Tv Season Info

Time has moved on in Season 2 of Breeders, the comedy series starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard that explores the parental paradox that you'd happily die for your children, but quite often also want to kill them. Luke (Alex Eastwood) is now 13 years old and Ava (Eve Prenelle) is 10, serving up brand new parenting challenges for Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy 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. Can they survive the new pressures as they just-about survived the old ones? Or is there a finite number of ropes you can find yourself at the end of?

Critic Reviews for Breeders Season 2

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

[Freeman] softens some of Paul's sharp edges as the episodes continue. But Haggard, whose grounded performance helped solidify Breeders as a worthwhile dramedy series in season one, doesn't get enough meaty storylines this time around.

Mar 17, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The dark undertone of this crisis is ever-present... but there's still much to laugh about.

Audience Reviews for Breeders: Season 2

  • Mar 24, 2021
    A welcome continuation of a fantastic dramedy filled with relatable characterization pathos. 8.5/10.
  • Mar 23, 2021
    Do not sleep on this show! If you have been a parent, or had to care for your elderly parents, especially during the pandemic, this show is fecking hilarious and tear jerking. Martin Freeman does that thing where he says whole scenes with his face. Daisy Haggard is completely solid in her comedic timing. The whole thing is incredibly relatable and worth a watch.
