ITV has ordered Cold Feet series 9, with James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, Robert Bathurst, Fay Ripley and John Thomson all expected to appear. Here’s everything you need to know…
TV Wise reports that Cold Feet series 9 will consist of six episodes, which will be filmed in Manchester. The series will be broadcast in 2020. The previous season ended with Jenny undergoing cancer treatment while Karen and Adam’s relationship began to take root. There’s clearly lots of story still to tell.
ITV’s head of drama, Polly Hill, said this about the news: “We’re delighted to be returning to Manchester for more of Cold Feet. The audience reaction to the last series was incredible with many saying it’s getting better with age! We’re pleased to be working again with Mike Bullen whose moving, funny, complex and absorbing scripts are a joy to commission.”
The creator of the show, Mike Bullen, added this: “I think we were all overwhelmed by the amazing response to the latest series. Jenny’s cancer in particular seemed to touch a nerve with viewers. There are still stories to tell for these characters but I’m conscious that we’ve raised the bar. The delight at being recommissioned has already been replaced by trepidation at the weight of expectation.”
