What a frenzied state of affairs. The season finale of Call the Midwife sent fans into a frenzy, with a train crash teasing the fates of beloved characters. The good doctor (a.k.a. Stephen McGann’s Dr Turner) and Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) were injured and trapped, their situation growing more precarious by the minute.
Their lives were in jeopardy due to a head injury and a potential heart attack, respectively. As if that weren’t enough, the raven of doom had been ticking away in the backs of viewers’ minds like a ticking bomb, teasing the worst-case scenario.
Thankfully, the two survived unscathed, but the driver, whose pregnant wife was in the midst of giving birth, died in the crash. Meanwhile, Nonnatus House was left to deal with the chaos in the absence of Sister Julienne at the helm of their ship and Nurse Trixie Franklin (Helen George), who departed in episode five.
Nurse Phyllis Crane (Linda Bassett) jumped to the rescue, returning from her trip to save the day (and calm viewers’ nerves) with her cool demeanour. It was quite a bit, indeed. It’s best to refuel with a cup of tea and a biscuit while we discuss what the future holds for Call The Midwife.
Call The Midwife Season 12: When will it premiere?
Although the raven foretold of impending doom, there is nothing but good news regarding renewals. Not only has the BBC renewed the show for a 12th season in 2023, but it has also been renewed for a 13th season in 2024. (as reported by Radio Times).
Heidi Thomas, the show’s creator, writer, and executive producer, stated: “It’s an incredible privilege to be able to reflect on a decade of Call the Midwife while also knowing that our journey is far from over. We are overjoyed to continue for a few years longer!
“As with Nonnatus House, we have a proud history but an even more exciting future – one filled with familiar faces, new faces, higher hemlines, and new ideas. The stories we tell are similar to newborns – they never cease to arrive, we adore them all, and we promise to do our best for each and every one.”
Season 12 will consist of eight hour-long episodes and a holiday special. While 2023 may seem like a long time to wait, fans will be able to indulge much sooner, as season 11 will also include a Christmas Special.

Regardless of her recent brush with death, we can anticipate Agutter’s Sister Julienne making a season 12 return.
The perfect Mother's Day gift for every #CallTheMidwife fan ❤️❤️❤️

Sister Hilda (Fenella Woolgar), Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt), (Megan Cusack), Nurse Phyllis Crane (Linda Bassett), Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri), and Miss Higgins are all likely to accompany her (Georgie Glen). Nurse Lucille Robinson, played by Leonie Elliott, and her on-screen husband Cyril Robinson (Zephryn Taitte), are also expected to return.
The eleventh season of “Call the Midwife” Matthew is portrayed by olly rix, and Trixie is portrayed by Helen George.
That left only the vivacious nurse Trixie Franklin, whose mid-season exit was precipitated by a tough patch. Helen George’s character travelled to Italy in order to care for an ailing relative. However, this is all a ruse: Trixie is actually pregnant with her own child.
George stated the following while discussing her pregnancy:
“Because I was pregnant throughout the series, you’ll occasionally see me walking across the screen in unusual manners, sitting a lot, or wearing a lot of capes. “Additionally, it was not an appropriate tale for the character. Trixie’s pregnancy was unjustifiable. As a result, we attempted to conceal it as best we could.”
Trixie is currently on leave for six months and will return to Nonnatus House at a later date. Doctor Turner and his family, including wife Shelagh Turner (Laura Main) and son Timothy Turner, are expected to make a reappearance (Max Macmillan).
Additionally, we’re hoping to see more of single father Matthew Aylward (Olly Rix), who enjoyed a kiss with Trixie earlier in the season. Regulars Fred Buckle (Cliff Parisi), Violet Buckle (Annabelle Apsion), and Reggie Jackson (Daniel Laurie) have been a permanent fixture on the show, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon.
Call The Midwife Season 12: Plot
Call the Midwife’s creative team has confirmed the addition of new infants and drama. Pippa Harris, Neal Street Productions’ executive producer, stated (via Express): “We are overjoyed by the BBC’s confidence in us and look forward to bringing our dedicated fans more laughter, tears, and babies.”
Heidi Thomas teased about future narrative lines:
“Our stories are like newborns – they never stop arriving, we adore them all, and we promise to do our best for each and every one.” Trixie’s recuperation is almost certainly going to be a key element of the upcoming season, so fans may anticipate some character development in that regard.

McGann recently addressed Digital Spy and other media outlets on the show’s future: “The broadest statement I can make is that we are all quite pleased with the direction it is taking. It has, as we have constantly stated… I believe it follows a natural, broad chronology historically.
“It cannot continue indefinitely, as it could not continue indefinitely. If historical accuracy is maintained, it will not continue in that form indefinitely, just as it did not in the past. As a result, it includes a conclusion. “However, I believe that (the creative team) is far too astute A) to be unaware of when that would be, or B) to make it work within the constraints of history.”
We are fortunate that forever is at least two years away!
