TV show description:
The When Hope Calls TV show is a spin-off of the successful Hallmark Channel series When Calls the Heart, which is based on the Janet Oke book. The western Canadian drama is the first series on the Hallmark Movies Now streaming platform. It centers on sisters Lillian (Kohan) and Grace (Hudon), who were first introduced in the original series’ special When Calls the Heart: The Greatest Christmas Blessing.
Orphaned when they were still quite small, Lillian and Grace were separated while they were just toddlers and reunited, as adults, in Brookfield, in western Canada. When Hope Calls unfolds in 1916 in that same town, where the sisters open an orphanage.
Brookfield is at a crossroads. The cattle-ranching town is growing, and with that growth comes aspirations. Sometimes, Lillian and Grace feel torn between the town’s traditions and its ambitions. Still, they do the best to care for the children in their charge, as they also pursue love and happiness in their personal lives.
Together, Lillian and Grace are learning what it means to be a part of this community, which includes a Brookfield Mountie named Gabriel (Hatanaka), a ranch hand named Chuck (Hovanessian), and his mother, Tess (Crewson), who used to be a friend of Lillian’s family.
