Hallmark Channel announced today that Chesapeake Shores has been picked up for a fifth season. The good news comes nearly 10 months after Season 4 concluded. There were unofficial reports of a renewal earlier in the year, but now the cable network has confirmed that the show will indeed be back.

There will be a bit of a wait for Season 5 though, as it isn't scheduled to air until the summer of 2021. Production was originally slated to kick off months ago, but the shutdown related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic forced the show to take a year off.

Based on the novels by Sherryl Woods, Chesapeake Shores follows a career woman and single mother of two who takes a trip from New York City to the quaint hometown where she grew up. After realizing the toll her career has taken on her life, she considers staying in Chesapeake Shores permanently.
