The Hallmark Series That Stars Actors From Riverdale And Shameless

The Hallmark Channel has been a staple for many TV fans since it launched in the early 2000s. Hallmark has become must-watch TV, with many of your favorites like Meghan Markle and Tori Spelling taking on roles with the network. Fans can't get enough of their women-centered programming, with the company's executive vice president of programming and network publicity stating, "We are one of the leaders in television dedicated to empowering women and providing females the opportunity to thrive both on and off screen," via Paste.

While fans passionately follow Hallmark for its strong female leads and, of course, the coveted holiday season films, the network has also become known for its various TV series. Their original programming includes "Cedar Cove" and the latest hit, "The Way Home."

If you're only tuning into Hallmark's movies, you might be missing out on the series "Ride," which features stars from "Riverdale" and "Shameless."

The show is centered around a multi-generational family

The Hallmark Channel has branched out from creating popular TV movies and has added scripted series to its arsenal of content. Some of the most popular shows include "Chesapeake Shores," "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," and "When Hope Calls." Now, the network has debuted a series called "Ride," and some of the lead actors may look familiar.

The plot of the show is centered around the McMurray family and the dynamics between the multiple generations, who are working and living on a beloved ranch that has long been in their lineage. Sadly, the family has lost an integral member, and now, they are all going on a journey to find themselves, work together, and keep the ranch moving. Of course, there are many twists and turns here, plus a plethora of secrets that become uncovered, all of which are trying to pull the family apart. But you'll likely recall where you have seen the actors in this TV show before.
