THE Larkins are making a "perfick" return to TV, and fans can't wait.
A new adaption of the classic Darling Buds of May is set to air on ITV and stars Bradley Walsh.
Where is The Larkins filmed?
It is understood that The Larkins was filmed in Kent, Surrey and London – but the exact locations are yet to be revealed.
The show is set in the Kent countryside near Ashford, but ITV are yet to confirm if the new series was actually shot there.
However, actress Joanna Scanlan who plays Ma Larkin told Metro in early 2021: "We have been filming for a few weeks.
"It has been an absolute delight to be in this farm in Kent and the cast are all brilliant.
"I know that sounds like what any publicist would want me to say but I genuinely mean it! They are all just very nice people."
As mentioned, The Larkins is inspired by the much-loved Kentish classic The Darling Buds of May.
ITV said that the mini-series won't be a remake, rather "a new adaptation of the iconic and much loved H.E. Bates novels".
Where was Darling Buds of May filmed?
The 90s TV show Darling Buds of May was mainly filmed at a farmhouse, in Berthsden, Kent.
The property, which is near the village of Pluckley, was used as Home Farm when the ITV show filmed there between 1991 and 1993.
The series also used the surrounding rural area as a backdrop for the Larkin family’s adventures, including the nearby Black Horse pub and the Little Chart cricket ground.
The ITV show, which ran for three series, was set in the fifties and was a huge hit in the early nineties, starring David Jason as Pop Larkin (whose catchphrase was "perfick!"), Pam Ferris as his wife Ma, and Catherine Zeta-Jones in her breakout role as the couple’s oldest daughter Mariette.
The family lived on a farm in Kent, with Pop Larkin constantly thinking up schemes to make the family’s lives better.
When is The Larkins on TV?
The good news is there isn't long to wait until The Larkins kicks off.
The show will begin on ITV at 9pm on Sunday October 10, 2021.
After each episodes airs you'll be able to watch them on the ITV Hub.
