Can Hallmark's 'When Calls the Heart' Survive Without Lori Loughlin?

By Allison Cacich

This week, the news has been dominated by a college admissions bribery scandal that saw 50 people — including prominent businessmen and Hollywood actresses — arrested for their roles in the scheme. Among those indicted is Lori Loughlin, best known for playing Aunt Becky on Full House and for her work on Hallmark Channel’s When Calls the Heart.

Ever since the bombshell court documents were released on March 12 detailing the accused’s’ alleged crimes, fans have wondered what will happen to When Calls the Heart without Lori at the helm. 

Here’s what we know about Lori’s future with the show and Hallmark’s response to the allegations.

Lori Loughlin was officially fired from When Calls the Heart.

Crown Media, the parent company of Hallmark, announced in a statement on Thursday, March 14, that they are cutting all ties with the 54-year-old, which includes her ongoing role in the film series Garage Sale Mystery.
