Hold On, Will There Be a ‘Fleabag’ Season 3 After All Those Emmy Wins?

There might be some bad news for Fleabag fans.

The beloved Amazon comedy is ending after two seasons and say it ain't so! Creator, writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge is ready to say goodbye to her character. She broke the news at the Emmys after winning six Emmy awards, including Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Comedy Series for Fleabag.

"To be honest, this just feels like the most beautiful, beautiful way to say goodbye to it, actually," she told reporters after her wins. "It does feel like the story is complete."

Fleabag started as a one-woman show at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival before playing in London between 2014 and 2016. It aired on Amazon in 2016, but only recently did it become a popular show featuring the internet crush Andrew Scott, Bill Paterson and Olivia Colman.

"Even though it's so nice to hear that so many people loved it, it's like, 'Oh, dammit, maybe I shouldn't have waved goodbye at the end.' It does feel right to go out on a high. You can't get higher than this."

The second season left with a bittersweet finale, but that doesn't mean fans aren't going to petition for another. Waller-Bridge is also the mastermind behind another fave drama show, Killing Eve, so we haven't seen the last of her work just yet.

We'll just be over here rewatching both seasons and fretting over how we're going to miss the hot priest on our screens.
