Renewed: Birds Of A Feather
ITV has renewed comedy series Birds of a Feather following its revival, after a 15 year absence.
The series will return for another season of 8 episodes in 2015, its eleventh overall.
The 2014 revival, which followed a 15 year absence of the show, saw original Essex girls Sharon (Pauline Quirke), Tracey Stubbs (Linda Robson) and Dorien Green (Lesley Joseph), who reinvented herself as racy novelist Foxy Cohen.
Launching to 9.5 million viewers, it was ITV’s most successful comedy launch in over a decade after the broadcaster has been struggling to establish a comedy hit of late.
“We’re delighted Birds of a Feather was such a success on ITV and really pleased to be asked to write another series”, said co-creator Maurice Gran. “We hope the further adventures of Sharon, Tracey and Dorien will continue to thrill audiences young and old.”
The revival is yet to air in Australia.
