Is Call the midwife fresh on BBC One tonight? Will we get a chance to go some more in Nonnatus House? There is much to discuss here and we are happy to list it for you.
For starters, let’s take a look at the current state of affairs: There is currently no new episode scheduled to air on the network. The rationale is pretty clear: the conclusion happened last week! The BBC planned ahead to end the season with a huge, dramatic event that put the lives of several main characters at risk. We are well aware that Call the Midwife has emotionally destroyed a good number of us with their finales before, and in principle they could have easily done it again here. However, that didn’t happen. dr. Turner and Sister Julienne are both alive. We saw Nurse Crane return towards the end of the episode, and Helen George should return too, barring any last minute announcements. She was on maternity leave for most of the Season 11 finale.
Here’s the good news: we’re confident there’s a lot more great content on the way! Call the Midwife has already been renewed for a 12th season, and the current plan is to see a Christmas Special later this year as well. For many people out there, this is a program about tradition, and the goal seems to be to continue that tradition a little longer.
Finally, let’s hope for more beautiful, heartfelt stories from women in need and the midwives/sisters who do everything possible to help them. This is a show that is confident in its identity; it requires no significant changes as a result.
Will there be a 12th season of Call the Midwife?
Despite speculation of cancellation, Call the Midwife has been renewed for a 13th season to follow the upcoming 12th episode, which is scheduled to air in 2023. BBC One will air Call the Midwife.
Call the Midwife season 12 release date:
Call the Midwife has been a hit for the BBC over the years and has already been renewed for two seasons.
With the addition of seasons 12 and 13, the drama is expected to last until at least 2024.
In a recent interview, the cast of Call the Midwife discussed the show’s impending return to television.
Season 12 of Call the Midwife has not yet been given an official release date, although it is expected to premiere in 2023.
The cast of Call The Midwife Season 12:
Jenny Agutter stars as Sister Julienne, Judy Parfitt as Sister Monica Joan, Linda Bassett as Phyllis Crane and Stephen McGann as Patrick Turner in the British historical drama series. Laura Main portrays Shelagh Turner, Zephryn Taitte portrays Cyril Robinson and Cliff Parisi portrays Fred.
Then there’s Helen George in the role of Trixie. Violet Buckle is played by Annabelle Apsion, Lucille Anderson is played by Leonie Elliott and Reggie Jackson is played by Daniel Laurie. In addition to the aforementioned celebrities, the series also features a few additional notable actors. In terms of returning cast members, the majority of the core cast will likely reprise their roles if a Call The Midwife season 12 is released.
Call the Midwife Season 12 Storyline:
The creative team at Call the Midwife has stated that there will be additional babies and drama.
Pippa Harris, executive producer of Neal Street Productions, stated (via Express):
“We are all delighted with the BBC’s confidence in us and look forward to bringing more laughter, tears and babies to our devoted fans.”
Heidi Thomas teased the following storylines:
“Our stories are like newborns – they never stop coming, we love them all, and we promise to do our best for everyone.”
Trixie’s recuperation will likely be the focus of the coming season, so fans should anticipate some character development in that regard.
McGann told Digital Spy and other media outlets about the show’s overall future: “The most general statement I can make about it is that we’re all very happy with the direction it’s taking. We’ve always argued that it… I believe it follows a natural, broad period historically.
“It will not continue indefinitely, as it would not exist indefinitely. If you adhere to a certain level of historical truth, it will not remain in that form indefinitely, just as it did then. As a result, it has a kind of conclusion.
“However, I believe (the creative team) is far too astute A) not to know when that would be, or B) to make it work within the confines of history.”
Thank goodness is forever still at least two years away!
What Happened in Season 11 of ‘Call the Midwife’?
Call the Midwife has shown over the years that it is more than a light-hearted Sunday night drama about infants; it is also not afraid to tackle difficult and passionate subjects.
Jenny Agutter, who plays Sister Julienne, teased a few details of the upcoming season… “The year is 1967 and we are well into our sixties. Individuals have higher expectations, which I think Sister Julienne is responding to. Having lived through both world wars, she is grateful for all that exists, but she also knows that some of those things can cause problems on their own. The plethora of consumer choices creates a plethora of complications.
“We are also tackling a number of themes in the series. There are some positive aspects such as Timothy Turner’s coming of age, becoming a doctor and making his first phone call with his father. We also come into contact with gangsters, because we are steeped in that time.”
Helen George, who plays Trixie, has also hinted that her character’s bond with Matthew may grow stronger this season… Trixie was involved in both his birth and the woman’s death, so it’s a truly awful story that’s been handled delicately.
“You can see Trixie and Matthew getting closer, and the bond they developed as a result of going through something so monumental is showing. It’s incredible to see the bond of trust, friendship and support develop.”
