Candace Cameron Bure reveals why she left Hallmark Channel

Candace Cameron Bure brings Christ back for Christmas.

The “Full House” star revealed her fondness for the values ​​of the Great American Family network and spoke to the Hallmark Channel about joining the Tennessee-based company years later.

“My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning and purpose and depth,” Bure explained. “I knew the people behind Great American Family were Christians who loved the Lord and wanted to promote faith programs and good family entertainment.”

She believes that Hallmark, for which she has acted in dozens of films, “is fundamentally a completely different network than it was when I was there because I changed leadership.”

Great American Family CEO Bill Abbott previously ran Hallmark’s parent company, Crown Media, before leaving in 2020.

Bure, who portrayed DJ Tanner on the popular sitcom, told Variety in September, “It didn’t work out with Hallmark” and “it just so happened that my contract expired when Great American Family was starting.”

The faith-promoting company plays holiday specials as part of its religious programming. Bure says there will be no same-sex couples starring.

“I think Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at its core,” she said.

Abbott has been less transparent with the network’s future decisions.

“It’s certainly 2022, so we’re aware of the trends,” he explained. “There’s no whiteboard that says ‘yes, that’ or ‘no, we’re never going to get here’.” Candace Cameron Bure reveals why she left Hallmark Channel
