Call the Midwife’s Helen George unsure of future of BBC show

Helen George Discusses Future of “Call the Midwife”

Helen George, known for her role as nurse Trixie Aylward in the beloved BBC series “Call the Midwife,” recently shared insights into the future of the show during an appearance on the Graham Norton Show with Waitrose.

Since its inception in 2012, “Call the Midwife” has captivated audiences with its heartwarming portrayals of midwifery in 1950s East End London, originally inspired by Jennifer Worth’s memoirs.

As the latest series unfolds, George delved into the possibilities for the show’s future, hinting at its progression into the 1970s. She remarked, “We’re going into the 70s, because I’ve just started wearing long collars and flared trousers.”

However, despite its continued popularity, George expressed uncertainty about the show’s longevity, considering its historical basis. I don’t know is my honest answer,” she admitted. “Whether it goes on to another life form, I don’t know.”

Despite these uncertainties, “Call the Midwife” is confirmed to air until 2026, with plans for two more series and Christmas specials. George revealed, “They’re going to film again this summer and then next summer.”

Addressing recent rumors about her departure from the show to focus on her stage career, George clarified that she’s still very much involved. Responding to Norton’s question about Trixie’s fate, she affirmed, “No, no, not at all, I mean, the company is filming, ‘we’, the company are filming.”

Norton also teased about the on-screen relationship between Trixie and Matthew, portrayed by Olly Rix, to which George humorously responded, “see how long that lasts.”

As fans eagerly await the future adventures of Nonnatus House, “Call the Midwife” continues to charm audiences on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
