Everything we know so far about Season 2 of When Hope Calls
Good news for all those who have been waiting for a second season of When Hope Calls: it’s coming, and it’s coming soon.
GAC Family — the new network started by former Hallmark exec Bill Abbott — has picked the show up for Season 2, which will premiere on December 18 with the first in a two-part Christmas special.
In When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, the folks of Brookfield decide to enter a magazine competition for the No.1 Country Christmas Town.
As everyone begins decorating, Abigail Stanton (played by Lori Loughlin, in her return to TV) arrives in town with a troubled boy she wants to introduce to Lillian.
Lilian and the orphans do their best to restore the boy’s faith in humanity, just as people in the town begin to become competitive with each other over the Christmas decorations.
Who is in it?
Already Morgan Kohan has confirmed she will reprise her role as Lilian Walsh in the series. RJ Hatanaka, who plays the town constable, Gabriel Winslow, has also allegedly signed on.
Unfortunately, Jocelyn Hudon, who played Grace in the original series will not be in Season 2 because of scheduling conflicts.
Deadline has reported that Daniel Lissing will make an appearance, as well. Lissing played Mountie Jack Thornton for five seasons on Hallmark Channel’s When Calls the Heart. His character was killed shortly after marrying Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow) on the show.
When Hope Calls
The series is a spinoff of the successful Hallmark series When Calls the Heart, which is based on the Canadian West books by author Janette Oke.
Season 1 premiered in 2019 on Hallmark Channel. In When Hope Calls, sisters Lillian and Grace are reunited as adults after being separated as children. When their parents died, the sisters were put in an orphanage. Lillian was eventually adopted, and spent years looking for her sister.
