American audiences will get a wider introduction to Phoebe Waller-Bridge with Star Wars’ upcoming Han Solo film, but fans outright will jump for joy at this news. Fleabag is officially returning for Season 2 on Amazon, even if you have to wait a bit.
It’s that time of the year again when we begin to take stock of the best TV of the year and put our heads together to predict who will take home the gold come awards night. On Thursday, the TV Academy will announce their selections for the 2017 Emmy Awards. We already know the usual suspects will pop up, from shoo-in Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Modern Family and House of Cards, but what about the new series and the underdogs?
The imminent replacement of Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi affords the franchise yet another opportunity to shake things up with a female Doctor, or man of another race. The rumor mill is predictably rife with speculation, but a BBC news segment curiously hints at a woman commanding the TARDIS, if not Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
We don’t yet know for certain when Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge will return to the title role, but the Han Solo star has a new project to keep busy with. Waller-Bridge’s new BBC-A spy series Killing Eve has its lead, recruiting a familiar face from Grey’s Anatomy.
You’d be forgiven not to have seen Han Solo star Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s buzzed-about Amazon Fleabag, though at six episodes on Amazon Prime, we can’t recommend the binge enough. There’s good news in store for fans of the blackly comedic take on a twenty-or-thirty-something London woman, as Waller-Bridge says a second season could arrive as early as 2018.
