Storyline and production info
Fleabag is a British comedy series that originally premiered on the digital BBC Three channel on July 21, 2016 and began streaming on Amazon on September 16, 2016. It is a Two Brothers Pictures production for BBC in collaboration with Amazon, which is written, executive produced and stars the multi-talented Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Lydia Hampson, and Harry and Jack Williams also executive producing. The first season contains six half-hour episodes and is based on an earlier stage monologue by Waller-Bridge.
Fleabag is a modern-day young woman navigating a life in London following a recent personal tragedy in her life, the death of her best friend. She’s far from exemplary in any way, she’s sexually voracious, is in a constant feud with her family members, bad at her job and does not bother pretending otherwise. The cast is rounded off by Hugh Skinner, Sian Clifford, Brett Gelman, Bill Paterson and the inimitable Olivia Colman. A great show about defeated people in terrible situations, it is depressing and uplifting at the same time, and has been compared to Bridget Jones in a ruder, and much funnier adaptation.
Excellent reviews and strong renewal prospects
The series is far from being the usual run-of-the-mill sitcom with stereotypical characters, it is a surprisingly irreverent, multidimensional, quirky gem of a comedy that explores important issues. The ratings are appropriately strong, with 8.2/10 IMDb, 88% on Metacritic and 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. All of the excellent reviews and aggregator scores point at Fleabag’s strong renewal potential, if the creators and producers come to an agreement on the show’s future. Many fans are rooting for another installment, and hopefully it will indeed work out, because just six episodes of this brilliant show is just not enough.
