One of the best shows on TV at the moment, nay, of the last ten years, is 'Fleabag'. The acclaimed BBC comedy is heading into the final episode of its second season on Monday night, but if you were hoping for more, unfortunately, that will be the end of it.
'Fleabag' star Sian Clifford confirmed on BBC Breakfast this morning that there will not be a third season: "This is it," she said. "I think I’ve described it online as this beautiful, perfect ending and I think it is."
Written and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the first season of 'Fleabag' earned high praise in 2016. Since then, Waller-Bridge created yet another hugely successful series 'Killing Eve' and starred in 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'. Thankfully, she also managed to find the time to make another much sought after second season of 'Fleabag', and it has somehow managed to surpass its exceptional first outing. It's sharp, it's heartbreaking, it's unpredictable and it's spit-out-your-drink funny. 'Fleabag' is art, there's no other word for it.
It's devastating that there won't be a third season but we cannot wait to see what the supremely talented mind of Phoebe Waller-Bridge comes up with next.
Fans can take comfort that there will be a satisfactory ending; "I think what it’s closer to is poetry", Sian said. "I think people will accept that this is the end when they see it because it is complete."
