Sky has confirmed that the forthcoming fourth series of Breeders will be the last run for the format.

The dark comedy, which stars Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard as stressed parents, will return for its final ten-part series on Sky Comedy this October.

Sky says: "The final ten episodes of the Sky Original deliver a dramatic conclusion to the Worsley family story of parenthood. Martin and Daisy reprise their roles as parents Paul and Ally and are joined by new cast members Oscar Kennedy (Wreck, Ladhood) who takes on the role of their son Luke (now 18-years-old) and Zoë Athena who plays their 16-year-old daughter Ava.

"It's five years since we last saw the Worsley family, caught up in the dramatic events at the end of season three - Paul and Ally on the verge of splitting up, Paul's parents Jim (Alun Armstrong) and Jackie (Joanna Bacon) in turmoil, Luke finding a new relationship and Ava mending an old one.

"Series 4 of Breeders brings the biggest parenting challenge that Paul and Ally have ever faced, as 18-year-old Luke drops a bombshell at Christmas dinner that will change everyone's lives forever. No longer in Luke's shadow, 16-year-old Ava experiences her own bombshell moment as she meets and immediately falls for the charismatic Holly (Jessie Williams). Paul and Ally continue to try, fail and try again as they face these latest parenting challenges, while also having to support the increasingly troubled Jim and Jackie."
