Spring has sprung here at GPB and we’re ready to usher in a new season of British programming. Our spring lineup debuts next week, including new seasons of drama favorites and premieres from PBS, Masterpiece, and the BBC.
PBS’ Sunday drama favorite, Call the Midwife, returns for Season 8 with a royal announcement! Trixie, Valerie, Lucille, and the rest of Nonnatus House are thrilled to welcome the Queen’s Royal Birth while keeping up with the trends and changes that 1964 brings to Poplar. This season continues themes of diversity and immigration but adds new storylines focusing on teen pregnancy, abortions, and STDs. But despite the various births and shifting family dynamics in their patients, the midwives find new love and uncover family secrets, forcing them to consider their professional responsibilities in relation to personal beliefs. Season 8 of Call the Midwife premieres Sunday, March 31 at 7 p.m.
