Sunday nights on Hallmark Channel is family night when season five of beloved series When Calls the Heart returns Sunday, February 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, immediately followed by the premiere of new docuseries Meet the Peetes at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The addition of Meet the Peetes, which follows the lives of Holly Robinson Peete, Rodney Peete and their multigenerational family along with the upcoming January launch of the sitcom Full House, further solidifies the network’s position as the family-friendly destination on television.
Candace Cameron Bure, Lori Loughlin and Jodie Sweetin, stars from Crown Media Family Networks hit movies and series, started their careers on Full House and now fans can watch every episode from the beginning on Hallmark Channel.
In season five of When Calls the Heart, the network’s longest-running primetime series, Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) anxiously awaits news of Jack (Daniel Lissing), who has returned to the Northern Territories, while she focuses on teaching her students and dreams of the day when Jack comes home safely and they can plan their wedding.
Meanwhile, she gets an unexpected visit from her sister Julie (Charlotte Hegele), who reveals to Elizabeth the surprising career path she’s decided to take.
Abigail (Lori Loughlin) is faced with a new crisis as mayor of Hope Valley when looming financial troubles for the town also impact Lee’s (Kavan Smith) operations at the mill. Ever the dedicated wife to Lee, Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) keeps busy at Dottie’s (Erica Carroll) dress shop as she works to make Hope Valley more fashionable.
In Meet the Peetes, audiences will see Holly and Rodney’s hectic lives as they attempt to balance raising four kids, including one with autism, running their HollyRod charity and spending time with Holly’s 81-year-old mother Dolores, who has been living with the Peete family since her retirement from her career as a talent manager.
Their daughter Ryan is in college at New York University while RJ, their son with autism, is working for the Los Angeles Dodgers and decides he’s ready to leave the family nest.
On top of that, Holly’s mother Dolores announces she’s ready to move out too – the Peetes are in a period of change that will continue to unfold in Meet the Peetes, only on Hallmark Channel.
