Macfarlane told the LA Times that they've been very kind to me, but I think I've told my story for the time being with those people. I mean, how many firefighters may I play?
Fans will no doubt be surprised when they learn that he will no longer be producing films for the network.
He's thankful for his time with Hallmark and appreciates all of the opportunities he's had in numerous interviews.
Macfarlane told the Los Angeles Times: One thing I really enjoyed about making Hallmark films is that it's fun to flirt. It's fun to experiment on camera, where relationships were at their best in those early years. I've also gained a lot of confidence from Hallmark.
Hallmark gave me jobs for a long time, not only because of my gay best friend, but because of my ability to be a leader. Im always going to be very grateful to them for that.
