The ladies of Nonnatus House are returning! Call the Midwife, the beloved BBC series that follows a colorful cast of nuns and nurse assistants delivering babies all over East London, has begun filming its 12th season.

The announcement is welcome news for Midwife fans, who watched season 11 end with many a cliffhanger (no spoilers here!). The show, which has been wowing watchers since 2012, will also return for a 13th season at minimum.

Creator, writer and executive producer Heidi Thomas shares: “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!

For anyone who hasn’t caught the midwife bug, the show is based on Jennifer Worth’s memoir, which recounts her time as a nurse in the 1950s in post-war East London. She describes her time in Poplar working as a midwife and district nurse, attached to a convent by the name of Nonnatus House. The show closely resembles the memoir in its early seasons, and while it has departed from the original storyline 11 seasons in, it stays true to many historical details.

While we wait for season 12 to drop, there are plenty of ways to catch up on your favorite nuns in the meantime. You can stream seasons one through 10 on Netflix, watch the entire series on PBS and purchase the series on Amazon Prime Video.

Plus, your holidays will be even merrier: The gals will also be a part of Christmas special. Additionally, fans will see the return of Nurse Trixie (Helen George) for the holiday special and all of season 12. George had previously been on hiatus to have her second child.

There is no official debut date, but season 12 will consist of eight, hour-long episodes like seasons past. 2023 is already looking good!
