In the ninth season, Hope Valley is in a state of growth, with the foundry’s progress and the evolution of key relationships.
Airing on Sunday nights, the ninth season of When Calls the Heart averaged a 0.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.10 million viewers. Compared to season eight, that’s down by 25% in the demo and down by 13% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM).
Hallmark has revealed that season 10 will launch on Sunday, July 30th and will have 12 episodes. In addition, the cable channel has announced that season 11 has been ordered. Production will begin in July on the next batch of 12 episodes. A 2024 premiere date for those will be announced later.
“When Calls the Heart has continued to be a standout amongst our Hallmark catalogue and we’re thrilled that we’re able to bring more stories of faith and community to the homes of millions of viewers,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President, Programming. “The uplifting nature of the show paired with the love and positivity in the storytelling makes for a very heartwarming television experience and it’s only going to get bigger and better in season 11.”
“I am beyond excited for Season 10 of When Calls the Heart to premiere July 30,” said Erin Krakow, series star and executive producer. “This season is full of beautiful moments and exciting twists and turns. I can’t wait for the Hearties to see what we’ve created for them! And I’m so thrilled, proud, and grateful to Hallmark that the show has been renewed for Season 11. We have so many more stories to tell. With our amazing cast, crew, and brilliant writers, there will be no shortage of romance and new adventures for the residents of Hope Valley! Having the Hearties continue this journey with us has meant the world and we are thrilled to share what’s in store these next two seasons!”
What do you think? Are you looking forward to the 10th season premiere? Are you happy to know that When Calls the Heart has already been renewed for an 11th season?
So glad WCTH has been renewed for S11 and S10 has a premiere date. I love this show. It is so wholesome and uplifting. Looking forward to being back in Hope Valley. Excited for the Coulters and most especially excited for Lucas and Elizabeth!!! Hoping for a beautiful wedding!!!
This show just gets better and better;!
I love it can’t wait to watch next episodes
I’m thrilled to hear that “When Calls the Heart” is back! It’s my favorite show!
Great news for the US but what about the rest of the world, why won’t Hallmark syndicate their shows properly rather than relying on streaming platforms?
So glad there will be 10 &11 seasons! It’s one of the best series on Hallmark! I’m sure all the “hearties” is thrilled!
This is good, family fare, which is all too rare these days. I wish there would be longer seasons though! 10 episodes just aren’t enough, how about full seasons?
There’s twelve episodes
So thrilled for Season 10 AND especially thrilled to know that Season 11 will happen. This show has been an anchor for my soul and brings such a positive and encouraging segment to my life– especially during the last 3-4 years when life has been hard and the world is in such chaos. Tuning into WCTH AND watching all the former seasons- is a balm that brings peace and hope to my life and our family and SO many friends too– we love having HOpe Valley be a part of our lives– we pray for many more seasons BEYOND Season… Read more »
I am thrilled to hear the show will be continued.
I absolutely love this show and have watched it from the start!! So excited for 2 more seasons ❤️
So looking forward to the next 2 seasons! Love this series!
And Lori Laughlin? She paid for her crime and deserves a second chance. Who knows, maybe she doesn’t want to go back to Hallmark. She was in a good Christmas movie on Great American Family. But I would like to see more of the Garage Sale Mysteries. I suppose the çast has all moved on.
I’m super excited! I watch with a group of friends/fans and we are all thrilled, especially to hear there’s a season 11! I personally love the cast and writing. We are all thrilled for Brian Bird, Michael Landon Jr and the entire cast and crew!
Not really. I have been disappointed in the last 3 seasons especially with the loss of Lori Loughlin.
Lori Loughlinis she coming back??? I hope so . Everyone deserves a second chance!
