ITV Renews ‘Cold Feet’ For Ninth Season

Cold Feet is coming back for another run. ITV has renewed the comedy drama for a ninth season. Six episodes have been ordered for season nine, which is expected to start filming in Manchester later this year ahead of a 2020 premiere.

Created by Mike Bullen, Cold Feet follows the lives of of three couples. The comedy drama series is produced for ITV by Big Talk Productions and stars James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, Robert Bathurst, Fay Ripley and John Thomson.

At the end of season eight Jenny (Ripley) was dealing with her cancer treatment and with husband Pete (Thomson) by her side, preparing herself for the long road ahead; David (Bathurst) was putting his life back together with the support of his friends; while Karen (Norris) and Adam (Nesbitt) were figuring out the boundaries of their burgeoning relationship and the impact it had on the close knit group.

“We’re delighted to be returning to Manchester for more of Cold Feet”, said ITV’s Head of Drama Poly Hill, who commissioned the ninth season. “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.”

“We’re delighted to be returning to Manchester for more of Cold Feet”, said Big Talk CEO Kenton Allen, who serves as an executive producer alongside Kathryn O’Connor, Matthew Justice and Mike Bullen. “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.”

While series creator and executive producer 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 The delight at being recommissioned has already been replaced by trepidation at the weight of expectation.”
