Hallmark Sets More Christmas Movie Marathons for All Your Self-Quarantine Needs (Exclusive)

Hallmark Movies Now, its streaming service, is also offering a free trial period for viewers. Plus, 60 movies for you to cozy up with!

Christmas in March? Why not.

Hallmark is going all in on holiday movie marathons for the second straight weekend, ET has exclusively learned, after last week's three-day trip down holiday lane proved a welcomed cure-all for the self-quarantine blues amid the coronavirus outbreak that's forced much of the U.S. to stay home. 

Not only will Hallmark Channel return with its special "We Need a Little Christmas" marathon this weekend starting noontime on Friday, March 27, its sister network will be joining in on the holiday cheer. Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air its own lineup of original Christmas movies beginning that same day at 11 a.m. ET/PT.

"I was delighted to hear, many many fans reaching out on social media saying, 'Please show the Christmas movies, they make me so happy!'" Hallmark star Candace Cameron Bure told ET's Katie Krause last week. "So happy that Hallmark heard the message and is gonna run them."

Hallmark Channel's weekend lineup, consisting of 31 "Countdown to Christmas" movies, kicks off with Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa, starring Jill Wagner and Holly Robinson Peete, and ends with Jingle Around the Clock, starring Brooke Nevin, on Monday, March 30. The premiere of Just My Type, as well as new episodes of When Calls the Heart and its spinoff, When Hope Calls, will air as scheduled.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' 29-movie yuletide marathon begins with A Bramble House Christmas, starring Autumn Reeser, and culminates with Holiday for Heroes, starring Melissa Claire Egan, on Sunday, March 29.

Additionally, the Hallmark Movies Now streaming service is offering a free 30-day trial for new users, while Hallmark Publishing is providing a free e-book, A Country Wedding, on its website. Select e-book titles are available for $0.99.
