Following a four-year break, this weekend sees the return of Hallmark’s ever-popular Murder She Baked movie series. The film series returns with a new entry – Sweet Revenge – will make its US debut on Sunday August 8th, playing at 9/8c on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
Only thing is, when Sweet Revenge airs, it will no longer be under the banner heading of Murder, She Baked. This collection of films is now going under a new title: ‘A Hannah Swensen Mystery’.
Does this mean this is a whole new direction for the series, with a completely different cast? No – it is simply a name change. The Murder, She Baked series is now called A Hannah Swensen Mystery.
Hallmark has taken the decision to rebrand the Murder, She Baked/Hannah Swensen movies, to freshen up the series for its big return. However, fans should still expect to see the same mix of mystery and drama, with Alison Sweeney and Cameron Mathison reprising their roles as Hannah Swensen and Mike Kingston respectively.
Speaking about the name change, via a promo video for the new movie, lead star Alison Sweeney, said: “Hannah Swenson is back. Same characters, and delicious mysteries you love, with a new name.”
Cameron Mathison added:
“The audience is just going to love that we are back at it, but they’re not gonna expect what an incredible movie this is. They are going to have no idea who the murderer is, they are going to try and keep guessing, but there are so many curveballs and so many twists in the story.”
When Sweet Revenge airs, it will be the sixth entry in the Hannah Swenson movie series, following on from A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery, A Plum Pudding Mystery, A Peach Cobbler Mystery, and Just Desserts. The lead actors are happy to be back, and Sweeney in particular is happy to be baking again!
“I love this character so much; I enjoy those baking scenes – I’m so excited to be back.”
No word just yet on whether Sweet Revenge is the first entry in a new run of Hannah Swensen movies, but the name change suggests it is highly likely that more movies are on the way.
