Airing on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT, "Chesapeake Shores" was one of Hallmark Channel's most-watched original series and joins the network's other primetime scripted shows as a top five-rated series on Sunday nights.

"We look forward to further exploring the show's heartfelt and compelling storylines as characters navigate the complexities of life and love," Vicary concluded.

Based on the novels of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods, the series stars Jesse Metcalfe ("Dallas"), Meghan Ory ("Once Upon a Time"), Golden Globe(R) nominee Treat Williams ("Everwood," Hair), Academy Award(R) nominee Diane Ladd (Wild at Heart), Barbara Niven ("Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove"), Laci J. Mailey ("Falling Skies"), Emilie Ullerup ("Sanctuary"), Brendan Penny ("Motive") and Andrew Francis ("Final Destination 3"). The multi-generational family drama "Chesapeake Shores" follows Abby O'Brien (Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to two daughters, as she adjusts to life back in her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. Abby now balances a budding relationship with her former high school sweetheart, Trace (Metcalfe), working for a firm that does business with her uncompromising father Mick (Williams) and raising her children. Returning to her hometown means engaging in the lives of her siblings: Jess (Mailey) a free-spirit trying to succeed as a bed and breakfast owner; Bree (Ullerup), a playwright who buys a bookstore in Chesapeake Shores after moving back home from Chicago; Kevin (Penny), a soldier adjusting to civilian life and new romance; and Connor (Francis), a new lawyer establishing his professional career. Having returned to Chesapeake Shores shortly after Abby, the O'Brien's once-estranged mother Megan (Niven) strives to reestablish relationships with Abby and her siblings, though the O'Brien clan primarily looks to its wise grandmother Nell (Ladd) for guidance. "Chesapeake Shores" is a Daniel L. Paulson Production. Dan Paulson, Michael Berns, Nancey Silvers and Sherryl Woods are executive producers. Matt Drake serves as producer.
