We’re Joust Counting Down to Oct 2.

Posted on Jul 7, 2016

Hello Heartlanders. Production is once again up and running, as the 9-day production hiatus ended this past Monday.

If you are following our daily production tweets on Heartland on CBC's Twitter page you will see that Ken Filewych and Pierre Tremblay, who are each directing their first episodes after nine seasons of exemplary work as - respectively - Editor and 1st Assistant Director, are back at it. They are directing episodes 1005 (Ken) and 1006 (Pierre) and today day 7 of 15 is being shot.

Meanwhile, in the production office Chris Potter is preparing to direct his two episodes this year, which will be episodes 1007 and 1008. He will begin yelling "Action" on set on Wednesday, July 20th, when his block begins.

Now, you know how I occasionally like to answer your questions,right? Well last Wednesday on Heartland on CBC's Facebook Page, in a weekly post I call "What's Up Wednesday?" I asked for fans to ask any questions they felt like asking and I said that the following week I would answer any that received ten or more likes. There were quite a few, and you might want to check out both those questions and my responses which went up yesterday.

And in related news, just to again knock off the four answers I write more than any other -

1) Heartland season 10 will premiere on CBC Television across Canada on Sunday, October 2 at 7:00pm (7:30pm in Newfoundland).

2) Season 9 will be released on DVD in Canada by eOne Entertainment on October 4. It can be ordered by anyone from Amazon.ca .

3) Season 7 will be added to Netflix USA in September. Seasons 8 and 9 will be added in April. Yes it has taken a while, but the wait will be worth it.

4) A new network which will begin airing season 9 in the United States beginning in September will be announced by your faithful Blog Whisperer in August. Stay tuned.

So that's joust about it. Yes, I had to reuse that amazingly cheesy pun, for the nine never-before-seen photos are all from

episode 907 / "Fearless," which was the episode that saw Caleb take up jousting.

Every week this summer you will get to see photos you have never seen before in my Thursday blog. I hope you enjoy this week's batch.

So that's all for this week, other than to happily knock seven more days off our countdown to the October 2 season 10 premiere. Let's see now, 94 minus 7 equals... 87 DAYS TO GO. Not bad, huh?

Anyway, enjoy summer(long term) and this weekend (short term); that's what I intend to do. And come back next week for more photos and news.

Until then I remain, as always, obediently yours, leaving you with that unmistakable sound (which I am sure you can imagine) of our countdown...

Tick... tick... tick...
