When Calls the Heart Season 8 returns to Hallmark this Sunday, but where is this beloved show filmed? Fans are in for a treat as the new season brings 12 episodes featuring the stunning landscape and historical buildings. For two consecutive seasons, fans saw Elizabeth deal with her own heart as two men, Nathan and Lucas try and win her over. Fans can’t wait to see what happens in Coal Valley, Alberta. But, is that where they shoot the film?
When Calls the Heart location: is it filmed in Alberta?
We reported that in Season 7, right near the end, “Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) ran into Nathan’s arms.” Of course, fans can’t wait for her to finally make her choice. They want her happy again. And, it’s been some time since Jack Thornton died. But, don’t expect it to all get resolved in the first episode. Something always comes along that makes Elizabeth step back from making the final decision on her love life. Of course, a lot of fans simply started watching the show because the beautiful scenery alone makes it worth watching.
So, where is this popular series filmed? Well, fortunately, The Cinemanholic dug around for answers. Actually, When Calls the Heart is filmed in British Columbia, which borders Alberta in Canada. However, it becomes way more interesting than that. Did you know that the main set is featured in other movies?
Where’s the main set for the show?
The show’s mainly shot at the Jamestown Movie Set in Langley. Just a short half-hour drive from Vancouver, the set’s “located on the MacInnes Farm.” The outlet notes that “over 100 movies” made came from the beautiful setting. Apart from When Calls the Heart, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Timeless, The Book of Beasts, and Riverdale also filmed on the set.
Kevin MacInnes can likely claim some fame from the fact that he identified it as a possible location for the Coal Valley show. He told Michael Landon Jr, about the set.
Now, fans enjoy knowing that soon they will see more of this gorgeous landscape. And, the historic buildings that they know so well.
But, will fans see an old familiar face return in Season 8? If you hope that Lori Loughlin makes a return to When Calls the Heart, disappointment awaits. Popculture revealed that none of the teasers or promo materials feature her. She only recently completed her prison sentence. No doubt she nurses an ambition to return to acting, but most likely, she ended her time with the Hallmark show forever.
Do you know where the show was located? And, do you find it interesting that lots of other movies use the same set? Sound off in the comments below.
