Series info and storyline
When Calls the Heart is a Canadian-American family drama / Western TV series based on the eponymous book by Janette Oke and developed by Michael Landon, Jr. The book was first adapted into a TV movie that aired in October 2013, and was subsequently picked up for a full series, to be eagerly renewed for a second, and then a third season. The third season is currently on the air, having debuted on February 21, 2016. It is produced by Believe Pictures, Brad Krevoy Television and Jordan Films.
The plot of When Calls the Heart starts off in 1910 and revolves around the life story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), who is assigned as a teacher to a small mining town in Western Canada. She has to settle into the ways of the Canadian frontier living after a very different lifestyle which she led previously as a member of a wealthy family in a big city in the East.
Excellent ratings and likely renewal
The series has been hauling in excellent ratings with a rare steadiness – averaging approximately the same numbers, above the 1.5 million viewers mark throughout the course of its run. In fact, the beginning of the freshman cycle was not quite as popular, but the viewrship picked up later on in the season. The series boasts an 8.6/10 score on IMDb with viewers noting its wholesome, positive quality that makes it perfect for family viewing, which is so rarely seen these days. The thoughtful script, great actors, suspenseful plot and general heart-warming nature all make When Calls the Heart a very likely candidate for renewal. We will bring you the news as soon as there is on official announcement on the future of the series.
