Brassic renewed for Season 3

Brassic has been renewed for a third season.
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, before Season 2 has even arrived on our screens, Sky has announced that Brassic will come back for more of trademark mix of the hilarious, ridiculous and deeply poignant.
Brassic 3 was commissioned by Jon Mountague, Sky Studios’ Director of Comedy and Zai Bennett, Sky’s Managing Director of Content, and will be produced by Calamity Films. It is executive produced by David Livingstone for Calamity Films and Jon Mountague for Sky Studios. Joseph Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst are also executive producers.
Brocklehurst says: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be doing a third series of Brassic, the response to series one was overwhelming as people took our gang of potty mouthed misfits to their heart. Sky has been truly amazing in its love and support and I can’t thank them enough for allowing us to go again.”
Gilgun adds: “I’m so grateful to everyone involved in the making of Brassic season 1 and 2, they’re some of the kindest and most resilient people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Each and every one of them friends. Also the public played a huge role, it’s very relieving to know your life story isn’t incredibly boring. I want to thank my close friends and colleagues and the creative team; David Livingstone, Danny Brocklehurst, Emily Bray and Dave Quayle. As for Sky, I couldn’t imagine making it with any other channel. Big loves Monty and Bennett!”
