“Fleabag” writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has confirmed that the acclaimed comedy will have a second season, and it will begin filming this year. Waller-Bridge spoke with UK publication Radio Times about the future of the show.
“We cracked it open so that she would be able to have a life beyond it and also there are so many more stories and story strands and character strands come out of this series,” she said. “[I only wanted to bring the show back if I had] an idea that was good enough. I think I have one. We are all trying to make it work and have the same team back.”
Waller-Bridge also revealed that the team plans to start shooting in November and premiere the show in 2018.
She had previously described her anxiety about a second season to Vice .
“I have that feeling of, ‘Oh, quickly, quickly, because it’s worked just fucking write some more,'” she said. “But it’s so special and personal to me that I don’t want to fuck it up.”
