Call the Midwife shares exciting season 13 updateBBC

Call the Midwife season 13 has officially started filming.

Off air since February this year, the charming period drama posted a couple of behind-the-scenes shots to its various social channels this week, with costumed cast members Cliff Parisi, Zephryn Taitte, Annabelle Apsion and Daniel Laurie seen having a ball on set.

"BREAKING!! It's official - Call the Midwife has begun filming for Series 13!!" the Facebook caption read.

"Actors Cliff Parisi, Zephryn Taitte and Annabelle Apsion were on hand to posing for our traditional clapperboard shot, while the marvellous Daniel Laurie (Reggie, pictured) was waiting in the wings to begin his year's work with the family.

"We have SO MUCH to show you - beginning with our Christmas Special - so stay tuned!! Call the Midwife returns with a new Christmas Special, and Series 13 in 2024 xx."

This update comes after Trixie Franklin actress Helen George admitted her "genuine fear" over being killed off the series.

"You never have complete control. Absolutely, it's a genuine fear," she said in March.

"You never know. And they might just come to a point where they think, 'Do you know what, we've got nothing more to say about your character. There's nothing left to do with you. So you're off'. It happens."

Call the Midwife will return to BBC One for its annual Christmas special later this year, with all 12 seasons now available to stream over on BBC iPlayer. Season 13 is on its way.
