Now with 16 successful seasons, there is no doubt that Heartland (2007- ) is the most popular drama series among horse lovers today.
Heartland follows the comings and goings of the Fleming-Bartlett family, particularly its gifted horse trainer Amy Fleming.
Over the years, the show has grown a seven-figure fanbase with its heartwarming stories, great character arcs, and beautiful horses.
Season 16 returned on October 2, 2022. While the season was originally supposed to have just 10 episodes, fans were treated to an additional five for a total of 15 episodes in season 16 of Heartland.
The season did not disappoint as there were plenty of entertaining storylines.
The first episode of Heartland Season 16 premiered on CBC at 7 pm ET (7:30 pm NT) on Sunday, October 2, 2022. A new episode will be released each week at the same time.
The network announced the show’s renewal on June 1, almost exactly a year after the renewal of Heartland for Season 15.
See the season 16 trailer below:
Last season, we have seen the Fleming-Bartlett clan finally make peace with Ty’s death. Amy has dealt with his killer in person and is now ready to start a new chapter in her life.
Lou and Peter are officially together again, and it will be exciting to see how they move forward as a reunited family.
Meanwhile, Lyndy graduates from kindergarten, an emotional moment for the whole family.
Throughout the season, we see Amy’s beautiful daughter as she gets more involved with horses. There is even an exciting new horse to join the ranch that Lyndy bonds with named Theo aka Xavier.
The horse therapy center is also a highlight of Season 16, with Amy as the head of operations and Logan as a permanent assistant.
Understandably, fans were exciting fans about a new love interest for Amy. While she was not yet considering a new partner last season, she certainly became more open to the idea.
Georgie and Quinn also make an exciting return at the end of the series. After not wanting to return to show jumping after an accident, Georgie gets an exciting invitation. A renowned trainer in Brussels that specializes in jumping after an accident invites Georgie to ride with her.
Quinn even asks Georgie to marry him but Georgie says they are too young. With the support of Quinn, Georgie decides to accept the offer to train in Brussels.
Similar to previous seasons, we can expect the core cast to return in Heartland Season 16, with the exception of Ty, of course.

After CBC Gem, Up Faith & Family was the first streaming service that made Heartland Season 15 available to viewers, just short of three months after the airdate of the last episode.
Considering that Heartland was the fifth most-streamed series on the platform in 2021, we can expect the same this year.
