After the popularity of the first two seasons of ‘Fleabag,’ fans are wondering if there will be a third season. Everything we know so far has been compiled by HollywoodLife.
When the first season of Fleabag aired in 2016, it was a huge smash. The series was converted as a one-woman stage play by Phoebe Waller-Bridge during the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Fleabag first aired on BBC Two in August 2016 and then on Amazon Prime Video in September of the same year. In 2019, the series was renewed for a second season and became a cultural sensation.
About the series Fleabag Season 3
The Fleabag series is a dark comedy and drama that follows the life of Fleabag, played by Waller-Bridge. It’s not always easy to watch as she navigates her way through complicated relationships with family members and friends while also coping with mental health issues.
During season one, Flea lost her job at Wevorce but found love in Florence (played by Sian Clifford). At the end of Season One, Flea made contact with Benji, who was on holiday so he could be there for his daughter Alice when she dies from cancer. During the second season, we saw Flea rekindle an old relationship with Greg until they break up halfway through and then meet someone else too! Her Mum returns home after being on the run for several years, and Flea is forced to face up to her past.

In season three, we see Fleabag trying to find peace of mind while coping with mental health issues and other personal struggles that need answering. Fleabag becomes diverted from herself as she finds herself being pulled back into old habits by people who are no good for her or anyone else.
Fleabag’s first season began on BBC in July 2016, with a total of six episodes showing from July to August of that year. Amazon Prime Video immediately took up the series, which aired in September 2016 in the United States.
Fleabag season 2 premiered in March 2019 and was followed by a six-episode second season on BBC in April. In May of 2019, it was published in the United States via Amazon Prime.
Fleabag has not yet been renewed for a third season, and it seems unlikely to be. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the show’s creator, has stated in many interviews that she wants the series to conclude on a positive note.
