Birds of a Feather co-creator Laurence Marks has said that the show has finished for good.
After its original nine-year run on the BBC, the show was revived by ITV in 2014 and went for a further three years plus a handful of specials.
The most recent special only aired at Christmas 2020, but in a new interview Marks has revealed that he has called time on the programme.
"You move on. I can't imagine what more we could say. Also, the girls are very much older," he told the Daily Star.
"When we created Sharon and Tracey, they were kids in their 20s. They had a whole sexual life in front of them and the show was all about sex. Now they're women in their 60s, so it's a different sort of series."
Reflecting on the show's popularity over the years, he added: "It was a national treasure. People loved Sharon, Tracey and Dorien. And Dorien was a big hit with gay people.
"She became a Judy Garland of television. That was brilliant. We had touched the hearts of people who feel they're not catered for.
"I have a great deal of affection for Sharon, Tracey and Dorien. They are like friends in my life. We shared a lot of happy memories together."
At its peak, Birds attracted more than 19 million viewers in 1993.
