CPTV is pleased to announce that the sixth season of the beloved drama Call the Midwife is on its way! New episodes will air Sundays at 8 p.m. beginning April 2, 2017.

The latest season of Call the Midwife takes place in 1962. Times are changing, from the introduction of the contraceptive pill and the shadow of infamous gangsters the Krays, to the new welfare policies introduced by the government.

Back in Poplar, Sister Ursula has been appointed the new head of Nonnatus House while the team was in South Africa, and Sister Julienne finds herself demoted and working alongside the midwives as an ordinary staff member.

As the midwives strive to help mothers and families cope with the demands of childbearing, disability, disease, and the social prejudices of the time, the residents of Nonnatus House must make choices – and fight battles – of their own!

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information and season previews!
