From Town & Country

Trixie, Barbara, Valerie, and the rest of the staff of Nonnatus House are heading back to PBS for an emotional new season of Call the Midwives. Here's everything you need to know before you tune in.

The official trailer is finally here!

The short clip gives a taste of what's to come for the midwives. Watch it below:

The show will premiere on Sunday March 25, 2018.

While season seven has already been seen in the U.K., it will first air in the States on PBS on Sunday, March 25 at 8 p.m./7 p.m. central. Better yet, the premiere will feature two back-to-back episodes.

This season takes place in 1963.

Coming off the emotional Christmas special, this season opens as the “Big Freeze” continues. The PBS website ominously teases, "Tested as never before, the nuns and nurses face challenging issues in 1963." Medical concerns facing the midwives will include everything from breech birth to cancer, Huntington's chorea, and cataracts. On a lighter note, upcoming episodes will also feature men in mothercraft classes.

Creator and executive producer Heidi Thomas called the show, "a love letter to community, family, babies, and the strength of women."

Actress Leonie Elliott will play midwife Lucille Anderson who joins the staff of Nonnatus House this season. According to a press release, "Her story reflects the experiences of Caribbean nurses who traveled to the U.K. in the 1960s to support the expanding National Health Service."

Many other beloved characters will return for season seven including Valerie Dyer, Trixie Franklie, Sister Julienne, Barbara Gilberty, Shelagh Turner, and Sister Monica Joan, among others.
