Look for "When Calls the Heart" Sundays nights on the Hallmark Channel!


  1. I wish it was going to be on at 8 instead of 9. That's just too late for me to stay up to watch a show on Sunday night before the work week starts.

    1. Jennifer, I agree! I was surprised they changed the time to 9. I thought it was 8 last year, so I double checked my archived schedule and yeah, it was. "When Hope Calls" aired last year at 9, immediately afterwards.

      Since WCTH is a family show, which many children could watch, it would make much better sense for it to air 8-9, then 9-10. Plus, I know it's difficult for those who have early Monday mornings.

      Hopefully many will record it to watch at a better time.

  2. Replies
    1. Same here! I'm so looking forward to returning to Hope Valley to see everyone again! :)

  3. Is When Calls the Heart the series that premeires on February 21 only one hour?

    1. Chris, That's right - each weekly episode of "When Calls the Heart" is one hour long. For Season 8 - we are receiving two bonus shows, with a total of 12 brand-new episodes! :)

  4. I can't wait either! Hope she picks Nathan!

    1. Me too! I've always been fond of Kevin McGarry, so I've been hoping from the very beginning Elizabeth would choose Nathan, but I think they are going to keep us guessing back and forth throughout the season.

    2. You're right, they do keep surprising us, but I don't see them disappointing Allie.

    3. Abigail, I'm hoping the same thing! Would love to see the four of them become a family.

  5. Is this the NEW season? 2020 or 2021?

    1. gsmith3417, This is just the start of my promotion for "When Calls the Heart" Season 8 - the new one for 2021!

      I'll be adding more episode details & images once they are released by Hallmark.

      Stay tuned! ❤

    2. it says in your post Air Date is Feb 2020. That is why I asked . Thank you!!

    3. Oh, thank you for letting me know! Guess I'm still so used to typing 2020. I corrected it above. I appreciate you catching that. :)

  6. I love these "When Calls The Heart" shows. I saw some of them at Christmastime, and they were always good. The main character reminds me a bit of my niece. Take care of yourself, Net, and I hope you have wonderful February days.


    1. Sheri, Thank you for your sweet comment. When I saw WCTH, along with the previews for Season 8, on Christmas Day I remember thinking that February felt so far away and now here we are, just weeks away!

      Enjoy the new Season! Blessings to you, Net

  7. I haven't seen Clayton James' name (blacksmith Kevin Townsend and possible love interest of Fiona's) in any cast lists for this season. With more 'horseless carriages' around, a blacksmith would be great to morph into auto mechanic. That is unless new character Joseph Canfield is the mechanic and gas station owner.

    1. Namegirl, I was actually just wondering about him, too, especially since Fiona is a bit larger than some of the other side characters on the poster and like you mentioned, he's one of her potential love interests.

      A couple days ago, I was looking over the "When Calls the Heart" cast list on IMDB and I don't know if it's completely updated or not, but some actors are listed through 2020, for Season 7, and others are listed through 2021, for Season 8. Clayton James is only listed through 2020, so that makes me think he may not be in this upcoming season after all. Or, maybe the IMDB list isn't completely updated???

  8. Hallelujah, one of my prayers has been answered!

    Movieguide.org posted a February 2021 interview with Brian Byrd, Executive Producer of When Calls the Heart. "Hallmark’s WHEN CALLS THE HEART Season 8 to Showcase Biblical Values" Url below.


    I lift Christian actors up to the Lord in prayer for strength to persevere.

    1. Namegirl, Wow! What a great interview! Thank you, Thank you... for sharing it with all of us. It is so rare to hear any new show on TV these days proclaim any values at all, especially Biblical values!

      I am so grateful to the writers and producers of this wonderful series, that they are keeping to their moral compass and aren't afraid to show that these characters do have faith. I was already looking forward to this new season, but even more so now!

      God bless you, my friend!

    2. Namegirl, Thank you so very much for sharing that link. I knew that the WCTH series was based on Janette Oke's wonderful books, but I had no idea that the Executive Producer was a Christian. He seems so well-spoken and firm in his faith and also gentle and gracious. I need to finally start watching this series. I have the dvd's for the first several seasons -- I guess it's about time I start watching and catch up with everyone else!
      (p.s. - Net, on one of these threads I saw you mention that Jen Lilly was a Christian. I had no idea. I live in such a bubble!! Hah! The only Hallmark actor I knew about that professed to be a Christian was Candace Cameron Bure. Are there others?)

    3. Here's the link to Mr. Bird's interview in The Christian Post:

    4. Jane, "When Calls the Heart" is truly such a wonderful series. It's a bit like "Little House on the Prairie" with a bit more romance, in Hallmark's style... and of course, there are plenty of inspirational stories weaved in that touch the heart.

      There is such a warmth in the community of Hope Valley, you instantly feel drawn to each character. The part with Jack was hard at the end of Season 5, if you're familiar at all with what happened, but other than that, I've just loved it!

      And to answer your question... yes, there are other Hallmark actors who have expressed having faith like Jen Lilley... including: Nikki DeLoach, Paul Greene, Lacey Chabert, Chad Michael Murray, Alexa and Carlos PenaVega, Jill Wagner, Kristoffer Polaha and many others I'm sure.

  9. Hallmark & UPTV playing Little House on the Prairie on different channels & episodes in the morning

    1. Yes, it is always sweet to see "Little House on the Prairie" on TV. I think it fits better on Hallmark Drama, than Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, but whatever.

      I still enjoy watching many episodes from the LHOTP series; in fact, I watched a little of it this morning. Love those early episodes best!

