How to Stream Heartland Season 17 in the United States

Heartland, the crown jewel of Canadian drama, is gearing up for its U.S. comeback. This time, it’s bringing its 17th season to a slightly different spot.

The series will make its Stateside return on Thursday, April 25. It’s set to premiere on UP Faith & Family, a streaming service known for its commercial-free viewing experience. This platform is already home to the first 16 seasons of Heartland.

Fans should mark their calendars. New episodes will drop weekly. However, there’s a twist. After the fifth episode, there will be a three-week pause. But don’t worry, during this break, UP Faith & Family plans to treat fans to some exclusive content.

Heartland has found a unique way to keep its audience engaged. During the hiatus, viewers can look forward to special content that’s been tailored just for them.

The exclusive U.S. streaming rights for Heartland belong to UP Faith & Family until early 2025. As for a linear premiere on UPtv, where the series previously debuted in the U.S., details are still up in the air.

There’s something special for the fans before the season even starts. The Heartland FanFest is a virtual event scheduled for April 15, from 2-3 pm ET. It’s a chance for fans to interact with their favorite cast members, including Amber Marshall, Michelle Morgan, and Chris Potter.

During FanFest, attendees will get a sneak peek at an upcoming episode. Plus, the event will be recorded for UP Faith & Family subscribers to enjoy during the three-week break. Want to join live? You can register at

Hector Campos, the SVP of content strategy and programming at UP Entertainment, shared his excitement. He emphasized that UP Faith & Family remains the go-to place for the latest Heartland season in the U.S. This year, they’re going all out with the first-ever FanFest, offering fans exclusive access to the cast.

Heartland is more than just a show; it’s a saga set against the stunning backdrop of the Rockies in the fictional town of Hudson, Alberta. The series, based on Lauren Brooke’s bestselling books, weaves tales of dreams, unexpected turns, and steadfast values.

The upcoming season promises new adventures and challenges for the Bartlett-Fleming family. Despite the changes, Amy, Lou, Jack, and Tim remain committed to their beliefs and the land that’s been in their family for generations.

Behind the scenes, Heartland boasts a talented team. Michael Weinberg, Tom Cox, Jordy Randall, and Mark Haroun lead as executive producers. The writing team includes Ken Craw, Caitlin Fryers, and others, while Season 17’s directors feature Dean Bennett and cast members Potter and Morgan, among others.
