“When Calls the Heart” fans won’t have to wait long for the show to return to the Hallmark Channel.

What’s going on: “WCTH” star Erin Krakow appeared in a new video message to announce the return date for her beloved Hallmark Channel show.

  • The show will return on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. MST.

Last season: The show’s season 6 finale concluded with the Founders’ Day Festival, which brought a bunch of melodrama to Hope Valley, as I wrote about at the time.

  • Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) was unsure about whether she should dance with Lucas or Nathan. She chose to dance with Lucas but she seemed unsure with the choice.
  • Elsewhere, Jesse (Aren Buchholz) and Clara (Eva Bourne) got engaged.
  • Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) took a step toward parenthood.
  • Carson (Paul Greene) and Faith (Andrea Brooks) revealed a budding romance.

Yes, but: The show won’t be taking an extended hiatus this year as it did in 2019 in the wake of Lori Loughlin’s college admissions scandal controversy.

Scandal and fallout: Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,00 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, could be crew team recruits for the University of Southern California. The couple pleaded not guilty to those charges.
