The CBC original family drama Heartland has begun filming its 14th season in Alberta, Canada this week.
Based on the best-selling books by Lauren Brooke, the series follows life on the iconic Heartland ranch as Amy Fleming (Amber Marshall) and her family deal with the challenges of running a horse ranch that has been in their family for six generations. Due to COVID-19, Heartland’s cast and crew are returning to set under different circumstances from previous seasons. The fourteenth season of the series will premiere in winter 2021 on CBC and the free CBC Gem streaming service.
Heartland is produced by Dynamo Films and SEVEN24 Films in association with CBC, with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund, Government of Alberta, the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit. Entertainment One is the international distributor of the series.
Executive Producer Tom Cox said: “We’re grateful to be starting production of season 14. We’ve spent several months developing enhanced health protocols and production practices that will help make filming safe for our cast and crew while ensuring that our new episodes are as beautiful and engaging as ever.”
