Mipcom: ITV has recommissioned another series of comedy drama Cold Feet.

The recommission was announced at Mipcom this morning by ITV Studios president of international Maria Kyriacou.

It follows the success of the reboot of the series, which is produced by ITV Studios owned indie, Big Talk.

The new eight part series will go into production on location in Manchester during March 2017, with scripts and stories once again written and conceived by Mike Bullen.

Mike Bullen will executive produce the series, alongside Big Talk’s Kenton Allen and Matthew Justice. ITV’s Senior Drama Commissioner Victoria Fea will oversee production of the second series from the Network’s perspective.

ITV said Cold Feet had been its most successful drama launch of the year with a consolidated opening episode ratings of 8.4 million and a 33% share of the audience. The first five episodes of the series have averaged 7 million and a 28% share. The penultimate episode of the current series airs tonight on ITV. 

First aired in 1997, Cold Feet won both critical and ratings success as well as numerous awards for its depiction of friendships, relationships, parenthood and love.

The latest series rejoined the characters in 2016 with stories written and conceived once again by Mike Bullen. 

Cold Feet is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
