Netflix is home to a large selection of British series, including Call the Midwife. It’s seen regular updates onto Netflix since the series first aired in 2012 and as of right now, you can stream every single season of Call the Midwife on Netflix and have been able too since 2013. This has made Netflix an ample spot to watch the series if you prefer not watching it live on PBS who currently runs the show.
Call The Midwife, a British period drama is a classic example of the archetypal British style. The show is set in London's East End shortly after the Second World War. It follows the love and lives of the Nonnatus nunt midwives. Although the East End was a poor area, it was essentially a slum at the time. The expectant mothers show how stoicism helped the East End survive the war.
Call The Midwife is often funny and heartwarming, occasionally tear-jerking, but never moralistic. It touches upon class divisions, feminism, the relative naivety of the time, as well as other topics that are the basis of episode plots. It is truly a delightful series.
The past few seasons of the show have been always added in September and given the release schedule haven’t actually changed regarding the shows original release, we suspect that the same will happen this year too. Season 5 of Call the Midwife will be available in September 2016. It was included in the monthly preview last year so it is possible to expect the official release date sometime around August 2016.
As for a sixth season, a Christmas special and a full length season has been confirmed for early 2017 so we can expect a similar Netflix launch pattern for that season too but we’ll update you on that closer to the time.
