Amazon today announced it will offer a second season of the half hour series Fleabag,  the acclaimed half hour series, with series creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (A Star Wars Story: Untitled Han Solo Film), returning as writer and star.

Waller-Bridge can also be seen in the upcoming untitled Han Solo "Star Wars" anthology film and will serve as showrunner and executive producer of BBC America's upcoming 2018 drama, Killing Eve. The second season of Fleabagis expected to premiere in 2019 on Prime Video in over 200 countries exclusively for Prime members.

The first season premiered in September 2016 and was hailed by The New York Times, Vanity Fair, GQ, Vulture, The Atlantic, Variety, and Buzzfeed among others, as one of the best new shows of the year. Fleabag was nominated for six BAFTA Awards in 2017, including a win for Waller-Bridge for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme.

"The first season of Fleabag introduced audiences to the brilliant and rebellious voice of Phoebe Waller-Bridge," said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR, Amazon Studios.
