Starring in ABC’s 2017 comedy series The Mayor, Lea Michele returned to the television network in December 2019 with her new holiday movie Same Time, Next Christmas in December 2019.

After being separated by distance and years, the two reunite at the same Hawaiian resort years later, and the old chemistry between them flares up anew—but circumstances conspire to keep them apart.

Lea Michele’s third studio album, Christmas in the City, was released just two months earlier through Sony Music Entertainment.

The movie was filmed throughout the Hawaiian island of Oahu, from the North Shore to Waikiki Beach. The hotel featured in the film is Turtle Bay Resort, a 4-star beach resort on Oahu’s North Shore.
