The Premise of Fleabag Season 3

The initial idea of the character of Fleabag actually came from a challenge by a friend, where Waller-Bridge was given the task of creating a sketch for a 10-minute section in a stand-up storytelling night! The Fleabag is a tragicomedy, revolving around the life of a free-spirited and sassy, but angry and confused, young woman in London. It explores her journey, poignant and hilarious at the same time, as she tries to cope with tragedy and to heal herself while rejecting any outside help. The show has a whopping score on IMDB of 8.7/10; and then follows a whole list of awards!!

It’s actually not feasible to mention all the accolades garnered by the outstanding show, so here are a few –

  • Waller-Bridge won the British Academy Television Award for Best Female Comedy Performance for the first series.
  • The second series received 11 Primetime Emmy Award nominations and won six
  • Waller-Bridge earned Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series awards for the second series.
  • The show received the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series and Best Actress for Waller-Bridge

So be sure you watch this amazing show and don’t yet drop your expectations for Season 3.

Till then,

Stay home, Stay safe!
