Call the Midwife Season 12 Plot
At Nonnatus House, there is a lot of potential drama that could happen in the future. Heidi Thomas, the creator, and writer of the show, said, “The stories we tell are like babies. They never stop coming; we love them all and promise to do our best for everyone.
We know that Trixie is coming back, so there could be a lot of love between her and Matthew. And after Lucille and Cyril lost their baby last season, could they be lucky enough to have a baby this season?
Who is Returning to Call the Midwife Season 12?
Most of the regular Call the Midwife cast is expected to return for the new season.
Jenny Agutter will be back as Sister Julienne, even though she almost died in season 11. Sister Hilda (Fenella Woolgar), Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt), Nurse Nancy Corrigan (Megan Cusack), Nurse Phyllis Crane (Linda Bassett), Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri), and Miss Higgins are also expected to return (Georgie Glen).
Nurse Lucille Robinson, played by Leonie Elliott, and her on-screen husband, Cyril Robinson, played by Zephryn Taite, are also thought to be coming back.
Regulars Fred Buckle (Cliff Parisi), Violet Buckle (Annabelle Apsion), and Reggie Jackson (Daniel Laurie) are also thought to be back, as is Matthew Aylward (Olly Rix), who started dating Trixie last season.
Doctor Turner’s family, including his wife, Shelagh Turner (Laura Main), and son Timothy Turner, will also return (Max Macmillan). Stephen McGann, who plays Dr. Patrick Turner, told the Radio Times (opens in new tab) that there might be more familiar faces coming back to the show: “I can say that starting with the Christmas special, some familiar characters from the past come back in a very moving way.
“I think it draws again on its history, but as usual, there’s a lot of happiness at Christmas. But it also has a great story and making it has been a lot of fun.
Will Trixie Be Back for Season 12 of Call the Midwife?
Yes! It was announced earlier this year that Helen George, who plays Trixie Franklin and is a fan favorite, had started filming again after taking a break from the show in the middle of Season 11 to have her second daughter, Lark.
When we last saw Trixie on screen, she had put her new relationship with Matthew on hold so she could take care of her dying aunt in Italy. But Trixie will be back, and it is thought that she will be back for the Christmas special in 2022. Does this mean that Trixie and Matthew can continue their relationship from where they left off? We do!
What Happened at the End of Call the Midwife Season 11?
In the second-to-last episode of season 11 of Call the Midwife, a massive train crash put Dr. Turner’s and Sister Julienne’s lives in danger. Fans were on the edge of their seats as they waited to find out what would happen to the two main characters, Dr. Turner and Sister Julienne. While it was close for a while, viewers were thrilled to see both of them make it through the ordeal and feel healthy again by the end of the series.
A heartwarming moment was when everyone at Nonnatus House got together for a group photo. Nurse Crane even returned from her extended vacation to help get everyone in order and get them through the train crisis.
