‘Call the Midwife’ season 9: When is it coming on Netflix? Check out the release date, cast, plot and more.

The British period drama series has been running on the BBC since 2012 and will reach an incredible 11 seasons with the series commissioned up until 2022. but Netflix has been slightly behind when it comes to picking up new seasons. There have been points where the series looks to leave Netflix as it has done already in Canada.


For those unaware, the series is set back in the 1960s in East London and chronicles the lives of those helping to deliver children.

Thankfully, the series hasn’t gone the way of most series from the BBC in recent years in departing Netflix in favor of more tailored services such as Acorn or BritBox. Just this year, we’ve seen the likes of Skins leave Netflix as well as BBC Earth titles and more.



A normal season of Call the Midwife includes eight episodes plus a Christmas special, which is sometimes a two-parter.

However, to accommodate COVID-19 restrictions, there will only be seven episodes plus the holiday special, according to the report.



The good news is that for those in the United States, you do not have long to wait until Call the Midwife hits Netflix.

Season 9 of the show is due to  release on Netflix on September 15th, 2020

The United Kingdom only just got season 8 added in early September 2020 so it’ll likely be a while before we see season 9 touch down. In fact, we’re not expecting season 9 to be on Netflix until at least mid-2021.


The plot of the show revolves around a group of nurse midwives working in the East End of London in the late 1950s to deal with the pressures of their day-to-day lives while trying to cope with the changes in the world around them.
