Lori Loughlin is officially out at her long-running Hallmark series When Calls the Heart amid her ongoing college admissions scandal. On Wednesday, co-star Elizabeth Krakow revealed in a YouTube video that "season 6 is returning Sunday, May 5," after the show was put on hiatus March 17 thanks to Loughlin's legal troubles. The video went on to feature a sneak peek of the next two episodes--with no sign of Loughlin. "The remaining season 6 installments have been re-edited in such a manner that removes any appearances by Loughlin," a source tells EW. The Hallmark Channel previously said in a statement, "We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air...involving Lori Loughlin." The 54-year-old actress was widely regarded as the network's biggest name, also appearing on Garage Sale Mysteries as well as in several Christmas movies.
