Heartland Renewed For Season 18 at CBC

Amy Fleming’s saga is not coming to an end at CBC anytime soon! The network has renewed ‘Heartland‘ for the eighteenth season. The filming of the installment will commence in Calgary, Alberta, on May 14. Heather Conkie, Mark Haroun, Ken Craw, Pamela Pinch, and Bonnie Fairweather are writing the season based on Lauren Brooke’s novel series of the same name.

The seventeenth season finale features Shane and Chloe’s wedding, Heartland Beef’s fate, and Amy and Nathan’s evolving relationship. Despite a fiery mishap at the gazebo and tensions between Shane and Chloe, the couple reconciles, exchanging vows in a heartfelt ceremony at Amy’s suggested spot. Meanwhile, Nathan seeks forgiveness from Amy for his earlier remarks, demonstrating his commitment to her and Powder, the traumatized horse. Amidst the turmoil, the Heartland family faces challenges with Garland Foods, culminating in Lou’s bold decision to walk away from a disrespectful partnership. Embracing newfound courage, Katie conquers her fears by dirt biking, symbolizing her growth and strengthening her bond with Lou.

In the show’s upcoming season, the viewers can anticipate a continuation of the heartfelt drama and family dynamics that have defined the series. With Shane and Chloe’s wedding behind them, new challenges will likely emerge for the Heartland clan, particularly as they navigate the aftermath of Lou’s bold decision to sever ties with Garland Foods. As Heartland Beef charts a new course, tensions may rise but the resilient family spirit is expected to prevail as they rally together to overcome obstacles.

As the installment progresses, Amy and Nathan’s relationship is poised to deepen further, with the latter’s commitment to Amy and her work with horses becoming increasingly evident. Meanwhile, Katie’s journey of self-discovery and newfound courage will possibly unfold, bringing her closer to Lou and revealing further depths of their mother-daughter relationship. Each character may face their own trials and triumphs as season 18 promises to deliver captivating storytelling, heartfelt moments, and the enduring spirit of the Heartland Ranch.

While the official cast of ‘Heartland’ season 18 is yet to be announced, it is highly anticipated that familiar faces will return to the beloved series. The viewers can expect Amber Marshall to return as Amy, alongside Michelle Morgan as Lou for the series to expand the saga of the Fleming sisters. Barring any unforeseen changes, the cast will likely include Ruby and Emanuella Spencer as Lyndy Marion Borden, Chris Potter as Tim Fleming, Gabriel Hogan as Peter Morris, Michelle Nolden as Jessica Cook, and Kerry James as Caleb Odell. Moreover, Shaun Johnston as Jack Bartlett, Baye McPherson as Katie Fleming Morris, Ava Tran as Parker Yang, and Jessica Steen as Lisa Stillman are also expected to return.

Once more, Calgary, known for hosting the shooting of projects such as ‘The Last of Us‘ and ‘My Life with the Walter Boys,’ will provide the scenic backdrop for the show’s upcoming season.
