Brassic will return to Sky One and NOW TV for a second series, it's been confirmed.
Edgy new original comedy Brassic made its debut this week on Sky One and online NOW TV, where all episodes are available to watch immediately.
With its distinct northern flavour, Brassic is about a group of working-class friends finding unconventional ways to win at life in northern suburbia.
Co-created by Joseph Gilgun and BAFTA-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst and starring Michelle Keegan, a second series has already been commissioned.
Sky One says series 2 of the comedy drama will see all members of Vinnie’s (Gilgun) gang of friends reunited for even bigger and bolder misadventures around the fictious rural Lancashire town of Hawley.
Joining Gilgun, the returning cast will include motivated single mum Erin (Michelle Keegan), Vinnie’s best mate Dylan (Damien Molony), champion kebab eater Cardi (Tom Hanson), Ash (Aaron Heffernan), the son of a family of fighting Travellers, the sexually liberated Tommo (Ryan Sampson), and garage owner JJ (Parth Thakerar).
Series two will see new faces join the cast including John Thomson (Cold Feet) and Bill Paterson (Fleabag) as well as the return of Dominic West as Vinnie’s blundering GP. It will pick up with the friends a few months after the events that took place in the finale of series one.
Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios, said today: “I know when our viewers binge on the first series of Brassic, they too will fall in love with the world and the characters that Joe Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst have created.
"You can laugh and empathise with every single one of them and you will want to be part of Vinnie’s gang. The show leaves you wanting more, so that’s why we had to order a second series of Brassic before it’s started!”
Joseph Gilgun, co-creator of Brassic added: “We all feel truly blessed to have a second series. I wouldn’t know how to thank Sky for having our back like they have. There’s definitely no second album syndrome and I’m confident series two is going to be even better than series one.”
Danny Brocklehurst, co-creator & writer, commented: “It's a rare privilege to be gifted a second series before the first has aired. This recommission shows the amazing love and support Sky have given Brassic.
"We are all thrilled to be continuing the journey of Vinnie, Erin and the gang... and the plans we have for the second series are bigger, bolder and even more outrageous.”
Brassic airs Thursdays at 10PM on Sky One.
You can also watch and stream all episodes of series online online with NOW TV.
