Hallmark Channel's foray into new original series continues next month.

Ride follows the intertwined lives of a rodeo family dynasty.

Andie MacDowell (Maid, Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove), Chyler Leigh (Supergirl, Grey's Anatomy), Evan Williams (Blonde, Versailles), and Sadie Laflamme-Snow (The Apprentice) star in The Way Home, which premiered Sunday, January 15, and has become a runaway hit for the cable network.

Over its first three episodes, The Way Home grew from its premiere to become cable's #1 program on Sundays.

The series tells the story of the Landry women, who have been estranged for more than 20 years after the unexplained disappearance of the youngest in the family and the untimely death of the patriarch.

Now under the same roof again, they must find their way back to each other by discovering truths about their past.

Nancy Travis (Last Man Standing, The Kominsky Method), Tiera Skovbye (Riverdale, Nurses), Beau Mirchoff (Good Trouble, Hidden Gems), Sara Garcia (The Flash, Reign), Jake Foy (Designated Survivor, A Little Daytime Drama), and Tyler Jacob Moore (Barry, Shameless) star in Ride. 

The series tells the story of a multigenerational family ensemble and follows the lives of the McMurrays, part of a rodeo dynasty going back a generation, as they struggle to keep their beloved ranch afloat.

"After a tragic loss, each character embarks on an empowering journey of transformation and self-discovery while also uncovering a twisted web of secrets, threatening to tear the family and their small Colorado town apart at the seams," Hallmark teases.

A second season of The Way Home has yet to be announced, but given that Hallmark is using it to get viewers into Ride, the show must be performing very well.
