Can you believe we’ll soon see the seventh season of Call the Midwife?! It’s been a long road for the ladies at Nonnatus House, but the gals have done it, and soon you’ll be able to watch brand new episodes of the series on PBS. The first six seasons currently live on Netflix, and if you’re a bit behind, you have plenty of time to catch up before Jenny and the rest of the ladies return for Season 7.

If you’ve already binged all the Call the Midwife that Netflix has to offer and you’re desperately craving new episodes, we have some exciting news. Netflix has revealed exclusively to Decider that Call the Midwife: Series 6: Christmas Special 2017 will be arriving on the platform April 24, 2018. So while you wait for Season 7 to move off of PBS and onto Netflix, you can celebrate Christmas in April.

The 2017 Christmas Special takes place in the midst of the Big Freeze of 1962, marking the worst English winter in two centuries. With a series of blizzards plaguing Poplar and just about everything under the sun going wrong, the community must come together to face the challenges of the unrelenting cold.

Call the Midwife is based on the memoirs of British nurse Jennifer Worth and follows a group of nurse midwives in 1950s and 60s London as they go about their day-to-day business and navigate their own lives in the process. The period drama manages to be moving, funny, and smart, while addressing a slew of important social issues like reproductive rights, homophobia, religion, sexuality, and more.

The full list of titles arriving on Netflix in April 2018 will be available Tuesday, March 20.

Call The Midwife might just be the most beloved show on PBS. The period drama follows the lives of the midwives, doctors, and nuns of Nonnatus House, a convent that provides necessary labor & delivery assistance to a poor London neighborhood. The series tackles difficult questions of class and morality, while also drawing its younger characters into a swoon-y soap opera.

Over the years we’ve met and said goodbye to Jenny Lee, seen Shelagh quit the church and fall in love, and even stopped by South Africa for a spell. It’s been a ride. And there’s more to come! Call The Midwife Season 7 will be hitting PBS very, very soon. But how soon? What’s it going to be about? And who is the new midwife at Nonnatus House? Here’s everything we know so far about Call The Midwife Season 7.

(Also, this is for American viewers. We know you’ve already seen it, England!)

When Does Call The Midwife Season 7 Come Out?

Season 7 is due to premiere stateside on PBS on Sunday, March 25 at 8 PM.

FYI: The first two episodes of the season will air back-to-back that night, so you’ll get double the drama.

Is There A New Midwife This Season?

Yes! Leonie Elliott is joining the cast as Lucille Anderson, a West Indian midwife. Even though her colleagues at Nonnatus House welcome her, Lucille will sadly experience racism from some of her patients.

Where Can I Catch Up Before Season 7?

The first six seasons of Call The Midwife are all available to stream on Netflix.

Call the Midwife season 7 has been out for a while now and with Netflix being many people’s main method of watching the British show, you’ll want to know when the next season will arrive on Netflix. Have no fear as we can reveal that season 7 is coming to Netflix in September 2018.

Call the Midwife follows the nurses, midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best possible care.

Following the Second World War, the east end of London was poverty-stricken and people were living in slums; many of the inhabitants were still untrusting of the free National Health Service. And, of course, modern medical techniques were a long way off. The midwives live and work in this community and the series tells the heartwarming stories of the developing relationships between themselves, the nuns in the convent and their patients.

Amidst the most difficult circumstances, Call the Midwife offers plenty of gentle humor and morality tales.

What to expect in Season 7

We’re entering modern times with new innovations and Nonnatus House welcomes its newest midwife, Lucille Anderson, to start 1963.

It’s a new era with the introduction of birth control and the sexual revolution. We’ll see plenty of new situations, including men in motherhood classes!

Other contemporary issues including abortion, birth defects, poverty, prostitution, incest, religion, racism, alcoholism, disability, homosexuality and female genital mutilation are still debated strongly in this new season.

