Lacey Chabert’s ‘Dancing Detective’ & a New ‘Aurora Teagarden’ Will Premiere in June

The summer lineup includes two new mystery movies that will air on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Both are premiering on Friday night, marking a shift in Hallmark’s mystery movie schedule.

ET Online reported that Will Kemp and Lacey Chabert will be starring in “The Dancing Detective: A Deadly Tango” on Friday, June 2, at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific. The movie was filmed on location in Malta and will remind many viewers of the duo’s “Christmas Waltz” movie from 2021. The news of the movie’s premiere date comes shortly after Deadline revealed that a “Christmas Waltz” sequel is in the works, however it’s not yet known if the sequel is going to air on Hallmark or somewhere else.

The plot is about detective Constance Bailey (Chabert,) who goes undercover as a contestant in a ballroom dance competition to investigate a murder. She enlists Sebastian Moore (Kemp), a “charismatic and free-spirited performer” to train her. Their character descriptions are reminiscent of the characters they played in “Christmas Waltz.”

ET Online also revealed that the prequel “Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Something New” will be premiering Friday, June 9 at 9 p.m. Eastern. This movie will star Skyler Samuels, Evan Roderick, and Marilu Henner. Samuels is playing a younger Aurora (previously played by Candace Cameron Bure.) But Henner returns as Aurora’s mother.
