Sky comedy Brassic, has been commissioned for a second series ahead of the premier of the first series.
The new comedy drama made by Calamity Films is co-created by Joseph Gilgun and BAFTA-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst,
The new second series of the comedy drama will see all members of Vinnie’s (Gilgun) gang of friends reunited in the fictious rural Lancashire town of Hawley.
Joining Gilgun, the returning cast will include single mum Erin (Michelle Keegan), Vinnie’s best mate Dylan (Damien Molony), Cardi (Tom Hanson), Ash (Aaron Heffernan), Tommo (Ryan Sampson), and garage owner JJ (Parth Thakerar).
Series two will see new faces join the cast including John Thomson (Cold Feet) and Bill Paterson (Fleabag) as well as the return of Dominic West as Vinnie’s blundering GP. It will pick up with the friends a few months after the events that took place in the finale of series one.
Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios, said, “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!”
Joseph Gilgun, co-creator of Brassic said: “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. There’s definitely no second album syndrome and I’m confident series two is going to be even better than series one.”
Danny Brocklehurst, co-creator & writer, said: “It’s a rare privilege to be gifted a second series before the first has aired. 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.”
The second series of Brassic was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content, Sky UK and Ireland, and Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios.
The Sky original is produced by Calamity Films. It is executive produced by David Livingstone for Calamity Films and Jon Mountague for Sky. Joseph Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst are also executive producers with Mike Noble as series producer. Saul Metzstein (Block 1) and Jon Wright (Block 2) are directing.
