Birds of a Feather Returns to ITV after 15 Years

Birds of a Feather returns to ITV after 15 years!  Eight episodes will be filmed later this year, and the emphasis will be on the wives, not the husbands. The husbands have become somewhat irrelevant we are told. Hmmm… makes me feal loved and wanted!  Well, let’s learn more about Birds of a Feather’s glorious return.

Birds of a Feather

Birds Of A Feather is coming back to television after ITV signed up the original cast for a new series.

The sitcom, which originally ran on the BBC from 1989 to 1998, starred Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson as sisters sharing a mansion in the upmarket Essex town of Chigwell after their husbands were sent to prison.

The two stars will be joined by Lesley Joseph – who played man-eater Dorien Green – in the revival which will be written by the show’s creators, Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.

An ITV spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that we have commissioned a new series of Birds Of A Feather and we’re really excited to be welcoming Sharon, Tracey and Dorien to ITV. We will confirm more details in due course.”

The Mirror reported last July that that programme was set to make a small screen comeback after a hugely successful theatre tour of the show.

At the time, Lesley said: “They are in talks to bring back the television show, with the three of us, as it wouldn’t work with anybody else and I’d absolutely love to do it.

Pauline, Linda and I have loved the stage show. It’s a very unique bond that we have and it has been simply glorious to be a part of, it really has. We’ve had a fantastic time.

“We have packed out every night on the road and most evenings we’ve been getting a standing ovation. It’s like we’ve never been away.”
