Hallmark Channel announced today that When Calls the Hearthas been picked up for a seventh season. The long-running drama has continued its solid performance for the cable network in its current sixth season, drawing healthy ratings on Sunday nights against formidable competition.
There was recent concern for the show's future, when in March it was put on hiatus following now-former cast member Lori Loughlin's arrest for her role in a college admissions scandal. But all is well now, and new Season 6 episodes are set to return on May 5.
The series is Hallmark Channel's oldest original drama currently on the air, and has done well in building its audience with year-over-year ratings gains in key demographics.
Look for Season 7 of When Calls the Heart in 2020.
