A California Christmas Sequel: Will it Happen?

Are you looking for a holiday movie that doesn’t follow the many conventional tropes of the genres of comedy and drama? Then you should check out ‘A California Christmas,’ because it is truly the characters that bring the narrative to life. The story is centered around a business executive who must convince a stubborn farmer to sell her property to him. Here’s what we know about the possibility of a sequel.

A California Christmas Sequel Release Date 

‘A California Christmas’ released on December 14, 2020, on the streaming platform Netflix. In most romcoms, happy endings are a given, and the same is the case with this film. Consequently, the prospects of a sequel do seem slim.  Nonetheless, people everywhere have loved the script and the protagonists’ stories. The filmmakers may take note of this and decide to follow up on Joseph Van Aston and Callie Bernet. In the event of a sequel, we can expect to see ‘A California Christmas 2’ release sometime in 2021 or later.

A California Christmas Sequel Cast: Who can be in it?

The beauty of ‘A California Christmas’ lies in the fact that the story is mostly character-driven. In fact, real-life married couple Josh and Lauren Swickard star as Joseph and Callie respectively. Amanda Detmer is the farmer’s mother, Wendy, whereas Natalia Mann is the younger sister, Hannah. Julie Lancaster plays Joseph’s mother, Amy Van Aston. 

In the movie, Joseph pretends to be a farmhand named Manny. But it is David Del Rio who plays the actual character. Ali Afshar is the male protagonist’s ever-so-loyal valet, Leo. Gunnar Anderson is seen as Connor, who also tries to woo Callie. If a sequel is greenlit, then we expect all of them to reprise their roles. 

A California Christmas Sequel Plot: What can it be About?

‘A California Christmas’ is the story of a wealthy philanderer, Joseph, and a hardworking farmer, Callie. Van Aston Enterprises wants to buy her property in order to set up their own warehouse. However, the land is invaluable for her and no amount of money or power in the world can convince her to give it up. When Mrs. Van Aston fails to strike a deal, she sends in her son, Joseph, as a last resort.

But when Joseph reaches the ranch, he is mistaken for Manny, the new farmhand employed by Callie. The business executive sticks with this persona so that he can learn more about the farmer and eventually convince her to sell her property. However, as the movie progresses, the two start developing feelings for each other. But his secret could put their entire relationship in peril. 

Although we don’t want to give you any spoilers, in the sequel of ‘A California Christmas,’ we can expect to learn more about how Joseph and Callie run the new business venture. Furthermore, it would be interesting to see how farm life suits Joseph. We definitely want to see Leo and Manny back on our screen! It is likely that they will keep experimenting with more wines while making us all laugh. However, only time can tell which direction the filmmakers head in.
