- When Calls the Heart has been on an extended break since news broke of Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli's involvement with a college admissions scam.
- Producer Brian Bird confirmed that the show was not getting cancelled, but Hallmark has provided few details since.
- The network has announced they will reveal new information on April 10.
When Calls the Heart fans, cancel your plans and set your alarms for 2:00 p.m. EST tomorrow because the show is airing a very important 3-minute clip you won’t want to miss.
The sixth season of the Hallmark series has been on hiatus in the wake of Lori Loughlin’s involvement with a widespread college admissions scandal. Stars like Pascale Hutton and Paul Greene have encouraged Hearties to be patient while the network decides how to proceed without Lori, who played Abigail Stanton. But how can we be patient when we’ve been away from Hope Valley for so long!?
Fortunately, Hallmark and producer Brian Bird are giving us a glimmer of hope. First, Brian admitted he knew when the drama will return. "Yes, but I guess you’ll just have to wait along with the rest of the #Hearties until we’re ready to announce it," he said on Twitter after a fan asked him if he had any insight.
Then, Brian in April reading, “Something is happening on your cable and satellite systems Wednesday at 2PM EST/1PM CENTRAL/12 NOON MOUNTAIN/11AMPST. You really, really do not want to miss it. Really.”
No, this isn’t a drill. If you visit the online, you’ll see that a “Behind the Scenes” clip will air at that time for three. whole. minutes. That’s 180 seconds more than Hearties have had in weeks!
The cryptic listing provides no further information, forcing us to draw our own conclusions: Will it be a statement about Lori? A commercial that shows how the new episodes will look without her? Will they bring Jack back to dull the pain of losing Abigail? Will they recast Lori’s character?
Sure, they may not be able to pack that much into three minutes. But we hope the clip will provide some much needed answers. Anyone else already finding it hard to sleep tonight?
