Some channels, like Netflix and Disney+, are holiday dabblers. They happily bring new titles every November and December, but it’s like extra sprinkles on top. The main fare they deliver — like The Witcher and The Book of Boba Fett — is where their hearts lie. But then there’s Hallmark. This year, Hallmark’s 2021 Christmas movie schedule doesn’t just have a dozen or even two dozen new movies, but 41 brand new titles for fans to indulge. This channel isn’t just here for the holiday movies; it commits fully to the Christmas spirit, raining down new films like a snow machine gone berserk.

If you’re just now tuning in for the Christmas movie fare, you’re going to need to have a seat, because there’s already a backlog of titles to get through. Hallmark has been churning out brand new films since a whole week before Halloween. (Listen, spooky season isn’t in the channel’s wheelhouse.) The calendar is only just now reaching the holidays properly, and there’s already over a month’s worth of releases ready to watch.

Fans can check out films already here like Danica McKellar’s You, Me and the Christmas Trees and Tamera Mowry-Housley’s The Santa Stakeout. Or, you can wait for some of the highly anticipated upcoming titles like Rachael Leigh Cook’s Tis the Season to be Merry. And don’t forget there are technically three slates of Hallmark films: “Countdown to Christmas,” “Miracles of Christmas,” and “Movies & Mistletoe.”

Here’s the full Hallmark 2021 Christmas movie lineup:
