Over the New Year holiday weekend and just before the Hallmark Channel premiered their first "2021 New Year New Movies" movie, Hallmark revealed on their web-site some NEW "Love Ever After" movies for February, plus a classic that will premiere on their channel for the first time.

*Please Note: There may be changes or additions, so please be sure to check back for updates!



"Love Ever After" Movies - 2021:
(formerly known as: Countdown to Valentine's Day)

Valentine's Again

Previous Title: Once Upon a Winter's Date


Note: This movie is actually from 2017 and has been available to watch through Hallmark's streaming service Hallmark Movies Now and other streaming sources. This is, however, the first time this movie will premiere on the Hallmark Channel.

Premieres on TV: Sunday, February 14, 2021 at 9pm/8c

Starring: Nicky Whelan and Greg Vaughan

Story-line via Hallmark: Katherine, a workaholic executive, endures the worst Valentine's Day date of her life. On her walk home, a gypsy weaves a magical spell on her and when she wakes up the next morning, she realizes it's Valentine's Day again.

*Please note: The storyline above does refer to a woman as a "gypsy;" however, in the actual movie the woman refers to herself as Katharine's fairy Godmother. I've seen bits and pieces of this movie and to me it had a feel somewhat like "A Shoe Addict's Christmas" where Candace Cameron Bure's character Noelle was guided by her guardian angel Charlie to make the right decisions about her faith, career and love.

Mix Up in the Mediterranean

Premieres: Saturday, February 20, 2021 at 9pm/8c

Starring: Jeremy Jordan and Jessica Lowndes

Story-line via Hallmark: A small-town cook impersonates his big city chef twin to compete in a culinary contest and falls for the woman in charge of the event, who thinks he is the brother who is married.

*Please note: Hallmark has updated the storyline for this movie. I do not know, yet, if it will be family friendly. Stay tuned!

It Was Always You

Premieres: Saturday, February 27, 2021 at 9pm/8c

Starring: Erin Krakow and Tyler Hynes

Story-line: Elizabeth's engagement plans are thrown into disarray when her fiancรฉe's free-spirited brother David returns home. David's unexpected influence prompts Elizabeth to question her life decisions.




❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤



First, I know Hearties are going to be thrilled to see Erin Krakow star in an all new original Hallmark movie and funny enough, her character's name is... Elizabeth! Thank goodness neither Kevin McGarry or Chris McNally are her co-stars for this one. Her co-star is another Hallmark fan-favorite, Tyler Hynes! As Erin and Tyler filmed "It Was Always You," they shared cute pictures from the set - so it was quite obvious the two had lots of fun making it. Tyler even teased it was a Christmas movie; I think he was trying to play a little with the fans.

In addition to "It Was Always You," I'm also very much looking forward to "Beverly Hills Wedding." When this movie was in the early stages of development last summer I remember talking about it with my friend, Sherry. At that time, Andrew Walker was originally the one believed to be starring with Brooke D'Orsay, but due to Andrew filming "Christmas Tree Lane," Brendan Penny got the role. Brooke D'Orsay will always be Annie Hayes from "How to Fall in Love" and "Miss Christmas" to me - so, I just love all of her Hallmark movies!

Plus, as I've shared before, I am quite the Jane Austen enthusiast. The first of her works I instantly fell in love with as a young teenage girl was Emma. I loved the novel and over the years many adaptations on film, first the theater version starring Gwyneth Paltrow in 1996 and most of all, the 2010 PBS Masterpiece film. The Emma story will always hold a special place in my heart. It's often interesting to see various films take on the well known Austen matchmaking scheme or rather, theme (*wink*); therefore, I'm very much looking forward to seeing this modern take on the classic story with Hallmark's all new movie, "Playing Cupid."

Which of these new "Love Ever After" movies are you looking forward to seeing? Please share in comments below...

Joyous Blessings! Net

  1. Tyler Hynes has quickly become one of my favorite actors, so I'm looking forward to the movie with him and Erin Krakow (she's adorable!).
    Emma is my favorite Jane Austen book and I think the BBC film production with Romola Garai is probably my favorite version (although, I love watching all the different versions).

    1. Jane, The Emma movie with Romola Garai is, indeed, my favorite adaptation, too! It's the one I was referring to from Masterpiece Theater. Romola was fantastic in that role... wouldn't she be fun to see on Hallmark?

    1. Chris, Great question!

      The first "All of My Heart" movie premiered on Valentine's Day in 2015, and I still love that one so much! Lacey and Brennan are truly magical together and that movie started it all!

      As for a favorite Hallmark movie with an actual Valentine's day theme, my pick would be "My Secret Valentine," also starring Lacey Chabert, but with Andrew Walker this time. Those two were sooo cute together in this movie! I especially love the scene where Andrew does the fake accent! Adorable!

      Do you have a favorite Hallmark Valentine's Day movie? ❤

    2. My favorite happens to be same as yours Net! I thought Andrew and Lacey had so much fun making this. When Andrew said Lacey was the most real, genuine person he had ever worked with, I was very surprised.

