PBS has finally announced when the next season of Call the Midwife will begin in the US!

The BBC’s hit period drama series about a group of nurse midwives in the East End of London celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.

Airing a bit later in the year than usual following production delays in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Season 10 only finished filming in February.

The show returned in the UK this spring with seven brand new episodes.
