Breeder on Sky One: what is it about?

Breeders returns to Sky One for a second series.

The comedy follows loving parents and exhausted people Paul and Ally.

They do their best to hide the fact that they are making their way through everything.

With Ava, who is now 10 years old, and Luke who is almost 13 years old, the couple must now face their increasing independence.

They also wonder whether their proven parenting style will still be around.

Spoiler alert – it doesn’t!

Martin Freeman co-created the show with writer Simon Blackwell and comedian Chris Addison.

In the new series, the time has moved on from where we left Paul and Ally.

Her son Luke is now 13 years old and daughter Ava is now 10 years old.

Luke’s growing fear and Ava’s growing independence add some new and unknown complications to the existing chaotic mix of stretched resources.

Meanwhile, Paul’s parents Jackie and Jim are older as well, which leads Paul and Ally to realize that they now have to raise both the generation above and the generation below …

The first series can currently be viewed on Sky One / Now TV.

The second series is broadcast every Thursday at 10 p.m.

The entire second series is now also available for Sky One / Now TV.

What happens in the first episode of Breeders?

In the first episode, titled No Surrender, viewers are reintroduced into the family.

The kids are growing up fast – Ava is 10 now and Luke will be 13 soon.

With their burgeoning independence, the question arises whether Paul and Ally’s parenting style still works …

Will there be a series of three breeders?

Yes, it looks like a third series of breeders is very likely.

Breeder writer Simon Blackwell recently announced that the third series of the parenting comedy is in progress.

He remained cautious about possible season three storylines but said the time jump helped freshen up the show.

He said, “It was like we were making it difficult because that’s where the best often comes from when you try to make it a little tricky.

“If there was a third season we’d want to make it as distinctive and ambitious as the first two.

“So there would be different things.”

The breeders are returning to Sky One with a second series on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 10 p.m.
