The return of Sky original Brassic to Sky One and streaming service NOW TV has seen enthusiastic fans bingeing the entire series as a box set in record time for the broadcaster. To date, the new series has seen 5.9 million requested downloads.

The second series launched with a seven-day cumulative audience of 1.51 million for the opening episode, with more than 800,000 viewers completing the box set within the first fortnight of launch. Newcomers to Brassic also caught up on the mad-cap world of Vinnie (Joe Gilgun) and his unlikely gang of loveable Lancastrian rogues by binging on series one, with a further 2.8 million downloads.

The series, which is co-created by Joseph Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst, received widespread critical acclaim (see below) and Danny has been recognised for his writing with a 2020 BAFTA TV Awards nomination.

Gritty comedy Brassic is to return to Sky and NOW TV for a third series. The news has been confirmed before the second series has been transmitted.

Sky’s most successful comedy drama in years will be back with its trademark mix of the hilarious, ridiculous and deeply poignant. Co-created by Joseph Gilgun and BAFTA-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst, the series  stars Joseph Gilgun, Michelle Keegan and Damien Molony.

Danny Brocklehurst, co-creator and writer said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be doing a third series of Brassic, the response to series one was overwhelming as people took our gang of potty mouthed misfits to their heart. Sky has been truly amazing in its love and support and I can’t thank them enough for allowing us to go again.”

Joseph Gilgun, co-creator, said: “I’m so grateful to everyone involved in the making of Brassic season 1 and 2, they’re some of the kindest and most resilient people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Each and every one of them friends. Also the public played a huge role, it’s very relieving to know your life story isn’t incredibly boring. I want to thank my close friends and colleagues and the creative team; David Livingstone, Danny Brocklehurst, Emily Bray and Dave Quayle. As for Sky, I couldn’t imagine making it with any other channel. Big loves Monty and Bennett!”

Brassic 3 was commissioned by Jon Mountague, Sky Studios’ Director of Comedy and Zai Bennett, Sky’s Managing Director of Content, and will be produced by Calamity Films. It is executive produced by David Livingstone for Calamity Films and Jon Mountague for Sky Studios. Joseph Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst are also executive producers.
