UPDATED: Hallmark Announces FIVE New Movies for May 2023!

Between Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, fans have been treated to 12 new movies spanning March and April 2023.  

As TV infomercials always tease, "But wait!  There's more!"  

Hallmark is cranking out an additional FIVE new movies during May 2023.

4 New Hallmark Movies Coming in May 2023

1.  When Love Springs Premieres May 6 at 8pm Eastern

When Love Springs-Hallmark

This movie uses the "fake boyfriend" trope.  Starring Rhiannon Fish and James William O'Halloran, the movie is about Rory (Fish) who goes to a quaint B&B on the lake where her parents are renewing their vows.  She bumps into the ex-boyfriend who broke who heart who is there with his new girlfriend.  To save face, Rory grabs onto the B&B owner, Noah (O'Halloran), and pretends he is her boyfriend.  Why would Noah go along with this charade?  The B&B is failing, but a travel blogger is coming to review the place.  With a background in PR, Rory offers to help Noah prepare in exchange for him pretending to be her boyfriend.

You can watch a trailer for the movie here

2.  Dream Moms Premieres May 13 at 8pm Eastern

Danielle (Mowry-Housley) was once an off-Broadway performer and backup singer, and Claire (Hobbs) was an aspiring dancer.  Both had dreams of making it to Broadway, but motherhood changed their priorities.  

Danielle's brother, who owns a dance studio, introduces the two women and encourages them to compete in a nationally televised talent contest.  As they practice, both women rediscover their passion and purpose.

When a competing conflict arises, the two women decide to follow through in order to set an example for their families:  follow your dreams because it's never too late to become who you want to be.

Dream Moms sounds like a story many of us moms can relate to, which is why Hallmark scheduled it to premiere over Mother's Day weekend.  We will also get to hear Mowry-Housley show off her vocal talents with three original songs written specifically for the movie. 


Dream Moms also kicks off Hallmark's "Make Her Mark" Women's Directing Program, which is a creation of Ashley Williams that allows an aspiring female director to shadow an established director for the duration of the entire process before directing her own Hallmark movie.  I'm not a fan of this pro-feminist and sexist concept because it implies that women are marginalized by men, which they are not.  As usual, Hallmark has to pair a woke talking point rooted in identity politics with this project instead of solely focusing on entertainment value.

3.  A Jane DaSilva Mystery:  Inheritance Lost (Previously Titled Case of the Broken Song) Premieres May 14 at 7pm Eastern

Jane DaSilva (Sweetin) is a singer who inherits the family foundation--a non-profit detective agency that helps people who don't have the resources to help themselves.  Both Detective John Cameron (Huszar) and Jane's aunt mentor her as she takes on her first case surrounding a mother's untimely death years previously.  Jane runs into danger as she investigates a multi-level marketing company that took advantage of her client's fragile mom.

4.  Love in Zion National:  A National Park Romance Premieres May 20 at 8pm Eastern

Busby plays Lauren, a curator trying to prove that a set of ancient vases belongs with the Pueblo Nation.  She heads to Zion to substantiate her claim and along the way meets Adam, a native Puebloan park ranger who joins her on her mission.

This is Gridley's first Hallmark movie, so it will be interesting to see if he will be a "keeper."

5.  Carrot Cake Murder:  A Hannah Swensen Mystery (working title) Premieres May 21 at 7pm Eastern

Alison Sweeney and Cameron Mathison

When a skeleton is discovered amid the rubble of a building during a renovation, residents are shocked that one of Lake Eden's beloved citizens is not who he claimed to be.  As Hannah launches her own investigation into the matter, much to her fiancĂ©'s dismay (Mathison), she tries to piece together the events that led to the murder and learn the victim's true identity.  Hannah even calls on her mother as she works to bring the killer to justice and uncover the truth.

