Casualty gets a new home — here’s everything you need to know

Casualty is known to skip around the BBC1 schedules to make way for other programmes and events, and fans have been worried that with the announcement of UEFA Men’s Euro 2024, episodes of their favourite drama may be kicked down the road until a later date.

Happily, we can reveal that the series isn’t going on an extended sabbatical for the footie — it’s simply switching from BBC1 to BBC2 on some Saturdays!

This move also coincides with the start of a new 12-part chapter called Storm Damage.

Please note: This is a live document and will be updated on a regular basis.

Why is Casualty moving from BBC1 to BBC2?
The Euro competition is being hosted by Germany and is a month-long affair, starting on June 14 and finishing on July 14 2024.

Matches will be available to watch across BBC TV channels and ITV channels for the duration — check out Euro 2024 Guide.
