Call The Midwife: BBC Announces Two More Series - Plus Christmas Specials

With the landmark tenth series set to launch this Sunday and an eleventh series planned to begin filming shortly, Call The Midwife is more popular than ever.

BBC has just confirmed that they have even more Call The Midwife episodes on the horizon, with a twelfth and thirteenth series plus two more Christmas specials.

This will keep the beloved period drama on the air until at least 2024, with both newly ordered series set to consist of eight episodes.

Heidi Thomas, Creator, Writer and Executive Producer, said: "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."

Call The Midwife continues to be one of the BBC's most watched dramas since it launched in 2012. Last year's Christmas special was the channel's most watched non-royal broadcast on Christmas Day. More than eight million viewers watched as Nonnatus House prepared their traditional Christmas get-together but things did not go according to plan.

Sister Monica Joan had to be rushed to hospital, and Trixie was furious to receive a subscription to a Marriage Bureau as a Christmas gift. A surprise reunion for Shelagh involved her in a very emotional birth, and the circus arrives in Poplar - which brings about an exciting adventure for Nurse Crane.

Series 10 premieres on Sunday and will take place in 1966. We don't know much about the storylines for the upcoming series but we can make some assumptions based on everything that happened in England at the time.

In March there was a snap general election which led to Labour's Harold Wilson becoming the next prime minister. England also won the World Cup against Germany which may serve as a nice backdrop for the new series.

Call The Midwife returns this Sunday at 8pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
