'Cold Feet' will return to screens later this year after the original cast reunited this week to read through the script
'Cold Feet' is set to return to television screens in the spring.
The cast of the hit comedy drama, which came to a dramatic end in 2003, have reunited for the first time in 13 years to read through the script and discuss the forthcoming series.
James Nesbitt - who portrayed serial womaniser Adam Williams - said of the return: "'Cold Feet' was such a big part of my life. I can't wait to see all my old friends and find out if Adam is still as big an eejit as I still am."
The 51-year-old actor will be joined by his former castmates Robert Bathurst, Fay Ripley, John Thomson and Hermione Norris for the forthcoming series, while his on-screen wife Helen Baxendale won't be making an appearance as her character Rachel Bradley was killed in a car crash in 2003.
The eight-part comedy, which is being written by Mike Bullen and produced by Rebecca Ferguson, will take over from 'Downton Abbey's Sunday night slot on ITV after the period drama sadly ended last year following five years on screen.
Meanwhile, rumours the BAFTA-winning programme is to make a return first began to circle last year.
A source said at the time: "'Cold Feet' is coming back - the deal is very nearly done. Filming will begin early next year and the new series will be ready to go by next spring."
