Brassic’s back: Sky commissions Northern comedy for record-equalling seventh series

Brassic has been greenlit for a seventh series, making the hit Northern comedy Sky’s joint-longest-running scripted comedy alongside Trollied.

The show is expected to hit the 50 episodes milestone with Series 7, with Series 6 set to launch later this year on Sky Max and NOW TV.

The comedy follows the lives of co-creator Joe Gilgun’s character Vinnie O’Neill and his friends in the fictional Northern town of Hawley, scraping a living while committing various petty crimes.

Although cast details, episode count and the writing team for the forthcoming series have yet to be confirmed, previous principal cast members have included Michelle Keegan, Dominic West, Damien Molony, Tom Hanson, Aaron Heffernan, Ryan Sampson, Parth Thakerar, Bronagh Gallagher, Joanna Higson and Steve Evets.

Co-creator Danny Brocklehurst said: “’Season seven! How did this happen?!? Brassic is a delight to make and it’s a privilege to create more chaos for our loyal and loving audience.”

Alex Moody, head of comedy commissioning, Sky Studios said: “We couldn’t be happier that Vinnie and the gang will return for another raucous ride, bringing heart, laughs and FarmerhJim’s unrivalled swear-count back to Sky for a seventh series.”

David Livingstone, Calamity Films added: “It’s a great treat to be commissioned for a 50th hour of the madness that is Brassic. All of us cannot wait.”

BAFTA-nominated Brassic is produced by Calamity Films and co-created by Joseph Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst.
