Whew! After some initial uncertainty, in June Hallmark confirmed When Calls the Heart would really be returning for the tenth season. There’s still plenty of room for drama in Hope Valley, but the network seems to be abandoning many of its long-running scripted shows.
Moreover, we learned that this current season of Chesapeake Shores would be the final one. Hallmark Channel, you have #Hearties’ gratitude for another season. Our knowledge of When Calls the Heart’s tenth season currently stands as follows.
When Calls the Heart returns for the tenth season, what will happen this year?
Even though no information about season 10 of When Calls the Heart has been made public, we can make some educated guesses based on the show’s past history.
We can only hope that Chris McNally’s Lucas and Elizabeth’s (potential) romance continues (Erin Krakow). Maybe we’ll get some answers about Bill’s (Jack Wagner) health condition and its severity.
There’s the impending Coulter baby and all the drama that Rosemary’s (Pascale Hutton) presence entails, whether it’s real or imagined. More information about the oil company, foundry, and mines is to come.
It’s possible that some of the single people in Hope Valley will find love with one another.
Season 10 of “When Calls the Heart” premieres on Hallmark Channel
In June of 2022, Hallmark Channel officially ordered a tenth season of When Calls the Heart. Fans were relieved to hear that because they were wondering what would happen to their favorite characters in the wake of the season finale’s hints of major upcoming developments.
At the close of Season 9, not only did Lucas (Chris McNally) propose to Elizabeth (Erin Krakow), but we also learned that Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) and Lee (Kavan Smith) were expecting their first child.
Henry Gowen’s (Martin Cummins) destiny was likewise unclear at the end of the show after he was arrested for destroying the mine.
Hallmark Media’s executive vice president of programming, Lisa Hamilton Daly, told Deadline that “When Calls the Heart continues to push the limits as to what we can do with this show.”
The lives of these famous characters have so much more to be explored, and we can’t wait for everyone at home to tune in to see what happens next.
Just when is it going to come back?
The show’s delayed comeback until mid-2023 was announced by the executive vice president of programming for Hallmark Media during the Television Critics Tour in August 2022.
Is Anyone Going to Make a Comeback?
Krakow, the show’s protagonist, will be back, as well McNally and McGarry, her two main suitors.
Many of the original cast members, including Jack Wagner, Cummins, Loretta Walsh, Johannah Newmarch, Rosenbaum, Hrothgar Mathews, and Hutton and her on-screen husband, Smith, have already shared photos from the set, suggesting that production is well underway.
(After Lori Loughlin was indicted in the college admissions scam in 2019, her character Abigail Stanton was written out of the show, for which she had starred for six seasons).
Actors Viv Leacock, Andrea Brooks, Javien Natt, Wong, Wallace, and Natasha Burnett have already filmed parts for season 10, as evidenced by their social media profiles.
When did principal photography start?
In July 2022, Krakow announced filming had begun on Instagram. A month later, she posted a video from the set with the message, “Season 10.” Thank you so much for putting on this event and for this wonderful venue. I really want this to continue for another 100 episodes. #Hearties.”
