While it’s true that not everyone loves the holiday season, and it can sometimes be difficult, even for those who do, to get into the spirit of the season, there’s no doubt that curling up to watch an uplifting Christmas movie can help one start to feel better about this gift-giving time of the year. And, it’s also true that we are being treated to more and more films that celebrate the season every year, with many channels and streaming services offering viewers dozens of Christmas movies on TV to help us feel all of the warm and happy holiday feelings we like to experience.

As usual, there are a number of new titles to get you in the mood this year, with several films on the way in the form of upcoming Hallmark, Netflix, Lifetime, BET+, HBO Max, and other movies. Even better, you can expect to see stars like Lacey Chabert, Candace Cameron Bure (who’ll be working with GAF going forward), her former Fuller House sister Jodie Sweetin, singer Ne-Yo, Freddie Prinze Jr., Justin Hartley, Vivica A. Fox, The Talk co-host Amanda Kloots, and many, many more! So, without further ado, let’s get into the 2022 Christmas movie schedule! 

October 2022 Premieres
