Lori Loughlin’s Hallmark series ‘When Calls the Heart’ to return without her on May 5

Lori Loughlin’s legal woes are far from over, but the Hallmark Channel show she previously starred in, “When Calls the Heart,” is moving on without her.

George Zaralidis, director of publicity for “When Calls the Heart” production company Crown Media, confirmed to USA TODAY that the Season 6 would resume with two new episodes on May 5 and 6, both airing at 8 p.m. EDT/PDT.

“When Calls the Heart” star Erin Krakow announced the news of the show’s return in a three-minute clip that aired on the Hallmark Channel Wednesday, which also featured a sneak peek of the new series.

“We can’t wait to welcome you back to Hope Valley and share more all-new stories with you,” Krakow said in the clip.

The show’s happy news arrived the same day that Lori Loughlin was indicted by a federal grand jury in Boston on an additional charge of conspiring to commit money laundering in connection with a scheme to facilitate their children’s admission to selective colleges by using bribery and cheating on college entrance exams.

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, had previously been charged along with nearly three-dozen parents with mail fraud as part of the wide-ranging college admissions cheating scandal.
