REPORTS: SKY COMEDY BRASSIC TO END AFTER SIXTH SERIES
Updated: Oct 9
A Sky spokesperson said: “Brassic has not been cancelled. The show remains one of Sky’s best performing original comedies. With a highly successful series five launch just last week, it is a firm favourite with our customers. A growing number of them continue to discover this award-winning series on demand and as it airs on Sky Max, Thursdays 10pm.”
David Livingston, Executive Producer of Brassic, Calamity Films, said: “The series isn’t being cancelled. We just released series five and the ratings are though the roof with a Christmas special and a sixth series in production. As the Brassic character Farmer Jim might say. ‘This is horse #*!!.’”
Hit Sky comedy Brassic, starring Michelle Keegan, Dominic West, Damien Molony, Tom Hanson and Aaron Heffernan, will reportedly end after its sixth series next year.
Sky told The Mirror no decision had been made beyond Series 6, which will air next year. Series 5 is currently airing on Sky and continues Thursday nights at 10pm on Sky Max.
A source told The Mirror: "Brassic is very unlikely to return after next year’s sixth series. It’s had incredible success, but the feeling among some of the cast is that it’s time to move on. Ryan was considering leaving after series five, but was persuaded to continue by the bosses at Sky...
"Michelle is also finding it harder to work her schedule around filming as she’s in demand for so many projects. Bosses now want to make sure the show goes out with a bang. They’re working on a final episode that will really shock."
In the current series, reeling from the dramatic events of the series 4 finale, Vinnie and the gang face big repercussions from their entanglements with the dangerous McDonagh brothers and powerful drug buyer Manolito.
With both criminal big-wigs now on his case, Vinnie needs to negotiate his exit strategy – and fast. But there’s a lot on his mind, especially as he’s still trying to figure out what the hell is going on between him and Erin.
Brassic airs Thursday nights with all episodes available on NOW and on-demand.
