OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
The critically acclaimed Sky Original Breeders starring Martin Freeman (The Responder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) and Daisy Haggard (Back to Life, Episodes, Black Mirror) will premiere its fourth and final series will air from Friday 20th October on Sky Comedy and streaming service NOW in the UK and Ireland, with new episodes weekly.
The final ten episodes of the Sky Original deliver a dramatic conclusion to the Worsley family story of parenthood. Martin and Daisy reprise their roles as parents Paul and Ally and are joined by new cast members Oscar Kennedy (Wreck, Ladhood) who takes on the role of their son Luke (now 18-years-old) and Zoë Athena who plays their 16-year-old daughter Ava.
It’s five years since we last saw the Worsley family, caught up in the dramatic events at the end of season three — Paul and Ally on the verge of splitting up, Paul’s parents Jim (Alun Armstrong) and Jackie (Joanna Bacon) in turmoil, Luke finding a new relationship and Ava mending an old one. Series four of Breeders brings the biggest parenting challenge that Paul and Ally have ever faced, as 18-year-old Luke drops a bombshell at Christmas dinner that will change everyone’s lives forever. No longer in Luke’s shadow, 16-year-old Ava experiences her own bombshell moment as she meets and immediately falls for the charismatic Holly (Jessie Williams). Paul and Ally continue to try, fail and try again as they face these latest parenting challenges, while also having to support the increasingly troubled Jim and Jackie.
The fourth series of the Sky Original 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. It is produced by Avalon and FX Productions for FX and Sky. Academy Award®-nominee and double Emmy® Award-winner Simon Blackwell is showrunner. Breeders is created by Blackwell, double Emmy Award and Directors Guild of America Award-winner Chris Addison and Emmy and BAFTA®-winner Martin Freeman, who also stars alongside BAFTA-nominee Daisy Haggard. Executive producers are Blackwell, Addison, Freeman, Jon Thoday, Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, David Martin, Toby Welch and Michael Wiggs. Addison is director of episodes 1-5 and Ollie Parsons (Man Like Mobeen, Hitmen, Revolting) is director of episodes 6-10. Kenny Tanner is producer.
The final series of Breeders airs weekly from Friday 20th October at 10pm on Sky Comedy with new episodes weekly.
All episodes will be available as a box-set on NOW on Friday 20th October.
