Disney’s FX has announced that the comedy series, “Breeders” will be coming to an end after four seasons, and the first two episodes of the final season will be released on the FX channel on Monday, 31st July 2023, with a new episode released weekly, with new episodes available the next day on Hulu the day after. Since this show is a joint-production with Comcast’s Sky, the international distribution varies between countries, with the show being available on Sky/Now in the UK and on Disney+ in Canada and Australia.
“Breeders” explores the paradox experienced by nearly all parents, the willingness to die for one’s children coupled with the near-constant desire to kill them. Paul is a caring father who discovers he’s not quite the man he thought he was. His partner, Ally, runs a recording studio, makes Paul laugh and has the ability to read a story to their children while she’s technically asleep. In this honest and uncompromising comedy, Paul and Ally are juggling full-time careers, aging parents, a mortgage, upheavals in their relationship and the unenviable curveballs of parenting their young children, Luke and Ava. When Ally’s estranged father, Michael appears on their doorstep, the family essentially takes on a third child three quarters of the time, but this one comes with baggage and opinions. Paul’s own parents, Jackie and Jim, are on hand to help out, but their generation does parenting a little differently.
In Season 4, things will move five years on from when Paul and Ally were on the verge of splitting up. The pair then face their biggest parenting challenge as 18-year-old Luke (Oscar Kennedy) drops a bombshell at Christmas dinner that will change everyone’s lives forever. No longer in Luke’s shadow, 16-year-old Ava (Zoë Athena) experiences her own bombshell moment as she meets and immediately falls for the charismatic Holly (Jessie Williams), as Paul and Ally continue to try, fail and try again as they face these latest parenting challenges.
The series starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard. “Breeders” is produced by Avalon and FX Productions for FX and Sky. Academy Award-nominee and double Emmy Award-winner Simon Blackwell is showrunner. “Breeders” is created by Blackwell, double Emmy Award and Directors Guild of America Award winner Chris Addison and Emmy and BAFTA-winning Martin Freeman, who also stars alongside Daisy Haggard who received a BAFTA nomination for her role in the show last year.
