ITV has recommissioned comedy classic Birds of a Feather for a twelfth series.

The sitcom stars Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph, as original Essex girls Sharon Theodopolopodos, Tracey Stubbs and Dorien Green.

The series produced by Retort and QuirkyMedia Stuff, and written by original writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, attracted over 5 million viewers each week for its most recent series.

ITV’s Comedy Commissioner Saskia Schuster said “Birds of a Feather has a large and loyal audience and we’re really pleased to be bringing it back, a new series starts shooting later this year”.

Writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran said “We’re thrilled that a 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 Essex girls”.

Retort Managing Director Jon Rolph said “We’re delighted the Birds will be back again on ITV for more adventures.  It’s a brilliant team and a privilege to be working on one of Britain’s most enduring and best loved comedies”.
