Call the Midwife wrapped its 8-season run on the BBC UK and the second episode of season 8 was added to Netflix in May 2019. Some are wondering when and where the rest of season 8 will appear on Netflix. Let’s take a look.
This BBC period drama has long been a favorite of Netflix. This series first aired in 2012. It takes viewers back to the post-WWII era, when the baby boom was at its peak.
Season 8 aired on the BBC back in December featuring a brand new cast and although it only once again consisted of eight episodes (plus the Christmas episode) you’ll be happy to hear it’s already been renewed for another three seasons!
Now let’s take a look at when season 8 of Call the Midwife should be coming to Netflix around the world:
On May 15, 2019, the first episode of Call the Midwife Season 8 was released on Netflix. Many people thought, as did we, that the entire season 8 of Call the Midwife was being released when it first was announced. That’s unfortunetely, not the case.
Season 7 of the most recent series, which was released on Netflix on September 10, 2018, arrived on Netflix. That means we’re once again expecting the remainder of the season 8 to arrive on Netflix likely in September.
The BBC catalog on Netflix recently saw quite a lot of removals thanks to the BBC’s shift to put its titles on the likes of Britbox. Call the Midwife, however, was not one of the titles that were removed.
Netflix UK is currently two seasons behind, with season 7 still not arriving in 2018. Given its release schedule so far, we’re currently expecting season 7 to be on Netflix in the UK in the middle of this year with season 8 not appearing on the service until 2020. That’s not entirely surprising given that you can still stream season 8 through the BBC iPlayer.
Canada and other regions should also get it by the middle of 2019.
Netflix Australia removed all episodes of Call the Midwife from its service recently.
