When Calls the Heart star Daniel Lissing has just booked a new show. The fans have been upset ever since they killed off his character Jack Thornton. It will be great to see him on television again, but sadly it won’t be WCTH that he is on.
Daniel Lissing is returning, but not on When Calls the Heart
The fans would love to see a Jack and Elizabeth Thornton reunion on When Calls the Heart, but that isn’t happening. Jack’s character is dead and gone. Soap Opera News reported Daniel Lissing will be joining a new show, though. It was recently revealed that he has booked a role on S.W.A.T. The thing is this is just for one episode so far. This series airs on CBS.
Lissing will be playing a character named Ty. S.W.A.T is on its second season. He will be on an episode that is called Never Again. A group of thieves has been working hard to rob people over their diamonds. They are trying to figure out who will be the next victim. They are going after big diamond dealers.
This episode will air on November 1, 2018. If you want to see Daniel Lissing, make sure you don’t miss this episode of S.W.A.T.
Why did Daniel Lissing leave When Calls the Heart?
Everyone was shocked when Daniel Lissing moved on from When Calls the Heart. Jack and Elizabeth were in a great spot. The couple had recently gotten married and they have a baby on the way. Jack was killed off the show, which left Elizabeth as a widow. The Hearties still haven’t gotten over this big change.
The decision to leave WCTH was completely Daniel’s decision. He was ready to move on to something new. His contract was over, so Daniel decided it was time to leave. This couldn’t have been an easy decision, but everyone says that he left on good terms.
If you have watched the show, everyone knows that Jack would never just leave Elizabeth behind. Killing him off the show was the only way that it would work. This also makes it hard to ever bring him back to the show unless they do a ghost scene. The fans would embrace seeing him back anyway that they could get him.
It has been revealed that When Calls the Heart will be back for a Christmas special. Then new episodes will come in 2019. Jack Wagner is returning, but Daniel Lissing has moved on.
