What Is Not On The List?
Fans of The Gourmet Detective may be a bit disappointed to see that there is not a sixth episode slated. Alison Sweeney’s Chronicle Mysteries are not included in this list. In addition, We do not see Danica McKellar’s Matchmaker Mysteries series. Lastly, the status of the Will Shortz produced Crosswords Mysteries, starring Lacey Chabert and Brennan Elliot is also not included in the Hallmark press release.
The stars could have other commitments and finding time to film may be an issue. Or, Hallmark may be considering tweaking their mystery lineup.
Has Hallmark Updated Fans On New The Royal Mysteries?
One of the biggest unsolved mysteries is Erin Krakow’s new mystery series, called The Royal Mysteries. According to Hallmark, this series stars Erin Krakow. Hearties already know her from When Calls The Heart. She plays Tanya, an employee of the Oldavian Embassy. She works with the Oldavian Prince to solve this mystery.
Because this new mystery series takes place in the fictional country of Oldavia, it is just possible that they cannot film the series where they prefer. We can assume that they wanted to film in Europe. Yet, currently, there are travel and filming restrictions due to Covid-19. In addition, Hallmark has not announced any other cast members, including the charming prince.
Perhaps Hallmark didn’t mention The Royal Mysteries in the latest press release because it will be difficult to film this year. Erin Krakow is busy filming WCTH Season 8, and the annual When Calls The Heart Christmas movie. She may also star in another Hallmark Christmas movie.
Hopefully, 2021 will see The Royal Mysteries pan out, as well as other mysteries not included in the recent Hallmark press release.
