This morning, Crown Media Family Networks announced that the POstables of Signed, Sealed, Delivered will be back, but not for a standard 12-episode series. Instead, the crew are returning in a series of two-hour films, which will move over to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, the rebranded Hallmark Movie Channel.

The whole cast will return, which is awesome for them, because they have the flexibility to pick up other projects, and for fans, because the core four stay intact. It’s also a good fit for the new network, since each episode solved the mystery of an undelivered letter.

Here’s the official word from the network:

“We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Martha Williamson and to bring her brand of rich and poignant stories to viewers on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries,” said Michelle Vicary, executive vice president, programming and network publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “At their core, the narratives on Signed, Sealed, Delivered revolve around mystery and suspense, with compelling characters and dramatic storylines that will be enhanced by an extended format.”

“When Bill Abbott and Michelle Vicary asked if I can evolve the Signed, Sealed, Delivered franchise into a series of movies, I was honored to continue the Hallmark tradition of quality family movies,” said series Creator and Executive Producer Martha Williamson. “At the heart of Signed, Sealed, Delivered is Oliver, a modern-day gentleman with old world values played brilliantly by Eric Mabius,” she added. “He and his wonderful team of postal detectives will continue to surprise us and sometimes make us laugh as they work to solve mysteries behind letters, even mysteries of life.”

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will introduce viewers to the show by airing a marathon of season one this Saturday, beginning at Noon/11 am c. Signed, Sealed, Delivered For Christmas will be the first movie in the franchise, premiering November 23rd at 9/8c, with three more planned for 2015.

    While I am relieved after searching for information on this show, when I noticed that it was missing from the Hallmark lineup, I was relieved and surprised, but happy to find that I will be seeing more of the Signed, Sealed, and delivered family, I was also very sad to hear that I won’t be able to enjoy these characters and their lives on a weekly basis as before. Looking forwards to the movies as that is my only option, but missing the weekly format……Bitter sweet.

  2. Such a inspirational show.I loved watching ot every week.It was heartwarming and loved the regular characters.it made me smile. Looking forward to the movies but sad that weekly show will not be.Why?

    • I think they went to that format because it gave them a longer 2-hour arc to tell each story, and the stories were a better fit for the new Hallmark Movies & Mysteries mandate.

  3. Can you tell me when it starts back in the UK. Loved it
