Staff Reporter | On 13, Feb 2020
Brassic will officially return to Sky One this May, and a new trailer gives us our first look at Season 2.
Sky’s most successful comedy drama in years is created by Joseph Gilgun and BAFTA-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst and takes its title from being “broke, penniless, without means, boracic lint -skint, on the bones of yer arse”. It follows Vinnie (Joe Gilgun), Dylan (Damien Molony) and Erin (Michelle Keegan), a group of working-class friends finding unconventional ways to win at life in northern suburbia.
“Joe Gilgun’s giddily entertaining series is funny, warm and fuelled by tight-knit friendships,” we wrote in our review of Season 1.
Now, just as Sky One renews the show for a third run, Brassic has been confirmed as returning in May. The new season premiere on 7th May. Here’s the trailer:

Brassic: Joe Gilgun creates and stars in new Sky comedy
21st August 2018
Joe Gilgun (This is England), Michelle Keegan (Our Girl) and Damien Molony (Ripper Street) are set to star in Brassic, an edgy new original comedy from Sky.
Co-created by Joe Gilgun and BAFTA-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst, the series is about a group of working-class friends finding unconventional ways to win at life in northern suburbia. Indeed, the show’s title is defined as “broke, penniless, without means, boracic lint – skint, on the bones of yer arse”.
Production on the show will start in September for Sky and NOW. Written by Danny Brocklehurst (Safe), it follows Vinnie (Gilgun), a Lancashire lad with bipolar disorder, and Dylan (Molony), his razor-smart best mate, are inseparable and utterly co-dependant. They’ve hardly spent a day apart since birth. But Dylan’s girlfriend Erin (Keegan) might just shake things up for good with her plans to leave town and start a new life for herself and her kid, Tyler.
Dylan is faced with the impossible decision between a fresh start with the love of his life or staying behind with his inseparable gang of mates that he can’t live without. This gang includes: Cardi (Tom Hanson), champion kebab eater and total liability; Ash (Aaron Heffernan), the son of a family of fighting Travellers whose fists can get them out of most kinds of trouble; Tommo (Ryan Sampson), the most sexually liberated man in Britain who doesn’t care what people think; and JJ (Parth Thakerar), a sharp entrepreneur who runs a garage (with a lucrative sideline in stolen cars).
These lads have dealt, scammed, bribed and conned their way through adolescence, but now, on the brink of adulthood, their dealing and stealing is catching up with them and a whole load of trouble is heading their way. Like a carefully stacked tower of cards, what happens if one of them is knocked down or, worse, removed from the pack entirely?
Gilgun, who can currently be seen in AMC’s Preacher, says: “I’m truly humbled by the opportunity. We’ve got an amazing team of creators and watching it all take form has been very moving. Bipolar is a big part of my life. We want to show that you can have mental health issues and in some cases live a productive, exciting life, full of adventure. Our writer Danny Brocklehurst and my friend David Quayle have been invaluable in taking this journey with me. Embrace who you are, decide what to be and go be it.”
Danny Brocklehurst, co-creator & writer, said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be making Brassic with Sky One. This is a passion project for Joe and myself and we have collaborated every step of the way to create an outrageous, funny, stylistically bold show that brings to life a rarely seen northern working-class world. This is a big-hearted show about life at the sharp end of modern Britain.”
Ruth Sheen and Tim Key are also set to star in the series. It is produced by Calamity Films and executive produced by David Livingstone for Calamity Films and Jon Mountague for Sky. Gilgun and Brocklehurst are also executive producers with Juliet Charlesworth as series producer. Daniel O’Hara (Block 1) and Jon Wright (Block 2) are directing.
Brassic will air on Sky One and NOW in 2019.
