“Delighted that we’ve got three seasons,” said series showrunner and co-creator Simon Blackwell. “One more and it’s a pizza. This is such a superb team to work with, and it’s a pleasure and a privilege to make the show. I can’t wait to see what terrible and brilliant but let’s face it mainly terrible things will happen to the Worsley family in the next 10 episodes.”
“Breeders” explores the parental paradox that you’d happily die for your children, but quite often also want to kill them. In Season 2, Luke (Alex Eastwood) is now 13 years old and Ava (Eve Prenelle) is 10, serving up brand new parenting challenges for Paul (Freeman) and Ally (Haggard). The season also starred Joanna Bacon, Alun Armstrong, and Stella Gonet
“Through two seasons, we’ve watched ‘Paul,’ ‘Ally’ and their children grow as a family in ways that are reassuring and sometimes concerning,” said Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Entertainment. “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.”
“Breeders” was created by Blackwell, Freeman, and Chris Addison. All three executive produce along with Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, David Martin, Jon Thoday, Toby Welch and Michael Wiggs. Ben Palmer is co-executive producer. Blackwell is showrunner. The series is produced by Avalon, FX Productions, and Sky Originals.
