Fleabag likely to return in 2019
Amazon greenlights second season of sitcom
A second season of acclaimed U.K. sitcom Fleabag has been greenlit by Amazon, it was announced Friday. The show was created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who also stars as the titular character, a sardonic, grief-stricken, and fourth wall-breaking London cafe owner. The second season is expected to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2019.
“I asked myself if Fleabag has more to say and frankly she hasn’t shut up since,” said Waller-Bridge, in a statement. “Series two will be a whole new adventure and I’m beyond thrilled to be coming back.”
“The first season of Fleabag introduced audiences to the brilliant and rebellious voice of Phoebe Waller-Bridge,” said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR, Amazon Studios. “She’s one of the best and most dynamic showrunners in TV today and we’re so excited to bring a new season of the smart and hilarious Fleabag to customers soon.”
