Lifetime has announced two new movies for its holiday programming, and we cannot be more excited!

A Christmas Dance Reunion reunites High School Musical alums Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman, and Blending Christmas will star Haylie Duff and Aaron O’Connell, along with Beth Broderick, Telma Hopkins, Greg Evigan and former The Brady Bunch actors Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland, Susan Olsen, Jennifer Elise Cox and Robbie Rist.

Lifetime offers the following description for A Christmas Dance Reunion:

In A Christmas Dance Reunion, successful attorney Lucy Mortimer (Coleman), along with her mother Virginia (Kim Roberts) return to the Winterleigh Resort to help celebrate the hotel’s final Christmas season before the resort closes its doors permanently. Once there, Lucy is reunited with the owner’s nephew and her childhood Christmas Dance partner, Barrett Brewster (Bleu). Though the resort has fallen on hard times and has stopped most holiday events, Lucy leads the charge in recreating the beloved Christmas traditions, including the popular Christmas Dance, to bring together new families and new hope to the resort. Now, Lucy must decide if she’s willing to take a risk on love and partner up once more with Barrett for what could be the last Christmas Dance.

The plot for Blending Christmas is described as follows:

“In Blending Christmas, the holiday season is in full swing when Emma (Haylie Duff) learns that the resort where she used to spend Christmases with her family is being redeveloped. Her boyfriend Liam (O’Connell), hatches a plan to bring her to the resort one last time to propose! He secretly invites both their families to join them and Emma is delighted when she arrives to find the whole family bunch there. Of course, no holiday gathering is complete without drama, and soon the families are bickering over every detail. The added stress from trying to blend the two families eventually takes a toll on Emma and Liam, who start questioning their own relationship. Now just days before Christmas, the two families realize that they’re going to have to work together in order to reunite Emma and Liam.”

A Christmas Dance Reunion and Blending Christmas join a 2021 It’s a Wonderful Lifetime holiday slate that includes new movies from Reba McEntire, Kelly Rowland, Mario Lopez, Jana Kramer, and more to come this winter.
