The BBC has officially ordered two more series of Call The Midwife, which will keep the baby-delivering period drama on our screens until 2022. Here’s all the info…
Given that series 9 was already in production, the BBC’s official press bumf makes it clear that this announcement of two new series pertains to series 10 and series 11. That’s a grand total of three more series in the pipeline, then!
Heidi Thomas, the writer and creator of Call The Midwife, said this about the news:
“Even after all these years, it still feels as though Call the Midwife has more truth to tell, more tears to cry, more life to celebrate, and more love to give. We are blessed with the best cast, crew, and audience a show could wish for, and I could not be more excited about our future.”
The BBC’s director of content, Charlotte Moore, added this:
“Everyone at the BBC is delighted we’re welcoming the nurses of Nonnatus House back for another two series and we’re all looking forward to following our cast through the tumultuous years of the late sixties. I’d like to thank the wonderful cast and crew, and particularly Heidi, Pippa and Ann for their continued creative ambition and dedication to such a very special show.”
Call The Midwife‘s next episode will be airing on Christmas day 2019, with series 9 set to follow in 2020.
