Elizabeth Thatcher, a young school teacher from a wealthy Eastern family, migrates from the big city to teach school in a small coal mining town in the west.
In March 2019, Lori Loughlin (Abigail Stanton) was indicted for bribing admissions officials so her children could be admitted to the University of Southern California. Hallmark announced on March 14, 2019 it was no longer working with Loughlin and had stopped development of any productions involving her. This caused a delay for When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Mountie (2019), which had been slated to air on 3/17/19 as Hallmark assessed what to do with the role. Loughlin, a U.S. resident, was specifically allowed by the Judge to keep her passport to travel to Canada to continue working with Hallmark on this show, but Hallmark terminated her. The agreement with the Judge expires in December after which Loughlin will have to surrender her passport. However, there is no public word on whether that has been modified since Hallmark took action.
In April 2019, the federal government added money laundering charges after Loughlin and her husband did not plead guilty to the original charge after others charged in the case took did so. In order to edit out appearances of Loughlin's character Abigail, Hallmark did considerable editing for the remainder of Season 6, which ended up reducing the show count by one. It has not been determined if the character will be recast or written out.
The town water tank has no pipes leading to it, which may explain why Abigail's Cafe requires a hand pump in the kitchen. Additionally, there are many references to telegrams coming into or sent from the town, and there are electric lights everywhere, yet there are no telegraph poles anywhere in the town.
