Breeders renewed for second season


Story by Jack Foley

HIT Sky comedy Breeders, starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard, has been renewed for a second season.

Created by Simon Blackwell, Chris Addison and Freeman, the series explores the trials and tribulations of parenthood through Freeman’s and Haggard’s characters, Paul and Ally.

Nick Grad, president original programming at FX Networks, said in a statement: “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 humorous take on the challenges of modern parenting.”

Freeman added: “So pleased we get another go at Breeders. 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.”

And Blackwell said: “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. So, to be able to explore even more parental struggles in season two is the icing on a cake that we’ve checked carefully for any possible trace of peanuts.”

Addison also commented: “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. 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.”