This movie is based on the novel by Joanne Fluke called Carrot Cake Murder.  You can find the book here:

Lacey Chabert Compromises Her Faith in Hallmark's "Groundswell"

Image:  Crown Media Lacey Chabert Is a Hallmark A-Lister Before Candace Cameron Bure left Hallmark for Great American Family, fans would good-naturedly spar over who should be crowned the network's Queen of Christmas --Bure or Lacey Chabert.  Starring in more leading roles on Hallmark than other actresses, both ladies seemed to retain a firm reign over the network, evidenced by their massive viewing audience. All fans have their favorite Chabert movie, but there's no denying that A Christmas Waltz was the number one most watched original movie premiere in 2020, and in 2022, The Wedding Veil broke Hallmark viewing records by drawing in more than 3.3 million live viewers.  In fact, The Wedding Veil outperformed all of Hallmark's 2021 movies, proving Chabert's popularity shows no sign of waning. Surprisingly, as many familiar faces left Hallmark for Great American Family, like Jen Lilley and CCB, Chabert not only stayed with Hallmark, but she also signed a 2-year deal

Did You Notice THIS Change In Hallmark's "Raise a Glass to Love?"

Starring:  Laura Osnes and Juan Pablo di Pace Released:  2021 (Fall Harvest) Summary:  An aspiring Master Sommelier returns to her family vineyard to study and is intrigued by the natural methods of the handsome new Argentinian winemaker. Magic happens when Hallmark actually uses talented actors instead of inexperienced "newbies." Jenna's Boyfriend, Aidan, Isn't A Weiner When a female lead already has a boyfriend before she meets her true love, Hallmark traditionally casts the secondary male character as a bit of a jerk, someone homely, or a puny fella so viewers won't get attached to him and be upset when he's kicked to the curb.  A recent example is Callie's ex-boyfriend, Joe, in Roadhouse Romance . Played by Adil Zaidi, no one is heartbroken when Callie decides against rekindling her romance with high school sweetheart, Joe. In a refreshing change-up, Raise a Glass to Love pairs Jenna Savern (Laura Osnes) with Aidan Parker (Matthew James Dowden).  Aida

Take This Trivia QUIZ on Hallmark's "The Wedding Veil"

The Wedding Veil Plot Summary   The Wedding Veil is the first installment of a new trilogy that follows three longtime college friends who discover a mysterious, antique veil fabled to unite its bearer with her true love.  After discovering a long-lost painting, museum curator Avery and new board member Peter investigate the artwork's origins as they plan a gala to unveil it. Starring :  Lacey Chabert, Kevin McGarry, Autumn Reeser, and Alison Sweeney Lacey always makes a beautiful bride!  Image:  Crown Media The Wedding Veil Is Inspired by Lori Wilde's Book Churning out tons of new movies each year takes a toll on Hallmark's creativity.  How many plots can be about a writer, and is it common for so many people to suffer from amnesia? Recycled stories grow wearisome, but when Hallmark taps authors outside their own bubble, fans benefit from fun, light-hearted romances that are refreshingly unique. The Wedding Veil  is inspired by the book, There Goes the Bride by Lori

Hallmark's "The Color of Rain" the True Story of Gina Kell and Michael Spehn

Starring:  Lacey Chabert and Warren Christie Released:  2014 Summary:  While consoling each other over the recent loss of their spouses, a man and a woman grow close and fall in love. Image:  Crown Media, United States LLC Gina Kell and Michael Spehn Find Love Despite Tragedy You've seen the movie, so you know the plot, but did you catch that it's based on a real-life story? Gina Kell's husband died on Christmas Day, 2005, from a rare and incurable cancer, leiomyocarcoma, which he battled for three years. Weeks later, Cathy Spehn died seventeen days after learning her painful headaches were a result of a brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme. It's no wonder the two gravitated toward one another. It's like parenting--people who have never had children can't really grasp what life with kids is truly like on a daily basis.  Similarly, your heart can hurt for someone who has lost their spouse, but you can't relate to them on deeper le
