Ex-GH’s Jack & Kristina Wagner’s When Calls the Heart renewed
Updated April 18:
Good news for ‘Hearties’! The network has greenlit a fourth season of “When Calls the Heart.” Production on the new season is scheduled to commence in Vancouver, B.C, Canada, this summer for a 2017 premiere.
Previously reported on July 28, 2015.
“General Hospital” alum Jack Wagner (Port Charles’ ex-Frisco Jones) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia Scorpio) will return for the third season of Hallmark’s “When Calls the Heart.” The show’s second season just concluded, and it was announced that the third will begin in February 2016, with a special sneak peek during the 2015 holiday season. Jack and Kristina Wagner joined When Calls the Heart during its second season.
The show tells the story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow, “Army Wives”), a young teacher who is thrust into life in Coal Valley, a small coal mining town. The show also stars Lori Loughlin (“Full House”) as Abigail Stanton, a miner’s widow, and Daniel Lissing (“Last Resort”) as Constable Jack Thornton, Elizabeth’s love interest. The series is inspired by Janette Oke’s bestselling book series about the Canadian West.
