For all you Hearties, the wait is over. Season six of When Calls the Heart will premiere Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Hallmark Channel. This very popular series stars Lori Loughlin, Erin Krakow, Jack Wagner, Pascale Hutton, and Kavan Smith. In the season premiere, the town of Hope Valley adjusts to the changing times — while still maintaining the small-town bonds that connect them. After taking time off to care for her new baby, Elizabeth (Krakow) returns to teaching but soon realizes she needs more support than she could have imagined. Abigail (Loughlin) prepares for the arrival of the telephone to Hope Valley. Bill (Wagner) and Gowen (Martin Cummins) enter a bidding war for the town saloon. Rosemary (Hutton) senses a spark between Faith (Andrea Brooks) and Carson (Paul Greene).

truTV invites you back into the rich, imaginative and slightly deranged world of At Home with Amy Sedaris when the Emmy® nominated variety sketch series returns Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Created by Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello, the 10-episode second season will again feature Sedaris’ signature brand of silliness as she showcases her decorating, cooking and crafting skills. Each week the show revolves around a conventional homemaking theme, with subversive twists taking segments in delightfully wacky directions. New topics explored this season include how to entertain teenagers, game nights, caring for the ill and makeovers. Sedaris will welcome an impressive list of guest stars, including: Rose Byrne, Matthew Broderick, Justin Theroux, Susan Sarandon, Gillian Jacobs, Juliette Lewis, Ellie Kemper, Fred Armisen, Michael Shannon, Ana Gasteyer, John Early, James Monroe Iglehart and more.
