Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph are heading back to ITV with a third series of Birds of a Feather.
The second series of the revived sitcom was seen by up to 5 million viewers each week and found the trio locking horns as they found themselves all living under the same roof.
Original writers Laurence and Maurice said: “We’re thrilled that the nation is still in love with Sharon, Tracey and Dorien and delighted that ITV loves them too and have asked us to write what will be the twelfth series of Birds of a Feather. We can promise more feisty fun with the original Essex girls.
“Birds of a Feather has a large and loyal audience and we’re really pleased to be bringing it back, a new series will start shooting later this year,” said ITV’s Comedy Commissioner, Saskia Schuster.
