ITV has confirmed that Cold Feet has been recommissioned for a ninth series.

Big Talk North will begin shooting six further episodes of the drama later this year in Manchester.

“As I keep telling myself, 50 is the new 30, so we’re delighted to be able to continue to tell the stories of these much loved characters, who many of us have grown up with - and we’re delighted to be shooting again in Manchester and growing Big Talk North’s drama output with Cold Feet as our flagship show.” said Kenton Allen.

Executive Producers for the series will be Kathryn O’Connor for Big Talk North alongside Allen and Managing Director Matthew Justice and writer and creator, Mike Bullen. The Producer is Jim Poyser. 

"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,” added Mike Bullen.

“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 The delight at being recommissioned has already been replaced by trepidation at the weight of expectation.”

It was commissioned by ITV’s Head of Drama, Polly Hill:

“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.”

Last year Big Talk, which was acquired by ITV in 2013, opened Big Talk North, based out of MediaCityUK.
