*WARNING: Spoilers ahead for season 14*
Season 14 of Heartland has been a heartbreaking one following the unexpected departure of a key character.
The episode 1 departure has hung over the season like a dark shadow but after episode 10 came to an end on March 21st, it looks like those demons have finally been put to rest.
However, now all 10 episodes have aired, fans have been left asking if Heartland will return to CBC for season 15.
HEARTLAND SEASON 14 ON CBC
Heartland returned to CBC for its long-awaited 14th season on January 10th, 2021.
After being absent from our screens in 2020, the much-loved series wasted no time in breaking fans’ hearts as Ty Borden (Graham Wardle), one of the show’s longest-serving characters, unexpectedly died in the season’s opening moments.
Since then, Amy (Amber Marshall) has been forced to come to terms with Ty’s unexpected passing and find a way to continue without her late husband.
In episode 10, it looks as if she’s finally ready to move on as she restores the practice jumping course that Ty had built years earlier.
