Breeders to end with fourth and final series on Sky this autumn

Sky comedy series Breeders is to return for a fourth and final series this autumn.

Starring Martin Freeman (The Responder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) and Daisy Haggard (Back to Life), the show will bow out with one last set of episodes.

Series 4 of Breeders will come to Sky Comedy and streaming service NOW in the UK and Ireland in October 2023 with an exact release date to be announced.

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.

Alun Armstrong, Joanna Bacon and Jessie Williams will also feature as Jim, Jackie and Holly respectively.

A teaser shares: “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 and Jackie 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.

“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.”

Past series of Breeders is available on Sky Comedy and streaming service NOW in the UK and Ireland.

Breeders first debuted in 2020. In the US, the show is available on FX and Hulu where series four will premiere on 31 July 2023.
