The Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries have announced their schedule of brand-new movies for April 2023. Here’s a look at what Hallmark is planning in addition to new episodes of “Ride” every Sunday night on the Hallmark channel.
If you miss any of the new movies on their premiere date, you can catch them again on one of the many days that Hallmark or Hallmark Mysteries airs encore presentations. Note that the schedule is subject to change.
Saturday, April 1: ‘Love in the Maldives’
Hallmark’s new movie “Love in the Maldives” premieres on Saturday, April 1 at 8 p.m. Eastern on the Hallmark Channel. This movie stars Jocelyn Hudon and Jake Manley.

“Love in the Maldives” marks Jocelyn Hudon’s return to Hallmark since she starred in “When Hope Calls.” Hudon did not return for the Christmas special of “When Hope Calls” when the series was picked up by Great American Family.
