Good news: "Fleabag" is returning for a second season. Bad news: Not until 2019.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who created and starred in the acclaimed British dark comedy, said in a statement, "I asked myself if Fleabag has more to say and frankly she hasn't shut up since. Series two will be a whole new adventure and I'm beyond thrilled to be coming back."
"Fleabag" followed the life of an unnamed British woman who used biting humor to battle overwhelming grief. The show deployed both flashbacks and breakdowns of the fourth wall, when Waller-Bridge addressed the camera with snarky quips. It was hailed by critics, though never quite attained mass buzz or the Emmy nominations it deserved.
(Seriously, if you haven't seen it: Run to Amazon right now and binge it. Thank us later.)
The long wait between seasons is due to Waller-Bridge's burgeoning career. She booked a role, reportedly as a droid, in the upcoming young Han Solo "Star Wars" movie. She's also writing and producing the BBC America drama "Killing Eve," starring Sandra Oh.
