Birds of a Feather set for 2014 screen return

After 15 years apart, the original cast of BBC sitcom Birds of a Feather are set to reunite for a new season of eight episodes, set to air in January 2014.

A revival of hit 90s sitcom Birds of a Feather is set to hit our screens some time next year.

Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph are all signed up to reappear as Sharon, Tracey and Dorien respectively, when the show returns to television in 2014.

The series will follow the three women as they return to Chigwell and are reunited after 15 years apart.

The success of the Birds of a Feather stage show, which began touring the UK a year ago, has been noted as the reason to make a return to the small screen.

Linda Robson took to twitter to share her excitement about the show’s return, in her own unique way.

The hit sitcom, which followed two sisters, whose husbands were imprisoned for robbery, and their sexually provocative neighbour, ran for nine series on the BBC between 1989 and 1998. The comeback, however, is being produced by ITV.

Retort, the show’s creators, did offer the scripts for the tenth series to the BBC, but were only offered the commissioning of a pilot.

The show is due to air in January 2014 and will contain eight episodes. Filming is set to take place in front of a live audience in a London studio later this year.
