Amazon has announced that the second season of Phoebe Waller Bridge's critically acclaimed series Fleabag will start airing from 17 May, almost three years after the first season premiered.

Waller-Bridge initially didn’t want to do the second season, until some inspiration struck her. “I decided to not to do a second season,” she said during the final panel of the Television Critics Association’s two-week winter press tour, “and I had real pride in my artistic integrity,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
