Cold Feet Reunion
The cast of BAFTA winning comedy drama Cold Feet – James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst, Hermione Norris, John Thomson, and Fay Ripley – were reunited today as production commenced on the new series for ITV.
The nation’s love affair with Cold Feet began in 1997 when the television audience was first introduced to friends Adam and Rachel, Pete and Jenny, Karen and David. Thirty-three episodes and five series later and our favourite couples had earned themselves a place in television history. We will rejoin the characters in 2016 with stories written and conceived once again by Mike Bullen.
Speaking about his return to the role of Pete, John Thomson said today:
"I’m delighted to be part of the new series of Cold Feet. Since it finished almost 13 years ago, the demand for its return from the general public has been overwhelming. It’s fantastic to deliver such a brilliant show to an audience who hold it so dear to their hearts," he added.
James Nesbitt, saw the funny side of reprising his role as Adam:
"Cold Feet was such a big part of my life. I can't wait to see all my old friends and find out if Adam is still as big an eejit as I still am."
Undoubtedly one of the UK’s most popular comedy dramas, Cold Feet achieved both critical and ratings success as well as numerous awards for its truthful depiction of friendships, relationships, parenthood and love.
In this new series, which will be the sixth for the cast, many questions will be answered. How has Adam coped without his soulmate, Rachel, raising their son, Matthew, on his own? Do Pete and Jenny still spend their evenings on the sofa, in domestic bliss? And what of David and Karen who had split up. With three children between them, are the ties that bind them still strong?
Creator of Cold Feet, Mike Bullen, added:
“This feels like the right time to revisit these characters, as they tip-toe through the minefield of middle age. They’re 50, but still feel 30, apart from on the morning after the night before, when they really feel their age. They’ve still got lots of life to look forward to, though they’re not necessarily the years one looks forward to!”
