Will There Be A Call the Midwife Season 12?
What a hasty pace. In the season finale of Call the Midwife, the destiny of favorite characters was up in the air after a train crash.
Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) and the excellent doctor (Stephen McGann’s Dr. Turner) were injured and trapped, and their condition was becoming increasingly serious. A suspected heart attack and a concussion put their lives in jeopardy.
Additionally, the raven of doom has been ticking away in the back of viewers’ minds like a ticking time bomb, teasing the worst-case scenario.
Thankfully, the two passengers were unharmed, but the driver, whose pregnant wife was on the verge of giving delivery, tragically lost her life in the accident.

Nurse Trixie Franklin (Helen George), who left Nonnatus House in episode five, was forced to deal with chaos without Sister Julienne at the helm of their ship and her typically cheerful mood.
Returning from a journey to save the day, nurse Phyllis Crane (Linda Bassett) calmed viewers’ fears with her steady approach to the problem
That was a lot, I tell ya. While we discuss the future of Call the Midwife, it’s a good idea to refuel with a cup of tea and a piece of cake.
Call the Midwife Season 12 Release Date
However, despite the raven’s prediction of bad news, renewals remain a bright spot. The BBC has renewed the show for a 12th season in 2023, and it has also been granted the go-ahead for a 13th season, which will air in 2024.
In an interview, the show’s creator, writer, and executive producer, Heidi Thomas, said:
“It’s an incredible privilege to be able to look back on a decade of Call the Midwife, and yet know that our journey is still very far from over. 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 favorites, fresh faces, higher hemlines, new ideas. 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.”
In addition to eight one-hour episodes, there will be a feature-length Christmas special in Season 12.
Call the Midwife Season 12 Cast
We can expect Agutter’s Sister Julienne to return for season 12 despite her recent brush with mortality.
As well as Nurse Nancy Corrigan (Megan Cusack) and Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) she is likely to be accompanied by Sister Hilda (Fenella Woolgar) Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt) and Miss Higgins (Georgie Glen). Another character, Leonie Elliott’s Lucille Robinson, and her onscreen husband Cyril Robinson is expected to return.
One of our regulars, the vivacious Trixie Franklin, was forced to leave the show in the middle of the season after a hard period. While in Italy, Helen George’s character was entrusted with the care of an ailing aunt. Trixie, on the other hand, is actually pregnant with her own child.
During their conversation, George revealed the following about his wife’s pregnancy:
“I was pregnant in the series, so you just kind of see me walk across the screen sometimes with odd fashions, or I’d sit down a lot, or I’m wearing lots of capes.
“It wasn’t a correct storyline to choose for the character, as well. It wasn’t right for Trixie to be pregnant. So we just did our best to cover it up.”
For the time being, Trixie is taking a six-month leave of absence from Nonnatus House and will return in the future.
Doctor Turner and his family, including wife Shelagh (Laura Main) and son Timothy Turner (Max Macmillan).
Trixie and single father Matthew Aylward (Olly Rix) shared a kiss earlier in the season, and we’re hoping to see more of them in the future.

Heidi Thomas hinted at potential storylines:
“There are no limits to the number of stories we can tell; they keep arriving, we cherish them, and we promise to do our best for each of them.”
“Fans should expect a lot of character development in Trixie’s recovery in the upcoming season.”
McGann said in an interview with Digital Spy and other media outlets: “The most general thing I can say about that is, we’re all very happy with where it’s going. We have always said that it has… I think, historically, it has a natural, general timeline.
“It won’t go on forever, because it wouldn’t go on forever. If you stick to a level of historical accuracy, it won’t go on in that form forever, because it didn’t back then. So, therefore, it has some kind of an end mark.
“But I think (the creative team) are far too clever A) not to know when that would be, or B) not to make it work within the framework of history.”
