The network streaming service “Hallmark Movies Now” will debut an original holiday movie for the first time.

Candace Cameron Bure, aka the queen of hallmark shared with U.S. Weekly this year, she’ll be starring in a movie with her fuller house co-star John Brotherton, who played Matt Harmon, DJ’s love interest during the show’s run. This brings the two back on our screens since the show went off the air for the first time.
