Hearties who are holding out hope that Lori Loughlin could return to When Calls The Heart possibly have some good news. What is the latest information on the actress who played Abigail Spencer?

Here is what we know now.

Lori Loughlin Given Special Permission

Ever since Lori Loughlin lost her When Calls The Heart job due to the College Admissions Scandal, Hearties have been hoping that the Full House actress would eventually return.

Earlier this week, it seems that the actress who portrays Abigail Stanton on WCTH is one step closer to returning. According to the San Jose Mercury News, Loughlin was granted “expedited” permission to travel out of the county. Not just any country. She is allowed to go to Canada.

Based on the information given, the Boston-based judge granted her a single week to do her work. “Ms. Loughlin anticipates she will be traveling for about one week.” This is because she is “being offered a filming production project.”

This work will take place sometime in September, or in October. Due to Canada’s new Covid policy, Lori has to make sure she has been fully vaccinated. There is no longer a two-week quarantine requirement.

Although one week doesn’t seem like a lot, back in previous years, when Lori was a regular on the show, she often worked shorter periods. She filmed all of her scenes in a few weeks to be able to get back home to her family.

When Calls The Heart Is Filming Now

One of the reasons that Hearties are excited about Lori Loughlin’s special permission to go to Canada is that When Calls The Heart films in the Vancouver area. Could Lori be headed there?

Hallmark films a majority of their movies in Canada, and most in the Vancouver area. Until fans know where Lori is headed, they cannot pinpoint what project she is working on. But, most people believe she will return to Hope Valley.

Most of all, her When Calls The Heart co-stars want her back. Erin has made many posts dedicated to Lori. She has also been very vocal about Loughlin returning to the series.

Now, they all could be waiting for Lori. The cast, including Erin Krakow, has been working on Season 9 since July. Due to Covid, they have been practicing a lot of social distancing, wearing masks when not on camera, and filming outside as much as possible.

Moreover, in WCTH Season 9, the love triangle is resolved. Elizabeth (Krakow) picked Lucas (Chris McNally). In this upcoming season, Hearties expect to see the newly formed couple spending more time together.

Could There Be Other Lori Loughlin Projects?

Although we are assuming that Lori Loughlin would be returning to Canada to film When Calls The Heart, it is always possible that Loughlin could be filming a Christmas movie.

However, she would not be starring, as a Hallmark Christmas movie filming would last three weeks.

Next, there is always the possibility that Lori would participate in a project with GAC, the new family-friendly network helmed by former Hallmark CEO, Bill Abbott.

This is a developing story, so stay tuned for the latest news on Lori Loughlin’s newest project.
