Sky renews Breeders for Season 4
James R | On 30, Jul 2022
Sky has renewed Breeders for a fourth season.
The dark comedy, a co-production between Sky and FX, stars Martin Freeman (The Responder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) and Daisy Haggard (Back to Life) and explores the challenges of modern parenting. Simon Blackwell is showrunner, having co-created the series with Chris Addison and Martin Freeman.
Season 3 premiered last month and continued the show’s bittersweet look at parenthood, starting just days after Season 2 ended, as the Worsley family reeled from teenage Luke (Alex Eastwood) punching his dad, Paul (Martin Freeman). With Paul moved out and staying at his mother-in-law Leah’s (Stella Gonet) house, the season saw him finding the appeal of a simpler life while still needing to make amends with Luke. Meanwhile Ally (Daisy Haggard) had her own problems – with work, with early menopause and with her increasingly strained relationship with her newly adolescent daughter, Ava (Eve Prenelle)
Series four was commissioned by Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios and Tilusha Ghelani, Commissioning Editor, Sky Studios, for Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content, Sky UK and Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX Entertainment.
Zai Bennett, MD of Content at Sky UK & Ireland, said: “This uniquely honest and hilariously entertaining comedy about the pitfalls of parenting really strikes a chord with UK audiences. We’re in for a treat and thanks to Avalon and FX for continuing our partnership to see what’s next for the Worsley family.”
