When Calls The Heart Season 10: What to expect?
While wondering what fans can expect to see in the upcoming season, we realized that not much has been disclosed yet. But we came across a report where, etonline.com exclusively spoke with executive producer/writer Elizabeth Stewart following the season 9 finale of When Calls the Heart last year to learn more about Elizabeth’s future plans now that she and Lucas are engaged, as well as Rosemary and Lee’s baby news.
“I hope the Hearties are feeling as excited as we are to dive into these long-anticipated events. But it was important to let Elizabeth take her time with Lucas and for Rosemary and Lee to become contented with their lives together before the baby surprise,” Stewart said last May, adding that the writers hoped that by season’s end they “earned” Lucas’ proposal.
“Elizabeth is in a different place than she was with Jack,” Stewart noted. “The experiences of widowhood and motherhood have deepened her. I don’t think she needs or even desires to be swept off her feet in quite that once-in-a-lifetime way she was with Jack. Including Little Jack in the proposal is a signal that her top priority now is as a mother.”
On the crucial topic of what’s next for the Coulters? With their baby due in a few weeks, as teased in season 10 footage, she hinted, “I expect that Rosemary will approach giving birth with the same take-charge attitude with which she approaches everything else, which of course means she’s in for some shock and surprises!”
Erin Krakow, series star and executive producer also hinted, “This season is full of beautiful moments and exciting twists and turns. I can’t wait for the Hearties to see what we’ve created for them. And I’m so thrilled, proud, and grateful to Hallmark that the show has been renewed for Season 11. We have so many more stories to tell. With our amazing cast, crew, and brilliant writers, there will be no shortage of romance and new adventures for the residents of Hope Valley. Having the Hearties continue this journey with us has meant the world and we are thrilled to share what’s in store these next two seasons.”
The main characters who are expected to return in the new season include Erin Krakow as Elizabeth Thornton, Kevin McGarry as Nathan Grant, Chris McNally as Lucas Bouchard, Jack Wagner as Bill Avery, Pascale Hutton as Rosemary Coulter, Kavan Smith as Leland Coulter, Martin Cummins as Henry Gowen, Andrea Brooks as Faith Carter, Amanda Wong as Mei Suo, and Chris Cope as Geoffrey Lewis. Some other recurring cast members can also reprise their roles with some new characters, which can be introduced and confirmed by the network in the coming months.
When Calls The Heart Season 9: What happened in the finale episode?
When Calls the Heart Season 9 was full of emotional, dramatic, and sweet moments. In the season, Elizabeth and Lucas’ romance heats up as the saloon owner helps throw his lady love a surprise party. Lucas also spends time bonding with Elizabeth’s son, Jack. Meanwhile, Nathan is spending time with a new woman who arrives in town, Mei Sou. In the finale episode, “Rock, A Bye, Baby,” the viewers got to see that Elizabeth worries about her relationship with Lucas, while Bill helps Gowen through the fallout of the mine explosion. Later, Rosemary and Lee receive some news.
All episodes from Seasons 1 to 8 are now available on Hallmark Movies Now.
