Heartland Season 13 Production Begins!

Posted on May 9, 2019

Things just got real at the Heartland production! As many of you know, Season 13 production began on Monday, May 6, starting with episode 1301. Insider Info: 1301 is titled "Snakes and Ladders". You heard it here first! It was written by Heather Conkie, who has written and executive produced so many episodes of Heartland that it's hard to count. 1301 is directed by Ken Filewych. Ken has also been working on Heartland for a long time as an editor and occasionally directing and episode. This duo kicking off the season can only spell good things for the story of the Bartlett/Fleming/Borden family, their extended family, and their friends in the next chapter of their story!

Some of you have also asked about Jarret Craig, who's name can be seen on the slate in the image from this tweet we shared earlier this week. 


Jarrett is a camera operator and Director of Photography who has worked on A LOT of Heartland episodes over the years.  You have seen his work if you are a fan of the series as he's responsible for the great visuals you have come to know and expect from the series. You should definitely follow him on Instagram.

Finally, there has definitely been a lot of chatter online about Heartland starting up Season 13 production from the bunches of people involved.  Here are some of the posts you may have missed if you don't follow Heartland news EVERYWHERE.  Which you really should.


The happy Borden family! #LoveThisKid #HLinProd
