Just about a month after Lori Loughlin was dropped from her Hallmark show "When Calls the Heart," the channel announced the series has been renewed for a seventh season.
Actress Erin Krakow, who stars on the show as lead Elizabeth Thatcher, gave fans the news in an Instagram video Saturday. She said the new season will air next year.
"We can’t wait to get back to Hope Valley," Krakow said.
The Hallmark Channel let Loughlin go from the production last month after she was charged in the college admissions scandal. She is accused of bribing her kids' ways into a top college, University of Southern California.
“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations. We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin," the network said in a statement.
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Gianulli, did not to take a plea deal in the case and have not commented publicly about the case.
Loughlin was also dropped from the Netflix show "Fuller House." She plays Aunt Becky on the series, a role she played on the show's initial run as "Full House" as well.
