FX and Sky One have renewed Breeders, a dark comedy series about parenthood in London, for a fourth season. Breeders stars Emmy Award-winning Martin Freeman (Sherlock) and Daisy Haggard (Back to Life). The renewal comes eight days after the series concluded its third season at FX.
Freeman co-created Breeders and partially based the series on his own parenting experiences. Other co-creators include Emmy Award winner Chris Addison (Veep) and Academy Award nominee Simon Blackwell (In the Loop), who also serves as showrunner. The three creators executive produce the series alongside Richard Allen-Turner (Catastrophe), Rob Aslett (Starstruck), David Martin (Flatbush Misdemeanors), Jon Thoday (Everything’s Gonna Be Okay), Toby Welch (Skins), and Michael Wiggs (Two for Joy).
“Breeders has given us the special opportunity to watch the ‘Worsley’ family grow with each season,” stated Nick Grad, FX President of Original Programming, via press release. “FX is thrilled to order a fourth season that will bring the next chapter of this hilarious yet brutally honest take on being a parent in today’s world. Our thanks to creators Simon Blackwell, Chris Addison and Martin Freeman, the entire creative team, Daisy and the cast, the crew and everyone at Avalon, FX Productions and Sky. Their efforts are what guide and sustain Breeders, and we are happy to be part of that extended family.”
Breeders also stars actors Alun Armstrong (Year of the Rabbit), Joanna Bacon (Prime Suspect: Tennison), Alex Eastwood (Creeped Out), and Eve Prenelle (To Olivia). Freeman’s recent credits include turns in Peacock’s Emmy-nominated Angelyne and BBC’s The Responder. Freeman and Haggard scored Hollywood Critics Association nominations for their work in Breeders.
The first three seasons of Breeders are available to stream on Hulu and will soon be available in Latin America on Star+ and Disney+ via the Star banner in other territories.
