Brassic is a British comedy series which first aired on Sky One in the UK, from 22 August 2019.

Premise[edit]

Brassic follows the lives of Vinnie and his five friends as they live their lives in their northern town of Hawley. The working-class group commit various crimes to keep money in their pockets, but as they get older some of them start to wonder if there's more to life away from the town.[2]

The title, a shortening of boracic lint, is Cockney rhyming slang for "skint".

Reception[edit]

Sky announced before the first episode of season one had aired there will be a second series.[3]

Lucy Mangan of The Guardian, reviewing the series, gave it four out of five stars saying:"It is a hilarious, warm, brutal melange that works because it has heart without sentimentality and authenticity without strain." [4]
