GAC Family has set When Hope Calls: Hearties Christmas Present, billed as a “surprise one-hour original special,” to air Sunday, December 12 at 10 pm ET. It will immediately follow the world premiere of previously announced A Christmas Star, movie starring Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries) and When Calls the Heart‘s Daniel Lissing.

The one-hour special was filmed on the set of When Hope Calls, spinoff to the nine-year hit When Calls The Heart which spawned the loyal fandom known as the #Hearties.
