Hallmark Announces NEW "Summer Nights" 2024 Movie Schedule!

Updated: Jul 3

Following Passport to Love in June and Christmas in July, Hallmark's annual Summer Nights event kicks off in August 2024. On tap are five new movies premiering on Hallmark Channel and two new mysteries debuting on Hallmark Mystery!

Hallmark Summer Nights 2024 New Movie Schedule
Check out the new movies coming to Hallmark during Summer Nights 2024!

Junebug Starring Autumn Reeser and Aaron O'Connell


Premieres: Saturday, August 3, 2024, at 8pm Eastern (Hallmark Channel)


This movie marks Autumn Reeser's 20th project for Hallmark! Her journey with the network started back in 2012 with Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade, though fans haven't seen her since the second Wedding Veil trilogy in 2023.


Reeser will be starring opposite model and actor Aaron O'Connell who has only appeared in two Hallmark movies thus far: 12 Gifts of Christmas in 2015 and With Love, Christmas from 2017.


PLOT:


When an eight-year-old version of herself starts appearing to her, Juniper (Reeser) begins to realize that her life is not what she had hoped it would be as a child. Young Junebug pushes Juniper to achieve her dreams, to start writing again, and to collaborate with the cute artist Alex (O’Connell) that she recently met to get her life back on track.


A story centering on one's "inner child" is a little different, but a writer searching for inspiration is a storyline that has been wildly overdone. Let's hope Reeser and O'Connell will make it feel fresh.



My Dreams of You Starring Skyler Samuels and Kapil Talwalkar


Premieres: Saturday, August 10, 2024, at 8pm Eastern (Hallmark Channel)


It's a daring move to pair two people who aren't widely recognized in the Hallmark world!


Skylar Samuels is the young Aurora Teagarden in Something New, which premiered in 2023 on Hallmark Mystery. If you aren't a mystery buff, you may have never seen her.


Kapil Talwalkar is new to Hallmark, though you may recognize him from the 2023 reboot of Night Court.


PLOT:


Grace (Samuels) has recurring dreams about a handsome stranger named Michael (Talwalkar) due to a mix-up in Dream Central. When they finally meet in person, Grace is shocked to learn he has no idea who she is.


It remains to be seen if Hallmark fans will warm to this unlikely couple or if the casting director will eat crow. The plot sounds very unique, so that may help draw an audience.




A Costa Rican Wedding Starring Rhiannon Fish and Christopher Russell


Premieres: Saturday, August 17, 2024, at 8pm Eastern (Hallmark Channel)


Rhiannon Fish and Christopher Russell are very familiar and beloved Hallmark celebrities, though both actors have appeared in romcoms across various networks.


PLOT:


A clumsy maid of honor (Fish) gets help from her handsome nemesis (Russell) when things go awry at her best friend’s Costa Rican wedding.


While this movie sounds like another tired and worn plot, the scenery will undoubtedly be a spectacular distraction, and fans will enjoy seeing two Hallmark stars they love.


The Magic of Lemon Drops Starring Lyndsy Fonseca and Ian Harding


Premieres: Saturday, August 24, 2024, at 8pm Eastern (Hallmark Channel)


Lyndsy Fonseca has starred in Next Stop, Christmas and Where Are You, Christmas? for Hallmark, while Ian Harding has only appeared once in a Hallmark film, headlining Ghosts of Christmas Always.

PLOT:


When Lolly’s (Fonseca) Aunt gives her three magical lemon drops, she gets to experience what her life would have been like if she had made different choices and lived those unfulfilled dreams.


Fantasy films have not been in abundance lately on Hallmark Channel, so this movie sounds promising. It's interesting that both of the movies these actors have starred in for Hallmark have also been of the fantasy genre. I think we can expect this movie to be a good one.




Head Over Heels Starring Rebecca Dalton and Olivier Renaud


Premieres: Saturday, August 31, 2024, at 8pm Eastern on Hallmark Channel


Rebecca Dalton has appeared in a few Hallmark movies to date, including the Christmas in July premiere of Falling Like Snowflakes. You may remember Olivier Renaud from the 2024 Hallmark movie, Romance with a Twist. Interestingly, both actors have already starred together in a movie on another network called Christmas in Big Sky Country.


PLOT:


A suburban girl at heart, Addison (Dalton), is off to prove herself in the world of high-end fashion footwear when she lands a life-changing internship at an Upper East Side studio leading up to the star-studded New York Fashion Week. Addison is determined to hold onto her integrity and her family values while struggling to balance it all and forge a path to success and romance, although she may fall head over heels while trying to make her dreams come true.


Nothing new to see here, either. In fact, Dalton just starred in something similar for Hallmark in 2024 titled Christmas by Design. Oh, well, she's beautiful and he's handsome, so we'll probably like it!




Jazz Ramsey: A K-9 Mystery Starring Rachel Skarsten and Corey Sevier


Premieres: Friday, August 2, 2024, at 9pm Eastern (Hallmark Mystery)


Rachel Skarsten has starred in several Hallmark movies including her most recent, Christmas Island and The Royal Nanny. Corey Sevier is also a Hallmark staple, appearing in movies like Everything Christmas, The Dog Lover's Guide to Dating, and Noel Next Door.

PLOT:


When Jazz Ramsey (Skarsten) and her crime detection dog Zeus stumble upon an old crime scene, the K-9 trainer, her star pup, and ex-boyfriend and lead detective Nick (Sevier) are thrown into the investigation.


Hallmark Mystery fans are always asking for new cozy mysteries, and this one has potential. I am not a fan of Skarsten, but I will tune in to see Sevier who is one of my favorites!


These two celebrities have also worked together previously. Both played in a series called Little Men based on a Louisa May Alcott novel. The series ran from 1998-1999 for a total of 26 episodes.


Nelly Knows Mysteries: A Fatal Engagement Starring Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith


Premieres: Friday, August 23, 2024, at 9pm Eastern (Hallmark Mystery)


Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith have starred in multiple Hallmark movies both separately and together along with being a couple in the series When Calls the Heart.


A mystery movie with these two? Yes, please!


PLOT:


When an unusual handwritten letter arrives at Nelly’s (Hutton) office, she identifies the handwriting as belonging to her childhood friend Dahlia (Sarah Grey), claiming her boyfriend Blake (Julian Haig) is being unfaithful. Determined to help, Nelly wants some answers and rushes to Blake’s home only to find his dead body. When Dahlia becomes the prime suspect, the new, handsome Detective in town, Michael Hogan (Smith) must work with Nelly to prove that her childhood friend is not the killer everyone believes her to be.
