Filming begins on Series 11 and the new Christmas Special of BBC One drama Call The Midwife.
To mark the occasion, the cast have released the following video...
Call The Midwife tease: "Rather than simply grab a traditional clapperboard photo from the cast, we asked them to send us their thoughts as they began to assemble – and this exclusive cast video is the result! They are SO pleased to be back – and all really wanted to express their thanks to you for your wonderful and continued support for our drama."
The Christmas Special 2021 is filming now, and will air during the festive season. Series 10 will air later in the year in the US, and Series 11 will air in the New Year on BBC One.
Heidi Thomas, Creator, Writer and Executive Producer, says: “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 favourites, 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.”
Pippa Harris, Executive Producer for Neal Street Productions, says: “We are all delighted by this vote of confidence from the BBC, and are looking forward to delivering more laughter, tears and babies for our loyal fans. Over the past ten years it has been an honour to see how warmly the show has been embraced by audiences around the world, thanks to the skilful writing of Heidi Thomas and the brilliant work of our cast and crew.”
Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, says: “The enduring popularity of Call The Midwife is a testament to the extraordinary love and creativity from its creator Heidi Thomas and its producers Pippa Harris and Ann Tricklebank. We are delighted to have secured the future of Call The Midwife for two further series beyond those which are currently in production, and look forward to enjoying more adventures for the inhabitants of Nonnatus House for years to come."
