Countdown to premiere date (EST)
THIS SHOW IS YET TO CONFIRM
The highly anticipated season 10 of When Calls the Heart is set to make a return, and fans are excited to see what the beloved characters will face next. According to Lisa Hamilton Daly, Hallmark Media’s executive vice president of programming, the show continues to push the boundaries of what can be achieved with this family western drama, which is based on Janette Oke’s book of the same name.
The announcement of season 10’s renewal was made in June 2022, just one month after season 9’s finale aired on the Hallmark Channel. When Calls the Heart has been on the air for seven years, making it the network’s longest-running drama in history.
Erin Krakow stars as Elizabeth Thornton, who moves to the small town of Hope Valley to become the school teacher for the coal mining community. After adapting to the Canadian frontier, Elizabeth marries Royal North-West Mounted Police Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing). Unfortunately, their relationship comes to an end in season 5 when Jack dies. Nonetheless, fans remain eager to follow Elizabeth and the other characters’ journeys as the show continues to unfold.
Story until now
The cast of When Calls the Heart is making a return to Hope Valley for season 10, and fans are eagerly anticipating what’s to come. In June 2022, Hallmark Media’s executive vice president of programming, Lisa Hamilton Daly, stated, “When Calls the Heart continues to push the limits as to what we can achieve with this show. There are many more stories still to be told about the lives of the beloved characters in this series and we cannot wait for everyone at home to tune in to see what unfolds.”
The show’s renewal announcement came a month after the Hallmark Channel aired the season 9 finale, and seven years following the premiere of When Calls the Heart. Inspired by Janette Oke’s book of the same name, this family western drama is the network’s longest-running drama series.
Erin Krakow stars as Elizabeth Thornton, who relocates to the small town of Hope Valley to work as the schoolteacher for the coal mining city. After adjusting to the Canadian frontier, Elizabeth weds Royal North-West Mounted Police Constable Jack Thornton, portrayed by Daniel Lissing. Their relationship, however, ends in season 5 when Jack passes away.
Following her husband’s death, Elizabeth, now a single mother, meets businessman Lucas Bouchard (Chris McNally). Although they begin as friends, and she has a romance with Nathan Grant (Kevin McGarry), Elizabeth and Lucas eventually become romantically involved.
How did the season end
In the season 9 finale, which aired in May 2022, Lucas asks Elizabeth to marry him, and by the end of the episode, she seems content after accepting his proposal. Lucas enlists the help of Elizabeth’s son, Jack, in his proposal, indicating that she prioritizes being a mother. In May 2022, the show’s co-executive producer and writer, Elizabeth Stewart, stated, “Including Little Jack in the proposal is a signal that her top priority now is as a mother… We made a conscious effort in season 9 to bring Lucas and Little Jack together.”
Stewart hinted that Lucas and Jack’s relationship will evolve once they become stepfather and stepson, but it may not be easy for Elizabeth and Lucas to get to the altar. The producer also revealed, “All I can say is that the course of true love never did run smooth!”
In season 9, Lucas finally proposes to Elizabeth after years of pursuing her, resulting in a happily ever after for the couple. Meanwhile, Lee and Rosemary prepare for parenthood, and despite Lee running into the burning saloon, he emerges unscathed. Mei, who was attempting to clear her name in Chicago, and Henry, who intentionally caused the mine to collapse one week earlier, both return to Hope Valley.
When will it release?
During the Television Critics Tour in August 2022, the Executive Vice President of Programming at Hallmark Media declared that the show would not be back until mid-2023. The company confirmed in February 2023 that new episodes would premiere on Sunday, July 30th.
