Three years after the finale of Fleabag, a new Phoebe Waller-Bridge show is coming to TV.
Deadline reports that Amazon Prime Video has greenlit the Emmy Award winner's follow-up to her hit dark comedy, with plans to begin filming later this year. The upcoming series is the first created under Waller-Bridge's overall deal with the studio, which was signed in September 2019 in the wake of Fleabag's beloved second season.
Details about the untitled series have been kept under wraps so far, but it's highly likely the show will have the some of the frank observations of human relationships that made her past shows Fleabag and Killing Eve must-watches.
Over the past three years, Waller-Bridge has mostly worked behind the scenes in TV and film, including co-writing the screenplay for the latest James Bond film No Time to Die. She also briefly worked on the long-developed Mr. & Mrs. Smith reboot with Donald Glover, which she exited in September 2021, citing creative differences.
She also made on-screen appearances on the HBO thriller Run, which she also executive-produced, and the fantasy series His Dark Materials, which included a sort-of reunion with the Hot Priest himself, Andrew Scott. The Fleabag creator voiced Scott's character's daemon, the animal form of his soul, in season 2.
We'll also see Waller-Bridge in her biggest movie so far next year, as she'll star in the fifth Indiana Jones film alongside Harrison Ford. After some delays due to the pandemic, the highly-anticipated blockbuster is currently scheduled to release in June 2023.
