Set in post-WWII London, the historical drama centers on a group of nurses, nuns, and midwives. The cast includes Jessica Raine, Miranda Hart, Jenny Agutter, Pam Ferris, Judy Parfitt, Helen George, Bryony Hannah, and Laura Main.
Ahead of the show’s season six premiere next year, BBC One has ordered a seventh, eighth, and ninth season of Call the Midwife in addition to three Christmas specials. Each season will be eight episodes long and see the women of Nonnatus House transition into the 1960s.
From creator Heidi Thomas:
Britain was a country fizzing with change and challenge, and there is so much rich material — medical, social, and emotional — to be explored. We have now delivered well over one hundred babies on screen, and like those babies, the stories keep on coming! Above all else, it is an incredible privilege to work on a show that is made with such care, and received with such love.”
What do you think? Do you watch Call the Midwife? Are you glad there will be more seasons?
