Fleabag series 2 confirmed for 2019

Phoebe Waller-Bridge in Fleabag

The comedy series Fleabag is returning for a second series, the BBC has just confirmed. The new run of the show won’t be on our screens until 2019, though. But the show, written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is definitely back.

In the official BBC press announcement, she’s quoted as saying “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”.

Elsewhere in the announcement, a few light details: “Details of the second series are currently under wraps, but the story’s likely to follow Fleabag through many more outrageous exploits”.

Filming is unlikely to start until next year, and as we hear more, we’ll let you know.

The show will be screened on BBC Three.
