The BBC announced today that Call the Midwife has been picked up for Seasons 14 and 15. The British drama, which airs on PBS stateside, has released 12 seasons to this point, with Season 13 set to begin filming this spring. Today's early two-season renewal will see the show on the air through at least 2026.

"I'm overjoyed by the news that the doors of Nonnatus House will be open for a few more years!," said creator and writer Heidi Thomas in a statement. "Call the Midwife is the pride and joy of all who work on it, but it's our fantastic, loyal audience that matters most. We are a family behind the scenes, on the screen, and in front of the telly, and I'm thrilled that we're all heading into the 1970's together."

Based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, the series tells the eventful stories of nurse midwives working in the East End of London in the late 1950s through to the early 1970s. These nurses, midwives, and nuns juggle the pressures of their daily lives while coping with the changes in the world around them.
