by | Mar 6, 2014 | All, TV News

ITV has recommissioned a further series of its hit classic sitcom Birds of a Feather.

The revival of the sitcom has been attracting audiences of up to 9.5 million since returning earlier in the year making it the channel’s most successful comedy launch in over a decade. The series is currently averaging 8 million viewers based on consolidated overnight figures.

The past series has seen Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph revisit their roles as Sharon, Tracey and Dorien. We’ve seen the trio try to live together and have witnessed Dorien’s attempts at reinventing herself as racy novelist Foxy Cohen.

The sitcom’s co-writer Maurice Gran has said of the news, “We’re delighted Birds of a Feather was such a success on ITV and really pleased to be asked to write another series. We hope the further adventures of Sharon, Tracey and Dorien will continue to thrill audiences young and old.”

ITV’s Director of Comedy and Entertainment Elaine Bedell added, “We’re very pleased that the brilliant chemistry between these three great actresses once again attracted the large and loyal audience that Birds of A Feather deserves.  The writers and producers have done a fantastic job in making the show feel funny, fresh and relevant. “
