“Season seven! How did this happen?!?" said the show's co-creator Danny Brocklehurst. "Brassic is a delight to make and it's a privilege to create more chaos for our loyal and loving audience."

According to Sky, the series is the broadcaster's biggest original comedy, with season seven seeing the show reach the 50 episode milestone.

Alex Moody, Head of Comedy Commissioning at Sky Studios said of the renewal: "We couldn’t be happier that Vinnie and the gang will return for another raucous ride, bringing heart, laughs and Farmer Jim’s unrivalled swear-count back to Sky for a seventh series."
