Call the Midwife will be back for Christmas

The drama will return to our television screens with a Christmas special in 2019, and eight episodes in early 2020. It has since been revealed that the BBC has re-commissioned Call the Midwife for both series 10 and 11, which means the show will continue to air until at least 2022. Creator and writer Heidi Thomas said: "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."
