Birds Of A Feather is set to return with a new series

We're so excited to hear that Lesley Joseph, Linda Robson and Pauline Quirke are hoping to return for a new series of the sitcom in 2019 to celebrate its 30th anniversary! 

Speaking to The Sun's Bizarre column 72-year-old Lesley Joseph who plays Dorien Green said: "We are hoping to commemorate the show next year with a new series. Discussions are happening at the moment. We think it would be amazing way to celebrate, we've started a petition.

"The producers are talking about it, after we did a Christmas special last year, the popularity has stayed for 30 years. The fans are keen for it."

Birds Of A Feather, which originally hit television screens in 1989, returned for its annual festive special last year on ITV. Despite fans being desperate for the series to come back on a regular basis, Linda, who plays Tracey Stubbs, has admitted that the cast were struggling to find the time to film a series.  

She said: "At the moment, they're (Lesley and Pauline are) both really busy because Lesley is doing 'Young Frankenstein' until August.

"But ITV have asked and hopefully - please God - we'll all get the time to do another series together but at the moment it's just the Christmas specials."

Birds of a Feather Christmas special 2017!


We remember festive episodes of Birds of a Feather from back in the 1990s, so we’re delighted to see the tradition has resumed.


This year, the one-off feature length special will follow our favourite characters getting up to all sorts of seasonal mischief.


We don’t have much information about the storyline as yet, but from the pictures it looks like a very festive affair – with plenty of silliness thrown in!


Birds of a Feather will air on ITV between 16-22 December, TBC. Pics from ITV.
