Revived UK sitcom Birds of a Feather will be back for more.
The ITV series starring Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph, attracted over 5 million viewers each week in the UK.
ITV’s Comedy Commissioner Saskia Schuster said “Birds of a Feather has a large and loyal audience and we’re really pleased to be bringing it back, a new series starts shooting later this year”.
Original writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran said “We’re thrilled that a nation is still in love with Sharon, Tracey and Dorien and delighted that ITV loves them too and have asked us to write what will be the twelfth series of Birds of a Feather.” We can promise more feisty fun with the Essex girls”.
The comedy was originally broadcast from 1989 to 1998 before being revived in 2014.
Latest episodes are currently airing in Australia on UKTV.
