There will be a more extended hiatus than usual between seasons.

There has been much uncertainty surrounding the fate of the series recently.

Hallmark typically renews the show around the same time the series is airing, but we didn't get an official Season 10 pickup until a month after When Calls the Heart Season 9 wrapped.

"When Calls the Heart continues to push the limits as to what we can achieve with this show," Daily said when the show landed the pickup.

"There are many more stories still to be told about the lives of the beloved characters in this series, and we cannot wait for everyone at home to tune in to see what unfolds."

At the time of the delayed renewal, it was revealed that Lindsay Sturman had been set as the new showrunner.

Series lead Erin Krakow said, "I am thrilled that When Calls the Heart is coming back for a 10th season."

"With our amazing cast, crew, and talented writers, we can look forward to more adventures, laughs, tears, and stories of romance throughout the community of Hope Valley. "

We are so excited for all the viewers, especially the Hearties, to continue this journey with us!"

The series remains a strong performer for the cabler, but Hallmark as a whole has been gravitating away from its longer-running series over the last few years.

Good Witch was brought to a close on a somewhat surprising note, while Chesapeake Shores will end later this summer.

Hallmark has new dramas in the works, too.

Ride, which stars Nancy Travis, Beau Mirchoff, and Tiera Skovbye, is in production.

When Calls the Heart Quotes

Life is a journey, defined not by the destination but by the company that we keep.

Elizabeth

Elizabeth: I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised that Lucas let me go. He just knows me so well. He could sense there was something happening with Nathan.
Rosemary: People come into our lives, some for a reason, others for a season, and some for a lifetime. Jack was a season, and it was glorious. Now it's up to you to decide who might be here for a reason or perhaps even a lifetime. And once you've settled that in your heart, you'll be able to throw yourself into that person's arms with all of your being.
