But it’s not long to wait now, as the show returns this Sunday (January 7) for its latest series following the Christmas Special.

Call the Midwife began in 2012 and was originally based on the books by Jennifer Worth and her time as a midwife in the East End of London during the 1950s.

What to expect from series 13 of Call the Midwife

Series 13 is set to be just as emotional and moving as the series gone by but with some big changes for the show.

In the latest series, Call the Midwife is set to welcome two characters including the likes of pupil Midwives Joyce Highland and Rosalind Clifford.

However, there will be some familiar faces absent from the show, as Nurse Lucille played by Leonie Elliott previously announced she would not be back on the BBC show.

The star confirmed back in 2023 that she would not be returning after sharing a picture of a clipboard saying “farewell” and captioning the Instagram post “Over and out.”

Away from new and missing characters, the new series of Call the Midwife will see Nonnatus House start its new training scheme.

As the Radio Times shares: “One of the new arrivals has a baptism of fire when she attends a home birth where complications place the lives of both mother and baby in danger.

“Sister Julienne cares for an expectant mother who has cerebral palsy, and Reggie comes up with a plan to bring the community together.”
