For several years, Hearties have enjoyed watching the When Calls The Heart Christmas movie special on Christmas Day. Many families have even planned their holiday events around this special.
Now, people are starting to wonder whether there will be a movie in 2021. This is what we now know.
Will There Be When Calls The Heart 2021 Christmas Movie?
Hearties want to know whether there will be a When Calls The Heart Christmas movie. Currently, there has not been an announcement. They have already begun to start Season 9 production. But, Hearties already want to see Christmas with Lucas, Elizabeth, and baby Jack.
One fan went to Twitter and wrote, “Do they usually film the Christmas movie last? They most likely do because of the cooler weather. I really hope there is a Christmas movie.” She then continued, “I need… I want…a Christmas story for Lucas, Elizabeth, and little Jack.”
So far, Hallmark has revealed that there will be 12 episodes again this upcoming season. However, this is what Hallmark did in 2020 to make up for the canceled 2020 holiday movie. Does this repeat mean no Christmas movie? That is very possible.
Christmas Movie Social Media Site Doesn’t Think WCTH Christmas 2021 Will Happen
Anyone who watches Christmas movies, especially Hallmark, follows Ho! Ho! Holiday Viewing Twitter page. They have all the latest news on Christmas movies. On Thursday, they shared Brian Bird’s tweet that they are filming 12 episodes for Season 9.
Along with that retweet, they predicted the When Calls The Heart Christmas movie. “With WHEN CALLS THE HEART officially announcing another 12-episode regular season, it’s unlikely we’ll see the annual Christmas movie return to Hallmark Channel’s December 25th schedule. Which is a little odd, because it always got surprisingly great ratings for the network.”
This Christmas movie expert does not believe there will be a When Calls The Heart Christmas movie. Yet, fans should remember that Hallmark has not yet addressed this issue. A Christmas movie has neither been confirmed nor denied.
This is an article from last year, but it says they usually film the Christmas movie in the summer. https://t.co/JO99EJJl2X

They Canceled The When Calls The Heart Christmas Movie 2020
Why wasn’t there a When Calls The Heart Christmas movie in 2020? The world of television and movies was a bit off during 2020 during the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. But, WCTH was one of the first film sets to start filming, once the studios opened up.
They had a plan for filming. The crews and cast would work in pods. Along with other protocols, including mask-wearing, there was a set of rules that made it safe for Hallmark to film their top-rated series.
Moreover, a week before production began, in mid-July 2020, Hallmark announced that they would be filming a WCTH Christmas special. Hearties felt that things were quite normal, despite the abnormal year.
However, during the last week of September, Hallmark announced that they would not be filming a WCTH Christmas movie for 2021. That is because it just takes that much longer to film. This is due to the protocol and laws around filming during this recent pandemic. It just took that much longer.
