Call the Midwife is a popular BBC period drama series that tells the story of a group of nurse midwives functioning in the East End of London in the late 1950s and 1960s. The show made its debut on January 15th, 2012. BBC Worldwide has also marketed the program to different countries, including Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Spain, Finland, Portugal, Greece, Australia, and New Zealand. In July 2012, BBC Worldwide declared it traded the global Video on Demand rights of the program to Netflix.
The show has so far released eleven seasons with 95 episodes in total. The latest season made its debut on January 2nd, 2022, and concluded on February 20th, 2022, with eight episodes and a special.
Season 10 of the series is currently streaming on the platform, and fans are eagerly waiting for the arrival of the eleventh installment.
The series was developed by Heidi Thomas, initially based on the biographies of Jennifer Worth. She performed with the Community of St. John the Divine, an Anglican religious order, at their convent in the East End in London. The plot circles around newly qualified midwife Jenny Lee and the work of midwives and the nuns of Nonnatus House.
Since 2014, Netflix had received annual releases of Call, the Midwife, except in 2020, when the series was delayed due to coronavirus. The most recent season, season 10, landed on Netflix on March 21st, 2022. The series is now only airing on Netflix US as Netflix UK notably saw the series removed back in September 2021.
Since the show has already been aired in the UK, we haven’t received any official updates regarding its release on the platform. Throughout estimations, we can expect its arrival in very late 2022 or, more likely, 2023. This season was set in 1967, and we begin the season following Nancy, who begins her first day as a newly qualified midwife. For further updates, stay tuned.
