Lori Loughlin left out of new Hallmark poster after college admissions scandal

Lori Loughlin has been erased from the Hallmark series “When Calls the Heart.” 

The western drama series featured Loughlin in a big part as the town mayor.

The show is a huge hit for the channel, with millions of devoted fans who call themselves "Hearties.” When Hallmark announced last week they were severing ties with Loughlin and halting all production of any shows and movies she was a part of, those fans were devastated. 

The Hearties took to Twitter, bombarding the producers to keep the show on the air and it worked.

"'When Calls the Heart’ has always been bigger than the sum of its parts, and it has not been canceled,” the producers said in a statement. “With the full support of the network, we have gone on a creative hiatus to do some retooling on the remaining season 6 episodes."

The producers also posted a series of images on Instagram over the weekend assuring fans the show would go on.

The episodes have already been filmed and edited, and now the plan is to cut Loughlin out.
