Thirty-one new holiday movies will air on Hallmark this year. But any fans holding out hope that the network might revive its tradition of airing a special episode of When Calls the Heart on Christmas Day will be disappointed. Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas announcement didn’t include any mention of When Calls the Heart. The network did not respond to Showbiz Cheat Sheet’s inquiry about plans for a Christmas special. 

The last When Calls the Heart Christmas special aired in December 2019. In 2020, there was a repeat of the previous year’s special, Home for Christmas. In 2021, the show’s cast hosted the channel’s Christmas Day programming, which featured an early look at the upcoming season.

The When Calls the Heart spinoff shifted to a new network in 2021, but since the two-part When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas aired, there’s been no word on the show’s status.

One When Calls the Heart star who will be part of this year’s Countdown to Christmas is Jack Wagner. He’ll appear in A Big Fat Family Christmas. It’s about a photojournalist named Liv who lands her dream assignment: shooting the Chang family’s annual holiday party. But she neglects to reveal that the Changs are her family, which becomes an issue as she begins growing closer to Henry, the coworker covering the story with her. It airs December 2.

Hallmark Channel has unveiled its 2022 Countdown to Christmas lineup, and unfortunately for Hearties, it doesn’t look like there are plans for a When Calls the Heart Christmas special this year.
