Fleabag to Return in 2019


Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s hit comedy Fleabag will see a second season airing on BBC Three and Amazon in 2019.

The first season was adapted from Waller-Bridges’ award-winning play. It centers on Fleabag, a dry-witted, angry, cash-strapped, grief-riddled, porn-watching young woman trying to come to terms with a recent tragedy. Details of the second series are currently under wraps.

Fleabag is a Two Brothers Pictures production in association with DryWrite for the BBC. Distribution rights are held by all3media international.

Waller-Bridge said: “I asked myself if Fleabag has more to say and frankly she hasn’t shut up since. Series two will be a whole new adventure, and I’m beyond thrilled to be coming back.”

BBC’s controller of comedy, Shane Allen, commented: “Fleabag signaled the arrival of a hugely distinctive writer with the mesmerizing performing talent to match. Phoebe’s career has shot up like a firework display in the last year and the show has been rightly hailed as a modern classic. It’ll be thrilling to see where she takes the character in the next series.”

Two Brothers Pictures remarked: “Obviously we couldn’t be more excited to be working with the ridiculously talented Phoebe again, and we can’t wait to see what the next chapter in Fleabag’s life brings….”
