Updated: 'Birds of a Feather' to return after 15 years for new series on ITV

By
Birds of a Feather will return for a new series on ITV, it has been confirmed.

The 1990's BBC sitcom is making a comeback after 15 years away, but will now be on a new channel.

Birds of a Feather Cast: Pauline Quirke, Lesley Joseph and Linda Robson


Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph will apparently begin shooting eight new episodes in September.

Creators Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran are thought to have approached the BBC for a return, but only a Christmas special was on the cards.

Birds of a Feather ran for 102 episodes on the BBC, and followed two sisters Sharon (Quirke) and Tracey (Robson) who move in together after their husbands are jailed for armed robbery. Middle-aged next-door neighbour cougar Dorien (Joseph) soon befriends the pair.

The three actors toured a successful stage version of the TV show last year. Lesley Joseph said that they were in talks for a TV return back in July 2012.
