HEARTLAND Season 17 Premieres in U.S. This Month

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Season 17 of the Canada-based show HEARTLAND has been announced and will premiere in the U.S. on Thursday, April 25 exclusively on UP Faith & Family.

“Fans of HEARTLAND know that UP Faith & Family continues to be the exclusive home of the newest season and the first place to see all episodes of their favorite series here in the U.S.,” Hector Campos, senior vice president, content strategy and programming at UP Entertainment, said.

A new episode will be added each week, excluding a three-week intermission after episode 5.

A special event will be held for fans this month as well. “We are also big fans of the series ourselves, and this season, we are thrilled to celebrate HEARTLAND with the first-ever FanFest allowing exclusive access to talent,” Campos added.

TV Line reported, “A virtual event, HEARTLAND FanFest, will be held on April 15 from 2-3 pm ET and invite HEARTLAND fans to submit questions via social media for cast members to answer live. (Amber Marshall, Michelle Morgan and Chris Potter are among the cast expected to appear.) Participants will also get a sneak peek at an upcoming episode. FanFest will be recorded and available exclusively to UP Faith & Family subscribers during the aforementioned three-week hiatus; those wishing to attend live can register online at HeartlandFanFest.com.” 

Up Faith & Family’s website gives a synopsis of the upcoming season:

Amy and the rest of the HEARTLAND family know better than most that while dreams can sometimes come true, more often life takes us in unexpected directions. Season 17 of HEARTLAND is all about embracing the unexpected. It’s about new experiences and taking the path less traveled. In season 17 the Bartlett-Fleming family will find themselves excited for the future and ready to embrace new adventures, challenges, and relationships. But no matter how much things may change, Amy, Lou, Jack, and Tim will continue to fight for what they believe in while staying rooted in the land that has been in the Bartlett-Fleming family for generations.

HEARTLAND has been noted for its wholesome content and family values. Movieguide® previously spoke with the series’ executive producer Heather Conkie:

“I think it’s hugely important in this day and age [to include family content],” Conkie said. “I think family viewing is something that sets up a dynamic in your own family. Families are setting an appointment with their TV, which is really important because it means that families are watching together and not in separate rooms and glued to screens and other people are glued to their computer screens or their game screen screens. It’s just a really wonderful opportunity for people to watch together. For families, especially, I think it’s an oasis.”
