What is When Calls The Heart?

The series is based on the book of the same name by author Janette Oke. Set in the early 20th century, the series centers on the residents who live in the small west Canadian town of Coal Valley. (The town gets a name change to Hope Valley later in the series). It stars Erin Krakow as Elizabeth Thatcher, a woman born in a big city with wealth but moved to Coal Valley to work as a teacher. The series also stars Jack Wagner, Martin Cummins, and (for the first five seasons and part of the sixth) Lori Loughlin.

Where can I watch the first five seasons of the show via a streaming service?

Unfortunately, the first five seasons have recently been removed from Netflix in the US. Right now, no streaming service offers the first six seasons of the show in the US.

Is When Calls The Heart season 6, season 7, and season 8 on Netflix?

Not at the moment. Since the first five seasons have left Netflix, we don’t hold out much hope that seasons 6, 7, or 8 will debut on the service anytime soon.

Where can I watch When Calls The Heart season 6, season 7, and season 8?

To watch When Calls The Heart season 6 and season 7 online, along with the first five seasons, you will have to pay for individual seasons or episodes on digital movie stores, including Amazon Prime Video.

You can also watch all 10 episodes of season 7 on Hallmark Movies Now. It’s available for $5.99 a month or $59.99 with an annual subscription.

Season 8 has just been completed. If you have a paid cable or satellite TV subscription, you can watch the current episodes online for free (with ads) on the Hallmark Channel website.

Was Lori Loughlin fired from the show during season 6?

Yes. The actor, who played Aunt Becky on Full House, played the role of Abigail Stanton on When Calls The Heart from the beginning of the series. However, in the middle of season 6 in March 2019, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused by the FBI of illegally paying a third party so their daughters could attend the University of Southern California. Loughlin recently pled guilty to fraud charges and was sentenced to two months in prison.

The Hallmark Channel quickly fired Loughlin from the show. It also paused production of the sixth season of When Calls The Heart to do some reediting of previously filmed episodes and rewrite upcoming episodes.

You may notice that in the middle of the season, Loughlin’s Abigail Stanton is suddenly gone from Hope Valley, with a quick narration stating that she has left the town to take care of her sick mother.
