Call the Midwife is well on its way to becoming the next Downton Abbey.
The popular BBC One drama, which airs Stateside on PBS, has been renewed for Seasons 7, 8 and 9, with a Christmas special included in each, our sister site Deadline reports.
For those unfamiliar with the scripted drama, it follows a dedicated team of midwives and nuns working at a convent in London’s East End in the 1950s and ’60s. The show is based on real-life nurse Jennifer Worth’s best-selling trilogy of memoirs.
