WATCH: Fleabag season 2 trailer

Fleabag S2 PosterAmazon has released the trailer for the upcoming season of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag.

The scathing, devastating comedy will return as the title character takes a new journey. Creator and star Waller-Bridge spoke about the new direction she will be taking during the TCAs. Sian Clifford, who plays the title character’s sister, also told The Guardian that this season will be the show’s last.

Collider describes the first season as ” some of the sharpest and funniest writing on TV in years, underlined by an absolutely eviscerating emotional journey of a woman trying to cope with her guilt and grief. ”

The second season recently concluded on BBC Three, to rave reviews, and will be released globally next month.

Here is the official synopsis of the show:

Fleabag (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) is back for a second bite, and this time she is going toe to toe with the man upstairs. In an unexpected twist of fate, our lost little rascal meets a Priest (Andrew Scott) who jolts her into seeing the world in a different way. Picking up a year on, there are still old wounds to unpick and new ones to dress as the next chapter of Fleabag’s life takes her to hell and back.

Since the end of the last hilarious series when her entire family rejected her, her darkest secret was revealed and she nearly threw herself in front of a car, she’s back for more laughs than ever.

Joyful, bleak, poignant and sucker-punch funny, the original cast is joined by a car-crash of new characters as we delve further into the world of Fleabag. With hope and faith at the core of season 2, our heroine finds herself in the midst of a battle she is determined to win: Fleabag Vs God.”

The second season will see the return of main cast members Waller-Bridge, Sian Clifford, Bill Patterson, Brett Gelman, Jenny Rainsfor, Hugh Dennis, Hugh Skinner, and the wonderfully savage Olivia Colman. Special guest stars include Fiona Shaw and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Fleabag season two will be available on Amazon Prime on May 17.
