April showers bring May… TV movies? Hm, that doesn’t sound like the correct saying, but either way, it’s true! If you thought you were gonna have to wait all the way until Hallmark’s June Weddings movie season for some new favorites, then Millennial Hallmarker has some good news – YOU DON’T HAVE TO WAIT!
We’ve got a few new romance flicks to fall in love with this month, airing on both PixL and Hallmark. So, grab the last of your hot cocoa or pour a fresh glass of wine, and keep reading to find out which soon-to-be classic movies featuring fan-favorite actors you’ll be snuggling up with in May!
The second best thing to getting a revival of The O.C. WITH a Marissa resurrection? Mischa Barton in a romance movie! As if that wasn’t enough to have us buying out all the chocolate and wine at our local store, she has to go and have the incredibly handsome and talented Sean Faris as her co-star. PixL continues to keep its silent promise of lining up high-quality, highly-attractive, highly-loved stars for its movies -and that, my friends, is a May Miracle.

Two new romance movies this month from Hallmark. Both male leads are named Steve. Both female leads are personal favorites. Sara Rue has long been a favorite of mine, not just for movies, but for her TV shows – Popular, Impastor – as well. Taylor Cole has recently become one of my top rom-com stars because her versatile talent and alluring beauty allows her to fit any role and have chemistry with almost any co-star. It’s a good month.