  10. Do you think it's possible that Elizabeth would build on the land that Jack bought for them? -Makes me tear when I remember Jack's words, "the whole Thornton Clan"

    1. Abigail, I love that idea. I'm sure Elizabeth still dreams of creating that dream home for little Jack, but I can hardly imagine Elizabeth moving away from Lee and Rosemary. That, too, would be a teary moment!

    2. Remember Jack Thornton had a chance to build a dream house for Elizabeth & firstborn Son; Jack Jr..

      The other Mounties hand Jack Thornton’s message bag πŸ’Ό with a blueprint in it to Nathan - he’ll leave in the middle in the night & leaves hhs Niece; Allie behinds with Jack Jr.. so, Elizabeth wants to come with him on his horse 🐴. Whenever Jack Sr.., will appear in Elizabeth & Nathan’s Dreams if he’s with them & including Allie & Jack Jr.

    3. Yes! I think it would be very sweet if Nathan(only after engaged) built the cabin by honoring Jack's plans. I would love to see little Jack wearing a baby tool-belt.

      -Also Net, was it just me or did you notice in the season 8 preview, the scenes with Nathan seemed more personal?

    4. Abigail, That is such a sweet idea! And... YES, I too thought the clips of Nathan and Elizabeth seemed more personal, deeper emotionally. That part where Lucas puts his hand on Elizabeth's hand seems somewhat forward for that time period and I'm not sure she likes it, but that's just my feel. We'll see!

    5. Oh Net, I'm so glad you noticed it too! Hopefully this means Nathan has a better chance. I re-watched the preview and it did seem forward. It looked like Elizabeth hesitated. Guess we'll find out soon, only 2 days now. Yippee!πŸ˜€

      I've really enjoyed chatting with you. Hope you have a great weekend. God Bless!❤

    6. Abby, Awe, I've enjoyed chatting with you, too! Enjoy the new season... I hope we have more chats and gushing over WCTH & Nathan! haha!

      God bless you, too!!! Net

  11. Wow! I've been re-watching the series in order. Nathan's character has really grown! I like him more and more.

    I also noticed when he tells Elizabeth he loves her(which was wonderful!), they played the same music when Elizabeth finds out Jack decided to go to the Northern Territories.

    Yes! Gushing over Nathan is so much fun!πŸ˜…

    1. Abigail, that is so sweet! I feel like we are all up & down on this WCTH roller coaster; I can't wait to see what happens next with Elizabeth and Nathan. From the previews we've been given, it's obvious Elizabeth is going to give Lucas another try, but I feel in the end her heart is already taken by Nathan, although she's afraid to freely give it since he's a Mountie like Jack.

      Enjoy the new episode Sunday night... I'll be gushing along with you, too!!!

  12. Last night's episode was exciting (a short oil gusher, fire, and boom!). I was so happy to see Lucas get a beard trim, but sad that he felt betrayed by Elizabeth about not telling him his father had left his mother. The final scene was something - a long shot of the town with Elizabeth in the middle, Nathan on the left and Lucas on the right of the screen. Lots of indecision that we have to endure this season.

    1. Namegirl, Yes!!! That was quite an intense episode of WCTH! I missed seeing the children (minus Jack) in this episode, but there was a lot of activity amongst the adults. The Lucas beard trim was nice. Do you think there could be something there between Lucas and Fiona? I love the way she rolls up her sleeves and gets in there to help others - either with their problems, like Faith and Clara... or the way she helped the men with the oil rig. She's quite the character!

      And... Oh my, things were certainly intense with Elizabeth, Lucas, and his mother. I also loved that bird's eye view of the town with Elizabeth walking and Nathan on one side and Lucas on the other. That was a fantastic way to end this episode.

      There's so much in one episode - and how sweet are Ned and Florence??? I could go on and on...

    2. Fiona is a 'modern woman' so to speak. If Lucas and Fiona have an interest in each other it has been well hidden. If there was a budding romance between Lucas and Fiona, her helping to put out the fire might be the 'spark' needed to start that romance. Who knows? Pardon my horrible pun. I shall have to watch this episode again especially the beard trim scene.

    3. Net, I was hoping Fiona and Lucas would get together. I loved the connection they had when she listens in on his mysterious phone call. They have a lot in common and they are both lively characters.

      That could soften the blow if Elizabeth picks Nathan(hope she does!πŸ˜‚ Do you think he knew Jack or maybe was his replacement at Fort Clay? Wow! Every week gets better and better.

  13. EliAbeth has always have eyes on Nathan on WCTH

  14. This past Sunday's episode (3/28) was interesting. I loved the scene where Mr. Canfield was praying out loud in the woods. I teared up. It was so good to get back to faith in this series. His talk with Jesse about marriage while sitting in the swing was a feast for thought.

    So much drama with Ned and his ulcer. Next week's episode is going to be exciting. But not have Ned at the store? Inconceivable!!

    Christopher looks like he's going to be some trouble.

  15. I love how whenever Elizabeth is talking to Lucas, her eyes(and heart)wonder to Nathan. I like how honorable he is, just like Jack.πŸ˜€
    Also love the character Allie is growing into as well! Her speaking up for Nathan during the trial make my eyes water. He is everything to her.

    Namegirl, I agree! The scene with Jesse and Mr. Canfield was so touching. I really hope he becomes the town's new full time minister.

    Hope you have a great birthday Net!!🍨 Your SSD idea is fantastic!! I hope it's really special.

  16. So sad she didn't pick Nathan, but am glad she looks happy.
