Fans of the British feel-good phenomenon Call the Midwife are already wondering what the future holds for Poplar’s busiest midwives after an exceptionally dramatic ninth season. Until further notice, here is everything we know about the beloved series’ future.
A Brief Description of the Call The Midwife Series
During the late 1950s and early 1960s in London’s East End, a group of nurse midwives known as “Call the Midwife” performed births.
Jessica Raine, Miranda Hart, Helen George. Bryony Hannah, Laura Main, Jenny Agutter, Pam Ferris, Judy Parfitt, Cliff Parisi, Stephen McGann, Ben Caplan, Daniel Laurie, Emerald Fennell.
Victoria Yeates, Jack Ashton, Linda Bassett, Charlotte Ritchie, Kate Lamb, Jennifer Kirby, Annabelle Apsion, and Leonie Elliott have all appeared as the show’s main cast members over the course of the run.
The Cast of Call The Midwife Season 10
In addition to Jenny Agutter (Sister Julienne), Helen George (Trixie), Leonie Elliott (Lucille), and Judy Parfitt (Sister Monica Joan), the show’s core cast will return for season 10.
Before the season 9 Christmas special, Jennifer Kirby, who played Nurse Valerie Dyer from seasons 6 to 9, left the programme. However, a new face would step into the role.
Actress Sinéad Cusack and Jeremy Irons’ niece Megan Cusack is allegedly joining the cast as Nancy Corrigan, a student midwife.
What’s in Store for Call The Midwife Season 10?
The opening of the season, which takes place in 1966, has been hinted in a release for the new season, which is still under wraps.
According to Sister Julienne’s Jenny Agutter, “Episode one this year is all about attempting to establish a possible future, modernise, and do things differently so that the order may move into the modern day.”
In order to give money back to the community, “[Julienne] looks at the potential of collecting money through work outside the order.”
She added that the nurses will be collaborating with a private birthing centre in Chelsea during the season. “The Lady Emily Clinic’s delivery process is more doctor-led.
The thought is that Nonnatus House will rent out midwives and nuns to the Lady Emily to help out with the deliveries and to staff the practice.
Nonnatus House will be saved as a result of their efforts. However, we’ll have to wait until the second episode to find out how it went!”
Call the Midwife Season 10 Release Date
The tenth season of BBC One’s Call the Midwife premiered on Sunday, April 18, 2021, at 8 p.m. BBC One airs new episodes every Sunday at 8 p.m., and there are seven in all.
Don’t miss a special documentary on Call the Midwife, which will air on BBC One on Sunday, May 30th at 9pm to commemorate the show’s tenth anniversary.
Why is Call the Midwife Airing Now?
If you had called the midwife in January, she would have been back by now. Coronavirus put a five-month hold on filming, thus it didn’t air within its scheduled time slot. Additionally, the number of episodes has been cut from eight to seven.
It was a key goal to provide a 90-minute festival special in time for Christmas Day as soon as filming could begin on Call the Midwife. It aired on BBC One on December 25th, 2020, and may be accessed on BBC iPlayer at any time.
Will this be the Last Season?
Good news for those who enjoy watching Nonnatus House’s adventures: There will be no more seasons of Midwife to look forward to. The BBC has verified that the show’s order has been extended to include all 13 episodes.
In spite of the COVID-19 epidemic delaying the tenth season’s filming, it has been announced that all future seasons would feature 8 hour-long episodes and a Christmas special, like in prior seasons.
Has Call the Midwife Been Recommissioned?
Yes! We already knew that Call the Midwife would return in 2022 for its eleventh season, but the BBC has now approved seasons 12 and 13, ensuring the show’s long-term viability.
In each of these, there will be eight regular episodes and two Christmas specials. As a result, the show will continue airing until at least 2024!
“It’s a great luxury to be able to reflect back on a decade of Call the Midwife, and yet know that our journey is still very far from done,” the show’s creator, writer, and executive producer Heidi Thomas said.
For the next five years, we’ll be doing what we love! We, like Nonnatus House, have a proud history, but we also have a bright future ahead of us, full of familiar faces, newcomers, shorter skirts, and fresh perspectives.
It’s like having a baby: “The stories we tell never stop arriving, we love them all, and we promise to do our best by every single one.”
What Happened in the Call the Midwife Christmas Special 2020?
It was December 1965 in Poplar, and the circus had just arrived, led by Peter Davison as the ringmaster, Mr Percival; this allowed Nurse Phyllis Crane (Linda Bassett) a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dress up and soar on the trapeze.
Gloria Venables, a character we’ve previously seen on Call the Midwife, appeared in this episode’s moving subplot with Shelagh Turner (Laura Main).
When Gloria learned she was pregnant for a third time, she was tortured with grief and fear.
After receiving a “Marriage Bureau” subscription as a Christmas gift, Trixie from Call the Midwife went speed dating. Even so, it wasn’t a huge hit.
Sadly, Season 1 of Call the Midwife is coming to an end, but we can look forward to the final episode of Season 1o, in which members of the Nonnatus House staff attempt to come to terms with Nancy’s shocking disclosure.
Call the Midwife has been renewed for at least two more seasons, securing its place on the BBC for the next three years as we bid farewell to the Sisters.
