From Executive Producer, Brian Bird: #Hearties, thanks for sticking with us through this challenging time. As you now know… the show not only must go on, but will go on, starting Sunday night, May 5th and Monday night, May 6th, and then in our regular Sunday night time slot after that through the remainder of Season 6. Life throws all of us painful curveballs, and the only way to survive is to walk right through them with courage, grace, a forgiving spirit, and most of all, hope. Many of you have wondered what the future holds for our cast and crew, and for the citizens of Hope Valley. Your care and concern means the world to us, and the best way we can thank you is to encourage you the way you encourage us because… Hope always lives here. #WhenCallsTheHeart #WCTH #Hearties (📷: @janettemsu)
Although the fate of Abigail Stanton has not been revealed, fans did get a little more insight into the new episodes that will be airing in May.
A look into new When Calls The Heart episodes
During Erin Krakow’s announcement, fans got to see another sneak preview of the next episode of When Calls The Heart.
The telephone has made it to Hope Valley, and it looks like Rosemary Coulter is one of the first people to start regularly using it. In the preview shown in Krakow’s announcement, we see Lee Coulter talking with the new Mountie, Nathan Grant, when he receives a call from Rosemary.
Rosemary first chastises Lee for chasing after bandits, but once he reassures her that he’s perfectly fine, she quickly changes topics to ask about the new Mountie. Although the telephone is supposed to be used for emergencies, it looks like it’s a great opportunity for Rosemary to find out all of the town gossip.
For more information on When Calls The Heart, be sure to tune into the Hallmark Channel Saturday, April 13, to watch their new movie Bottled With Love at 8/7 c. There will be another announcement made during the new movie, and hopefully some more previews as to what’s new in Hope Valley.
When Calls the Heart returns Sunday, May 5 at 8/7c on Hallmark.
