‘Tis the season!

A total of 40 films will premiere on both networks in 2019, starring everyone from Kristin Chenoweth to Kathie Lee Gifford to Lacey Chabert.

“I’m so excited for fans to see my 8th Christmas movie for Hallmark Channel, Christmas in Rome, this holiday season,” Chabert, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement. “It was one of the most exciting movies I’ve made because of the opportunity to film in the gorgeous locations of Rome, Italy. I hope the movie will make the audience feel like they traveled there along with us!”
