Sky’s comedy about the relentlessness of parenting will be back for another block of episodes…
Sky has renewed parenting series Breeders for another season. The show was created by Martin Freeman, Chris Addison and Simon Blackwell for Sky and FX, and Freeman also stars alongside Daisy Haggard.
“We’re absolutely thrilled that FX and Sky have decided to let us torture Paul and Ally a bit more with another season of parenting trauma,” Addison said in a statement. “That’s entirely because we’ve got more of the story we’re excited to tell and definitely not just because it’s basically free therapy for us. I flatly deny that.”
Nick Grad, President, Original Programming, FX Entertainment, added, “We are proud of everything the creative team and talent on Breeders achieved in the first season and look forward to seeing where they take it in season two. Breeders has really resonated with viewers, who’ve come to appreciate its honest and humourous take on the challenges of modern parenting.”
“So pleased we get another go at Breeders,” said Freeman. “I reckon the next one will be even better. It’s such a pleasure working with this team… we’ll see you all soon. Well, not soon. But at some point, honest.”
“It was a thrill to be able to make the first season of Breeders – FX, Sky, our production team, crew and amazing cast made it a fantastic creative experience,” noted Blackwell. “So to be able to explore even more parental struggles in Season 2 is the icing on a cake that we’ve checked carefully for any possible trace of peanuts.”
