The British comedy series Brassic first premiered in the UK back in August of last year. However, Hulu has since purchased the rights to the show and we have all the details on how you can watch it online from anywhere in the world.

Brassic follows the lives of Vinnie and his five friends as the group commits various crimes in the fictional northern English town of Hawley. Surprisingly, the first season of the show was so well received that it was renewed for a second season even before the first episode had aired on TV.

Vinnie and his friends, Dylan, Cardi, Ash and Tommo have led a life filled with illegal activity since they were adolescents but as the group has grown older, some of the friends have started to wonder if they could put their past behind them and lead a normal life. In season 1, Vinnie gets into a heap of trouble when he steals a car containing antiques belonging to a local career criminal and businessman named Terence McCann. McCann then threatens Vinnie with violence if he can't repay him for the goods he's stolen. As Vinnie lives in a shack in the woods, paying McCann isn't an option so he decides to avoid him at all costs.

Sky One first aired season 1 of Brassic last year and season 2 of the show premiered back in May of this year. Now that Hulu has purchased the rights though, the streaming service will likely make season 2 available soon.

Whether you're a fan of quirky British comedies or are just looking for something funny and entertaining to watch this weekend, we'll show you how to get a Brassic live stream no matter where in the world you are.

Brassic - When and where?

While season 1 of Brassic first premiered on Sky One back in August of 2019, the streaming service Hulu bought the rights to the show earlier this year and will make all six episodes available to its customers on Friday, July 31.

Season 2 of the show released on Sky back in May so it could very well come to the US streaming service quite soon. Brassic has also been renewed for an expanded third season of eight episodes on Sky, though a release date has not yet been announced.
