There are a few things worth getting into here, but let’s start off with the following: The folks at the BBC aren’t going to make you wait very long to see what’s next! The show is currently slated to kick off the new season on Sunday, January 2, which means you’ll get more of Nonnatus House in just over one week’s time. For American viewers, meanwhile, you’ll be waiting until March to see the show return — sure, it’s a bummer it’s not sooner, but it’s still earlier in the year than when we got season 10 stateside.
There are eight episodes in the new season and without further ado, let’s go ahead and share the official synopsis for the first episode:
It’s Easter 1967, and celebrations are underway for a colourful Easter bonnet parade outside Nonnatus House. Sister Monica Joan and Reggie are excited about the Eurovision song contest, while Cyril and Lucille settle into blissful married life. After taking some time away following the death of their newborn son, Derek and Audrey Fleming return to Poplar with good news – Audrey is pregnant again.
During demolition work at a nearby tenement block, the builders make a shocking discovery. The news ripples through the community, and the police are called in. The trail leads to someone close to home and has a heartbreaking effect on the team.
Just in case you were curious how soon you were going to cry this coming season, we now have a firm answer to it. They really aren’t going to make you wait long!
