It’s officially fall, which means cooler temps, changing leaves and looking forward to all of the Hallmark Christmas movies you’ll be watching soon. The network has announced its 2022 Countdown to Christmas schedule, and the heartwarming, family-friendly programming will begin on Friday, Oct. 21.

Hallmark Christmas movies will be shown around the clock on Hallmark and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. In addition, subscribers to the Hallmark Movies Now streaming service will have access to more than 150 Christmas movies, with new content added every week.

We’ve got the complete rundown, with some films sure to become new favorites. So mark your calendar and ensure you have everything you need to cozy up on the couch because, as they say in this promo video, it’s going to be “sweater than ever.”

Beginning Friday, Oct. 21, a new holiday flick will premiere on the Hallmark Channel every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m EST. You can also enjoy a new Christmas movie every Saturday at 10 p.m. EST on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

Some of the Hallmark Christmas movies you can look forward to include:

  • “Noel Next Door” kicks off the Countdown to Christmas movie schedule. Starring Natalie Hall as a hard-working single mom who exchanges words with her seemingly-grouchy neighbor, played by Corey Sevier.

  • “A Holiday Spectacular,” set in 1958, stars Ginna Claire Mason as Maggie, who puts her wedding plans on hold and sneaks off to New York City to dance in the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall.

  • “The Holiday Sitter,” starring Jonathan Bennett and George Krissa, is the first Hallmark Christmas movie with an LGBTQ couple as the focus.

This film premiers on Sunday, Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. EST.
