Balancing two opposite genres while not letting it get overbearing is not an easy job. That’s why tragicomedy is such a challenging genre to master. However, a tragedy for some can be comic to others. And ‘Fleabag‘ spectacularly does this job. Based on Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s award-winning play of the same name, the series debuted on BBC in July 2016. Also, the show’s second season premiered last year on 8th April. The series has 12 episodes in total, with six episodes each season. Additionally, Waller-Bridge also creates, writes, and plays the titular role of the series.
‘Fleabag’ premiered among universal acclaim. It received plaudits from critics and viewers alike. Moreover, the show won multiple awards throughout its run. The awards the series won include Four Primetime Emmy, Two Golden Globe, and many others.
‘Fleabag’ Season 3: Release date
Sadly for fans, there are no plans for the show to return. So for now, ‘Fleabag’ is as good as over. However, in an interview last year, Waller-Bridge remained vague about the series’ future. Though she also suggested that the comedy-drama might return, but not anytime soon. Whatever happens, we are quite sure that the third season will happen, if not now, then later.
‘Fleabag’ Season 3: Possible cast
As we’ve mentioned before, the show features Phoebe Waller-Bridge as the titular protagonist. And as for the next season, Waller-Bridge herself expressed interest in returning to reprise the role. We also expect the majority of the cast to remain, meaning that Andrew Scott would return as the Priest. Additionally, Sian Clifford would rejoin the cast as Claire; Bill Patterson would portray ‘Fleabag’s father.’ Also, Olivia Colman (Fleabag’s godmother/stepmother), Brett Gelman (Martin), would probably appear as well.
‘Fleabag’ Season 3: Expected plot
Since the series renewal is yet to happen, we don’t know anything about the plot. However, we assume that season three would tell the next chapter of Fleabag’s life. Furthermore, the new season could also explore the results of her break up with the Priest. Whether she struggles with her father marrying her godmother would make a plot-point of the third season.
‘Fleabag’ Season 3: Storyline
The series follows an unnamed character known only as ‘Fleabag.’ She’s an angry and free-spirited woman living in London. The story shows Fleabag as she copes with various aspects of her life.
The series is a mix of comedy, tragedy, and dram genre. Furthermore, it breaks the ‘fourth wall’ quite frequently. And through these ‘breaks,’ the show gives the viewers expositions and commentaries on the story’s happenings.
‘Fleabag’ Season 3: Future possibilities
About the future, we’re confident that Fleabag will return. Though according to the showrunner, fans might have to wait a decade or two for season three. Furthermore, the series producers BBC and Amazon have also expressed their eagerness to continue the story of Fleabag. However, considering the sheer popularity of the series, it might return even sooner.
‘Fleabag’ Season 3: Trailer
About the trailer, information is scarce at the moment. However, trailers usually drop some months before the release. We’ll let you know if and when it does. Till then, stay tuned.
