"We are so thrilled to work with Debbie Macomber and have the opportunity to bring to life her beloved book series, which was the perfect fit for Hallmark Channel. The show's significant impact and the fact that audiences have responded positively to the show has warranted a second season renewal. We launched a new era at Hallmark Channel with 'Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove' and we look forward to the show's continued growth and success."

Andie MacDowell, Dylan Neal, Teryl Rothery, Bruce Boxleitner and Barbara Niven will all return to the second season of "Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove." The series is filmed in Vancouver and will begin production in 2014. The second season will also debut in 2014.

The series immerses its audiences into the majestic and inimitable world of Cedar Cove, a small town with a big heart. In "Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove," the small but picturesque lake town of Cedar Cove is home to romance, relationships and drama. At the center of it all is Judge Olivia Lockhart, played by Andie MacDowell, whose Cedar Cove Municipal Court is where the town's shocking surprises and hidden secrets are unveiled. Dylan Neal plays the handsome Jack Griffith, the new editor of the Cedar Cove Chronicle, who uncovers and reveals the truth on what goes on behind the closed courtroom doors, but also has grown to be a love interest for Judge Lockhart.
