‘When Calls the Heart’ renewed at Hallmark Channel after Lori Loughlin firing

Lori Loughlin isn’t necessary for “When Calls the Heart” to go on.

The show was renewed for a seventh season just days after it was revealed Loughlin, 54, would be edited out of future episodes of the Hallmark Channel series following her allegations in the college admissions scandal.

“When Calls the Heart” star Erin Krakow announced the news via Instagram.

The Hallmark Channel cut ties with Loughlin following her March arrest, saying in a statement, “We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations. We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin, including ‘Garage Sale Mysteries,’ an independent third-party production.”
