Get ready, Call the Midwife fans, for more marathon viewing. If you’ve never heard of it, here’s some background on it: The network made the announcement before season 10 aired in the UK that they have ordered an additional two seasons of the series in addition to the already-scheduled season 11.
Seasons 12 and 13 of Adventures of The show are now confirmed, so fans will be able to keep up with the show until at least 2024. This is an honour to be able to look back at a decade of Call the Midwife and know that we still have a long way to go forward,” the show’s creator Heidi Thomas explained.
Everyone on our staff is thrilled to be able to keep working for the foreseeable future. With our rich history, we can look forward to a future filled with old favourites, new people to meet, taller hems to wear and ideas to implement.
The stories are like children: they keep coming, we all adore them, and we try our best to make things right for them all at the same time.
According to the show’s official Twitter account, season 11 ended in November of last year.
It’s almost time for the programme to return to the small screen in the UK and the United States, and production is expected to wrap up in the first quarter of 2019. This will occur on March 20, 2022, in the United States.
The cast and characters of Call the Midwife Season 11
It’s safe to assume that Helen George (Trixie), Leonie Elliott (Lucille), Jenny Agutter (Sister Julienne), Judy Parfitt, and Linda will all be returning despite the fact that no casting announcements have been made.
For the first time, the stars of Nonnatus House have hinted that the show’s upcoming season could bring some major changes.
There will be a huge storyline in Season 11, according to actor Stephen McGann (who plays Dr. Turner on the programme and is also Heidi Thomas’ husband), in an interview with CBS. “It’s huge, it’s wonderful, and it’s a genuine challenge,” he remarked.
Although we have some ideas for historical events to be covered in the show, we are unsure of the hurdles that may lie ahead. We can hazard a guess based on the fact that each season corresponds to a particular year in history.
The season will most likely take place in 1967, the year of the legalisation of abortion and the passage of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, which made “homosexual conduct” between adult males no longer illegal.
It’s hardly a surprise that the programme will be tackling some difficult topics in its next episodes, given the show’s history of tackling difficult matters.
A new season of Call the Midwife has already been hinted by the show’s stars, which suggests that Matthew Aylward and Trixie Franklin will become closer.
Fiona, Matthew’s wife, died of acute myeloid leukaemia shortly after giving birth to Matthew at the Lady Emily Clinic in season 10.
Call the Midwife, the much-loved BBC historical drama, saw a stunning plot twist air on Sunday night, leaving viewers emotionally shaken.
Trixie and Matthew discovered the newborn’s remains among the rubble of a soon-to-be-demolished building. By Detective Sergeant Virginia Barrow, played by Lu Corfield, we learnt that Mrs. Nyall, an elderly lady who suffers from dementia, was in fact the mother of the baby we saw earlier on.
DS Barrow and Nurse Phyllis tracked Mrs. Nyall and her daughter Marigold to the house where the baby was found, and they discovered that her mother had delivered two babies under the floorboards and inside the chimney, a secret the two of them had kept for more than 30 years before they were revealed. It was possible that Mrs. Nyall underwent a hysterectomy after the delivery of Marigold in order to save herself and could not have given birth to the other children.
When Marigold is questioned after a harrowing scene, she is told she had a pact with a married guy who exploited her for a long time.
There were no charges brought against Marigold because both of her infants died during childbirth.
Despite the storyline’s controversial nature, the show’s devotees have lauded the show for its compassionate treatment of serious subjects.
Show creators have long been lauded for their ability to come up with such thought-provoking plot points. From spina bifida to tuberculosis to female genital mutilation (FGM) to mental health, it has covered it all throughout its six-season span.
When we saw a young mother of three die after using the contraceptive pill in the season six finale, it was terrible.
