Blake Shelton is teaming up with the Hallmark Channel again this holiday season, announcing a made-for-TV movie titled Time for You to Come Home for Christmas.

Shelton is not expected to act in the film but is signed on to produce the project, which is sequel to his 2018 movie Time for Me to Come Home for Christmas. Both films are based on the song “Time for Me to Come Home,” which appears on Shelton’s 2012 album, Cheers, It’s Christmas. The hit country hit maker wrote the song with his mother, Dorothy Shackleford, and along with the Christmas movies it has also led to a book titled Time for Me to Come Home in 2013.

According to reporting by Entertainment Tonight, Time for You to Come Home for Christmas will star Lucas Bryant (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD) and Alison Sweeney (Days of Our Lives), who will play a military veteran and young widow heading back to their Virginia hometown for Christmas. Over the course of the holiday and despite mysterious factors which seem likely to keep them apart, a wholesome love story will begin to snowball.

Time for You to Come Home for Christmas is part of Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ “Miracles of Christmas,” and will premiere December 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
