'When Calls the Heart' Season 8 — Elizabeth's Love Triangle and Revelations about the TV Show's Fate

Fans kept calling for it during season seven. Now, they finally know if their favorite Hallmark show, "When Calls the Heart," will be renewed for another season. And there's something else they'd like to find out. 

"When Calls the Heart" fans have been gunning for another season to officially be announced since season seven's start. Yet it wasn't until the finale that they finally got an answer


With the current coronavirus pandemic, it came as no surprise that even the cast was concerned about filming for any future episodes. Brian Bird, the show's creator, further noted that things weren't up to him. 

In a straight-shooting tweet, Bird responded to a fan saying that the decision to have another season wasn't up to him, it was up to the Hallmark Network. 


Well, right after season seven's finale, Erin Krakow, who plays Elizabeth Thornton on the series, appeared in a short YouTube video that revealed the good news. 

"From my heart and home to yours, I'm thrilled to announce the all-new season 8 of "When Calls the Heart" coming next year," she said, looking gorgeous in a yellow dress while sitting on a gray couch. 


The delayed renewal can be attributed to the outbreak crisis, which has caused other show's seasons to end prematurely, and made countless premiere dates an unsure matter. 

What a relief for fans wanting to learn what's next for the brunette beauty when it comes to her love triangle involving two handsome men. Will she choose Nathan or Lucas? 


In the last episode, Elizabeth was worried about Nathan, who was out on war duty and faced gunpoint alongside his partner. Elizabeth didn't know at first who had died between them. 

The hug she gave him in the episode convinced some viewers the two were meant to be. Others were on Team Lucas, the saloon owner who was more willing to bare his feelings for Elizabeth. 

Also, they'll learn the outcome of Lee's unexpected health issue, and what happens with Faith after she up and left Hope Valley. There's a lot to wrap up next season. 


Elsewhere, the absence of actress Lori Loughlin, who played town mayor Abigail Stanton, has sunk in and nearly been forgotten by viewers. Loughlin is wrapping up court matters for a college admission scandal. 

Her and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were allegedly involved in bribery with the University of Southern California to get their daughters into the institution.

The situation caused fans to have doubts about the show's return last season. However, Krakow confirmed that the season was on earlier this year

The previous season opened up with Elizabeth facing the death of Jack Thornton as a result of an avalanche. The top-rated drama series has a lot of twists and turns, but it always comes down to love.
