What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the Hallmark cable channel, the When Calls the Heart TV show stars Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing, Lori Loughlin, Jack Wagner, Martin Cummins, Pascale Hutton, and Kavan Smith. Niall Matter, Spencer Drever, and Mark Humphrey are among those recurring in season four. A historical drama based on Janette Oke’s novel, When Calls the Heart follows Elizabeth Thatcher (Krakow), a young teacher once accustomed to the world of high society. Taking an assignment to teach in the small Western Canada coal mining town of Hope Valley completely changed her life. The fourth season finds Abigail (Loughlin) as mayor. She must now deal with the possibility of the National Pacific Railroad running a new route through Hope Valley. Not all of the residents are sold on the idea and conflict ensues. Meanwhile, with Jack’s (Lissing) help, Elizabeth tries to integrate her settlement students with the town’s children.

Allow me to set the scene. Imagine yourself back in the 2015-16 television season, while the television vulture is watching and waiting for a bite to eat. Now picture my utter dismay after this little show’s third season ratings increased by nearly 75% in the 18-49 year old demo and by more than 23% in terms of average total audience. When Calls the Heart mocks my existence. Alas, season four is also doing well so I suspect that this Hallmark series will be renewed for season five. I’ll keep watching but other shows have much bigger troubles. 4/24 update: This show has been renewed.
