Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard's Breeders is returning for a fourth season later this year, with Sky confirming it will be the comedy's last.


The series sees Freeman and Haggard play parents Paul and Ally as they navigate the struggles of modern parenting, which in previous seasons has included Paul being punched by their teenage son Luke and Ally getting iced out by their daughter Ava.

The fourth and final season will feature some major changes, both in the world of the show and behind the scenes, which are hinted at in the brand new key art revealed by Sky.
