When Calls the Heart has been renewed
Hallmark Channel announced the news on Friday.
“When Calls the Heart continues to push the limits as to what we can achieve with this show,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, executive vice president of programming of Crown Media Family Networks. “There are many more stories still to be told about the lives of the beloved characters in this series and we cannot wait for everyone at home to tune in to see what unfolds.”
Hallmark recently announced it will produce two new television series, The Way Home and Ride, for primetime. Both of the shows will begin production this summer and will air in 2023.
Hallmark canceled two long-running shows — Good Witch and the lifestyle series Home and Family — in the summer of 2021. Another of the network’s shows, Chesapeake Shores, is in production for its sixth and final season.
About the show
When Calls the Heart premiered on Hallmark Channel in 2014. Based on the bestselling series by Canadian author Janette Oke, the show follows a privileged young woman (played by Krakow) who moves to a small coal-mining town to teach school. Though she struggles at first to adapt to her new way of living, she grows to love her students and the people in the small town. She also falls in love and marries the local constable.
Fans have been desperate to find out about Season 10 since the Season 9 finale aired in May. In an interview, the show’s co-creator said that the series would continue even if Hallmark didn’t produce it.
“Whether or not the Hallmark Channel wants to keep us around forever doesn’t matter,” said Brian Bird. “There will be somebody else who wants it because it is so unique. And we will keep making the show as long as those Hearties want to show up and watch the show.”
