The veteran drama will continue in 2019.
March 21, 2018
Hallmark Channel announced today that When Calls the Heart has been renewed for a sixth season. The long-running drama has continued to perform well for the network in its current fifth season, drawing healthy ratings on Sunday nights against formidable competition.
Inspired by Janette Oke's book of the same name, When Calls the Heart takes place in the early 20th century and follows a young teacher from a wealthy eastern family who moves to a small western coal mining town for her first classroom assignment.
The series is the cable channel's oldest original drama currently on the air, and will hit the 50-episode mark when it airs its fifth-season finale on April 22. The show's run has been notable in that it has managed to build its audience with year-over-year ratings gains in key demographics.
Look for Season 6 of When Calls the Heart in 2019.

I am so heartbroken that Jack is not returning. I love this show so much and can't think of Jack not being there for Elizabeth and Jack Jr. The chemistry between Jack & Elizabeth was amusing. A love story that ended to soon.

Great Family Show. I was not surprised that something happened to Jack as he was not present for quite a few shows so I suspected he may be leaving.
A year ago we changed cable providers and we could not get the show on Sunday night. It was a show I looked forward to seeing and was disappointed until I discovered it could be ordered on the Super Channel. However the last few episodes did not appear until the third week in May - I had seen Episode 9 - it then disappeared from the list - all good now thankgoodness. I did enjoy watching Episodes from Series 1 and 2 that I had missed. Great Show!! Hope it keeps coming
for many years to come.

I am so sad about Jack being gone. It took so long for them to finally get together, it's just not fair to all of us who love the show not to be able to see them together for the birth of the baby. I don't think Daniel realized how much everyone loved him.

For all the people who want to know what happened behind the scenes to Daniel Lissing, take a look at http://www.hallmarkchannel.com/when-calls-the-heart which has an interview with the three principal actors including Lissing about what happened.
Lissing decided over a year ago to leave the series after his current contract expired for "deeply personal reasons". The interview made it clear he left on good terms and with the strong friendship of the other two principal actors.
Given that Lissing was leaving, the reasoning behind the decision to kill off Jack was talked about. And yes, he's gone.

You have months to change direction.

Honesty with the fans 18 months ago , with wedding and baby over that year then a recast would have worked. Talented cast and writers would have been able to do this. Better recast than death!!!!!!!

I hope Jack is still alive and there is a mistake but if not I would have him come back in goood and bad times to left the viewers know he is there watching over her and his child. It would have been nice if there would have been a seen if he would have came back as a spirit to say his good-bye to Elizabeth.

I hope that Jack is still alive in the end but if he can't be there in really life make his spirit be there in good times in bad so we know he is there watching out for Elizabeth and his new child.
