Series 2 of Breeders is due to start on Sky One and NOW TV this May.

Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard has filmed 10 new episodes of the comedy. The show continues to explore "the parental paradox that you'd happily die for your children, but quite often also want to kill them", however - as the first look picture reveals - the timeline has jumped a bit now.

Sky explains: "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?"

We'll get the answers in May!
