Time keeps on ticking away, doesn't it?
Although we can't officially start the countdown to when Heartland's Season 6 premiere airs, I can tell you that the first two episodes have now been filmed, and director Steve Scaini is now working with editor Ken Filewych to get the episodes closer to completion so they can be brought to you in a little over three months time. Read on!
I still don't have the exact date when CBC is going to start season 6, but it's looking more and more like it will be in late September, and that means there is only one thing between now and then - SUMMER! And that's not a bad obstacle to have, is it?
You all seem to be enjoying the Monday time killers and I have a pile of new and different puzzles and fun stuff to be presented for you to tackle every Monday over the next three months. And I note that many of you thought this last one was too easy. Well I can fix that! :)
And for true Heartland fans there is another great time killer, and that is when a repeat performance of an episode is aired Sunday evenings on CBC. Now that we know there are only a maximum of three more hockey games to this NHL season, I can confirm that Heartland will not preempted for a hockey game for a long time, so then why not have a rerun in three days time?
That's exactly what is going to happen, and this time it is going to be an episode from Season 5. Episode 507 - "Over the Rise" will be shown across Canada at 7:00pm (7:30pm in Newfoundland!) and instead of rehashing old material, I'll instead link you to the blog post from Thursday, November 10, which went into detail on that episode and had six photos from it!
The photo at the top of this post is also from that episode: the one where Tim takes his three kids on an overnight trail ride where something --as it always seems to with Tim-- goes awry.
The following four photos are from that episode as well and show Caleb training to be a bull rider. I posted them on Facebook back in November but thought I'd put them up here for those of you who have not yet seen 'em.
Next week I will have some details about a cast appearance in High River on Saturday June 16, as the Alberta town that plays Hudson in Heartland celebrates its connection to the series.
And of course there will be more news, information and hints every day from set for those of you who are following production on Twitter - and it's not posted anywhere else, so if you aren't following Heartland on Twitter, head on over!
We're less than two weeks from the start of summer, which officially begins on June 20, and I for one can't wait! In the meanwhile and all through this upcoming summer I'll try to ease the burden of waiting for Heartland with these Thursday and Monday posts. I hope you enjoy them, and I hope you can tune into CBC Television on Sunday and also enjoy the repeat broadcast of "Over the Rise."
