Fans anticipating the Season 10 premiere of the beloved Hallmark series When Calls the Heart have been left hanging after a network executive said the show will air sometime in the middle of 2023.
Lisa Hamilton-Daly, Hallmark Media’s executive vice president of programming, didn’t give a specific date for the premiere. But fans have become accustomed to seeing the first episodes in February. Last year, Hallmark saw pushback when the show didn’t premiere until March 6.
Season 10 of When Calls the Heart
Filming began in July on the new season and production is expected to wrap up in November. The show is filmed on MacInnes Farms in Langley, British Columbia, which is located near Vancouver in western Canada. (The farm has a great Facebook page, which can be found here.)
The stars of the show have been posting photos and videos from the set.
Erin Krakow (who plays Elizabeth Thornton on the series) shared a beautiful video of the set on her Instagram page with the message, “Season 10. So grateful for this show and this place. Hoping for 100 more eps.”
Ava Cooper, who plays Opal Weise, shared a photo of one of the horses from the show.
“Back on set! The horses are always so sweet!!” she wrote in the caption.
Andrea Brooks (Dr. Faith Carter) posted a photo on Instagram with the caption, “Looking *forward* to all the stories we get to tell in SEASON 🔟 of @wcth_tv!
