Good news for Seven and Australian based writer Mike Bullen, with Cold Feet‘s revival renewed for another season.
After a thirteen-year absence Cold Feet returned in the UK in September to critical praise. The series has been ITV’s most successful drama launch of the year with a consolidated opening episode ratings of 8.4 million UK viewers.
ITV’s Director of Television, Kevin Lygo said: “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.”
Mike Bullen added, “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.”
The series starring James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, Robert Bathurst, John Thomson and Fay Ripley, is airing 8:30pm Tuesdays on Seven.
