Cold Feet is on the comeback trail after the cast agreed to reunite for the show’s 10th anniversary.
The drama was a huge hit for ITV in the 1990s, turning cast members James Nesbitt (pictured), Hermione Norris, Fay Ripley, John Thomson and Robert Bathurst into household names. It ended in 2003 after five series, with the death of Rachel Williams (played by Helen Baxendale) in a shocking car crash.
But a source has told the Sunday Mirror newspaper that the five remaining actors are ready to begin work on a special, one-off anniversary edition of the show, updated for 2007:
“Everyone’s on board and it has got the green light,” said the source. “The cast are all keen to get the old gang back on screen. It’s a matter of when, not if. A few ideas are being bounced around at the moment. They just need to find a story that brings the gang back together in 2007.”
More than 10 million viewers tuned into the final episode of Cold Feet, in which Adam (James Nesbitt) scattered the ashes of wife, Rachel. The show was one of ITV’s most successful formats and it would be a huge coup for the channel if it could pull off a reunion.
