Any Heartland news is good Heartland news, and this time around we have some big Heartland news to share with you. No, I’m not talking about Heartland being renewed for season 13 or premiering this year. Truth be told it’s a bit too early for any renewal news. However, the news is related to the Heartland season 12 premiere date. Because we finally have the exact date for when the twelfth season of Heartland will launch. Ready for it? Here we go!

Heartland season 12 premiere date

So without further ado, we’re happy to report that the Heartland season 12 premiere date is Sunday, January 6, 2019. That’s right, Heartland will premiere on the very first Sunday of next year and will air on CBC at 7 pm as per usual.

The announcement was made on the weekly Heartland blog, which officially started the Heartland season 12 premiere date countdown. 63 days as of today, and counting!

About Heartland season 12

Although we are still 2 months away from the Heartland season 12 premiere date, and no new promos have been released for the upcoming twelfth season of the show, there are a few tidbits that we know about the new Heartland season.

We do know that most of your favorite characters will be back. From Amy, Ty, Jack, Lou, Tim and Georgie to Lisa, Mitch, Jade, Caleb, Wyatt, Jen and more, all actors playing these characters have shown up in behind-the-scenes photos and tweets shared by the Heartland official social media accounts. Plus there will be new characters for us to get to know this season since Heartland is no stranger to fun new guest stars for the main cast to share the screen with.

We also know that there will be new non-human actors gracing our screens once Heartland season 12 does launch. Meaning that Amy, as well as Georgie and Ty, will be working with and healing new horses. Which is great news for everyone who is like us and whose favorite storylines include Amy trying to figure out what’s wrong with her latest client horse. And there might even be new animal-related storylines for the other main characters as well. For example, Lou having to deal with a hoard of sheep… That sounds like an entertaining and a very Heartland-like storyline, don’t you think?

And last but not least we hear that this new Heartland season will feature some new, never before seen locations. Like a truck stop, for example. Not sure what Amy and Ty are doing at a truck stop, all dressed up no less. But we will definitely find out once the season 12 finale rolls around sometime next spring. But first, make sure to tune in on January 6 to see the first of the eleven Heartland season 12 episodes!

Please leave a comment below and let us know how excited you are to finally know the Heartland season 12 premiere date! And tell us how you will be celebrating the day on the 6th of January! A watch-party maybe? We will definitely be having one!
