A deep dive into all of the rumours saying Fleabag is making a comeback for season three
Does this mean the return of the hot priest???
It’s going on three years since Fleabag last aired on our screens and I’m not even being dramatic when I say it’s been a hellish time. If you’ve never watched Fleabag before, a) why the hell not? and b) it’s a dark comedy that follows a frustrated sex-addict named Fleabag. She navigates running a café, dating and sex, awkward family relationships and the death of her best mate.
We all though we had seen the last of Fleabag in 2019, but now rumours have surfaced saying it could be coming back for a third season and people are buzzing. Here’s everything we know about the potential come back of Fleabag:
In 2019 Phoebe Waller-Bridge said she wouldn’t rule out Fleabag never returning
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, aka the writer and actress who plays Fleabag, had an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2019 where she confirmed at that time there were no plans to continue the show. BUT she did also say that she wouldn’t rule out the return of Fleabag.
BBC Three is preparing for this televised relaunch
So we all know BBC Three was dropped off air back in 2016 and it has since advertised it is coming back on 1 February 2022. The official Fleabag Instagram account the posted this very cryptic post hinting at the new look for BBC Three and it’s got a lot of us talking about the potential return.
The comment section on this post is full of hopeful Fleabag fans who are all desperate for a third season. The top comment says: “MISS PHOEBE PLEASE GIVE US SOMETHING” and the one below says: “Don’t play with me I’m not stable” – moth comments are a big mood.
Plus, the account sporadically posted memes however since the relaunch of BBC Three it has got a lot more active with posting nostalgic and iconic content.
What is Phoebe Waller-Bridge doing now?
Phoebe doesn’t actually post on social media so it’s hard to say what she’s been up to.
In 2021, the world witnessed pure magic as Phoebe co-starred in a Harry Styles music video for Treat People With Kindness.
According to IMDb, she is set to act in the latest Indiana Jones movie but her her character has not yet been revealed. The movie is set for release in 2023.
Fleabag seasons one and two are available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
