
“I absolutely loved playing opposite Sarah Lind. I think she’s a really talented actor. Again, I thought we had a great repartee and great chemistry.”
Next, Jesse shared whether there would be more in this series. Moreover, he revealed how much this series meant to him.
“I don’t know if Hallmark is doing anymore. You know that hurts my heart because that was really my baby. And, you know they allowed me to be an executive producer. So, I was involved in every aspect of the production of those movies, and I was just incredibly proud of them.”
Lastly, he revealed that making more mysteries was “not my call.”
“I’d love to come back and make some more, but you know, it’s not my call.”
However, there is something he did not say.
Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries Have Not Been Canceled
Jesse Metcalfe discussed the future of Hallmark’s Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries. While he discussed how much he enjoyed working on them, working with Sarah Lind, and that this was a personal project, he did not say that they were canceled.
Why is this important?
That is because some of the Hallmark mystery movie stars have been told that their mysteries were axed. That includes Alexa PenaVega and the Picture Perfect Mysteries, Danica McKellar and the Matchmaker Mysteries, and Kellie Martin and the Hailey Dean Mysteries.
When Candace Cameron Bure left Hallmark for GAC, Hallmark announced on social media that they did not have any plans to make any new Aurora Teagarden Mysteries.
Over a year ago, Dylan Neal indicated on his social media that he is developing another non-Hallmark mystery series. Therefore, another Gourmet Detective doesn’t seem to be on the cards.
Lastly, at the beginning of the college admissions scandal, Hallmark fired Lori Loughlin and removed all of her content from the network. However, this summer, Garage Sale Mysteries have been quietly added to Hallmark Now streaming.
On the other hand, Kristoffer Polaha said at Christmas Con that they want to make another Mystery 101 movie. He included the names of some Hallmark Media executives who he had spoken to before letting fans know. They need a few things to work out, such as timing and getting the right movie out there.
Hopefully, Hallmark will also consider making more Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries. They have not axed it, therefore there is still a chance.
