Although Hallmark has not yet shared their Countdown To Christmas 2021 schedule, they are starting to leak out information on the upcoming movies. That includes the highly anticipated An Unexpected Christmas.
This movie stars Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill, Five Star Christmas), and Tyler Hynes (On The 12th Date Of Christmas, It Was Always You). Moreover, it was written by the multi-talented actor Paul Campbell (Battlestar Galactica, Turner & Hooch), who wrote and acted in the hysterical 2021 holiday movie, Christmas By Starlight.
What do we know about An Unexpected Christmas?
Bethany Joy Lenz, Tyler Hynes Star In Hallmark’s An Unexpected Christmas
Hallmark has been busy creating some holiday fun. They are still filming holiday movies for 2021. One that should be a fan favorite is An Unexpected Christmas, starring Bethany Joy Lenz and Tyler Hynes. According to Southern Living, who got the sneak peek from Hallmark, this should be a fun movie.
The synopsis for An Unexpected Christmas sounds wacky. “Jamie (Hynes) hasn’t told his family that he and his now ex-girlfriend Emily (Lenz) broke up. After an inopportune run-in with Emily at the train station in his hometown, Jamie convinces her to pretend they’re still a couple to avoid ruining Christmas for his family. Jamie and Emily engage in a week-long ruse of engaging in his family’s holiday activities together. While they’re stuck in his family’s home together, the pair discovers their relationship might still have some potential, resulting in a very unexpected Christmas.”
Hallmark’s Paul Campbell Penned An Unexpected Christmas
Hallmark hunk Paul Campbell can do more than act. According to his Instagram post, he penned An Unexpected Christmas. He shared the headline of the Southern Living article, and wrote, “Huh. Not suggesting I wrote this one, but I imagine it’s pretty fun and would urge everyone to keep their eyes out for it.”
If we base this 2021 Christmas movie with his movie last year, Christmas By Starlight, it should be a lot of fun. Campbell has a sharp wit and is known for his snappy dialogue.
Best of all, he has two extremely talented actors starring in his movie. Bethany Joy Lenz was hysterical in last year’s Five Star Christmas. As for Tyler Hynes, what isn’t he good at? He is a charming and generous actor who always elevates every movie.
The slow dribble of🎄information from Hallmark continues, as they confirm Bethany Joy Lenz and Tyler Hynes headline the now-filming AN UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS.
Perhaps they plan to announce their 2021 movies by giving 40 "exclusives" to 40 different outletshttps://t.co/qJhoqozZk6

How Many Movies In Countdown To Christmas 2021?
Although Countdown To Christmas starts in six weeks, Hallmark has yet to release how many movies, or any other bits of information. Instead, they are giving exclusives to publications.
The full lineup and premiere dates should be announced soon. Meanwhile, the feel-good network is busily filming a cornucopia of movies in the states, Canada, and even in Ireland. Sounds like there will be a variety of holiday feels.
