Fans of Hallmark’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” movies have been waiting for another installment of the series for years. Eric Mabius, who plays Oliver in the films, recently let fans know via Twitter that they may finally get their wish.
“Psst. Lil’ bird might have mentioned that we may be a ‘tentative’ go for SSD 11 at the very end of July. With a hopeful goal of airing in October… Just sayin’,” Mabius wrote.
It’s been three years since “Signed, Sealed, Delivered: To the Altar” premiered. Here’s what the Postables gang has been up to since then.What Has the SSD Cast Been Up To? View this post on Instagram

The cast of the “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” films have stayed busy with other projects since the last movie premiered in 2018. Mabius starred in the Hallmark movie “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” in 2019. He was also an executive producer on the film. He and his wife Ivy Sherman have two sons, Maxfield and Rylan.
Kristin Booth, who plays Shane in the SSD movies, recently played Cheryl on season 5 of the Netflix series “Workin’ Moms.” She has not appeared in a Hallmark project since the last SSD film. In April, she shared an Instagram photo of her posing with a USPS mail dropbox.
“POstables I believe it’s a sign, even while shooting another project the USPS has a way of finding me,” she captioned the photo. In 2018, Booth was one of four actresses to speak out against director Albert Schultz’s sexual harassment.
Booth told CBC of her experience with Schultz, “I was being groomed to think that this was all normal, that this was all what I had to do to work in the theatre, to be an ingénue in the theatre meant you were sexualized continually.”
Crystal Lowe, who plays Rita, is likely looking forward to filming the next SSD film, seeing as she misses her co-star Booth immensely. In March, she posted an Instagram photo with the actress, captioning it “words cannot express how much I miss @kristinbooth I just want to make stupid videos and drink wine with her soooooooo bad!”
Lowe was in Hallmark‘s “Christmas at Dollywood” in 2019. She and Booth were also both in the Lifetime movie “The Wrong Wedding Planner” in 2020.
Lowe’s onscreen husband Geoff Gustafson has been doing voice-acting work lately. He recently voice acted in “The Clockwork Girl” with fellow Hallmark actor Alexa PenaVega. In 2019, he acted in Hallmark’s “Write Before Christmas.”A New ‘Aurora Teagarden’ Mystery Premieres This Week View this post on Instagram

Although there’s still a while to wait for the next SSD film, there’s another Hallmark film (and another Hallmark wedding!) coming soon. “Aurora Tegarden Mysteries: Till Death Do Us Part” premieres on June 13 at 8 pm ET.
In the film, Aurora and Nick are finally ready to exchange wedding vows, but will a body discovered just days before the ceremony throw a wrench in their plans? Things get even more complicated when it’s revealed that Aurora’s father was with the victim the night of the murder.
Candace Cameron Bure recently shared a clip from the movie on Instagram, writing “Your dad being a person of interest in the murder case you are trying to solve right before your wedding….would this go in the category of really bad or just bad?”

- David Frankel, the film's director, said Rachel McAdams was "determined" not to take the role.
- Other actors, including Natalie Portman and Kate Hudson, were also considered for the role.
- Anne Hathaway had to campaign to convince studio executives she was right for the film.

Rachel McAdams was offered the role of Andy Sachs in "The Devil Wears Prada" three times before it went to Anne Hathaway, the movie's director revealed in a new interview.
The 2006 fashion comedy, which is set within a fictional magazine modeled on Vogue, turns 15 this year, and all of the film's key cast members, including Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, and director David Frankel spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the making of the cult classic.
According to Frankel, Fox 2000, the studio that produced the film, wanted an established actor for the role of Andy Sachs. The studio wasn't keen on Hathaway, who at the time was known for roles in teen-oriented films such as "The Princess Diaries" and "Ella Enchanted." The first choice for the role was Rachel McAdams who had just come off the success of "Mean Girls" and "The Notebook."
"We started negotiating with Annie (Anne Hathaway) to make a deal, and that didn't go well with the studio ... We offered it to Rachel McAdams three times," Frankel said. "The studio was determined to have her, and she was determined not to do it."
Other actors, including Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Kirsten Dunst, and Scarlett Johansson were also considered for the role before Hathaway who had to campaign to convince the studio executives that she was the right choice.
"It spoke to me. It made me feel. It was about a subject that I take very seriously, but in such a wonderfully joyful and lighthearted way," Hathaway said of the film's script.Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada." Disney
Former Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler said that Hathaway's extensive campaigning efforts included entering Fox executive Carla Hacken's office and writing the words "Hire Me" in her zen garden.
"Annie never gave up. She never stopped campaigning,' Gabler said.
However, the studio did not begin to seriously consider Hathaway for the role until Meryl Streep, who stars as the ruthless magazine editor Miranda Priestly, put in a good word.
"Meryl was eager to make the movie, and she said 'let me meet with her.' Brokeback Mountain was about to come out. Annie had a wonderful, small role in that. And Meryl watched that scene from the movie, she met with her and called up Tom Rothman at Fox and said, 'Yeah, this girl's great, and I think we'll work well together,'" Frankel said.
Hathaway said that when she was offered the role, it was "the easiest yes in the world."
"I remember the moment I found out I got the part, I just ran screaming through my apartment. I had a bunch of friends over at the time, I just jumped up in the living room and screamed, 'I'm going to be in 'The Devil Wears Prada!''"Sign up for notifications from Insider!
