Production has started on series two of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag.
“I can’t believe they let me do this AGAIN. I’m so happy to be back with the incredible Fleabag team and I’m as surprised as anyone about where this series has taken us… thank God for Andrew Scott.” – Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Returning to the principal cast are Olivia Colman (Godmother), Sian Clifford (Claire), Bill Paterson (Dad), Brett Gelman (Martin), Jenny Rainsford (Boo) and Hugh Skinner (Harry). Andrew Scott joins the cast for series two.
Since series one aired, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has played the role of L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and has written and executive produced two-time Emmy Award nominated series Killing Eve, which launched to widespread acclaim in the states earlier this year and will be available in the UK on BBC One and BBC Three soon.
Fleabag is airs on BBC Three, the channel without a channel of course. You can get the shows from Three of the beeb on the iPlayer.
“The series 2 scripts are knockout – sparkling with Phoebe’s unique voice that combines a whip smart complexity of character with pin sharp funny lines scattered everywhere. The themes of this series are very distinct from the first series which delivers on the challenge Phoebe set herself. It’s a superb team and cast from top to bottom and with Fleabag you can never escape a reference to the bottom.” – Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning at the BBC
