When Calls the Heart with newly widowed Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow) in a town of widows starts filming season 6 in Langley today.
With two new “boys in town”:
Chris McNally as charming gambler and saloon owner Lucas Bouchard.
And Kevin McGarry as the new Mountie Nathan Grant.
What’s it about?
When Calls the Heart is the story of Elizabeth Thatcher, a shipping magnate’s daughter accustomed to 19th century high society life, who goes to teach in the small coal mining town of Hope Valley, where a mining explosion has left many widows.
Elizabeth’s wealthy father ensures that RCMP Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) is assigned to Hope Valley to protect his daughter. As Elizabeth adapts to the frontier lifestyle, she warms up to Jack and their series-long romance culminated in a wedding in season 5.
But her happiness was cut short in the season 5 finale when Jack died, leaving Elizabeth a widow with a baby on the way.
Other characters: Abigail Stanton (Lori Loughlin), Bill Avery (Jack Wagner), Rosemary Coulter (Pascale Hutton), Leland Coulter (Kavan Smith).
And there will be a new When Calls the Heart Christmas movie to bridge seasons 5 and 6.
