Heartland is a Canadian family drama series based on the book series of the same name by Lauren Brooke. It revolves around a family that owns a ranch called ‘Heartland’ in Alberta, Canada. The joys and challenges that they go through as family brings them closer. Created by Murray Shostak, the series first premiered on October 14, 2007, on CBC. It is one of the longest-running drama series in Canadian television history.
Heartland season 14 released on January 10, 2021, on CBC, and concluded on March 21, 2021. The fourteenth season consists of ten episodes. As for the fifteenth season of the series, here is all that we know:
- An official announcement confirming the renewal or cancellation of season 15 is yet to be made.
- Going by the show’s steady performance and the strong fanbase, no one would be surprised if it comes back for its fifteenth run.
- The book series that the show is based on comprises 26 books, but the writers of the show have taken the storylines beyond the original source material and have even made some changes. There are a lot of possibilities to where the fifteenth season can take the narrative.
- Since 2007, a new season has been arriving every year, except for seasons 12 and 13, that released in 2019, in January and September. However, season 14 landed almost 14 months after season 13 finished airing. If we take into consideration the possible delays caused due to the ongoing pandemic, it means that we may only get a new season in 2022.
- Therefore, if the show is renewed soon and the filming begins by Summer 2021, fans can expect Heartland season 15 to release sometime in early 2022.
If the show returns for season 15, most of the principal cast members can be expected to reprise their roles. This includes Amber Marshall (Amy Fleming), Shaun Johnston (Jackson “Jack” Bartlett), Michelle Morgan (Samantha Louise “Lou” Fleming Morris), and Alisha Newton (Georgina “Georgie” Fleming Morris). Ruby and Emmanuella Spencer play Lyndy Marion Borden, and the child actors are likely to return to portray the character. We may also see Greg Lawson (Clinton “Clint” Riley), Gabriel Hogan (Peter Walter Morris), Kevin McGarry (Mitch), Ava Tran (Parker), and Adrian Spencer (Cooper Hues).
One of the mainstays, Graham Wardle (Tyler “Ty” Borden), will not be returning if the series is renewed. Wardle decided to exit the show because he felt it was time to look for fresher professional opportunities. Therefore, his character Ty dies in the early episodes of season 14. Although it has been reported that Chris Potter (Timothy “Tim” Fleming) won’t be returning for season 15, there is no evidence to corroborate the same. Apart from the above-mentioned cast members, we may see some fresh faces if the series is renewed for another round.
In the final episode of season 14, Amy revives the jumping course that Ty had made for her. She also takes on the task of helping Cooper with a difficult horse and his horse therapy center. Cooper had almost given up on his dreams about the horse therapy center when Parker also gets involved and helps save the day. Lou and Mitch decide to part ways when they realize that they both want different things from their relationship. Moreover, Peter also admits that he still has feelings for Lou. Things seem to start aligning for Georgie, who wants to participate in the Olympics as a trick rider. Her performance at the jumping event catches the eye of an observer from Equestrian Canada, who askes her to get in touch with him.
If the series is given the go-ahead for season 15, we will see how Ty’s death continues to affect the family. We are yet to learn whether things work out between Peter and Lou and if Georgie gets selected for the Olympics. We may also see what is next for Amy and what happens to Cooper’s horse therapy center.
