Hannah Swensen fans, rejoice! A new movie in the Hannah Swensen Mystery series is in the works at Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Alison Sweeney, who plays Hannah, shared the exciting news and revealed that she wrote the script for the movie.
Victor Webster Joins the Cast
Alison Sweeney is thrilled to reunite with her former Days of our Lives and The Wedding Veil co-star Victor Webster in One Bad Apple: A Hannah Swensen Mystery. She praised his talent and expressed her excitement about having him join the Hannah Swensen family.
Cameron Mathison’s Absence
However, fans noticed that Alison didn’t mention Cameron Mathison, who plays Hannah’s fiance, Mike Kingston. This sparked speculation about his involvement in future Hannah Swensen Mystery movies, given his recent deal with Good American Family (GAF).
GAF Deal and Potential Impact
Cameron Mathison signed a multi-picture deal with GAF, Hallmark’s competitor, which may prevent him from appearing in future Hannah Swensen Mystery movies. While he hasn’t explicitly stated his departure from the series, Alison’s lack of mention and the addition of Victor Webster seem to confirm his absence.
One Bad Apple: A Hannah Swensen Mystery
The new movie is based on Joanne Fluke’s novel Apple Turnover Murder. Hannah teaches a college baking class where a colleague is murdered. During her search for the killer, she meets Lake Eden’s prosecuting attorney, Chad Norton, played by Victor Webster. Chad captures Hannah’s attention, hinting at a new love interest.
Returning Cast Members
Gabriel Hogan (Norman), Barbara Niven (Delores), Tess Atkins (Michelle), and Lisa Durupt (Andrea) will all reprise their roles in One Bad Apple: A Hannah Swensen Mystery.
The premiere date for the next movie in the Hannah Swensen Mystery series hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s expected to air in late summer or early fall.
Hannah Swensen movies can be streamed on Hallmark Now.
