The show, which premiered in July 2014, is based on Janette Oke’s novel of the same title from her Canadian West book series.

Since the premiere of When Calls the Heart, which was Hallmark Channel’s first original scripted series, the show has become a phenomenon.

In an Instagram post in November 2022, Krakow teased that When Calls the Heart season 10 will be one of the show’s most “engaging and electrifying seasons yet.” “Elizabeth Thatcher once said ‘For what is life but a bittersweet mixture of sadness, wonderment, hope, and joy,'” she captioned a photo of her filming as Elizabeth. “As we wrap our 10th season of @wcth_tv, I’m feeling all of those things and more! 10 seasons of stories & memories, friendship & love, and laughter & tears. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and pride! Thank you @hallmarkchannel for continuing to be such champions of WCTH; we still have lots more stories to tell!

Thanks to all of you for your dedication!!” the comment read.

Brian Bird, the co-creator and executive producer of When Calls the Heart, responded to rumors season 10 will be the last season of When Calls the Heart in a tweet in February 2023. (The rumors came after the premiere for season 10 was delayed to July 2023, when previous seasons premiered between January and April.) “As I said there are many good reasons for every decision. And trust me, we are very strong in the demos that matter to us,” he tweeted at the time. “My optimism is not misplaced. May I suggest, stop fretting and speculating and embrace the optimism with me? Just my two cents.”

He added that When Calls the Heart “consistently generates the highest ratings” for Hallmark Channels and he sees a “long run” for the show. He continued, “Well, profitability is based on ratings, which dictate advertising prices. And #WCTH consistently generates the highest ratings for scripted series on Sunday nights the last several seasons… so I like the #Hearties chances for a good long run in #HopeValley.”
