Is Jack Coming Back on 'When Calls the Heart'? Actor Daniel Lissing Explains His Departure

By Allison Cacich

Hallmark Channel’s When Calls the Heart is now in it’s sixth season, though fans are missing former cast member Daniel Lissing, who played Jack Thornton on the series since its premiere in 2014.

Viewers were shocked by the actor’s departure last April, but in the months since, we’ve gotten some answers relating to both Daniel’s exit and the future of the show. Scroll down for more details about Jack’s tragic ending and how When Calls the Heart plans to soldier on without him.

Is Jack coming back to When Calls the Heart?

Given that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer died during the Season 5 finale, we’d say there’s a 100% chance fans won’t be seeing him again, unless he shows up in ghost form. 

After receiving a new Mountie assignment, Jack was killed off-screen, leaving behind his new wife, Elizabeth (Erin Krakow), and their unborn child. Fellow star Lori Loughlin revealed that the decision to kill Jack weighed heavily on the writers.
