Two new Christmas specials of Call The Midwife have been confirmed alongside two new series by BBC.
Both series will have 8×60 episodes and a Christmas special each and will be on air until 2024 with series 12 and 13.
Call The Midwife has begun filiming on the brand new series and the Christmas special:
Made by Neal Street Productions for the BBC One and BBC iPlayer, Call The Midwife is celebrating its tenth anniversary series this year and is one of Britain’s most popular drama series.
Heidi Thomas, Creator, Writer and Executive Producer, says: “It’s an incredible privilege to be able to look back on a decade of Call The Midwife, and yet know that our journey is still very far from over. We are thrilled to be going on for a few more years! Like Nonnatus House itself, we have a proud past but an even more exciting future – full of old favourites, fresh faces, higher hemlines, new ideas. The stories we tell are like babies – they never stop coming, we love them all, and we vow to do our best by every single one.”
Last year Call the Midwife’s Christmas special had a 90-minute episode that saw Sister Monica Joan rushed to hospital and Trixie received a subscription to a Marriage Bureau as a Christmas gift.