    3. The only one I plan to watch is Playing Cupid. Love Tyler Hynes but not interested in It Was Always You or any of the others. I'm still watching Christmas movies. Not ready to let them go yet.

      Delete
    4. My favorite Valentine's Day Hallmark movies are My Secret Valentine and Very,Very Valentine. I Don't know if this counts as a Valentine's Day theme but The Lost Valentine.

      Delete
    5. kitkat, Same here! I'm also still making my way through the Christmas movies on my DVR! I'm in no rush to be done with them. Basically, I'm savoring each one, even the not-so-great ones that are still lighthearted and fun.

      In the meantime, I'm recording the New Year New Movies to watch later, but I might squeeze in "A New Year’s Resolution" since it's holiday related.

      Like you, I'm not ready to let go of Christmas, just yet!

    6. Chris, I like your choices for favorite Valentine's Day Hallmark movies! And, yes... the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "The Lost Valentine" is another ideal movie pick to fit the theme.

    7. Valentine Ever After, hands down. Loved the chemistry between Autumn Reeser and Eric Johnson.

    3. Great catch, Denise! I wouldn't be surprised at all if they added this in the schedule or moved things around. Or, could it possibly go to their streaming service? Anything's possible! I just hope they don't hold onto it until next year, like "A New Year's Resolution."

    4. I just went to the IMDB site and it doesn't have any actress that I know from Hallmark in it. It has two guys that I have seen in previous ones.

    5. Misty, Actress Ashley Newbrough ("Small Town Christmas") is also starring in this movie. I've seen some pics while they were filming + IMDB has just now finally added her name to the top of the cast list! She & Jon Cor look cute together; so hopefully it's a good one and we will see it on Hallmark soon! :)

    6. I don't really understand the position regarding this movie.

      Hallmark is listed as the Distributor but the film is credited to Sweet Pea Productions.

  5. That Mix Up movie sounds horrible! I don't get what Hallmark is doing, but this is such a let down after the great Taking A Shot At Love movie. It just makes me not want to watch any of them. Sorry, I also hate the movies where someone is dating or engaged to someone else and falls for some liberal type dude. Why can't it be the opposite for once?

    Sorry, but I am not interested in any of them and think it's odd that they are sticking in a lame movie from 2017. So disappointed in Hallmark.

    1. Misty, I absolutely agree!

      So, you liked "Taking A Shot At Love?" I recorded it, but haven't watched yet. I'm still catching up on Christmas! Was it family friendly?

    2. We loved it! Definitely family friendly. Alexa and Luke are two of our Hallmark favorites.

  6. I'm looking forward to Mix Up In the Mediterranean because a case of mistaken identity is always fun. And Jeremy Jordan was awesome on Supergirl. I'm also looking forward to It's Always Been You, because it's Erin Krakow and Tyler Hines and they're good in just about everything they do. Can't wait!

  7. “Playing Cupid” follows Clara Martinez, who has a knack for knowing when two people are right for each other.

  8. Eclectic selection here.

    I'll reserve judgement on some of these pairings but will be watching Brooke D'Orsay and Brendan Penny and Erin Krakow and Tyler Hynes with some interest.

    There's been a few movies with Jessica Lowndes mentioned as in the pipeline but this one with Jeremy Jordan seems to have come out of the blue - I think they'll make a good couple.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The movie with Erin and Tyler looks cute, I think it was supposed to be titled Today is not your day, and I was hoping they would change the title as that doesn't really seem very Hallmark. Initially when I saw that title show up in filming, I thought it was Lifetime, til I saw Tyler promoting it. Giles Panton is also in this movie.

    I love Andrew walker, but also LOVE Brendan Penny so excited for his movie, and Brooke D'Orsay is just so beautiful, adorable, so witty.

    I am guessing it will be an erin Krakow weekend since they are also playing Sense sensibility and snowman on that Christmas Friday the 26th.

    I didn't even notice the gay theme, but I don't know, I wasn't that thrilled with Jeremy Jordan in what small parts I saw of Holly and Ivy.

    I LOVED Nicholas Gonzalez on Christmas on the Range so happy to see him coming to hallmark :)

    1. Sabrina, Totally agree on all of your choices! Brendan & Brooke are sure to be a cute match up. You're so right - she's always "adorable and witty."

      Good catch on the Erin Krakow weekend - I'm kinda surprised it's not the weekend before to push the launch of "When Calls the Heart" Season 8, which is Sunday, Feb 21st. However, I'm sure there will be several promos for Erin's movie during the first episode of WCTH.

      I was also pleasantly surprised to see Nicholas Gonzalez's name attached to a new Hallmark movie, along with Laura Vandervoort. Since there is such a long list of Hallmark regulars, it's always interesting to see new names pop up.

