PBS reveals ‘Call the Midwife’ premiere date for Season 12

It’s been announced when the new season of Call the Midwife begins in the US!

Following its recent Christmas special, the BBC’s long-running period drama series about a group of nurse midwives in the East End of London returned in the UK on New Year’s Day.

The eight brand new episodes are set in 1968, with all our favourite nuns and nurses from Nonnatus House back for more midwifery and family life.

Stateside fans of Call the Midwife will be used to waiting a few months for each new season to cross the pond after its UK debut.

Thankfully, we’ve now got an American release date for your diaries…

When does Season 12 start on PBS?

We can confirm that Call the Midwife will return in the US on Sunday 19th March, airing at 8pm ET on PBS.

New episodes will air weekly on Sunday nights through until the 7th of May.

Season 12 will also be available to stream on PBS.org and the PBS app.

Even though the twelfth season has only just begun, the cast and crew are set to begin filming a thirteenth season of Call the Midwife in England this spring!

However, Shelagh Turner actress Laura Main recently gave fans an update on the show’s future, discussing when the show might end.

Period drama fans have plenty to enjoy on PBS Masterpiece in 2023, with brand new seasons of Miss Scarlet and the Duke, Vienna Blood, and All Creatures Great and Small airing on Sunday nights this month.
