Sleuthers, are you ready for another intense thriller? Hallmark’s Mystery 101: Deadly History is premiering soon. This episode stars the dream team of Jill Wagner (The Angel Tree, Stargate Atlantis), Kristoffer Polaha (Jurassic World: Dominion, Wonder Woman 1984), Robin Thomas (Murphy Brown, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), and Peter Benson (Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco).
This movie takes place right after the events of the last episode, Mystery 101: Killer Timing. This is what we know about the upcoming movie.
What Do We Know About Hallmark’s Mystery 101: Deadly History?
According to the Hallmark press release, Mystery 101: Deadly History takes place the day after the events of Mystery 101: Killer Timing. Amy (Wagner), Travis (Polaha), and Graham (Thomas) travel to Ithaca, New York to find Amy’s Uncle Alastair (Peter Benson).
Uncle Alastair is missing. He is a college professor in the Ithaca area. In addition, his valuable research is also missing. This research is very personal. Moreover, it is information on the accidental death of a prominent family heir 50 years year ago. Lastly, Alistair believed this death may have been a murder!
Joining forces with the local sheriff, Amy and Travis start to work their way through the clues, and suspects. This maze of information includes an “acerbic” corporate CEO, an eccentric patriarch, and Alastair’s estranged wife. However, Amy has something in common with her. She is also a professor who specializes in crime fiction.
The Ending Promises To Be A Shocker!
Fans of Hallmark’s Mystery 101 series know that these are not ordinary mysteries. Sometimes there are some surprises. It sounds like Jill Wagner is sharing that there will be some big surprises in Deadly History.
She wrote on Instagram, “An all-new episode airs August 1st on @hallmarkmovie. @stacey.harding was the director and she was amazing to work with! Of course, @polahaha and @robinthomasactor slayed it again. All of the cast and crew were at the top of their game. @johnchristianplummer surprised the heck out of me with this ending!!! This is a good one ladies and gentlemen! Enjoy.”
Kristoffer Polaha concurs. He went to Instagram and made a point of mentioning the great screenwriting by John Christian Plummer. “We got a new one for you #mystery101 fans! @jillwagner, @robinthomasactor, and me -@polahaha- are bringing the heat for some summer fun and mystery. Our director @stacey.harding crushed it on this film!! We had a great time making this one and I know you’re gonna love it! @johnchristianplummer has written every single episode and each one gets better than the last! Wait till you see how this one ends!!!
Subsequently, co-star Robin Thomas, revealed that the trio of Wagner, Polaha, and himself “dug deep.” He wrote on Instagram, “Here we go again. The latest installment premiere’s August 1 on Hallmark movies and mysteries channel @jillwagner @polahaha and me @robinthomasactor dug deep on this one.”
One fun fact is that Robin Thomas played Kristoffer Polaha’s father in Life Unexpected. Of course, in the Mystery 101 series, Thomas plays Jill Wagner’s father. It is all in the family!
