Hearties, are you ready to return to Hope Valley? When Calls The Heart Season 9 has started production! Here is all we know about the upcoming season of the beloved Hallmark series.
When Calls The Heart Season 9: All The Details
When Calls The Heart is back for Season 9. Our favorite Hope Valley characters are back, and they have already begun filming. They are back filming in the Vancouver area. Best of all, according to the show’s co-creator, Brian Bird, there will be 12 episodes again.
He wrote on Twitter, “Not only did production start today on S9 of #WhenCallstheHeart… but there’s more big news: #Hearties can look forward to not 10 new eps… but 12! You spoke loudly in S8 with the best ratings in our history… so your voice has been heard!”
Erin Krakow, who plays Elizabeth Thatcher Thornton, was exuberant. She told ET, “We couldn’t be more excited to begin shooting season 9 of When Calls the Heart.” An executive producer on the show, Krakow also gave a hint about the upcoming season. “It’s a wonderful feeling being back on set with the amazing cast and crew. There are a lot more stories to tell this season and thanks to the talented writing staff, there will be more drama, adventure, and romance and we can’t wait for our fans to see what Hope Valley has in store.”
Now Elizabeth’s Love Story Can Begin!
When Calls The Heart fans can now breathe a sigh of relief. The love triangle is over. Elizabeth chose Lucas. Now, their love story can begin! We can imagine that some of the main conversations around town is that Elizabeth and Lucas are now a couple.
One of the big issues that Hearties had with Season 8 was that Lucas and baby Jack did not spend more time together. Since this had become a major issue, particularly after the Season 8 finale episode. Many on Team Nathan felt that this was not realistic and pointed to the lack of scenes between Lucas and Elizabeth’s little boy.
However, viewers should expect more scenes between Lucas and baby Jack. It should be noted that there was a scene filmed in Season 8, but that wound up in the cutting room. In addition, Erin Krakow and Chris McNally had spoken up that there should be more scenes between the two. Should Elizabeth marry Lucas, a loving relationship between Lucas and Jack is key.
It’s so gratifying that #Hearties are here for the season 9 season @erinkrakow @AvaGCooper @JaivenNatt @christian_coop1 @HuttonPascale @JamesLottJr1 @JoNewmarch @kevin_mcGarry @ChrisMcNally_ @RealPDeLuise @jaedalilymiller @WCTH_TV pic.twitter.com/Os0Osy8Br8

Will There Be A When Calls The Heart Christmas Movie In 2020?
One of the unfortunate disappointments of 2020 was that there was not a new When Calls The Heart Christmas movie. Although a movie was announced, and the intention was to make one, the general delays in filming a series during the Covid pandemic made a Christmas movie impossible.
What is more unfortunate is that Kevin McGarry had revealed on the Deck The Hallmark podcast that Erin Krakow and her brother wrote a song for the Christmas movie. Fans can only hope that there will be a movie in 2021 and that this song is included.
However, as of now, Hallmark has not made any sort of announcement or hint that they will resume making the annual Christmas movie. But, right now, there is no indication, either way, that there will be a movie on Christmas Day.
When Will When Calls The Heart Season 9 Be Released?
When should Hearties expect to see the When Calls The Heart Season 9? Generally, Hallmark will premiere a new WCTH season sometime in the late winter or early spring. What could delay any sort of release would be many cases of Covid on set. This sort of pandemic-related problem has hampered other movies and series around the world.
