‘Breeders’ on FX focusses starkly, honestly and comically on the challenges of parenting. The show is all set to return with Season 2.

In Season 2, the kids are now older, bringing a whole new set of challenges for the lead pair Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy Haggard). 'Breeders' was renewed for a second season in May 2020; Martin Freeman said in a statement, "So pleased we get another go at Breeders. I reckon the next one will be even better. It's such a pleasure working with this team...we'll see you all soon. Well not soon. But at some point, honest."

Production resumed on the second season on August 31, 2020, following a 16-week suspension because of the pandemic. Here's what fans can look forward to.

Release date

The second season of 'Breeders' will premiere on March 22, 2021, on FX for US viewers, and later in the year in May for Sky One viewers in the UK.

Plot

Last season, we saw Paul and Ally struggling with the challenges of raising two young children. 'Breeders' Season 2, however, sees the show moving a few years ahead. The kids are now older and the parenting challenges are now different. It sees Paul and Ally struggle with myriad issues from broken curfews, religious choices to veganism. We also see that Paul is disappointed that the family now just retreats to different rooms with different screens while he tries to figure out ways to bring them all closer.

Cast

Martin Freeman

It doesn't take Sherlock to piece together where we know Martin Freeman from. The actor's played some truly iconic roles over the years, including his role as Dr John Watson in 'Sherlock', for which Freeman won the 2011 BAFTA award for Best Supporting Actor and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie. Freeman's other notable role is that of Bilbo Baggins, the main character, in the three-part Peter Jackson film series 'The Hobbit'. In April 2014, he played insurance salesman Lester Nygaard in the dark comedy-crime drama series 'Fargo'. Freeman was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Critics' Choice Television Award for his performance.

The role that seems to be closest to Freeman's heart, as well as many other fans, is his role as Tim Canterbury in the mockumentary series 'The Office' which ran from 2001 to 2003. Since March 2020, Freeman has starred in' Breeders'. He is also the creator and executive producer of the series.

Daisy Haggard

Daisy Haggard is a British actress and writer whose international audiences will probably know best from her role on the Matt LeBlanc-starrer 'Episodes'. Haggard, who made her TV debut with 'The Ruth Rendell Mysteries', is also known for her roles on BBC shows such as 'Uncle' and the acclaimed dramedy 'Back to Life', which she also created and co-wrote with Laura Solon. However, since 2020, she has starred as Ally in 'Breeders'.
