ITV renews Cold Feet for a ninth series
Cold Feet is returning for a ninth series on ITV. Ater three successful series following its reboot in 2016, the core cast - James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, Robert Bathurst, Fay Ripley and John Thomson - will all be back for another six episodes.
ITV's Head of drama Polly Hill made a statement on the shows renewal:
“We’re delighted to be returning to Manchester for more of Cold Feet. The audience reaction to the last series was incredible with many saying it’s getting better with age! We’re pleased to be working again with Mike Bullen whose moving, funny, complex and absorbing scripts are a joy to commission.”
The show's creator and writer Mike Bullen added:
“I think we were all overwhelmed by the amazing response to the latest series. Jenny’s cancer, in particular, seemed to touch a nerve with viewers. There are still stories to tell for these characters but I’m conscious that we’ve raised the bar. The delight at being recommissioned has already been replaced by trepidation at the weight of expectation.”
The ninth series of Cold Feet will air next year. Check out our interview with Mike Bullen here, which took place shortly before series eight aired earlier this year.
