Amazon Brings Season Two of "Fleabag," the Acclaimed Half Hour Series Written by and Starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge Exclusively to Amazon Prime Video in Over 200 Countries in 2019

SEATTLE - August 25, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced it will offer a second season of the half hour series Fleabag 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 Fleabag is 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. "She's one of the best and most dynamic showrunners in TV today and we're so excited to bring a new season of the smart and hilarious Fleabag to customers soon."

"I asked myself if Fleabag has more to say and frankly she hasn't shut up since," said Phoebe Waller-Bridge. "Series two will be a whole new adventure and I'm beyond thrilled to be coming back."

Fleabag is a hilarious and poignant window into the mind of a dry-witted, sexual, angry, grief-riddled woman (Waller-Bridge), as she hurls herself at modern living in London. The show is based on Waller-Bridge's play Fleabag, which won an Edinburgh Fringe First Award, the Critics' Circle and Off-West End Awards for Most Promising Playwright and a Special Commendation from the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

The first season also starred Brett Gelman (American Dad!, Twin Peaks), Olivia Colman (Broadchurch, The Night Manager), Bill Paterson (The Rebel, Outlander), Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), Hugh Skinner (Harlots, Poldark), Jamie Demetriou (Paddington 2, People Time), Jenny Rainsford (The Favourite, The Smoke),and Sian Clifford (Fry-Up, Paddy). A Two Brothers Pictures production in association with DryWrite, Fleabag was directed by Harry Bradbeer (Killing Eve, Dickensian), and executive produced by Harry Williams and Jack Williams (Rellik, The Missing) of Two Brothers Pictures, Lydia Hampson (The Art of Foley) and Waller-Bridge, and distributed by all3media International.
