Series` background and cast
A legendary British comedy / drama television series that was broadcast on ITV for 5 series between 1998 and 2003, Cold Feet is back to great joy of its loyal audience. The series is created by Milke Bullen and is currently produced by Big Talk Productions, having migrated from Granada Television. Bullen executive produces along with Andy Harries and Christine Langan. The highly anticipated sixth chapter, the first one after after the 13-year hiatus, contains eight parts and premiered on September 5, 2016.
The series follows three thirty-something couples, their lives, their romantic entanglements, family lives, social and professional relationships. Among the issues that Cold Feet touched upon are abortion, adultery, divorce, separation, dealing with parenthood, parental death, drug use and sexual problems.
The new post-reunion series
The five key members of the cast – James Nesbitt (Adam), John Thomson (Pete), Fay Ripley Jenny), Hermione Norris Karen) and Robert Bathurst (David) – are reunited by the brand new series 13 years after the last broadcast series. Helen Baxendale`s character, Rachel, died in a car crash in the last series, and although the creators were ready to write her back into the script, Baxendale felt that it was not right for the show. The brand new series of Cold Feet began filming in Manchester in March 2016 and brings the viewers back into the gang`s life thirteen years after Rachel`s death, “as they tip-toe through the minefield of middle age”, as Mike Bullen put it.
Cold Feet has received over 20 major awards over the course of its first five series, finding long-lasting success with both critics and viewers, with over 10 million tuning in to see the last episode in 2003. The sixth series premiere drew an audience of 6.49 million viewers, trailing just slightly behind The X Factor on the week of its broadcast. The chemistry of the ensemble cast remains perfect, and while there have been no announcements regarding the future of the show this early in the series, chances of a renewal run very high.
