It was only a few months ago that we were all tuning into the aftermath of the terrible train crash and the midwives moving into their new maternity clinic. Now fans of the series will be overjoyed to know that series 14 and 15 have been confirmed.

Not only will this see Call the Midwife on our screens until 2026 but it has also guaranteed us a further two festive specials.

Heidi Thomas, creator and writer says: “I’m overjoyed by the news that the doors of Nonnatus House will be open for a few more years! Call the Midwife is the pride and joy of all who work on it, but it’s our fantastic, loyal audience that matters most. We are a family behind the scenes, on the screen, and in front of the telly, and I’m thrilled that we’re all heading into the 1970s together.”

Last year’s Christmas special was the fourth most-watched festive programme on Christmas Day after the King’s Speech, Strictly Come Dancing’s Christmas Special and Michael McIntyre’s Christmas Wheel over on BBC.

Meanwhile, the 12th season of the BBC One show returned on New Year’s day this year following the 2022 Christmas special that was watched by over 4 million. The final episode of the current series airs on Sunday 26 February at 8pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

This is not the first Christmas special to be announced for 2023 as SKY has already confirmed A League of Their Own will be back with another festive episode along with a new original Christmas film – Joy To The World, starring Timothy Spall and James Nesbitt
