The new book – Fleabag: The Scriptures – features scripts from the show, previously unseen stage directions and new writing by the show’s creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
After Fleabag‘s second and final season came to TV earlier this year, Waller-Bridge took the show back to its origins on the stage through this summer, hosting a residency in London’s West End.
Since the show’s conclusion, Waller-Bridge has said that it’s a “fantasy” of hers to revive it later in life, something Andrew Scott – aka the ‘Hot Priest’ from season 2 of the show – is on board with.
In a review of the show, NME’s El Hunt called Fleabag “the best comedy show of the decade,” writing: “With an ability for cramming layers and layers into episodes that barely pass the twenty-minute mark, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s writing is like the puff-pastry canapés Fleabag hands around at Claire’s doomed work event; run through the plot alone, and it barely scratches the surface.”
