FX has greenlit comedy “Breeders”, starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard, for a third season. The season two logline: “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). Luke’s increasing anxiety and Ava’s growing independence add some new and uncharted complications into the existing chaotic mix of stretched resources, lack of time and the fine art of winging it while looking like you know what you’re doing. Paul’s parents, “Jackie” (Joanna Bacon) and “Jim” (Alun Armstrong) are older too, as is Ally’s mother “Leah” (Stella Gonet), leading Paul and Ally to find that they now have to parent the generation above them as well as the generation below. And at the center of all this is Paul and Ally’s relationship.
“Breeders “is produced by Avalon (“Starstruck”, “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver”) and FX Productions for FX Networks and Sky Originals. Simon Blackwell is showrunner. Twenty episodes, to-date, have been produced.
