Breeders, starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Hadid, debuted on Sky One early last month and became a hit with audiences. Telling the true story of parenting, the comedy series is an honest portrayal of what life is really like, taking away the normal stresses of life and taking care of your children. However, the show took a dark turn towards the end of the first season.
Paul (played by Martin Freeman) and Ellie (Daisy Haggard) have two children, Luke and Ava, who can be stubborn and tense most of the time. In addition to this, this couple has a hard time approaching parents, thinking about mortgage problems and full-time careers. During the series, Paul and Ellie finally decide to get married, but soon after the wedding, Ellie has to go to Berlin to work, leaving Paul to take care of the children alone.
Will there be another series of breeders?
So far, FX, the network that produced Breeders, has not yet announced whether there will be a second comedy series. This means that for now at least, the breeders are finished with just one season. However, the show ended this week on Sky One, so it may be up to the creators of Breeders to decide whether to renew or cancel it soon.
When it comes to making decisions about the future of the show, channels look at both viewership and participation rate to see if people are reacting to the show.
But if it relied on actor Freeman, there would be no question about whether the Breeders should get another series.
When the Breeders were first announced, John Montague, the head of Sky Comedy, said: Together they are bringing the kind of better comedy that our customers expect. Season 1 of Breeders is available to watch on Sky One.
