PBS has announced that Call the Midwife is set to return on US screens in just a few months’ time.

Season 11 will premiere at 8/7c on Sunday 20th March 2022 on PBS Masterpiece.

The opening episode is set during Easter 1967, with celebrations underway for an exciting Easter bonnet parade outside Nonnatus House.

Meanwhile, Sister Monica Joan and Reggie can’t wait for the Eurovision Song Contest, Lucille and Cyril are enjoying married life, and builders make a shocking discovery in Poplar.

It was confirmed by the BBC earlier this year that Call the Midwife is going to continue airing until at least 2024!

The three upcoming seasons, plus three more Christmas specials, will take the Poplar residents into 1969.

Writer and creator Heidi Thomas shared her excitement: “We are thrilled to be going on for a few more years! Like Nonnatus House itself, we have a proud past but an even more exciting future – full of old favourites, fresh faces, higher hemlines, new ideas.”

She added: “The stories we tell are like babies – they never stop coming, we love them all, and we vow to do our best by every single one.”

Call the Midwife fans can celebrate the show’s 10th anniversary with a beautiful new book compiled by Dr Turner actor Stephen McGann.
