It will feature the shooting scripts of seasons one and two, along with the never-before-seen stage directions. The book will also accompany an Afterword from Waller-Bridge that explores the process of making and writing the series.

Fleabag made its debut as a one-woman act in 2013 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe before it was adapted for UK's BBC Three television in 2016.

Its second season premiered in early 2019 and won top honours at Television Critics Association Awards in all three categories in which it was nominated - Individual Achievement in Comedy for Waller-Bridge, Outstanding Achievement in Comedy and Programme of the Year.

The show is contesting for 11 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Best Comedy Series and Best Actress for Waller-Bridge.

It currently streams on Amazon Prime and its studio head Jennifer Salke recently said "nothing would make us happier to bring another season of her show." Waller-Bridge had earlier said the sophomore run would be the "final curtain".

The show revolves around Waller-Bridge's Fleabag, who is an angry, confused and sexually active woman in her 30s who lives in London.

It also stars Sian Clifford, Olivia Coleman and Andrew Scott.
