Hallmark Mysteries series have a different approach to traditional TV but it seems that doesn’t mean they can escape cancellation.

Hailey Dean mysteries was one of my favorites. I hate to see that it was cancelled. I hope that Hallmark has some decent movies to take the place of Hailey Dean and Picture Perfect mysteries!!!
Very sad to hear that Hailey Dean mysteries has been canceled. It was one of my absolute favorites!
It was my favourite series to but currently I have to recommend Mystery 101 to replace it. Check it out it is really good.
I think Hallmark cancelling Hailey Dean is a big mistake. Hopefully GAC Family will pick it up
I am not sure it would be that easy to switch the story over. I am not sure about the GAC and their values to be honest.
I agree with you about GAC and their values.
Big mistake Hallmark canceling Hailey Dean Mysteries. They were on top along with Aurora Teagarden, Chronicle Mysteries and Hannah Swenson.
Never saw Murder She Baked. However I think Chronicle Mysteries is amazing though and I really liked Hailey and Fincher together on Hailey Dean.
Im also disappointed. Im just watching reruns of Mystery Woman with Kellie Martin, and it got me thinking when will they air new episodes of Hailey Dean. I will the banter between Fincher and Hailey Dean.
Please bring back Harley Dean series. Well done and fans need continuation not cancellations
I can’t believe they canceled Hailey Dean! I hope Hallmark was smart enough to sign Kellie Martin in a new mystery series. I started watching her in Mystery Women and have been watching her every since. I hope Hallmark knows what they’re doing. I just got their streaming channel only to find out some of my favorite mystery series are being canceled. Very disappointing!! My best to Kellie and the rest of the cast. You will most certainly be missed.
I really want to see the Mystery Woman series
Kellie wish you the best,God will open a door and place you where you need to be ,how about writing and directing your own like Danika and Jessica on GAC, you are so talented
I just found Hailey Dean, then learned it is cancelled. How disappointing!
I have really enjoyed Aurora Teagarden and Hailey Dean mysteries. I understand why Aurora Teagarden was dropped but Kelly Martin is still a great fit for Hallmark. Please reconsider.
I agree with you but it seems like they are going for a new generation of leads for their Mysteries. Doesn’t mean that we can’t see more Kellie if she is open to it.
