Will There Be a Season 8 of When Calls the Heart? Get All the Details
And just like that, another season of When the heart calls you coming to an end. Season 7 was full of ups and downs: Elizabeth’s ever-complicated love triangle with Nathan and Lucas, Faith’s sudden exit from Hope Valley, fear of Lee’s health, to name a few- some. The Hearties are naturally not ready to say goodbye to Hope Valley for the next few months – but forever.
- The season 7 finale of When the heart calls you, “Don’t Go”, aired on Sunday, April 26 at 8 p.m. on Hallmark Channel.
- Right now, the Hearties have two equally important questions: who will Elizabeth choose and East When the heart calls you to come back for another season?
- Fans have expressed concerns about the potential cancellation of the show on social media.
The heart calls you for season 8
While fans rally behind the show’s renewal and ratings remain high, Hallmark Channel has still not renewed When the heart calls you for season 8. The level of concern seems understandable: in recent years, Hallmark Channel has ordered another season while the current season was still on the air. But it’s important to remember that we are currently living in an uncertain time, so it is possible that the network will wait until an announcement is made until it can come up with a concrete plan – at least that’s what Hearties hope.
The same goes for the casting of the show. Kavan Smith, who plays Lee, recently spoke about the current crisis in an interview with TV fanatic, saying that “hopefully we will resume filming When the heart calls you.“Nathan McNally, who plays Lucas, went even further and mentioned what he would like to see happen in the upcoming unconfirmed season.” If we have the chance to go ahead with a season 8, I think Ben Rosenbaum is doing a great and hilarious job playing Hickam, and I would like to see more between him and Lucas, “he said. he declares TV fanatic.
Since the start of Season 7, fans have been asking for renewal, using the hashtag # Season8WouldBeGreat on Twitter – and there’s no end in sight. Brian Bird, the show’s creator, pointed fans pleading for another season to the real makers: the people of Hallmark Channel.
And maybe we read too much, but Hallmark Channel liked several Tweets on a potential eighth season, including this call from a loyal fan:
Super Channel Heart & Home, the Canadian network for broadcasting When the heart calls you, suggested that they also wanted more time in Hope Valley.
If the show is resumed for another season, filming will probably start later this year and will be presented in February 2021. Of course, these dates are subject to change, given the current public health crisis. In the meantime, it looks like the Hearties will have to spend their time reviewing seasons spent on Amazon or Netflix, or even venturing to Brookfield in the other Hallmark hit, When hope calls.
