Fleabag cast for season 2

Dame Kristin Scott Thomas and Fiona Shaw CBE are set to guest star in series two, it’s been confirmed.

Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge said: “They literally begged me to be in it. Begged me. Begged. One of them was crying.”

They join returning cast members Olivia Colman (Godmother), Sian Clifford (Claire), Bill Paterson (Dad), Brett Gelman (Martin), Jenny Rainsford (Boo), Hugh Skinner (Harry), Hugh Dennis (Bank Manager), and the recent addition of Andrew Scott (The Priest).

Kirstin Scott Thomas said: “Phoebe Waller Bridge cannot be ignored. She manages to hit core issues with sledgehammer brutality as she trips along with a spring in her step. I laughed helplessly as I binge watched the first brilliantly funny series and enjoyed being aghast at times. I was very flattered to be asked to be in series two.”

Fiona Shaw added: “Phoebe’s mind is like nothing else.”

Fleabag spoilers

In a teaser for the new series, the BBC revealed: “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.

“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.”
