Eric Mabius, star of Hallmark’s series “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” teased the idea that Hallmark might bring back the franchise for another movie in a recent interview. However, he later confirmed that there is no new movie in the works, and is simply hopeful that another movie will be made one day.
Mabius Said a New Movie Was Not Confirmed
In an interview in late April 2023 with Australia’s Today Extra, Mabius spoke about the idea of a new “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” franchise.
One of the hosts noted that the franchise has had a continuous run for years, and asked Mabius if there would be another “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” film.
Mabius replied, “There is, and what a wonderful project. Martha Williamson, the one who created ‘Touched by an Angel,’ has had a great run… It’s just brilliant, because it’s a mixture of romance and comedy and heartfelt intent without being syrupy.”
The interview is not available to watch outside of Australia, but one alert fan shared a clip of his answer about “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” on Twitter.
In a tweet, Mabius confirmed that a new movie isn’t planned at this time, he’s simply hopeful there will be one in the future.
He tweeted: “I was only speaking in the general about another possible movie. Repeat, there is NOTHING definitive as of right now.”
One fan noted that Mabius’ answer sounded “very hopeful and promising.”
Another fan tweeted, “What? A new #SignedSealedDeliveredMovie? Don’t mess with me & get my hopes up, unless this is really happening! It would be too good to be true! What network? #POstables #Hearties”
Hallmark Media has also not made any announcement confirming a renewal.
However, the hope that there could be another movie in the franchise one day isn’t without merit. During a TCA event in August 2022, Lisa Hamilton Daly, Hallmark Media EVP of Programming, said they weren’t finished with the franchise, Variety reported.
“As far as ‘Good Witch’ — which I think we’re always interested in thinking about what we can do with our most popular IP — I can’t announce anything specific about that,” Daly shared at the time. “That also holds for ‘Signed, Sealed and Delivered’ — don’t think we’re finished with that.”
Wonya Lucas, President and CEO of Hallmark Media, said that fans’ letters about the mystery series were being noticed.
“The fandom and the passion for that franchise is usual, and so we listen,” Lucas said. “We hear.”
Mabius Shared the Interview on His Patreon Account
Mabius shared the interview in a post on his Patreon account, which he also shared on Twitter. The main focus of the interview was about a possible reboot series based on the movie “Cruel Intentions.” He starred in the movie with Sarah Michelle Gellar, Selma Blair, Joshua Jackson, and Reese Witherspoon.
Mabius wrote: “Did this lil’ Interview with Australian TODAY EXTRA last night!” He linked to an article about the interview, which didn’t mention his comments about “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”
Mabius recently had a cameo role in Hallmark’s 2022 movie, “Haul Out the Holly,” starring Lacey Chabert and Wes Brown. His appearance was brief but dramatic. Many other Hallmark stars also had cameos in Christmas films during the 2022 season, including Kimberley Sustad (“Three Wise Men & a Baby”), Chris McNally (“Christmas Class Reunion”), Pascale Hutton (“We Wish You a Married Christmas,”) Kristoffer Polaha (“Haul Out the Holly,”) Wes Brown (“My Southern Family Christmas”), Jonathan Bennett (“When I Think of Christmas”), Peter Benson (“When I Think of Christmas”), and Nikki DeLoach (“Five More Minutes” sequel).
Note: Heavy’s article has been updated to indicate that a new movie is not confirmed.
