Hallmark’s “When Calls The Heart” Season 10 is just months away from premiering on the network and we’re beyond excited!!
The season is set to debut on Hallmark on July 30th around the same time the 11th season will begin filming.
WCTH Actor Chris McNally recently spoke with ET about the upcoming season.
Chris teased that Lucas is up against some big forces in the new episodes.
“I don’t want to give anything away but I will say that Lucas has not faced an obstacle this large, this drastic since he’s joined the show,” he shared, adding that there are “some pretty epic, pivotal conflict to overcome and it’s sort of all-encompassing.
I think people will enjoy the first section of this season because there is almost, perhaps, a lack of romance, but not for lack of trying. It’s just that we take an angle that I think people can all register with, which is, sometimes life gets busy,” McNally says. “And so you get to find these two people who are newly engaged, they’re in love with each other, infatuated with each other and they feel like there’s other things that are kind of pulling them apart. And there’s this desire and need to kind of fight to play the wedding.”
Watch the interview here:
“When Calls the Heart” follows the story of a young schoolteacher and single mother, Elizabeth Thornton (Erin Krakow), in the quaint town of Hope Valley. When her husband is suddenly killed on duty, she must find the courage and strength to move forward. With the help and guidance of the townspeople and her friends, she adjusts to the ever-changing times and the people that enter her life.
Other central characters include Rosemary Coulter (Pascale Hutton), Elizabeth’s best friend, the town’s loveable busybody once described as “part Broadway showgirl, part Frontier woman,” and her patient husband, the upstanding businessman Leland Coulter (Kavan Smith). Judge Bill Avery (Jack Wagner) works hard to protect the town and to cement his position as Hope Valley’s ultimate authority. Fairly new to the community are Mountie Nathan Grant (Kevin McGarry) and saloon owner Lucas Bouchard (Chris McNally), who both vie for the attention of Elizabeth. With the added pressure on deciding between her suitors, writing a novel and taking care of her son, Elizabeth continues to teach the children of Hope Valley all while trying to navigate the challenges in her life.
