A fan-favorite series that Hallmark Channel says is its most social series of all time is being brought back for a third season. The network today announced the pickup of the frontier drama “When Calls the Heart.”
Series stars Lori Loughlin, Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing, Jack Wagner and Kristina Wagner will all be back, with the new season due in February 2016. A two-hour sneak peek at the season’s first two episodes will take place during the 2015 holiday season.
Hallmark has ordered 10 hours for season three, which will air Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The program is based on the bestselling book series by Janette Oke.
Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Crown Media Family Networks, said in announcing the pickup: “‘When Calls The Heart’ has a passionate loyal fan base in the television landscape and their devotion to the captivating storylines and characters has made this series grow with outstanding ratings and top social media engagement. We are incredibly proud of the series’ success and look forward to bringing families back together on Sunday nights in its new day and time period.”
