Time to curl up on the couch with a warm pumpkin spice latte by the fireplace because fall is almost here.
Hallmark Channel’s annual “Fall Harvest” lineup officially kicks off Sept. 19 with the first of five original movie premieres, ET exclusively reveals, and wraps up Oct. 17 with Hallmark favorites Nikki DeLoach and Andrew Walker reuniting for Sweet Autumn.
For five straight weekends this fall, Hallmark will roll out a new movie each Saturday. Starting with Love at Daisy Hills, starring Cindy Busby, on Sept. 19, the network will follow with weekly premieres of Love at Look Lodge with Clark Backo, Country at Heart with Jessy Schram and Niall Matter, My Best Friend’s Bouquet with Chaley Rose and the aforementioned Sweet Autumn.
The majority of the films were filmed prior to COVID, except My Best Friend’s Bouquet, which was completed during quarantine, and Sweet Autumn, which is just beginning production.
Below are Hallmark’s five new “Fall Harvest” movies, including exclusive first looks at four.

When Jo (Busby) realizes that her family’s general store in Daisy Hills (built by her late mother) is losing money, her father, Duke, calls in a favor to help out the store. Unfortunately, Duke’s help is Jo’s ex-boyfriend, Blake (Williams), former Daisy Hills native-turned-New York business consultant. They argue over the approach to saving the store: Jo understands the personal touch needed for a small town while Blake focuses more on how to make a profit. Eventually, they reach a compromise and find themselves falling back in love. But when Blake gets a call about his dream job back in New York City, things start to fall apart again, forcing Jo and Blake to make a decision about their future.
