Hallmark's Primetime Series CHESAPEAKE SHORES Returns This August
Hallmark Channel's hit primetime series 'CHESAPEAKE SHORES' returns for Season Two Sunday, August 6 (9pm ET/PT, 8C) and runs through October 2017 with new episodes every Sunday night. Season one of "Chesapeake Shores" was the most-watched and most-successful series in Hallmark Channel's history. Based on the novels of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods, the series stars Jesse Metcalfe ("Dallas"), Meghan Ory ("Once Upon A Time"), Golden Globe(R) nominee Treat Williams ("Everwood," "Hair"), Academy Award(R) nominee Diane Ladd ("Wild At Heart"), Barbara Niven ("Cedar Cove"), Laci Mailey ("Falling Skies"), Emilie Ullerup ("Sanctuary"), Brendan Penny ("Motive") and Andrew Francis ("Final Destination 3"). Gregory Harrison ("One Tree Hill"), Victor Webster and Jerry Trimble guest star in season two.Season two of the multi-generational family drama "Chesapeake Shores" follows Abby O'Brien (Meghan Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to twin daughters, as she adjusts to life back in her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. Abby now balances a budding relationship with her former high school sweetheart, Trace (Jesse Metcalfe), working for a firm that does business with her UNCOMPROMISING father Mick (Treat Williams) and raising two young daughters. Returning to her hometown means engaging in the lives of her siblings: Jess (Laci J. Mailey) a free-spirit trying to succeed as a bed and breakfast owner; Bree (Emilie Ullerup), a playwright who buys a bookstore in Chesapeake Shores after moving back home from Chicago; Kevin (Brendan Penny), a soldier adjusting to civilian life and new romance; and Connor (Andrew Francis), a new lawyer establishing his professional career.
Having returned to Chesapeake Shores shortly after Abby, the O'Brien's once-estranged mother Megan (Barbara Niven) strives to reestablish relationships with Abby and her siblings, though the O'Brien clan primarily looks to its wise grandmother Nell (Diane Ladd) for guidance as they navigate life, love, career and romance.Image courtesy of Hallmark Channel
