It’s official: The BBC has renewed its popular period drama Call the Midwife for a sixth season, before a single episode of the drama’s fifth run has even aired. (They actually renewed it before the drama’s even aired its latest Christmas installment, if you want to be super technical about it.)

Season 6 will be comprised of a holiday special in 2016, and an additional 8 episodes in 2017.  This season will take the nuns and midwives into 1962.
