Canadian family drama Heartland is returning for a new season for viewers in the UK, and hopefully the usually feel-good drama will be less heart-rending than its last season.


The drama (available in the UK on Netflix) kicked off season 14 with a heartrending surprise exit from the Heartland cast - one which dealt a devastating blow to the Alberta family ranch.

Fan-favourite and original character Ty Borden died of a blood clot in the season's first episode, with this meaning the departure of actor Graham Wardle following 14 years on the show.

"I felt in my heart it was time to move in a new direction," Wardle told The Canadian Press.

"I now host the Time Has Come podcast, and there will be a future episode coming out where I plan to share much more about my decision and my appreciation for the 14 years I've spent on Heartland," he said.

What is Heartland about?

Heartland has been on our screens since the season 1 premiere back in 2007. The long-running show focuses on the Fleming family, specifically lead character Amy Fleming (played by Amber Marshall), a horse whisperer.

At the start of the series, Amy and her older sister Lou are living on their family's Alberta ranch (known as "Heartland") with their widowed grandfather and their father, after their mother Marion dies in a car crash.

As the series goes on, we follow both young women, including Amy's friendship and later relationship with Ty Borden (with whom she has a child).
