Amazon Renews 'Fleabag' for Season 2

Amazon and the BBC have announced today that their original comedy series Fleabag created by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge has officially been renewed for a second season. However, new episodes of the show aren't set to premiere until 2019.

The comedy stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Brett Gelman, Olivia Colman, Bill Paterson, Hugh Dennis, Hugh Skinner, Jamie Demetriou, Jenny Rainsford and Sian Clifford.

"I asked myself if Fleabag has more to say and frankly she hasn't shut up since," said Waller-Bridge. "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," added 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."
