Martin Freeman confirms Breeders will return for season 3

·2-min read

Breeders has just returned for its second season in the UK, but there's some good news: it's getting a third season already!

Appearing on last night's (May 27) The One Show, Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard talked about the latest batch of episodes, and the former finished off the show with an announcement.

"We're very pleased to say Breeders has been commissioned for another series, so we're doing a third season for those of you who enjoy it," Freeman said.

In a statement, Nick Grad – the president of original programming at the show's US network FX – said: "Through two seasons, we've watched Paul, Ally and their children grow as a family in ways that are reassuring and sometimes concerning.

"Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard are brilliant as the flawed but devoted parents and we are glad that they, along with Simon Blackwell, Chris Addison and the rest of the creative team and cast, are bringing the series back for a third season that will take us along for the next stage in this family's journey."

We won't spoil how season 2 ends since it just started in the UK (although it's all available on-demand on Sky at the moment) but it sets up a third season very nicely indeed.

Breeders is available to watch on Sky One and NOW, with season 2 episodes airing Thursday nights.
