Plot Synopsis

Adapted from her award-winning Edinburgh play, writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge also stars in the title role as Fleabag, a dry-witted, angry, cash-strapped, grief-riddled, porn-watching young woman trying to come to terms with a recent tragedy. As she hurls herself headlong at modern living in London, Fleabag is thrown roughly up against the walls of contemporary London, sleeping with anyone who dares to stand too close, squeezing money from wherever she can, rejecting anyone who tries to help her, and keeping up her bravado throughout. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, this is the thoroughly disarming confessional of a woman so totally detached she's utterly lost, and ultimately wondering what the hell she ought to be doing in life. For FLEABAG's U.S. premiere, Amazon will release the entire six-episode first season on Friday, September 16, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.

In Season 2, Fleabag 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, this lost little rascal meets a Priestwho 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 first season -- 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. Fleabag and Claire are brought together by an unexpected attack, and tensions rise as another side of her sister emerges. Further afield, Dad still can't look Fleabag in the eye and Godmother slithers closer into the girls' lives. 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 series two, our heroine finds herself in the midst of a battle she is determined to win: Fleabag Vs God. Dame Kristin Scott Thomas and Fiona Shaw CBE are set to guest star in Season 2, which had its U.S. debut on Friday, May 17, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT on Amazon Prime.