Netflix Release Date

It has now been announced that season 7 of Call the Midwife will be coming to Netflix in September 2018 on September 10th.

While you are waiting:

Call the Midwife: Series 6: Christmas Special Arrives in April

If you’re desperately waiting for those new episodes, relief is in sight! The Series 6 Christmas Special will be arriving April 24, 2018. It takes place in the midst of the Big Freeze of 1962. As the year closes, blizzards hit Poplar and the community must come together to survive the storm. A Netflix gift to you in April!

‘Call The Midwife’ Season 7 Will Be On Netflix Before You Know It

There was a birth, a death, and a wedding in the Season 6 finale of Call the Midwife. A cliffhanger-y season finale, it definitely left fans wanting more and wondering when Season 7 would premiere on Netflix — especially those who rely on Netflix to stream the show. Now that the most recent season has come and gone on BBC One and PBS, Romper can exclusively reveal that Call the Midwife Season 7 will be on Netflix in September. Netflix will unveil the full list of shows and movies coming to the streamer on August 22.

Ahead of the Season 7 premiere on TV, Jenny Agutter, who plays Sister Julienne, spoke to BT TV about what to expect from the newest season of the period drama. “Each year presents something different in the way of problems and social changes,” she said. “So, we have a stripper who gets pregnant. We’ve got somebody who is very frightened of giving birth, which is a very particular condition.”

Fans can also expect a few tear-jerker moments when it comes to the beloved Sister Monica Joan. “I’ve created a storyline for which is to do with her failing eyesight,” Call the Midwife creator and writer Heidi Thomas told the outlet. “That’s given us quite a slow journey across the body of this series, because it’s realistic. And I love writing about her.”

As long as you’ve avoided spoilers so far, then there’s plenty to look forward to on Netflix come September.


Over the show’s seven season run, Call the Midwife has covered all kinds of social and political issues relevant to the time period that are still important today. Those topics have included birth control, domestic violence, and female genital mutilation. And every time a new issue is introduced in the show, there are ways that people even today can relate to them. Perhaps this is why the show has done so well and continues to do so well after seven seasons on the air.

Since Call the Midwife premiered in 2012, it has taken home multiple TV Quick Awards in the U.K. as well as several BAFTA awards. In fact, the series has done so well that before Season 6 even premiered, Deadline reported that the show had been renewed for Seasons 7, 8, and 9 all at once. It’s not a brand new concept for networks to renew successful shows several seasons in advance, but it does show how much success Call the Midwife has had.


In addition to old favorites, fans can expect to see a new face going into Season 7. Black Mirror’s Leonie Elliott plays Lucille Anderson, a new nurse at the Nonnatus House. The Lucille Anderson character was born in Jamaica, and was the first West Indian midwife featured as a full-time character on the show.

While Call the Midwife Season 7 will be on Netflix in September, it first premiered on BBC One on January 21 and the Season 7 finale was March 11. If you’re waiting for the show to premiere on Netflix, you may be a little behind the times when it comes to all the action and drama, but you’ll be able to marathon all eight episodes in one go. Which means I’ve got an exciting weekend ahead of me, for sure.

Do you love BBC shows on Netflix? Soon you may need to find a new place to watch shows like Frozen Planet, Planet Earth, Call The Midwife, and more.

According to Discovery CEO, their deal with the BBC to launch a new streaming service in 2020 will mean all BBC content will be leaving Netflix. This was announced during a conversation with a Wall Street analyst about Netflix and Hulu moving into areas traditionally dominated by Discovery. “Yes, Hulu’s doing a few food shows and Netflix does some stuff, and a little bit of natural history. But all of the BBC content is coming off Netflix.” Said CEO David Zaslav.

The good news is the BBC has also announced it is offering some of its content for free to Pluto TV. Even some content that is not on Netflix will soon be free including the Antique Road Show and classic Doctor Who episodes.

