Is Dylan in Brassic Season 5?

***SPOILER ALERT*** While Damien Molony who plays Dylan has confirmed his exit from the show, fans will be delighted to learn that in Season 5 "there'll be a little bit" to resolve Dylan's fate. At the end of season 4, Dylan faced the wrath of local crooks the McDonagh brothers – in the final scenes of episode 8, he was grabbed up by a pair of hired thugs and bundled violently into the back of a car, his fate left uncertain.

Speaking about his exit, in an interview with Radio Times (opens in new tab), Damien said, "They were really exciting scenes to film, no doubt, but also emotional for me, because I've had four incredible years of, essentially, laughing and to suddenly shoot these scenes on my own, without the gang... there were a couple of moments that night where I was like, 'This is the end...'"

Though he will not be back as a regular, Molony added that "there'll be a little bit, I think, in series 5" to resolve Dylan's fate.

Further addressing his departure, at the time the actor said, "I will be devastated when the messages from the [cast] WhatsApp group start coming in, in the next few weeks, when people are saying, 'Oh my God, do you remember when this happened on set?'

"I think it’s very exciting for the show to lose a member of the team and to see how that affects the group dynamic. [But] it’s a sad day."

The show is expected to bring more of the eccentric plans and hi-jinks from the Brassic gang that includes Vinnie, Erin, Tommo, Ashley, JJ, Cardi, Carol, Sugar, farmer Jim and Dr Chris.
