EDMONTON (Aug 12, 2019) – Super Channel is pleased to announce that When Hope Calls, a spin-off of Hallmark Channel’s beloved series When Calls the Heart, will premiere on Super Channel Heart & Home with a special two-episode debut on Friday, Aug 30 at 8 p.m. & 9 p.m. ET. Each episode of the ten-episode season will also be available on Super Channel On Demand, the day following its weekly linear broadcast.
When Hope Calls stars Canadians Morgan Kohan and Jocelyn Hudon, whom Hearties will remember were introduced as Lillian and Grace, in 2018’s When Calls the Heart holiday movie, The Greatest Christmas Blessing. The series follows Lillian (Morgan Kohan) and Grace (Jocelyn Hudon), sisters who were orphaned and raised very differently, as they reunite as adults and open an orphanage in a small Northwest town in the early 1900s. The town and its people are on the cusp of change, transitioning from the simple times of the horse and buggy to the more modern times of cars and technology.
The series is currently in production 20 kilometers outside of North Bay Ontario and features a predominantly Canadian cast which also includes Wendy Crewson (Saving Hope) as Tess Stewart, Ryan-James Hatanaka (Nurses) as Gabriel Clark, Greg Hovanessian (Another Life) as Chuck Stewart, Hanneke Talbot (Star Trek: Discovery) as Maggie Pearson and Jefferson Brown (Good Witch) as Joe Moody.
When Hope Calls is produced by WHC Season 1 Productions Inc. and distributed by All Canadian Entertainment Inc.
