There’s some good news for ‘Cold Feet’ fans this morning, as ITV has confirmed that it’s commissioned another series of the show.
The recent reboot has been a huge hit with TV fans, with another eight-part series now confirmed to be in the works.
The episodes will go into production in May 2017, and writer Mike Bullen has shared his excitement, stating: “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 adds: “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.”
As well as proving itself by pulling in millions of viewers, the ‘Cold Feet’ reboot also won praise from critics for its handling of a number of social issues.
Last week’s powerful suicide contemplation scenes were lauded by critics and viewers alike, while an earlier assisted dying storyline also attracted positive headlines.
