The popular Sky Original comedy, ‘Brassic,’ starring Joe Gilgun (who also created the series), Michelle Keegan and Ryan Sampson is set to return to our screens with its fifth season this month, as Vinnie contends with the events that saw Season Four come to a close.
The standout comedy series has been a viewership winner for Sky since the series debuted in August 2019, and the lives of main characters Vinnie, Erin and Tommo are once again a complicated mess thanks to Vinnie’s machinations - albeit, most of the time well-intentioned machinations.
“We’re ascending the ranks of lunacy, I think,” series creator Joseph Gilgun revealed during an interview with Sky. “The trouble with being a criminal is you’ve got to be confident. So they are taking on these bigger scams but at the same time, they go off and do these little gigs, like stealing bees. Not that that is easy, have you ever tried to steal a bee?”
“They f***ing hurt! I’ll tell you right now, dude, if you are a career criminal, you have to be adaptable. You can’t just be a car thief, you know what I mean? I only do car theft, no, you do everything.”
What is set to happen in ‘Brassic’ Season Five?
“Reeling from the dramatic events of the series 4 finale, Vinnie and the gang face big repercussions from their entanglements with the dangerous McDonagh brothers and powerful drug buyer Manolito. With both criminal big-wigs now on his case, Vinnie needs to negotiate his exit strategy – and fast. But there’s a lot on his mind, especially as he’s still trying to figure out what the hell is going on between him and Erin.”
“Can they ever actually be together, and does she really want to share this unhinged and dangerous life with him?”
