After a few encounters, she doesn’t like Mountie Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing), but eventually she falls for him. They are married and have a child, but tragically, Jack is killed in a training accident.

Elizabeth gives birth to a son, Jack, shortly after learning of her husband’s death and naming him after him. Elizabeth is now a single mother to Jack, who was born a few years ago.

New Mountie Nathan Grant (Kevin McGarry) and businessman Lucas Bouchard (Chris McNally) arrive in Hope Valley to take over the saloon, which is owned by Bouchard’s father.

Despite the fact that each of these men are interested in Elizabeth, they approach her wooing her in very different ways.

A Brief Description of When Calls the Heart Series

When Calls the Heart is an American television drama series created by Michael Landon Jr. based on the novel of the same name by Janette Oke, part of her Canadian West series.

On January 11, 2014, the Hallmark Channel in the United States began airing the series, while on April 16, 2014, Super Channel in Canada began airing it.

Maggie Grace starred as a young teacher named Elizabeth Thatcher, while Stephen Amell as a Royal North-West Mounted Police officer named Wynn Delaney in the pilot episode, which aired in October 2013.

Erin Krakow is the star of the show, which has a large ensemble cast. The show was renewed for a sixth season by Hallmark on March 21, 2018.

The 10-episode run began in February 2019 with a two-hour Christmas special broadcast as part of Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas programme.

When will When Calls the Heart Season 8 Premiere?

There will be no Christmas special for When Calls the Heart in 2020. However, we are thrilled to discover that a new season will begin on December 1, 2019.

Sunday, February 21st on Hallmark Channel, When Calls the Heart’s eighth season begins.

The When Calls the Heart Christmas movies are shot in the summer months. Fish ice is used as a substitute for snow because there is no snow in the area.

When was Season 8 of When Calls the Heart Filmed?

When Calls the Heart was filmed for 78 days, from July 27 to November 17—the entire cast and crew. Arriving two weeks early for a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine period for the U.S. cast members was mandated by the Canadian government.

Pascal Hutton posted a photo of herself and When Calls the Heart co-star Kavan Smith from the set of the show just a few weeks into production.

It was all she wrote in her caption: “We’re back.” However, that was enough to get our pulses racing.

What is the Storyline for When Calls the Heart Season 8?

However, despite their desire to conceive a family, Lee and Rosemary Coulter face numerous obstacles on their journey.

Of course, the #ElLuNa (Lucas-Nathan-Elizabeth) love triangle will continue. No one knows for sure whether Elizabeth will finally choose between the two suitors.

The newlyweds, Jesse and Clara, are expected to appear in further episodes as they begin their new life together.

As Fiona is unemployed, we hope to see a romance between Kevin and Fiona, the blacksmith, as well as any new career path Fiona decides to pursue.

In the seventh season, she was sacked from her position as a telephone operator. Is there any hope for Henry this season? Will Ned, Mike, Molly, and Florence, the four singles in Hope Valley, also find love?

One of the cast’s newest members, Gracyn Shinyei, hinted in a recent tweet that “major twists and shocks” might be expected in season 8.

Moreover, we can already tell you that we are quite excited. This page will be updated as we learn more about the upcoming season!

Is there a When Calls the Heart season 8 Sneak Peek?

Yes! This year’s Christmas special, When Calls the Heart: Home for Christmas, was re-aired on the Hallmark Channel instead of a new one for 2020 (thanks, COVID!).

During the programme, Erin Krakow gave viewers a preview of a never-before-seen clip from the upcoming eighth season.

Where is When Calls the Heart Filmed?

Vancouver, British Columbia, serves as the backdrop for When Calls the Heart’s filming. The Hearties Family Reunion, an annual conference attended by hundreds of #Hearties, takes place in the Canadian town every year.

Additionally, visitors get to see the Jamestown Movie Set, which was created on a family-owned MacInnes Farm, where filming for the programme takes place.

Some of the sets that have two floors (row house, guest rooms in the saloon, etc.) don’t have capacity for filming upstairs, which means that those areas are made elsewhere.

What is the When Calls the Heart spinoff Series?

When Hope Calls, a new original series based on the hit Hallmark Channel series, is now available to watch on Hallmark Movies Now.

When their parents died at a young age, Lillian (Morgan Kohan) and Grace (Jocelyn Hudon) were forced to live apart.

Since they were orphaned, Grace remained in the foster care system until she reached the age of 18, but Lillian was quickly adopted. When the two reunited as adults, they decided to build an orphanage.

Is Lori Loughlin Returning to When Calls the Heart?

Lori Loughlin appears to be focusing on getting her life back on track. She was released from a low-security federal prison in Dublin, California, on December 28, 2020, after spending two months of her sentence there.

Her husband is still in prison, so it’s probable that coming home has been a bit of a culture shock.

This season, which debuted on February 21, is unlikely to feature her. When Loughlin was released from prison, the film’s production was already over.

After serving her sentence, will Crown Media and Hallmark Channel welcome her back? There isn’t enough time to tell, but the corporation recently hired a new CEO (Wonya Lucas) and the show’s main focus has always been forgiveness.

Keep your fingers crossed for Abigail’s safe return, Hallmark Channel and the community of Hope Valley.

Conclusion

The story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young teacher used to the good life, is told in When Calls the Heart. Coal Valley, a little mining hamlet south of Robb, Alberta, in western Canada, is the site of her first course project.

Simple but challenging living can be found in this location. Except for R.N.W.P. Constable Jack Thornton, everyone in Coal Valley falls in love with Elizabeth (Daniel Lissing).

In his opinion, Thatcher’s wealthy father has ruined the lawman’s career by requesting that he be sent to town to defend the daughter of a shipping tycoon.
