WHEN CALLS THE HEART recently hired Lindsay Sturman, known for series like SUPERGIRL and TEEN WOLF, who has over 15 years of experience in the business.
“WHEN CALLS THE HEART continues to push the limits as to what we can achieve with this show,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, Crown Media Family Networks’ executive vice president of programming, in a statement about the show’s renewal. “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.”
Laurie Ferneau, the senior vice president of development at Crown Media Family Networks, echoed Daly’s enthusiasm, adding, “We are also excited to welcome to the family our new showrunner, Lindsay Sturman, who brings her immense talent to the show.”
WHEN CALLS THE HEART star and executive producer Erin Krakow is equally excited about the show’s tenth season.
“I am thrilled that WHEN CALLS THE HEART is coming back for a tenth season,” she shared. “With our amazing cast, crew, and talented writers, we can look forward to more adventures, laughs, tears, and stories of romance throughout the community of Hope Valley. We are so excited for all the viewers, especially the Hearties, to continue this journey with us!”
Movieguide® previously reported on the buzz surrounding the announcement of WHEN CALLS THE HEART’s tenth season:
After the finale of WHEN CALLS THE HEART Season 9 on May 22, the show’s diehard fans, also known as Hearties, wondered if Season 10 would be announced.
Last year, WCTH was one of the most-watched shows on cable television.
According to Newsweek after another successful year, WHEN CALLS THE HEART outperformed all cable shows except YELLOWSTONE.
However, Hallmark has yet to renew WCTH for Season 10.
Last year, Erin Krakow, who plays Elizabeth Thatcher in the show, was announced for Season 9 alongside the Season 8 finale.
While the new season is not yet confirmed, some cast and crew have already discussed what Season 10 could hold for their on-screen characters.
Showrunner John Tinker revealed on the Heart to Heart YouTube show: “I do think in some fashion, should we go to Season 10, we need to address the message that Jack gave Abigail. Somehow, that’s going to have to be conveyed in a fulfilling, satisfying way.”
WHEN CALLS THE HEART remains of the most uplifting, family-friendly options on TV, which Movieguide® previously honored at past Movieguide® Award Galas.
