‘Chesapeake Shores’ Season 6 Renewal & Return Date Updates

Chesapeake Shores Season 6

Crown Media Chesapeake Shores Season 6

The season 5 finale of Hallmark’s “Chesapeake Shores” is upon us. But what is the latest news about whether the show has been renewed for season 6? As of the time of this article’s publication, The Hallmark Channel has not officially announced if the series is renewed for a sixth season or not as of the time of this article’s publication. Here’s a look at what the ratings and other details might predict, along with when the show would likely return if it is renewed.

Ratings Were Lower This Season

According to TV Series Finale, ratings were lower this season. The fifth season averaged about .10 in the 18-49 age range, which was about 46% lower in that demographic from the previous season, plus 15% lower in live+same day viewership ratings.

The show on average in season 5 had about 1.45 million viewers total, TV Series Finale reported. In season 4, the episodes had 1.8 million viewers, 1.77, 1.67, 1.69, and 1.54 million viewers each week. That was very similar to season 3, which averaged 1.669 to 1.413 million viewers a week. So season 5 is still within the range of the previous seasons for overall viewers, but on the lower-end of the range. And it’s had a drop in the valued 18-49 demographic.

TV Series Finale revealed that the show never had more than 1.56 million viewers this season so far, compared to frequent numbers above that in season 4.

However, when Hallmark canceled “Good Witch” they announced the news well in advance of the “Good Witch” finale. In fact, they had filmed two alternate endings and one just happened to be perfect for a series finale. Since Hallmark did that with “Good Witch,” it’s hard to imagine they would cancel “Chesapeake Shores” without letting fans know in advance. But that’s just a reason to hope for a renewal and certainly not a guarantee.

Producer Dan Paulson promised fans he would let them know as soon as season 6 is confirmed.

“We’re looking forward to Season 6,” he wrote in a very optimistic post.

When Would the Series Return for Season 6 If It’s Renewed?

If the series is renewed, it will likely return for season 6 around the same time that season 5 premiered, since Hallmark tends to keep a fairly consistent schedule for its drama series. This would have it returning in mid-to-late August 2022.

Season 5 premiered on August 15 with an episode called “A Kiss is Still a Kiss.”

Season 4 returned a little later, on August 25, probably because both “When Calls the Heart” and “Good Witch” were pushed back about a month due to edits needed after Lori Loughlin was written out of “When Calls the Heart.”

Season 3 of “Chesapeake Shores” premiered on August 5, 2018, season 2 premiered on August 6, 2017, and season 1 premiered on August 14, 2016. So the show will likely keep the same schedule for season 6 if it’s renewed.

Heavy recently asked fans on Facebook if the series should be renewed. You can cast your own vote by commenting in the post below.
