Heartland Season 17: Release Date Prediction, Renewal Update & More!
Heartland Season 17 Release: The Canadian family comedy-drama television series hasn’t been renewed yet.
- Heartland premiered in Canada on CBC on October 14, 2007.
- Heartland Season 16 is currently airing on CBC.
Heartland is a well-known Canadian family comedy-drama television series based on Lauren Brooke’s Heartland book series. The show centres on Amy Fleming and her older sister Louise “Lou” Fleming, as they live on the Heartland family ranch in Alberta with their father, Tim Fleming, their widowed grandfather Jack Bartlett, and hired farmhand Ty Borden.
The series premiered in Canada on CBC on October 14, 2007. The show currently has 16 seasons, each with 10 to 18 episodes. With Season 16 airing on CBC, fans are speculating if the show gets a renewal for more seasons.
While it is a little early to start pondering about Heartland Season 17. However, there is little doubt the show will be renewed for yet another season, considering the exponential growth in its popularity in recent years.
So, when will Heartland Season 17 premiere? What the upcoming season has in store? Who is the cast? Here’s what we know.
Heartland Season 17 Renewal Status
Heartland‘s popularity has soared over the past few seasons. With the airing of its 139th episode on March 29, 2015, it surpassed Street Legal as the longest-running one-hour scripted drama in Canadian television history.
Heartland was the 5th most-streamed TV series in the United States in 2021. The show pounded an astonishing watch time of 29.5 billion minutes, which is way more than Netflix’s most popular series like Lucifer (18.3 billion minutes) and Squid Game (16.4 billion minutes).
One of the prime reasons for this huge growth in viewership is that Heartland is a family show. It can be enjoyed by the whole family without the worry of vulgar language, nudity, or violence.
Considering the huge popularity, it’s highly likely that we will get a new season of Heartland. As on Oct 29, 2022, Heartland Season 17 has not been officially renewed yet. The previous two seasons of Heartland were renewed in June. So, we anticipate the next announcement to be made around this time in 2023.
Heartland Season 17 Release Date
Heartland Season 17 has not been officially renewed by CBC. However, given the success of the past seasons, we have a lot of hope. Therefore, it is possible that the creators will bring season 17.
If everything goes as planned, it might be released as soon as fall 2023! Heartland is currently airing its 16th season. Therefore, CBC has not provided any information regarding season 17 since the preceding season is still unfinished. They have not renewed the series for another season as of yet.
Both seasons 15 and 16 of the show were announced in June and released in October. So, our best bet for the season 17 release would be October 2023.
How many episodes will be there in Heartland Season 17?
Earlier there used to be 18 episodes per season. However, the channel reduced the episode count to 10 per season for seasons 13 to 15. Amidst the growing popularity and demand for more content, CBC extended the latest season (season 16) with five more episodes.
The show’s parent channel CBC seems to be receptive to fans’ pleas for more content, having recently extended the latest season with five more episodes.
Heartland Season 17 Plot
With Season 16 still airing, it’s difficult to predict what stories will be featured in Season 17. Whatever the new season brings, one thing is certain: the beloved family drama will be full of heartwarming moments and emotional storylines.
One possible plotline involves Lyndy becoming an increasingly important character as Amy’s horse training assistant. We will see Lyndy growing up, handling horses and having fun and adventures with her buddies.
Season 17 is expected to address several relationships. Tim and Jessica may step onto the next stage of their marriage. Lou and Peter might get remarried and there could be romance developing between Katie and Logan.
Heartland Season 17 Cast
If season 17 is announced, most of our favourite characters will be back to entertain you, including:
- Amber Marshall as Amy Fleming
- Ruby and Emanuella Spencer as Lyndy Fleming
- Michelle Morgan as Lou Fleming Morris
- Gabriel Hogan as Peter Morris
- Shaun Johnston as Jack Bartlett
- Jessica Steen as Lisa Stillman

Drew Davies playing Logan and Shawn Roberts playing Sam Langston are getting more screen space in the 16th season. We may see more of them in the next season.
Jessica Amlee’s (Mallory) and Jake Church’s (Jake) return this season has surprised many fans. It would be interesting to see if we will get to see more of them in the next season.
Alisha Newton (Georgie Fleming-Morris) hasn’t featured in the new season yet. So, her presence is still questionable for the next season. Robert Cormier (Finn) won’t be returning as he recently passed away due to injuries.
