Attention, Jodie Sweetin fans: We know it's only May, but we've got some exciting Christmas news on the horizon.

The Full / Fuller House actor will star in her third Hallmark holiday movie, per Entertainment Tonight. Sweetin previously played the lead in Hallmark's 2017 film Finding Santa and 2018's Entertaining Christmas. The upcoming film is tentatively called Merry & Bright.

According to ET, the plot revolves around Cate (played by Sweetin) who is CEO of the Merry & Bright Candy Cane Company. During the craziness of the holidays, Cate crosses paths with Gabe (played by Andrew Walker). "She assumes Gabe is the suitor her well-meaning mother is trying to set her up with when in reality, he works for Empire Corporate Recovery, which has been hired to take a closer look at Merry & Bright's operation and find ways to make the company more profitable," writes Philiana Ng in ET's report of the plot synopsis. "As Cate and Gabe begin to work together, they find ways to elevate the business and find that they have more in common than savvy business sense."
