BBC conceives two more series of Call the Midwife

As Call the Midwife still has the nation crying happy tears, the BBC has commissioned two further series.

It means that the heart-warming period drama, which is nearing the end of its 12th series, will air on the BBC until 2026.

Celebrating the announcement, Heidi Thomas, creator and writer of the series, said: “I’m overjoyed by the news that the doors of Nonnatus House will be open for a few more years! Call the Midwife is the pride and joy of all who work on it, but it’s our fantastic, loyal audience that matters most.
