FX’s “Breeders” Renewed For Season Four

Comedy Starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard Continues Its Bittersweet Look at the Madness of Modern Parenthood

All Three Seasons Are Available to Stream on Hulu

LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2022 – Breeders, the comedy series that explores the challenges of modern parenting, has been renewed for a fourth season on FX, it was announced today by Nick Grad, President, Original Programming, FX Entertainment.

The series starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard concluded its third season on FX this week and all seasons are available to stream on Hulu. Breeders will soon be available on Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.

“Breeders has given us the special opportunity to watch the ‘Worsley’ family grow with each season and FX is thrilled to order a fourth season that will bring the next chapter of this hilarious yet brutally honest take on being a parent in today’s world,” said Grad. “Our thanks to creators Simon Blackwell, Chris Addison and Martin Freeman, the entire creative team, Daisy and the cast, the crew and everyone at Avalon, FX Productions and Sky. Their efforts are what guide and sustain Breeders and we are happy to be part of that extended family.”

The series was commissioned by Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios and Tilusha Ghelani, Commissioning Editor, Sky Studios, for Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content, Sky UK and Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX Entertainment.

In Season 3, which concluded this week on FX and is available to stream on Hulu, Breeders continues its bitter-sweet look at the struggles of modern parenthood, starting just days after Season 2 ended, as the Worsley family reels from teenaged Luke (Alex Eastwood) punching his dad, Paul (Martin Freeman). Paul’s moved out and is staying at his mother-in-law Leah’s (Stella Gonet) house. He should be lonely but actually the simpler life has its appeal. Eventually, though, amends with Luke must be made. Meanwhile Ally (Daisy Haggard) has her own problems – with work, with her early menopause and with her increasingly strained relationship with her newly adolescent daughter, Ava (Eve Prenelle). Gallows humor and large glasses of wine only go so far in quelling the angst…

Breeders is produced by Avalon and FX Productions for FX and Sky. Academy Award(R)-nominee and double Emmy(R) 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(R)-winning Martin Freeman, who also stars alongside Daisy Haggard who received a BAFTA(R) nomination for her role in the show last year. Executive producers are Blackwell, Addison, Freeman, Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, David Martin, Jon Thoday, Toby Welch and Michael Wiggs.

Streaming Exclusively on Hulu

From Executive Producers Christopher Storer, Joanna Calo, Hiro Murai, Nate Matteson and Josh Senior

Starring Jeremy Allen White, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, Edwin Lee Gibson and Matty Matheson

LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2022 – FX has ordered a second season of its universally acclaimed hit series The Bear, it was announced today by Eric Schrier, FX Entertainment President. The eight-episode first season debuted on June 23rd and is available for streaming exclusively on Hulu.

Shot in Chicago, FX’s The Bear is a new half hour scripted series that immediately established itself at the must-see show of the summer and is arguably the most critically acclaimed new show of 2022. The Bear has a perfect, Certified Fresh score of 100 on Rotten Tomatoes, a “Must See” badge and Universal Acclaim score of 86 on Metacritic.

“The Bear has exceeded our wildest creative, critical and commercial expectations,” said Schrier. “We deeply appreciate the brilliant work led by Creator and Co-Showrunner Christopher Storer and Co-Showrunner Joanna Calo. Jeremy Allen White’s lead performance is spectacular, as are those of his co-stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce and Liza Colón-Zayas. We can’t wait to get to work on season 2.”

“We are so grateful to FX, our insanely talented cast, our crew who worked hard, fast, and in the dead of winter, not to mention everyone who watched. And we can’t wait to bring you all back to The Bear in 2023,” added Christopher Storer and Joanna Calo, Co-Showrunners and Executive Producers.

The Bear follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), a young chef from the fine dining world, who comes home to Chicago to run his family sandwich shop – The Original Beef of Chicagoland – after a heartbreaking death in his family. A world away from what he’s used to, Carmy must balance the soul-crushing realities of small business ownership, his strong-willed and recalcitrant kitchen staff and his strained familial relationships, all while grappling with the impact of his brother’s suicide.

The Bear is about food, family, the insanity of the grind, the beauty of Sense of Urgency and the steep slippery downsides. As Carmy fights to transform both The Original Beef of Chicagoland and himself, he works alongside a rough-around-the-edges kitchen crew that ultimately reveal themselves as his chosen family.

In addition to White, series co-stars include Ebon Moss-Bachrach (“Richard ‘Richie’ Jerimovich”), Ayo Edebiri (“Sydney Adamu”), Abby Elliott (“Natalie ‘Sugar’ Berzatto”), Lionel Boyce (“Marcus”), Liza Colón-Zayas (“Tina”), Edwin Lee Gibson (“Ebraheim”) and Matty Matheson (“Neil Fak”).

The Bear was created by Christopher Storer (Ramy, Eighth Grade), who also serves as Co-Showrunner, Executive Producer, Writer and Director alongside Co-Showrunner, Executive Producer, Writer and Director Joanna Calo (BoJack Horseman, Undone). Hiro Murai (Atlanta, Station Eleven) and Nate Matteson (Station Eleven, The Choe Show) of Super Frog and Josh Senior also serve as Executive Producers. The series is produced by FX Productions.

LOS ANGELES, July 13, 2022 – FX’s Archer, the Emmy Award-winning animated comedy, will return for its 13th season on Wednesday, August 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FXX, streaming the next day on Hulu. The latest season of Archer will be followed on Thursday, August 25 with the series premiere of the new animated comedy Little Demon on FXX at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Since FXX expanded its programming line-up last September – adding all seasons of Family Guy to a schedule that includes such all-time classics as King of the Hill, Bob’s Burgers, and The Simpsons among others – it has become the go-to network for animated adult comedies, surging nearly +65% in Primetime in P18-49 and vaulting +21 spots – from #36 to #15 – in overall cable channel rankings to now place neck-and-neck with Adult Swim.

Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that follows Sterling Archer as he navigates the changing landscape of the spy world. This season, Archer and The Agency have been acquired by Fabian Kingsworth and the spy conglomerate known as IIA (International Intelligence Agency). As the gang struggles to find their identity performing odd missions for Fabian, one question arises: will they be able to maintain independence, or will they succumb to their corporate overlords?

The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the world’s greatest spy, “Sterling Archer;” Aisha Tyler as the spy with marital troubles, “Lana Kane;” Judy Greer as the crazy office assistant in search of a special skill, “Cheryl/Carol Tunt;” Chris Parnell as the reliable company-man, “Cyril Figgis;” Amber Nash as the enthusiastic offender, “Pam Poovey;” Adam Reed as the opportunist, “Ray Gillette” and Lucky Yates as the experimenter-in-chief, “Algernop Krieger.” Season 13 also features the voices of guest stars Kenan Thompson, Alison Pill, Christian Slater, Kayvan Novak and Stephen Tobolowsky, to name a few.

Archer was created by Adam Reed and is executive produced by Reed, Matt Thompson and Casey Willis at Floyd County Productions. The series is produced by FX Productions.
