BBC sitcom 'Butterflies' could soon return to our screens after stars of the show and the writer revealed that they are keen to produce the final chapter.
Writer Carla Lane and actress Wendy Craig, who played frustrated housewife Ria Parkinson, have both given their approval to a new series which would reveal what happened to the memorable characters.
Lane, who also wrote 'Bread' and 'The Liver Birds' said: "I always loved Butterflies and I have an idea for how Ria and (her husband) Ben might have changed over the years.
The hit comedy sitcom, which also starred actor Geoffrey Palmer as reserved husband, Ben, aired on the BBC from 1978 1983.
It followed the lives of the Parkinsons, centrally Ria, as she struggled with the demands of her family and years to escape the drudgery of her life.
Craig, who has also appeared in 'The Royal' said: "'I would love to find out what happened to Ria 25 years on. It would be great to get back together with Geoffrey Palmer, Nicholas Lyndhurst and the others."
'Butterflies' also starred Nicholas Lyndhurst as Adam, the youngest of the families' two sons, while actor Andrew Hall played the older brother Russell.
