Great American Country Media (GAC) made an announcement that has fans cheering. Actress Lori Loughlin will be joining the network by starring in their upcoming movie “Fall into Winter”, which is set to premiere in January 2023, according to Good Housekeeping.
“Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years,” President and CEO of GAC, Bill Abbott, stated in a press release. “We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”
Loughlin returns to acting after she and husband Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters Olivia Jade, 22, and Bella, 24, into the University of Southern California in 2019, according to Us Magazine.
It didn’t take long for Loughlin’s fans to take to social media to share their excitement and congratulate her.
“Finally … welcome back Lori,” one fan wrote on Instagram. “I am so happy for Lori Loughlin,” another fan commented. “I can’t wait to see this movie and her. Bravo GAC for casting such a wonderful actress!”
Fans weren’t the only ones who took to social media to share their excitement. Actress and former co-star Candace Cameron Bure shared “my Great American Family,” on Instagram, while sharing a photo of herself, along with Loughlin and others.
According to People, “Fall into Winter” will have Loughlin play the role of Keely, who, according to GAC’s description, “is aghast when her brother sells his half of their family-owned, upscale candy shop to his best friend from high school (and her nemesis, Brooks) forcing a sudden urgency to find connection and common ground. Keely has been hurt before; change is her new nemesis. Brooks’ past is a mirror of Keely’s. He, too, has a fortress around his heart. Fate brings the pair together. Might it also offer new beginnings?”
Fans can look forward to watching “Fall into Winter” next month on GAC.
