Heartland Season 13 Filming Begins

Although we still have a ways to go before we will be able to watch Heartland season 13, the production of the new season has begun. Which means that the filming process of the thirteenth season of Heartland has started. And that over the next few months we can expect to see a ton of behind the scenes (BHS) footage from both Heartland’s social media accounts and those belonging to the show’s actors. So, in honor of the beginning of production for Heartland season 13, let’s look at some of the things that have already been shared. And what we can deduct from them.

Amber and Shaun back at work

It all started with Amber Marshall, who plays Amy on the show, and Shaun Johnston aka Grandpa Jack himself sharing some BHS snaps of the Heartland set. First, Amber gave us a glimpse of the Heartland Ranch House.

Which was quickly followed by Shaun sharing a picture of saddle sitting in the Heartland barn, cleverly captioning the photo “Back in the saddle again..”.

And the official Heartland Twitter account posting this video of Alisha Newton, who’s playing Georgie on the show, welcoming us to season 13 of Heartland!

What does this mean? Well, it reassures us that all of our favorite characters will be present for the 10-episode 13th season of the show. Including Amber Marshall, Shaun Johnston, and Alisha Newton. As well as Chris Potter, who plays Tim on the series, Jessica Steen who portrays Jack’s wife Lisa, Lucian-River Mirage, who has taken up the role of the Bartlett-Fleming-Borden-Morris clan’s newest member Luke, and Emmanuella and Ruby Spencer who plays Amy and Ty’s daughter Lyndy. But that’s not all! Because Gabriel Hogan, who plays Peter on the series, shared this fun picture of the Heartland cast during the filming of one of the show’s previous seasons. And in the image’s caption, the Peter Morris portrayer let us know that he’s also heading back to Alberta for Heartland season 13.

And we have no doubt that other series regulars will also soon make an appearance in the behind the scenes pics from the Heartland season 13 set. Because the thirteenth season of Heartland wouldn’t be complete without characters like Lou, played by Michelle Morgan, Mitch, portrayed by Kevin McGarry and Wyatt played by Dempsey Bryk. Especially, after where season 12 left us when it comes to fan-favorite couples Lou and Mitch and Georgie and Wyatt.

Will Ty be in Heartland season 13?

But, what about Ty, you ask? Will Graham Wardle be back for Heartland season 13? And therefore will Ty be a part of the upcoming season? And the answer is a resounding yes. Ty will definitely be back at Heartland raising Lyndy and fostering Luke with Amy. Because, as you can see from the video below of Amber and Graham welcoming the fans to Heartland season 13, on Tuesday Graham was back at work filming the new season of Heartland in their Calgary studio.

And even horses such as Amy’s horse Spartan, Georgie’s jumping buddy Phoenix and Luke’s favorite Buddy will be back for season 13 of Heartland. Because what would Heartland be without the show’s four-legged stars?

What do we know about the Heartland season 13 filming process?

Finally, thanks to some sneaky behind the scenes pictures from the Heartland season 13 set, we also know who’s directing the first two episodes of Heartland season 13. As well as who penned the second episode of the upcoming season. And what’s the title of that episode. Because the official Heartland Twitter account shared this picture of a slate used for the first of ten episodes of Heartland season 13. Which revealed that the longtime Heartland editor Ken Filewych is stepping into director’s role for the first episode.

While Gabriel Hogan revealed tidbits on episode 2 by sharing a snap of the script for this episode. And the picture let us know that the episode will be called “Wild One” and was written by the seasoned Heartland writer Mark Haroun. Who in the past has written such episodes as Heartland season 11 episode 11 titled “Somewhere in Between” as well as Heartland season 10 episode 17 titled “Dreamer”, and episode 14 titled “Written in the Stars” among others.

And I will end this article with a video, shared by Heartland’s official Facebook account, of Jessica, Shaun and Chris having fun on the set of Heartland season 13, welcoming fans to the new season, and thanking them for watching the show.

So, are you excited that Heartland season 13 filming has begun? I know I am. And, despite us having to wait a long time until we will be able to see season 13 play out on CBC, the fact that the cast and crew of Heartland are back at work and working hard to create this new season gives me comfort that the season is in the works. And gets me excited for what’s to come. Who’s with me?


  1. Hi from the UK I and a friend cannot was it for series 13 to arrive, we love Heartland, we are like junkies waiting for our next fix of Heartland it is such a beautiful series, great cast and fabulous scenery, now I have the urge to travel to Canada.


  2. I’ve watched this series 3 times,just can’t seem to let go of it,it gladdens my heart in so many ways.I feel like I’m with family and friends when I see it.

    The love,forgiveness and humility of this group is ENCHANTING!

  3. I love Heartland, I watch it over and over on Netflix. I would like to see Lou and Peter back together, also for Lou to chill out a little.

  4. I just love Heartland. I have watched episodes over and over like many of your other fans. I am so excited to be watching season 11 right now. It has been wonderful and never disappoints. I am so excited to see how things develop with Luke and I also want to see what will happen with Mitch and Mia, as I do not see them as a good fit as a couple. I also think Peter would be great with Jen. I was so sad that Georgie missed her event so she could qualify to go to the Olympics, but I am glad she is sticking around. Thanks for making such a great tv series!

  5. Heartland comes back September 22nd, 2019 in Canada. Here is my prediction for season 13. I see Ty and Amy Balancing life with a toddler and Luke that will be tricky if that wasn’t enough add in a small place the loft with four people living in so I think Amy and Ty will buy a ranch and keep their land for the wild horses. But I bet some challenges will arise with Luke and the birth mother and her wanting Luke Back but Ty and Amy think they can give Luke a better life and it turns into a battle. I think some event will happen this season. I also believe that Ty and Amy will run into some problems with their up business while trying to raise two kids and will cause some tension will arise between Ty and Amy.

  6. In season 13 would like ty and Amy to adopt Luke, build them a home on the land jack gave them. Lou and Mitch need to get married and build them a place by the dude ranch jack gave Lou. Still like the family eating together .

  7. When will season 13 be on in USA ? It is on the UP that we get in Oklahoma.
    My husband and I love Heartland and we even record reruns and what them over and over. All of you are great actors ! So realistic. Thank you so much for continuing the series. It is AWESOME ! Our favorite show. It is a good clean show and we LOVE the scenery and horses. We have been to Cana several times and it is a beautiful country. My bucket list has Calgary on it for sure ! Would love to be able to see where the filming is done and meet some of our favorite actors.
    Again, thank you for keeping the series going and bringing good clean show into our living room. Can wait for new series.

    1. I’ll assume you meant season 12, and if so season 12 will begin streaming on UP Faith & Family on July 25th, with it airing on UPTV this fall. Season 13 will air in Canada on CBC most likely this winter and will be available to US viewers the fallowing spring/summer.

    1. According to Up Faith & Family season 12 will premiere on their channel this July.

  8. Love Heartland, cast and crew. Can’t wait to see it. Heartland is the best show ever on tv. Heartlander for life.

  9. Love Heartland. Watch some episodes daily. Just hope Graham is in all episodes. Not the same without him.

    1. It’s definitely not the same. And although I can’t promise that he will be in all episodes, I’d imagine he will be in most of them. After all Ty and Amy will be fostering Luke in season 13 and Ty is the one who has a strong bond with Luke.

  10. I’m with you for sure. Still waiting to see season 12 in U.S. A lot to look forward to.
