Call the Midwife is one of the shining highlights from the BBC library and thankfully still gets regular updates around the world. Here’s when we’re expecting Call the Midwife season 9 to be on Netflix and if you’re in the United States, the confirmed release date for season 9.
The British period drama series has been running on the BBC since 2012 and will reach an incredible 11 seasons with the series commissioned up until 2022. but Netflix has been slightly behind when it comes to picking up new seasons. There have been points where the series looks to leave Netflix as it has done already in Canada.
For those unaware, the series is set back in the 1960s in East London and chronicles the lives of those helping to deliver children.
Thankfully, the series hasn’t gone the way of most series from the BBC in recent years in departing Netflix (at least in the US and the UK) in favor to more tailored services such as Acorn or BritBox. Just this year, we’ve seen the likes of Skins leave Netflix as well as BBC Earth titles and more.

Other Region Release Dates for Season 9 of Call the Midwife
As of right now, only Netflix in the UK and the US are streaming Call the Midwife according to Unogs.
The United Kingdom only just got season 8 added in early September 2020 so it’ll likely be a while before we see season 9 touch down. In fact, we’re not expecting season 9 to be on Netflix until at least mid-2021.
The good news for Brits is that you have two options to stream Call the Midwife so if you cannot wait for it to land on Netflix, all 9 seasons are available on the BBC iPlayer.
