SALT LAKE CITY — It’s been a minute since we had an update to “When Calls the Heart.” Until now.
Her Instagram post included a set picture of herself and Kavan Smith, who plays her on-screen husband.
- "Thank you #hearties for your support and love and mostly your PATIENCE," Hutton wrote in the caption. "I promise we will be back on the air and in your homes soon."
- "Heading up north to work. Just wanted to wish everybody a happy weekend," Wagner wrote in his post.
Context: Hallmark announced in March that “When Calls the Heart” would go on a temporary hiatus after the show’s star Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulliwere accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli, were considered team crew recruits for the University of Southern California even though neither competed in crew. Hallmark cut ties with Loughlin in the immediate wake of the scandal.
- "With the full support of the network, we have gone on a creative hiatus to do some retooling on the remaining Season 6 episodes. That process has already begun. Hope Valley will return to your TV screens as soon as we can bring the episodes to you," the show said in a statement, according to Today.com. "Hope Valley will return soon!" and, "The show must go on."
