Dolly Parton Is Releasing a Brand-New Christmas Musical This December

We're already counting down to Christmas 2020!

We know Christmas was just a few months ago. But news about a Dolly Parton Christmas musical has us ready to deck the halls right now!

If you’ve already watched all eight episodes of Dolly Parton’s latest Netflix project, Heartstrings, which uses her songs like “Jolene” and “Sugar Hill” as a theme for each episode, then her latest musical is for you.

What’s the Musical About?

The show is called Christmas on the Square. Details are scarce but we do know that the musical is being produced by Netflix and is directed by Debbie Allen. It also features 12 all-new, original songs, and we’re ready to sing along right now.

According to Country Living, on a recent episode of the podcast “My Year With Dolly,” actor Mary Lane Haskell revealed some details. Christmas on the Square has been described as a mix of It’s a Wonderful Life and Christmas Carol, and of course, Dolly plays an angel.

The plot is about an heiress who inherited a town and is trying to sell it before Christmas. Why? Who’s the Scrooge to Dolly’s angel? You’re just going to have to wait and watch to fill in the plot gaps.

When Will This Be on Netflix?

The film is listed as in post-production on IMDb, and we know it will have to be released in time for Christmas. We’re hoping that it will appear on Netflix in November or early December.

For those who want to live in the present, we also have the list of Hallmark’s Spring Fever movies you need to watch right now. Hop to it!
