BBC confirm more ‘Fleabag’ in 2019

by | Aug 25, 2017 | All, TV News

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and the BBC have announced today that award winning international hit comedy Fleabag will return for a second series in 2019.

Speaking at Edinburgh Television Festival, Waller-Bridge was in conversation with BBC Controller of Comedy, Shane Allen on a panel discussing the creation of the hugely successful comedy, and confirmed that a much anticipated second series will be coming to BBC Three.

The multi-award winning comedy written by Waller-Bridge swept the board at ceremonies in 2016 and 2017, winning a Bafta, Royal Television Society, British Press Guild, Broadcast and even NME Awards.

Phoebe 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.”

Shane Allen said: “Fleabag signalled the arrival of a hugely distinctive writer with the mesmerising 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.”

The first series was adapted from Waller-Bridges’ award-winning play, and saw 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, but the story’s likely to follow Fleabag through many more outrageous exploits.
