Hallmark Channel’s romantic drama, When Calls The Heart returns Sunday for a third season. The historical tale of life in a frontier town stars Lori Loughlin (Fuller House), Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Last Resort), Jack Wagner (The Bold and the Beautiful) and Kristina Wagner (General Hospital).

Last season, Elizabeth spent an extended period in her hometown of Hamilton and has finally decided to put down roots and make her stay in Hope Valley permanent. In the Season 3 premiere “Troubled Hearts,” Jack (Lissing) and Elizabeth (Krakow) struggle to find time alone together and when she surprises Jack with a row house of her very own, Elizabeth vows to fix it up without his help. Meanwhile, Abigail (Loughlin) is upset when Gowen (Martin Cummins) schemes to sell his share of her café to an even more demanding business partner and when Abigail’s ward Cody (Carter Ryan Evancic), doesn’t take seriously, Elizabeth worries Abigail is being over-protective and tension builds between the two friends. Then, the death of one of Hope Valley’s own becomes personal for Bill Avery (Wagner), and Frank (Mark Humphrey) feels his unlawful past closing in when Jesse (Aren Buchholz) demands the pastor reunite with a dangerous gang of outlaws who threaten the safety of Hope Valley.

Other big news for this season is that Brooke Shields will appear in the season’s final two episodes as Jack’s sassy mother. The actress, who also stars in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries franchise, Flower Shop Mysteries, says, ““She’s definitely a Brassy broad,” of her Annie Oakley-like character. Wouldn’t you love to see Shields become a permanent resident of Hope Valley?

When Calls The Heart > Hallmark Channel > Sundays at 9pm ET/8pm CT beginning Feb. 21

  1. i found a place to watch the christmas episode online its called dailymotion video. its free. it is season 3 episode 1 new years wish. the one that aired sunday is actually episode two i guess.

  2. I can’t find it on the Hallmark Channel either? I see it on the 28th. But it say’s it’s Episode 2. ????

  3. I can’t find it on the hallmark channel and I’m panicking a little. It only shows the Golden Girls. I have Century Link Direct TV. Anyone else have this trouble??

  4. I feel like I missed an episode, why didn’t it picku where it left off? Where did little Cody come from, did I miss an episode?

    • Hi Nancy,
      There was a Christmas episode (that I totally missed too!!) and I think some of the moments that caught me off guard must have been introduced in that 2-hour episode. I’m going to check with Hallmark and see if they’re re-airing the Season premiere and the holiday episode.


  5. The second season ended with Charles proposing as Jack was outside the door ready to propose. Why didn’t season two begin there? Or did I miss it?

  6. Why didn’t you repeat premiere so those who missed it can watch it?
    It’s clearly your most popular show.
    Thank you, Joy

    • Hi Joy-
      There was an episode (That was officially ‘Episode 3001’) that I missed too. I’ve contacted Hallmark to see if they’ll rerun it, but Episode 3002 that aired last night will rerun on Friday, Feb. 26 at 2pm ET.


  7. I love When Calls the Heart and have watched both seasons. This season it is opposite Signed, Sealed and Delivered (on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries) which I also love. Please rerun When Calls the Heart more times during the week so I won’t miss it. There are probably others who like both shows too.

    • Karen-
      It looks like the week’s episode of WCTH will re-air on Fridays at 2pm ET.


  8. Is it carried on another channel. We do not get Hallmark channel. Last year we picked it up on CBC> Congratulations on Season Three. Hope we can watch.
