Hearties, the news you have been waiting for is here! When Calls the Heart has been renewed for another season.
“Season 11! I’m over the moon!” wrote Erin Krakow in an Instagram post. “Thank you so much @hallmarkchannel and thank you to our #Hearties – the best fans in the universe!”
“‘When Calls the Heart’ has continued to be a standout amongst our Hallmark catalogue and we’re thrilled that we’re able to bring more stories of faith and community to the homes of millions of viewers,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, executive vice president of programming at Hallmark Media.
Production on Season 11 of the hit series will begin in July, which is also when Season 10 will premiere.
“The uplifting nature of the show paired with the love and positivity in the storytelling makes for a very heartwarming television experience and it’s only going to get bigger and better in season 11,” Hamilton-Daly said.
Good news for Hearties
Brian Bird, the show’s co-creator, weighed in on the announcement on Twitter.
#Hearties 10 seasons of any series is huge news… 11 seasons is even bigger news!” he wrote in a post.
Fans of the hot series became anxious when Hallmark Channel pushed back the premiere of Season 10 from its expected premiere date in March to July.
“I’ve shared with other #Hearties that my fear is S10 is the last season,” wrote one fan on Twitter. “#WCTH was the network’s flagship scripted episodic show. Now, it has been relegated to a mid-summer premiere. I’m not buying any other reason for the delay.”
“Hallmark cancels Chesapeake Shores which in my view was the best show on the network,” wrote another fan. “I hope your show does not get cancelled, but when you get put into the summer season, that tells me that is the end.”
When Calls the Heart
When Calls the Heart premiered on Hallmark Channel in 2014. Based on a series of books by Canadian author Janette Okes, the show followed a privileged young woman (placed by Erin Krakow) who moved to a small western mining town to teach school. The series also stars Jack Wagner, Pascale Hutton, Kavan Smith, Chris McNally, Kevin McGarry, and Kayla Wallace.
According to Hallmark Season 11 will feature 12 new episodes. Season 10, which also features 12 episodes, will premiere on July 30.
