It’s been more than two years since Andrew Scott’s hot priest whispered “it’ll pass” to Fleabag’s “I love you” and our world was rocked beyond reckoning by that seemingly innocuous one-line. 

Fleabag, the British-comedy drama, swept the award season of 2019-2020 and rightfully so, but then abruptly ended with season two. Created by ridiculously talented Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the series premiered in 2016 on BBC3, and the creator and star, Waller-Bridge, returned for a second season in 2019. With an eighth-place on The Guardians’ Top 100 Best Shows of the 21st Century, Fleabag was even on former United States President Barack Obama’s list of favorite TV series in 2019. Then, what happened? Where is Fleabag Season 3? Is there a Fleabag Season 3 in the works? If the show ended, then why did it end?

Here’s everything you need to know about Fleabag Season 3:

Is there a Fleabag Season 3?

Not yet. There is no Fleabag Season 3 as of now and likely will not be. Waller-Bridge, the creator and star of Fleabag, has been vocal about this several times, and she appears confident in her decision not to renew Fleabag for a third season. When asked by the BBC about Season 3, she said, “I have thought about it and there isn’t going to be one. This is it—this is the final curtain.” She added, “And yes, I did say that last time.”

Fleabag Season 2 received a total of 11 nominations at the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and the cast and crew went home with major wins from the award night. While speaking to the press backstage at the 71st Emmy Awards,  after winning the awards for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Comedy Series, Waller-Bridge said, “This just feels like the most beautiful, beautiful way to say goodbye to it. It does feel nice to go out on a high. You can’t get higher than this.” (via the Los Angeles Times)

According to what Waller-Bridge has stressed several times, there wouldn’t be a Season 3 for Fleabag

Will Fleabag get a reboot? 

Although Waller-Bridge appears to be confident in her decision not to renew Fleabag, she has also revealed her fantasy of bringing Fleabag back when she is 45 or 50. “I feel like it’s done, but I do have a fantasy of bringing her back when I’m, like, 45 or 50. She went on the biggest journey over the past two seasons, and she started as someone who sort of hated herself and ended up as someone believing that she could love again and forgive herself. I have to respect that arc and let her go and live for a bit.” she said to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fleabag is a show that is harder to replace, as is anything with Waller-Bridge’s name as a creator-writer. Still, you can watch some shows to fill that void that hot-priest and fleabag left behind in your binge-watch life. Created by Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve is another spectacular comedy but also a thriller that’s been on everybody’s radar since its release in 2018. With season four of Killing Eve set to release this month, it’s perfect for your next binge-watch. You can also watch an early miniseries, Crashing (2016) by Waller-Bridge, which she created and starred in.
