Heartland is filming in the Foothills once again, and now we know when the newest season will hit the airwaves.

The show's 16th season will start airing on October 2 and will be comprised of 15 episodes.

Foothills locals hold a particular fondness for the show, as much of it is filmed in and around High River.

The show looks to still be going strong, placing ninth in Nielson's 2021 Top 15 Streaming Shows (Acquired) of 2021.

It amassed 20 billion viewing minutes that year.

Heartland is the longest-running one-hour scripted drama in Canadian television history.
