The fate of Michelle Keegan’s series Brassic has finally been confirmed after rumours of a possible cancellation. 

Sky has now revealed that their original comedy, starring the likes of Keegan, Joseph Gilgun and Ryan Sampson, will be returning for a seventh series, with filming likely to begin later this year. 

Not only that, but the broadcaster also confirmed fans can get their next dose of Brassic and its sixth series on Sky Max and NOW later this year.

Co-creator Danny Brocklehurst said in a statement: “'Season seven! How did this happen?!? Brassic is a delight to make and it's a privilege to create more chaos for our loyal and loving audience.”

Meanwhile, Alex Moody, Head of Comedy Commissioning, Sky Studios added: “We couldn’t be happier that Vinnie and the gang will return for another raucous ride, bringing heart, laughs and Farmer Jim’s unrivalled swear-count back to Sky for a seventh series.”

It’s been a bumpy ride for Brassic’s future, with sources telling The Mirror in October that it was looking “unlikely” that the series would continue past series six.  

However, this new announcement means Brassic will make the 50 episode milestone, but we’ll have to wait to see who makes a comeback. 

It’s not yet known which cast members are heading back to the fictional northern town of Hawley, with the crew last back together during the 2023 Christmas special, where Fool Me Once actress Keegan returned as Erin Croft. 

Brassic became Sky’s most successful comedy release when it launched in 2019, and follows the lives of the hapless gang as they try to keep money in their pockets by committing various crimes, in the hopes they may one day move away from their small town. 

The packed out cast includes Tom Hanson as Cardi, Aaron Heffernan as Ash, Ryan Sampson as Tommo, Parth Thakerar as JJ, and Bronagh Gallagher as Carol.

Brassic will return to Sky Max and NOW later this year.
