Sky One has handed out an early second season renewal to Brassic. The pick up for season two comes on the same day that the show’s first season is set to premiere on Sky One and Now TV.
“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”, said Joseph Gilgun. “There’s definitely no second album syndrome and I’m confident series two is going to be even better than series one.”
Brassic follows a group of working-class friends finding unconventional ways to win at life in northern suburbia. The comedy series, which was created by Joe Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst, is produced by Calamity Films and stars Joe Gilgun, Michelle Keegan, Damien Molony, Ruth Sheen, Tim Key, Tom Hanson, Aaron Heffernan, Ryan Sampson and Parth Thakerar.
Season two will see John Thomson (Cold Feet) and Bill Paterson (Fleabag) join the cast. “It’s a rare privilege to be gifted a second series before the first has aired”, said co-creator Danny Brocklehurst. “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.”
While Sky Studio’s Director of Comedy Jon Mountague, who commissioned the second season alongside Sky’s Managing Director of Content Zai Bennett. “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!”
