Get Your First Look at 'Call the Midwife' Season 6

Spring is almost here – which means it’s just about time for a brand new season of popular period drama Call the Midwife!

The new season premiered in the U.K in early January, and will begin its U.S. run on April 2. It will run on local PBS stations around the country through May 21. It’ll be paired with the final season of period drama Home Fires for a night of solid television all around.

In good news you might have missed during the Thanksgiving holiday: popular period drama Call the Midwife is going to be sticking around awhile. The BBC announced last week that the series has been renewed – not just for a single additional season, or even two, but three.

The medical drama follows the story of a group of nurse midwives and nuns who care for the residents of the economically disadvantaged neighborhood of Poplar. Call the Midwife, of course, is so much more than that though – really digging into the personal stories of all the different women involved. (It’s also great if you happen to need a good cry for whatever reason.)
