Candace Cameron Bure is still the Queen of Christmas, just not at Hallmark anymore. On April 19, news broke that the Fuller House actress had signed a deal with Great American Country Media (GAC), effectively ending her time at Hallmark Channel.
Apart from starring in TV shows and movies for the network’s various channels, including GAC Family and GAC Living, she will develop and produce while“overseeing and curating programming.” What’s more, Candace will “create year-round seasonal content” and bring her holiday experience to the annual Great American Christmas franchise.
In case GAC doesn’t ring a bell, the network is run by Bill Abbott, the former CEO of Crown Media Family Networks (a.k.a. the parent company behind Hallmark Channel). Candace is among a handful of Hallmark stars who’ve made the transition over to GAC in the past several months. She joins Jen Lilley, Danica McKellar, Trevor Donovan and Jessica Lowndes. Though it may be a new beginning for the Queen of Christmas, it hasn’t been easy news for Hallmark fans to digest.
Shortly after, Candace confirmed that she was switching channels in an Instagram post. “Excited to join the @gactv and @gacliving family!” she captioned screenshots of Deadline’s article.
