What’s This TV Show About?
A PBS historical drama based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife stars Jenny Agutter, Judy Parfitt, Helen George, Laura Main, Stephen McGann, Cliff Parisi, Victoria Yeates, Charlotte Ritchie, Linda Bassett, Jennifer Kirby, Annabelle Apsion, and Leonie Elliott. The post-WWII series centers on the midwives and nuns at Nonnatus House, in the Poplar district of London’s East End. In the seventh season, West Indian nurse Lucille Anderson (Elliott) arrives in Poplar. There, she and the rest of the staff must rise to the challenge of helping unmarried mothers, as deal with threats including leprosy, tokophobia, and stroke resulting from Huntington’s chorea.
Because American public television is supported by “Viewers like you,” rather than ads, ratings aren’t all that useful a measure for predicting whether PBS will cancel or renew Call the Midwife for season eight. As with many PBS TV series, this is originally a British program. In UK, Call the Midwife was renewed through season nine on BBC One, back in November of 2016. After seven seasons on the air, stateside, its highly unlikely that PBS will drop it, before it ends its natural run. I’m certain enough that PBS will renew it for season eight, that I’m seeking my supper somewhere else. Still, I’ll keep an eye on the trades for any news about this series.
