Chris McNally when calls the heart grease

Hallmark’s “When Calls The Heart” Star Chris McNally is ready to hang up his Lucas Bouchard until this Summer as he’s preparing to debut a brand new project!

Chris McNally is readying a recurring role on Paramount+’s upcoming Grease prequel Rise of the Pink Ladies which is set to debut April 6th. The role is a different one. He’s playing a very bad guy.

Rise of the Pink Ladies takes place in 1954, four years before the original Grease, before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school.

The show follows four outcasts who dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a panic that will change Rydell High forever.

McNally will play Mr. Daniels, a young teacher well-liked by many. However, things might not be the way they seem with this teacher. He is a bad guy who threw a 16-year-old student under the bus for coming onto her, and tries to gaslight her into thinking he didn’t.

The upcoming musical series will premiere on Thursday, April 6, exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Canada.

The series will premiere the following day in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and South Korea. Following the premiere, new episodes of the 10-episode-long season will be available to stream weekly on Thursdays for subscribers in the U.S. and Canada, and on Fridays for subscribers in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and South Korea.
