This article covers a real-world subject which should not be taken as part of the Holby universe.

Series 31 is the thirty-first series of Casualty and aired from 27 August 2016 to 29 July 2017. The current series producer Erika Hossington revealed that they had big plans for the show's thirtieth anniversary, which fell at the beginning of this series. It was later revealed that the 30th anniversary episode was to air on 27 August, 10 days before actual anniversary. The series comprises 44 episodes - an increase from the previous series. The series featured a single-shot episode, something never done by Casualty before.

This series introduced a brand new title sequence and a slightly modified theme tune, although the changes to the latter were minimal. Richard Winsor left the show in episode 33 when his character, Caleb Knight, was killed off.
