In the title compound, [CdBr2(C11H10N2)(C2H6OS)], the CdII atom is five-coordinated in a distorted trigonal–bipyramidal geometry by two N atoms from a 6-methyl-2,2′-bipyridine ligand, one O atom from a dimethyl sulfoxide ligand and two Br atoms. An intra­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bond occurs. The crystal structure is stabilized by C—H⋯Br hydrogen bonds and π–π contacts between the pyridine rings [centroid–centroid distances = 3.582 (5) and 3.582 (5) Å].
