Since 'Summer Villa' first premiered on the Hallmark Channel, Saturday night (July 23, 2016), I have been hearing wonderful feedback, raving reviews - on how much everyone enjoyed this newest Hallmark Movie. "Instant favorite", I have heard many say!

From the start, I felt the story could have easily been one of those great old cinema classics that we now only see on TCM, in the style of, perhaps, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. Loving those classic movies as I do, I was instantly drawn into 'Summer Villa' starring two of Hallmark's favorites - Hilarie Burton ('Surprised by Love') and Victor Webster ('The Magic Stocking').
And, now there seems to be the possibility that 'Summer Villa' may sequel into 'Christmas Villa'!!!
The very first sign of this potentially taking place was discovered by - Sherry in California, who mentioned it to me back in May!, when she noticed Christmas Villa mentioned in an Instagram post, while the cast was filming #SummerVilla!

Quote: "Next time I'll be there for Christmas Villa!"
Then, after the premiere of 'Summer Villa', Lisa C. from the Hallmark Facebook Fan Group, shared she discovered a tweet from entertainment reporter Rachael Ellenbogen, who shared some exciting news on 'Christmas Villa'!
The Tweet reads:
"#OTH's Hilarie Burton said today that @hallmarkchannel is planning a Christmas sequel to tonight's #SummerVilla & I already can't wait." -Rachael Ellenbogen
(By the way, for those who may not know, OTH stands for 'One Tree Hill', which was a popular drama television series from 2003 to 2012. Hilarie Burton was one of the cast members who recently reunited for a fan convention.)
So... that is the news we know, so far, on Christmas Villa! Gauging on how much everyone loved 'Summer Villa'... I'm sure a sequel would be most welcome into everyone's homes - this Christmas!!!
