Season 10 opens in the year 1966 at a trying time for the midwives. But there is excitement too as the women's rights movement intensifies. With Trixie's (Helen George) help, Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) is determined to steer Nonnatus House out of its financial quandary. Dr. Turner (Stephen McGann) deals with an array of difficult cases, including a former soldier involved in nuclear test explosions.

Meanwhile, Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt) experiences a crisis of faith, and Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) realizes she needs to be a little less spiritual to really connect with the local women. Nonnatus House also welcomes four new pupil midwives, including Nancy Corrigan (Megan Cusack), who makes quite an impression. There are some interesting challenges ahead, as well as great celebrations when England wins the World Cup.

"PBS is thrilled to bring the landmark tenth season of CALL THE MIDWIFE to its passionate fanbase in the U.S.," says Maria Bruno Ruiz, Vice President of Program Scheduling for PBS. "The series has become a Sunday night staple to viewers over the last decade thanks to the talent and creativity of the many women behind and in front of the camera, who've continued to find thoughtful ways to tell important stories about birth, death, love and community."

"Over the past 10 years it has been an honor to see how adored the show is by audiences around the world, thanks to the talented Heidi Thomas and the brilliant work of our cast and crew," says Pippa Harris, Executive Producer for Neal Street Productions." We are excited for viewers across the pond to be swept up in the moving storylines of Nonnatus House and embrace much loved characters and welcome new ones too."

To celebrate the series' 10th anniversary, Weldon Owen will release A Labour of Love: Ten Years of Call The Midwife on November 2, 2021. Written by Stephen McGann, who plays Dr. Patrick Turner on the series, the book explores the moving and personal story of CALL THE MIDWIFE as told by the cast and crew.

BBC announces two further series of award-winning drama Call The Midwife

Two more series of multiple award-winning Call The Midwife have been commissioned for BBC One.

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.
— Heidi Thomas
With series ten due to launch on Sunday 18 April at 8pm and series 11 about to commence filming, Call The Midwife will now be on air until 2024. Series 12 and 13, commissioned by Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama and Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer, will consist of two 8x60’ series and two Christmas specials.

Made by Neal Street Productions for BBC One and BBC iPlayer, Call The Midwife is celebrating its tenth anniversary series this year and continues to be one of Britain’s most popular and most watched drama series since it launched in 2012. The series attracts an enormous audience for BBC One, with its Christmas Specials achieving over 9 million viewers. Series nine was also the fourth biggest drama across all channels in 2020. The drama has won multiple awards across the decade for its depiction of challenging medical stories which are tackled by the nuns and midwives of Poplar.

Heidi Thomas, Creator, Writer and Executive Producer, says: “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.”

Pippa Harris, Executive Producer for Neal Street Productions, says: “We are all delighted by this vote of confidence from the BBC, and are looking forward to delivering more laughter, tears and babies for our loyal fans. Over the past ten years it has been an honour to see how warmly the show has been embraced by audiences around the world, thanks to the skilful writing of Heidi Thomas and the brilliant work of our cast and crew.”

Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, says: “The enduring popularity of Call The Midwife is a testament to the extraordinary love and creativity from its creator Heidi Thomas and its producers Pippa Harris and Ann Tricklebank. We are delighted to have secured the future of Call The Midwife for two further series beyond those which are currently in production, and look forward to enjoying more adventures for the inhabitants of Nonnatus House for years to come."

Series creator Heidi Thomas continues to lead the writing team and serve as Executive Producer alongside Pippa Harris and Ann Tricklebank. Executive Producer for the BBC is Mona Qureshi with Ann Tricklebank as Producer.

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

Created and written by Heidi Thomas the series returns to BBC One for a ninth series in January 2020.

Introduction by Heidi Thomas.

"As the unfamiliar terrain of the Hebrides stretches the team to the utmost at Christmas, their return to Poplar sees them braving a landscape that feels suddenly unfamiliar. Budgets are being cut, and hospitals reorganised. Terraced houses are being demolished, and traditional family structures torn apart. There are wrecking balls everywhere, and it’s up to Sister Julienne, and the midwives and medics of Nonnatus House, to help find a way out of the rubble. When they themselves come under threat, their job becomes even harder.

As the series unfolds, and 1965 rolls by, we see the team dealing with cases involving cancer, diptheria, dementia, fistula, and homelessness. They are faced with loneliness among the elderly, the traumas of an exhausted carer, and the defiant behaviour of a young and vulnerable prostitute. They deliver more babies born out of wedlock, care for a couple whose beloved infant dies, and support a brave and beautiful new mother who is blind. Meanwhile the Turner’s own family comes under threat, Lucille’s romance does not run smooth, and Sister Julienne is driven to take an extraordinary step.

In the interests of balance, I feel obliged to mention here that there is also a posse of visiting medical students, a fashion show in which Trixie wears the shortest miniskirt ever seen in Poplar, a Horticultural Extravaganza which tests Fred to the limit, and a firework display with a lot of toffee apples. Life, in some ways, has never been sweeter. But time and again, we see our beloved regulars patching over the gaps in the system with ingenuity, kindness and - that eternal, priceless, beautiful thing - their care.

Call The Midwife has often been referred to as a “love letter to the NHS”, and - hand on heart - I cannot dispute that. But it is written in praise of many other things besides. Yes, this is a drama that celebrates vaccination, antibiotics, life changing surgery, and gas and air in childbirth, all free at the point of delivery. It also flies the flag for various other miracles of the modern age, including tights, heated rollers and the electric Ladyshave. But above all else, Call The Midwife is a love letter to kindness, tolerance, and courage. To vocation, community and hope.

There are times when the world seems so chaotic, and its problems so unwieldy, that it is easy to forget the power of small things. Throughout series nine, Call The Midwife’s tough, uncompromising, often angry stories are threaded through with little redemptive beats of kindness and generosity. Because these are the things that stitch the whole of life together.

One way and another, the new season of Call The Midwife contains quite a few pieces of advice. For example...

Vaccinate your children.
If you think you are in labour, don’t drink castor oil
And there is always someone, or something you can hold just a little bit closer. It might be a friend, or a relative, or a memory. It might be an institution, like the NHS. Cherish it, even if it seems to make no difference in the scheme of things. As long as there is love involved, that is the thing that matters."
