Fleabag Season 3: What’s next for the hit series?

Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s performance as the headstrong and cynical “Fleabag” has not only thrilled the British series world. But what about Fleabag season 3 of the dramedy series?

For those who don’t know “Fleabag” yet – here’s the trailer for the first season!

Attention, spoiler warning for “Fleabag” season 1 and 2!

In 2016, the first season “Fleabag” was released and swept us into the world of protagonist Fleabag (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), which is brimming with conflict and sadness. With her lousy-running coffee shop, her on-off relationship with boyfriend Harry (Hugh Skinner), her numerous man stories and her messed-up family, Fleabag has charmed her way into our hearts with her charm and self-deprecation. She tries to cope with the problems in her environment – not least the tragic death of her best friend Boo (Jenny Rainsford). The latter took her own life “by accident” on a busy road. Boo had actually only wanted to hurt herself in order to get the attention of her boyfriend, who had slept with another woman. At the end of the first season, it turns out that it was Fleabag who had slept with her boyfriend and was thus indirectly responsible for Boo’s death.

“This is a love story” – We already got a second season:

Actually, the first one was also supposed to be the last season. The series, based on a one-woman play, satisfactorily concluded all storylines in season 1. But Fleabag then returned in 2019. She forgave herself – as much as she could – for the past and got her life together. But when she meets the “Hot Priest” (Andrew Scott) at the engagement party of her father and passive-aggressive godmother (Olivia Colman), her world is once again thrown out of whack. A relationship of great affection, desire and conflicts of conscience develops. The second season finally ends in a heartbreaking scene in which the priest tells her, after a night together and mutual confessions of love, that he chooses his ministry and faith.

Fleabag Season 3: Here’s what you need to know about the current status:

The dramedy series “Fleabag” produced by Amazon Prime Video had achieved a very great success with the second season. Therefore, not least Amazon Prime Video itself would like to see a comeback of the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning series in the form of another season. Also actress Sian Clifford would be incredibly happy to slip back into the role of Fleabag’s sister Claire. Only screenwriter and leading actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge puts a bitter damper on the emerging anticipation. She herself has no plans to produce another season in the near future. She has already made this known publicly several times and is not backing down from this statement – even though she appreciates the high demand, of course. She could rather imagine bringing “Fleabag” back at the age of 45 or 50 and continuing to tell her life story from then on. That, of course, is still some time away. Since everything stands and falls with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, we will unfortunately have to exercise patience.

Fleabag Story and Background

At first glance, Londoner Fleabag (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) seems to be an ordinary young woman. She runs a small café, which is doing poorly, and she has to cope with the death of her best friend. Things aren’t going so well with her family either, the relationship with her stepmother is extremely strained and Fleabag and her sister Claire (Sian Clifford) are also in a bit of a crisis – until the situation escalates.

Fleabag: Background

“Fleabag” began back in 2013 as a one-woman show presented by Pheobe Waller-Bridge at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The piece won the Fringe First Award at the arts festival and was later adapted as a mini-series by the BBC and in co-production with Amazon Studios. In the summer of 2016, the time had finally come and the dramedy went on the air.

“Fleabag” began a real triumphal procession and has since won numerous prestigious awards, most recently two Golden Globes: In 2020, the dramedy, which has now been expanded to two seasons, was awarded Best Series and Waller-Bridge was honored as Best Series Actress.

In total, the black-humored show comprises twelve episodes spread over two entertaining seasons. Critics and audiences alike are enthusiastic about the British dramedy, and there is definitely demand for a third season. Series creator, leading actress and screenwriter Waller-Bridge, however, gives her fans little hope. For her, the story is finished and there is no need for another season extension.
