The final series of Breeders comes to Sky Comedy on 20th October, 2023.
It’s been a long wait, the US enjoyed the series in July, but Sky have announced Breeders’ final run.
The series promises a dramatic conclusion to the Worsley family story of parenthood, as Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard return to their roles as Paul and Ally.
For the new series, another time jump ages up the characters and new cast members join to play the Worsley children. Oscar Kennedy (Wreck) is the 18-year-old Luke, while Zoë Athena plays Ava, now 16.
Here’s the synopsis for Breeders Series 4:
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 trailer is a short, eventful 30 seconds, with plenty of the glorious family dynamics we’ve accustomed to…
