Watch Brassic season 3 on Sky Max with NOW from October 6.

After two critically-acclaimed series, Brassic is back to give fans even more of that winning humour with heart.

Co-created by Joseph Gilgun (who plays Vinnie in the show) and Bafta-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst, Brassic season 2 saw Vinnie and the gang get up to more raucous escapades in the fictional northern town of Hawley.

Here’s what we know about Brassic season 3 and beyond...

Brassic season 3 release date

You can watch all eight episodes of Brassic season 3 on Sky Max and NOW from Wednesday October 6.

Brassic season 3 plot: What will happen?

Sky has released this information about the new series:

"Vinnie, freshly out of prison, is jubilant to be reunited with his gang of mates but dismayed to learn that he now has the newly promoted Detective Carl Slater watching his every move.

Vinnie knows he needs to keep out of trouble... but playing it safe has never been his strong point. Soon he and his lifelong friends are back to their usual tricks with a hilarious new onslaught of wild and wonderful heists on the horizon. 

Bigger, braver and more bonkers than ever, it’s a hectic world of bulls, snakes, kidnappings, betrayal, and this time, a full-size horse..."

We're also dying to know what Erin whispered to Vinnie as he was being taken away by police at the end of series 2- and Sky have confirmed we'll find out the answer.

Danny Brocklehurst promises that we may see more of certain characters on screen next series, after series 1 supporting characters Sugar and Erin had bigger roles to play in series 2.

"Similarly with series 3, as I’m thinking about it now, we’ve done the same again," he said.

"Certain people have come into it a bit more who we thought were good, like Gary the undertaker. We just like having him on screen."

Brassic season 3 cast in a nutshell

The main cast are all returning for season 3. That's leader of the gang Vinnie (Joe Gilgun), motivated single mum Erin (Michelle Keegan) and Vinnie's best mate Dylan (Damien Molony).

That also includes the rest of the gang - champion kebab eater Cardi (Tom Hanson), gay traveller Ash (Aaron Heffernan), the sexually liberated Tommo (Ryan Sampson), and garage owner JJ (Parth Thakerar). 

We will also see the return of Sugar (Joanna Higson), Carol (Bronagh Gallagher), Jim (Steve Evets) and Vinnie’s blundering GP Dr Chris (Dominic West).

Is there a trailer?

Yes! The trailer for Brassic season 3 was released in January 2021:

Will there be a Brassic season 4 and 5?

Season 4 is currently in production, with filming taking place in North Wales and Lancashire.

Star Damien Molony has been posting updates from his Instagram account:

In an exclusive interview with BT.com in September 2021, Damien revealed filming began in August 2021 and was due to finish at the end of January 2022.

"We're six weeks into filming. We've been to Wales, which has been really fun," he said.

"We're here until the end of January, so we've got eight months to film. My favourite episode takes place at night in the woods. That’s all I can say!"

As for season 5, nothing is confirmed but Damien said he would be on board for another season.

"I'm sure Joe has plenty of ideas, and I think he definitely owes us an episode in continental Europe so and we can all have a couple of weeks in the sun. That would be amazing if we if we could do an episode by the beach on sun loungers!" he laughed.
