When Calls the Heart

When Calls the Heart is Hallmark’s longest-running original show. Based on a series of books by author Janette Oke, the show follows the residents of a small Canadian mining town at the turn of the 20th century.

It stars Erin Krakow, Jack Wagner, Pascale Hutton, Kevin McGarry, Chris McNally, and Andrea Brooks. The show premiered in January 2014. It was only the second series Hallmark Channel produced.

“If there’s anything we can take away from the success of ‘When Calls the Heart,’ it’s that the stories we’re telling about these characters and their lives, resonate and matter deeply to so many of our viewers,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, executive vice president or programming at Hallmark Media. “Reaching the 100-episode milestone is cause for celebration and is a testament to the heartwarming content we’re committed to bringing our viewers each week.”

100th episode

In the 100th episode, Hope Springs Eternal, the town is still buzzing from the discovery of the hot springs. Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) and Lucas (Chris McNally) host Elizabeth’s Aunt Agatha (Karin Konoval) and her sister Julie (Charlotte Hegele) for a visit.

“Producing 100 episodes is a great achievement and a tremendous honor. It makes us so proud to do what we do and proves there is a place for this kind of storytelling on television,” said Laurie Ferneau, senior vice president of development and programming at Hallmark Media.

“Congratulations! That’s truly amazing. I’m so happy for all of you,” wrote a fan.

“This is the best show on TV and I hope it’s around for 100 episodes more!” wrote another.

Season 10 and counting

Season 10 of the series premiered on July 31. Fans had to wait more than a year for new episodes after Hallmark pushed the season premiere back from March to July.

Filming has already begun on Season 11 on the show’s Jamestown set in British Columbia. The show’s stars have already started sharing photos and videos from behind-the-scenes on social media.

The 100th episode of When Calls the Heart will premiere on Hallmark Channel on Sunday, August 6 at 8/7c.
