Tonight is the season 5 premiere of Hallmark’s series, “Chesapeake Shores.” Here’s a look at exactly what time episode one starts and how you can watch it.
The Episode Begins at 8 PM Eastern
The new season of “Chesapeake Shores” premieres on The Hallmark Channel at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central/8 p.m. Pacific.
According to Hallmark’s schedule online, every episode is going to be premiering at that time.
This may surprise Hallmark viewers, since “Good Witch” just completed its season and new episodes for that series aired at 9 p.m. Eastern each week. In addition, “When Calls the Heart” also aired new episodes at 9 p.m. Eastern. So “Chesapeake Shores” is premiering its new episodes an hour earlier than either of the other two shows were airing.

‘Sweet Carolina’ Will Air After the Episode
Because “Chesapeake Shores” is airing an hour early on Sunday nights, this leaves time for Hallmark to air a full movie after each episode ends. This week, that movie is going to be “Sweet Carolina.”
