8 seconds ago Hallmark's When Calls The Heart has had to jump through some hoops to figure things out during Lori Loughlin's scandal, but it appears the actress' latest legal woes won't affect the show's future. Series star Erin Krakow took to social media to announce When Calls The Heart will be returning to Hallmark next year for Season 7. Erin Krakow added that When Calls The Heart will be returning from its hiatus Sunday, May 5 and Monday, May 6 for a two-night return at 8:00 p.m. ET. That much was previously known by loyal Hearties, along with the news that future episodes of Season 6 would be edited to remove Lori Loughlin's Abigail from the screen. Loughlin has been dropped by Hallmark productions entirely, so don't expect her to slink back in for Season 7. As for what will become of her character Abigail Stanton, When Calls The Heart still has yet to reveal its long-term plan for the series. Right now the options appear to be to either write Abigail out of the drama … [Read more...] about Hallmark Renews When Calls The Heart For Season 7 Amid Lori Loughlin Scandal

How is the show handling … [Read more...] about Hallmark’s When Calls The Heart Reveals Return Date, But What About Lori Loughlin?
BBC One’s Call The Midwife recently returned with a brand new season that’s set to tackle a range of thought-provoking topics. The drama, originally set in the 1950s, will approach issues such as gender identity, illegal abortions, cervical smears and prostate exams. The touching drama has never shied away from addressing difficult subjects and writer Heidi Thomas seems set to continue this in the eighth series. Speaking to the Mirror, she revealed a young woman will discover she has male genitalia and is intersex. After finally plucking up the courage to tell the nurses she’s never had a period, the woman is devastated to learn she will never bear children and her shocked fiance has no idea what to do.

x No matter how much physical harm or mental trauma they may endure, there are just certain characters on Gotham that we view as being “safe.” When it comes to the likes of Bruce Wayne, Jim Gordon, Penguin and Riddler, it’s fair to say none of those guys listed will be killed off at any point.

Not only that, but we can’t be too sure if Jeremiah won’t be the second Valeska to bite the dust, with someone we’ve yet to meet going on to become the true Joker. Taking all that into account, I was still shocked to see Penguin murder Tabitha Galavan during last night’s season premiere. Granted, her iteration of Tigress isn’t all that important to the overall Batman mythos, but she’s been a staple of the show since its sophomore year. Then again, actress Jessica Lucas had been … [Read more...] about Gotham Killed Off A Major Character During The Season 5 Premiere