  10. Yes, it was family friendly and cute movie. I liked the tone it had and the chemistry between the leads was great!

    2. I too wondered if it was family friendly. after watching Christmas by starlight and feeling they were very sneaky with the same sex couple in that, I just don't really trust the HM movies. I am looking forward to jen Lilley in snowkissed.

      I too still have so many Christmas movies to watch. I watched almost all the Lifetime movies that I recorded, didn't record them all though cause some just weren't my cup of tea. then I have the hallmark movies that I wanted to really sit and watch like USS Christmas, Waltz, Charm, Godwink 3, Time for us, so I am waiting til I have time to dedicate.

      I watched If I only Had Christmas, and it wasn't terrible (that is sometimes the only compliment I can give things, that it wasn't terrible). But it also wasn't anything spectacular. My sisters and I watched Wizard of Oz so many times over the years growing up that I know almost the entire thing by heart. so some of the references like the flying monkeys comment just seemed annoying, clichรฉ, and made me kind of mad. I mean just leave the wizard of oz alone. and while it was nice that "Darcy Gale" had all those friends that would come and she knew exactly when they would walk in the door, it got annoying too. And I did not at all feel the love with Darcy and "William" at all. I did like some of her friends but just wasn't into the wizard of oz theme, it also didn't feel to me like Darcy missed home at all like Dorothy did. Dorothy did everything so she could go home, so there really was no place like home, but for Darcy, I don't know. I am sad to say that the last good CCB Christmas movie was Switched for Christmas in 2017. And some of my favorite movies of all are hers like Let it Snow and Christmas under wraps (aka Garland). Wait, I take it back, I did like Christmas town although it is not one I watch over and over.

      Delete
    3. Sabrina, I'm with you! It wasn't terrible, but I'm still not sure how I feel about "If I Only Had Christmas." For some reason I thought it was hard to get into - as the story jumped around and the Wizard of Oz connection seemed really loosely based, it just didn't seem to fit the overall story. I think I need to re-watch it when it encores Thursday night on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Maybe that will help???

  11. Mix Up in the Mediterranean because I saw a lot of BTS from Jessica.

  12. Hallmark has taken all the fun out of their new movies for me. I'm looking forward to When Calls the Heart, but as far as movies go, I'm over it. They are trying to push an agenda and I'm not okay with it.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I just only hope for the sake of the Hearties, there is no agenda slid into WCTH. I really don't trust them anymore, they are sneaky about it too.

      Delete
    2. I feel the same way. I worry that they’re going to eventually bring those storylines to Hope Valley, and if they do, even slightly, I won’t watch any longer. It’s bad enough now having to pick and choose which movies are safe to view. I’ll be very disappointed if they do that with WCTH.

      Delete
    3. While we're on the subject of When Calls the Heart, there is one clip from the Season 8 On Location sneak peek I wanted to mention. When Erin Krakow is talking about how the show will see new characters that are "so refreshing and exciting for the town", there is a clip of two women who are seen hugging Lee and Rosemary at a train station. I'm not sure what this means, but, as I said before, I wanted to bring it up with Net and her readers. It should also be noted that this same video was shown during the Christmas Day presentation of When Calls the Heart: Home for Christmas.

      Delete
    4. Unless you are against diversity in your TV shows, you should be ok. When Calls the Heart will have a little more color when they come back. But I personally like Viv Leacock and liked his daughter in her Christmas movie, so I'm excited about it. And change isn't always bad. Can't wait to see who Elizabeth picks!

      Delete
    5. I think "When Calls the Heart" will remain a family friendly show, they know their audience. I'm so looking forward to the new season coming, along with new characters. Viv Leacock is always such an interesting, charming character, he's great in the "Hailey Dean Mysteries" and various romantic comedies. I'm interested to see if he adds a more serious or lighthearted role to the series.

  15. Speaking of Erin Krakow, does anyone know who sings that beautiful promo song for season 8 of when calls the heart? I can't find info on that anywhere.....it's such a beautiful song

    1. Are you referring to the WCTH promo with the song Breakaway? If so, that is sung by Kelly Clarkson. You can Listen or Download at Amazon - Click Here. It is such a pretty song.

      Delete
    2. No, it's another song that they have been showing the promo with more recently. It's on the hallmark channel website with the video for the promo. It's such a beautiful song but I don't recognize the singer and I don't know where to find the info....I even tried to google the lyrics to see if anything came up and nothing :(
      Thank you though!

      Delete
    3. The other SONG in the When Calls the Heart promo commercial is "Look At Me Now" by Victoria F. Beaumont. I love the feel of that song, too - it beautifully suits the series.

      You can listen to it or download it at Amazon - Click Here. Hope you enjoy it! :)

      You can also listen to the song on YouTube, plus the lyrics are listed there, as well.

  16. OMG! Thank you so much!!! That is the song!!! I could not find it no matter how hard I tried. You have so much knowledge when it comes to Hallmark so I thought I'd ask. Thank you again so much!!!
