More Call the Midwife


The BBC has commissioned two more seasons of Neal Street Productions’ Call the Midwife.

With seasons 14 and 15, the multiple award-winning drama will now be on air until 2026, with season 13 commencing filming in the spring.

Seasons 14 and 15 will both consist of 8 hour-long episodes and a Christmas special for BBC One and iPlayer.

Heidi Thomas, creator and writer, 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. We are a family behind the scenes, on the screen and in front of the telly, and I’m thrilled that we’re all heading into the 1970s together.”

Dame Pippa Harris, executive producer, said: “I’m delighted that the BBC has commissioned another two series of Call the Midwife, taking us into the early ’70s. 15 series is a tremendous achievement, and it’s a testament to the passion and dedication of our cast and crew, of whom I’m very proud. But the show wouldn’t be the phenomenal success it is without the formidable presence of our creator and writer Heidi Thomas. Her continued devotion to the characters and determination to tell the untold stories of women is truly inspiring. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us and our extremely loyal audience in the future!”

Lindsay Salt, director of BBC Drama, said: “Call the Midwife’s enduring popularity is thanks to the extraordinary creative talents and hard work of creator Heidi Thomas, executive producers Pippa Harris and Ann Tricklebank and the series’ dedicated cast and crew. I know they have many more stories to tell—and that the residents of Nonnatus House have many more babies to deliver—so I’m delighted that Call the Midwife will continue on BBC One and iPlayer for more years to come.”
