Dolly Parton Holiday Sequel for “Coat of Many Colors” Comes to Life

Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors - Season 1Dolly Parton announced that there will be a sequel to her NBC-TV movie Coat of Many Colors.

And we couldn’t be happier.

The sequel, Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, is set for release in 2016. Due to the popularity of the original TV movie, based on the true story that inspired Dolly’s actual hit single “Coat of Many Colors,” NBC has decided to try to strike gold twice. According to Dolly’s website, 15.9 million viewers watched the original, making it the most-watched film on broadcast or cable in nearly seven years.

“I was so overwhelmed and touched by how many people watched Coat of Many Colors and their reaction to it,” Dolly posted. “The song ‘Coat of Many Colors,’ of course, has always been my favorite and has touched so many people through the years, especially me. It is a true story from a very special time in my childhood. I am so happy to share this story with the viewers and to say there is so much more to tell because mine truly has been a life of many colors. I hope the viewers will fall in love all over again.”

Jennifer Nettles and the original cast, Ricky Schroder, Gerald McRaney and Alyvia Alyn Lind, who played a young Dolly, are set to return. Stay tuned for air date information and further cast announcements.
