ITV has ordered another season of Cold Feet, following the success of the show’s recent revival.
James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst, Hermione Norris, John Thomson, and Fay Ripley returned to ITV last month for a sixth season of the comedy-drama after a thirteen-year absence.
The first five episodes of the new season have averaged 7 million and a 28% share, becoming ITV’s most successful drama launch of the year.
Cold Feet writer and creator Mike Bullen commented: “We all said we only wanted to bring Cold Feet back if we could maintain the standard previously set. I’ve been blown away by the show’s reception among viewers and critics alike. It has exceeded even my hopes. This recommission confirms that we didn’t screw it up. I shall take a moment to bask in the warm glow… Okay, done that. Now the hard graft resumes.”
ITV’s Director of Television, Kevin Lygo added: “It’s with some trepidation that you return to much loved shows, but Mike Bullen’s contemporary take on the five friends and their lives has been a wonderful thing, with every bit of the warmth, humour, emotion and chemistry that makes Cold Feet such a special, and hugely enjoyable drama. We were obviously delighted that the audience agreed, and we’re pleased to be able to confirm that Cold Feet will return again for a further series.”
Eight new episodes will begin filming on location in Manchester in March 2017.
Season 6’s finale airs at 9pm next Monday night on ITV.
