‘Call the Midwife’ return date confirmed: When does Season 10 start?

The BBC has announced when the new season of Call the Midwife will begin.

The hit period drama series about a group of nurse midwives in the East End of London first aired in January 2012, based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth.

Filming was halted last year on tenth run of episodes due to the coronavirus pandemic, but production was able to resume safely in time to shoot 2020’s Christmas special.

Season 10 will premiere in the UK at 8pm on Sunday 18th April on BBC One.

Call the Midwife will return in the US later this year on PBS.

In the first of seven brand new 60-minute episodes, change is on the horizon in Poplar as Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) must determine whether a private clinic venture is a suitable workplace for the Sisters.

Meanwhile, Sister Monica Joan’s (Judy Parfitt) crisis of faith will continue to weigh heavily on her mind.

More exciting Call the Midwife news was revealed last week when creator Heidi Thomas confirmed that the team have already started work on the eleventh season, which will air in 2022.

Season 9 is available on DVD on Amazon.
