Heartland Season 15 has officially started filming in Alberta
Production on the new season began this past Monday
On Monday, June 7, it was announced that production had started on the 15th Season of Heartland. I hope you are all as excited as I am to hear this news. I know that a lof of you already know but, for those of you who don't follow #HLinProd on social media, you may be hearing this for the first time today. So... surprise! As for who has been on set this week, I can tell you that several cast members, including Amber Marshall, Michelle Morgan, Chris Potter and Kerry James have all been working this week.
Now that Heartland is filming its 15th season, it is still currently the longest-running one-hour family drama in Canadian television history. Here's a milestone you shouldn't forget; the beginning of the 15th season will mark the 225th episode! There aren't many series out there can say they have done as much world-building and character development as Heartland has over the years.
The show's first season premiered on October 14, 2007, with an episode titled, "Coming Home". You can watch it for free on CBC Gem. And, in fact, you can watch all of the currently available episodes of Heartland up to season 14 there as well.
When asked about the new season going into production, Showrunner, Lead Writer and Executive Producer Heather Conkie said, "Everyone involved is absolutely thrilled to start shooting the 15th season of Heartland. We are all so proud to be reaching the milestone of 225 episodes, and I'm especially looking forward to sharing story lines that see Amy moving forward and embracing the future."
As you may already know, the show is filmed in Alberta, Canada and will continue in the Calgary, High River, Millarville, and Longview areas for season 15.

And, in case you missed it, some of the cast have already been posting about their return to set this week, and I can tell they are excited to be back! (Wouldn't you?) Just take a look at some of their posts on Instagram.
That's all for today. Be sure to come back next week for more info on what's happening with production and, if I can, I'll get you some more photos!
