High River, AB: The Town of High River is honoured to once again stand in as the fictional community of Hudson on the popular television series Heartland as crews prepare to begin filming season 9.
Crews will arrive in High River on the evening of Friday, May 29 and begin setting up equipment and vehicles along the former railway tracks and gravel area between 1st and Centre Street S.W.
On the morning of Monday, June 1, filming will begin at 7 a.m. on 1 Street and 4 Avenue S.W. and continue until noon. In the afternoon, filming will move to 3 Avenue S.W. from 12:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Filming and production crews will employ every option to limit the impact that filming may have on residents and all possible considerations will be made to accommodate local traffic and emergency vehicles.
After filming is completed for the day, crews will remove all equipment and vehicles until their next filming date on Monday, June 22.
Entering its ninth season, Heartland is a long running, multi-generational saga about a family getting through life together in both happy and trying times. Set against the magnificent backdrop of the foothills of southern Alberta, Heartland is filmed in High River as well as on nearby private-property locations and on a studio set in Calgary.
