Sky has renewed its hit parenting comedy, Breeders, for a fourth series.
The third series is currently underway and winning plaudits, starring Daisy Haggard and Martin Freeman as the titular breeders: a modern day mother and father at their wits’ end.
The story is set just days after series two ended, as the Worsley family reels from troubled teen Luke (Alex Eastwood) hitting his dad, Paul (Freeman).
Paul has moved out to go and stay at his mother-in-law Leah’s (Stella Gonet) house, and although his life should be lonely, the peace and quiet does have its appeal. Sooner or later, however, he must make peace with Luke.
Meanwhile Ally (Haggard) has her own problems: work, early menopause and her strained relationship with her newly adolescent daughter, Ava (Eve Prenelle).
Gallows humour and glugging wine will only get them so far.
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. It’s fabulous news that we can announce season four before audiences get to watch season three on Sky later this month.”
Breeders is available to watch on Sky Comedy and NOW TV.
