Forgive her, God, for she has sinned.
Andrew Scott (“Sherlock”) joins the show as said Hot Priest, Fleabag’s new object of lust. As they spend more time together, Hot Priest challenges Fleabag’s worldview while she attempts to put her self-destructive ways behind her, attending therapy and having family dinners. She’s even abstaining from sex and eventually starts questioning her faith or lack thereof.
“I’ve read your book,” she tells Hot Priest, referring to the Bible, duh. “Do you think I should become a Catholic?”
“No, don’t do that,” he replies. “I like that you believe in a meaningless existence.”
You know what they say: opposites attract.
The trailer also offers brief glimpses of Oscar champ Olivia Colman, who returns as Fleabag’s bitchy godmother-turned-stepmother, and Fiona Shaw as Fleabag’s therapist. Shaw, of course, stars on “Killing Eve,” which Waller-Bridge created.
Season 2 will drop on Amazon on Friday, May 17, nearly three years after the September 2016 debut of the first season. Based on Waller-Bridge’s acclaimed one-woman show of the same name, “Fleabag” was originally intended to last one season, which is partially the second installment took so long. Waller-Bridge and co-star Sian Clifford have both said that Season 2 is going to be the show’s last.
