Call the Midwife season 8 won’t be officially premiering until 2019 (following the Christmas Special), but we do come bearing good news: Filming for the latest batch of episodes is done!
In a new post on Twitter, actress Laura Main (who plays Shelagh on the BBC series) confirmed that production is done and now, the waiting begins (save for post-production and some various components that go along with that). Working on the show is a time-consuming and at-times arduous process, one that started a good six months ago. One of the strangest parts of this series, we imagine is having to film the Christmas Special in the middle of the spring, many months away from Christmas. Awkward, no?
As for what is coming up on Call the Midwife season 8, expect to see some of these characters moving forward following the tragedy at the end of last season. Many familiar faces are going to be coming back, but we imagine in the process, there will also be some newcomers who pop in here and there.
Unfortunately, we’re probably still going to be waiting for a long time to get the official Call the Midwife season 8 premiere date — that may not be announced until the other side of the Christmas Special. More than likely, it will be airing on BBC One in January, just as it will likely be back on PBS at some point in the spring. (This is the way in which most seasons of Call the Midwife air in the two countries.)
Rest assured, Call the Midwife season 8 is not going to be the final season — the series was renewed actually over a year ago through season 9. There’s at least one more year of stories worth to tell featuring these characters. Here’s a toast to that!
