BRASSIC: SKY ONE PREMIERE! Boxset now available on SKY & NOW TV! Watch episode 1 online free! Series 2 announced!
Yes, the wait is over, at last it’s time to meet the Brassic gang and enjoy their capers in Joe Gilgn’s much anticipated comedy drama creation.
What is Brassic all about?
In case you didn’t know by now, this is what Brassic has in store.
Vinnie (Joe Gilgun), a Lancashire lad with bipolar disorder, is best friends from childhood with Dylan (Damien), the brains of the gang and poker hot shot. The two are utterly co-dependent and Dylan is torn between his best mate and his girlfriend Erin (Michelle Keegan), who plans to leave town for a better life for her and her son Tyler. Vinnie, Dylan and the rest of the gang – Cardi (Tom Hanson), champion kebab eater and total liability; Ash (Aaron Heffernan), the son of a family of fighting Travellers whose fists can get them out of most kinds of trouble; Tommo (Ryan Sampson), the most sexually liberated man in Britain who doesn’t care what people think; and JJ (Parth Thakerar), a sharp entrepreneur who runs a garage (with a lucrative sideline in stolen cars) – have found unconventional ways to win at life, but things are beginning to catch up with them.
Episode 1 sees the lads steal a Shetland pony, and in episode 2 the gang plan a heist through a sewer. Alongside the laughs is action packed drama and heartfelt emotion as Vinnie deals with his bi-polar condition, Dylan struggles to make a choice between his best friend and girlfriend and Erin fights for a chance for something better for her son.
Brassic series 1 premieres on Sky One 10 pm tonight, with all episodes available on demand after.

Commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content, Sky UK and Ireland, and Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios, all the main cast will be returning.
Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky Studios, said: “I know when our viewers binge on the first series of Brassic, they too will fall in love with the world and the characters that Joe Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst have created. You can laugh and empathise with every single one of them and you will want to be part of Vinnie’s gang. The show leaves you wanting more, so that’s why we had to order a second series of Brassic before it’s started!”
Joseph Gilgun, co-creator of Brassic said: “We all feel truly blessed to have a second series. I wouldn’t know how to thank Sky for having our back like they have. There’s definitely no second album syndrome and I’m confident series two is going to be even better than series one.”
Danny Brocklehurst, co-creator & writer, said: “It’s a rare privilege to be gifted a second series before the first has aired. This recommission shows the amazing love and support Sky have given Brassic. We are all thrilled to be continuing the journey of Vinnie, Erin and the gang… and the plans we have for the second series are bigger, bolder and even more outrageous.”