Exactly when this will happen is unknown. Though it is likely to happen before the 2020 launch of the new Discovery/BBC streaming service. For now though BBC content is still available on Netflix at this time.

Contains spoilers for Call The Midwife season 7.

Great news just in for fans of Call The Midwife partial to-rewatching old episodes before the highly-anticipated ninth season arrives on the BBC next year.

Call The Midwife revealed the exciting news that very soon, series seven will be available to stream on Netflix.

“Great news for you Netflix fans out there! Just to let you know that our acclaimed and heart-rending series 7 will be available to view on Netflix UK from Wednesday 11 September!!” the programme said on Facebook.

The series aired on BBC One in early 2018 and saw the introduction of new midwife Lucille, played by Leonie Elliott. As well as following Lucille settling into Nonnatus House, the series gave us a shocking twist with the death of beloved Nurse Barbara (Charlotte Ritchie) at the end of the season.

The addition of series seven to Netflix on 11 September means fans can watch the hit drama from the very beginning right through to just before the most recent season eight.

The exciting news comes as the upcoming ninth series is underway in filming.

The BBC has shared a synopsis for the Christmas special and beyond.

“This year’s Christmas special will see the team take their work to the Outer Hebrides. Led by Mother Mildred, they embark on a trip to the remote yet idyllic Scottish island, where residents have a desperate need for nurses and midwives. Exposed to the elements, they operate in bleak conditions with limited access to water and electricity to help their patients, just in time to reconvene in Poplar for Christmas.

“Opening with the funeral of Winston Churchill in January 1965, series nine then continues with Nonnatus House entering a bold and innovative era. As the tower blocks multiply, and a new East End rises from the ashes of the old, society becomes more prosperous, but more complex. Our familiar team of medics and midwives face unexpected challenges as the population shifts, rules change, and old diseases come back to haunt them. Alongside the joy and optimism of birth, they must cope with cases including diphtheria, drug abuse, cancer, tuberculosis, and fistula. Meanwhile, their own experiences are fuelled by love, loss, and doubt – and the very fabric of their lives is jeopardised when Nonnatus itself comes under threat of demolition,” the channel said.

Heidi Thomas added: “After a magical Christmas experience in the Hebrides featuring wild seas, stormy skies and some very disobedient sheep, we return to the harsher reality of city life in 1965. Society is changing fast and in series nine we will see Nonnatus House shaken to its foundations.”

Movies and TV shows leaving Netflix

A massive 120 films and TV shows are set to expire, so cash in your annual leave and prepare for the binge session of a lifetime

How I Met Your Mother (March 23)

No matter how much the final season infuriated us all, HIMYM was Friends with Neil Patrick Harris and endless running gags, and it will be sorely missed. Have one final legendary night with Barney and crank Let’s Go to the Mall as it leaves your Netflix queue.

The Client List (March 30)

Based on gripping true events, Jennifer Love Hewitt dazzles in this series about a massage parlour with “extra” services, dirty cops and a healthy dose of Texan hospitality. MAFS has got nothing on the drama this show thrives on so check it out before it’s gone.

Call the Midwife (March 30)

One of the dozens of BBC shows getting the axe, Call the Midwife was a worldwide sensation that tackled some very confronting issues. This period drama follows the lives of midwives in 1950s England, and with a cast including Jessica Raine and Miranda Hart is more than worth a watch.

The Office UK (March 30)

A show that started a cult following, Ricky Gervais captivated and thoroughly creeped out the world with his unique style of comedy and characters. We have all known a Gareth that you just can’t shake, and a David you have to smile through gritted teeth at because he is your superior. Re-live every cringeworthy moment on Netflix before it’s gone.

Misfits (March 30)

Just an ordinary group of community service delinquents who get hit by a storm and develop a bizarre range of superpowers, from invisibility to chronic seduction abilities. Yes that is Robert Sheehan from The Umbrella Academy, and yes it is just as epic as that current flavour of the season.
