According to production reports and IMDb listings, Jodie Sweetin appears to be starring in a Christmas movie which is a sequel to a film Candace Cameron Bure directed for Hallmark. And Bure’s male lead also stars in the new film. This has left fans wondering if Sweetin will replace Bure in the Christmas Under Wraps sequel or if she is simply part of a sequel set in the same universe. Here’s everything we know so far.

Jodie Sweetin to Star in Two Christmas Movies in 2022 One of them is “Remembering Christmas” alongside Tim Rozon. On March 9th she shared that she was busy shooting the movie and it was really cold out in Montreal.

However, Sweetin is also starring in another movie that appears to be a sequel to a Christmas movie that originally starred Candace Cameron Bure.

The Twitter account SleepyKittyPaw, known for sharing behind-the-scenes details of Hallmark movies, posted on Twitter in April: “Looks like Jodie Sweetin has TWO Christmas movies lined up for 2022. In addition to recently filmed REMEMBERING CHRISTMAS, starring Tim Rozon, Sweetin also stars in A COZY CHRISTMAS INN, the sequel to 2014’s CHRISTMAS UNDER WRAPS, Hallmark’s highest-rated film of all time.”

The Daily Mail also confirmed that Sweetin would star in the movie Cozy Christmas Inn, but didn’t mention that it would be a sequel to Bure’s film.

However, IMDb’s listing is for the alternative title “Christmas Under Wraps 2: Holiday Inn Love”.

SleepyKittyPaw written down that the film was shot in Utah in December and that the same writer who wrote Christmas Under Wraps also wrote Cozy Christmas Inn.

According to IMDb, Sweetin will not be recast as Bure’s character. Sweetin plays a character named Erika McNicoll. In the original film, Bure portrayed a character named Dr. Lauren Brunell, reported IMDb.

David O’Donnell played the role of Andy Holliday, Brunell’s love interest. According to IMDb, he returns to the Sweetin sequel in the same role. Here’s a trailer for the original film starring Bure:

Back in mid-December, O’Donnell shared a video from Utah, likely while he was shooting the film. He wrote: “Couldn’t be more snowy and beautiful. I love my time in Utah – I look forward to @thehurricane coming over here so we can shred the POWs!”

He also spoke in another video about filming in Utah on December 14.

He wrote: “Incredibly beautiful in Huntsville, Utah. I am blessed to be able to film here and meet friends old and new. So calm and peaceful and the world is preparing for a little break – the best time of the year. Thank you #huntsville and thank you @compassroselodge for your hospitality and beauty. You guys are amazing and can’t wait to come back. #themostwonderfultimeoftheyear #christmas #winterwonderland”

Ironically, while writing about his stay in Utah on December 9, one person replied: “How come you’re never in Hallmark Movies anymore? I’m rewatching Christmas Under Wraps and you’re one of my favorites!❤️😍👏”

He wrote back: “Patience my friend 😘.”

According to IMDb, JE Logan will direct the new movie, which will be written by Jennifer Notas Shapiro. It also stars Vivica A. Fox, Brian Doyle-Murray, Peter Jacobson, Jennifer Aspen, Kim Shaw, Page Petrucka and more. Anita Rice also reprises her role as Faith Holliday. However, Bure is not listed.

SleepyKittyPaw noted that many of the original stars of “Christmas Under Wraps” are returning for the sequel, with the exception of Bure.

SleepyKittyPaw added that there could be a number of reasons why Bure isn’t in the film.

The SleepyKittyPaw Twitter account also stressed that there is no guarantee the film will even air on Hallmark. And Crown Media has not made any announcement about this film at the time of writing this article.

they write, “Given the time since CHRISTMAS UNDER WRAPS, the sequel isn’t 100% guaranteed for Hallmark, but given the popularity of the original, I’d say it probably is. The same manufacturing company, Hybrid, made both.”

They added: “The original title of A COZY CHRISTMAS INN was CHRISTMAS UNDER WRAPS 2: HOLIDAY INN LOVE so they might downplay the sequel element. Anything is possible in terms of destination given the time since the original.”

“Christmas Under Wraps” premiered in 2014 and starred Bure as Dr. Lauren Burnell and O’Donnell as Andy Holliday.
