Your daily dose of good news is here: Phoebe Waller-Bridge is working on a new series with Amazon

If there's one thing we all need right now, it's a laugh. And I don't think I've laughed quite as much (or cried for that matter) since the final season of Fleabag dropped. The good news is a dose of Phoebe Waller-Bridge magic is heading our way, thanks to a long standing deal she inked in 2019 with Amazon.

What is the show called? Who will star? Are there any details on plot? Comedy or Drama? The truth is, we simply have no idea. Little else has been revealed besides the fact that the project will begin production at the tail end of 2022. But these crumbs will keep us fed until then.

The forthcoming television series will mark the first project in Waller-Bridges contract with Amazon. A deal that was struck after Fleabag ruptured the hearts of every millennial with an Amazon Prime Video password. Considering that her Mr and Mrs Smith remake with Donald Glover fell through, this news is a salve for our Waller-Bridge deprived lives.

Although, in the three years since we found ourselves getting hot and heavy over a certain priest, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has not stopped. Not only did she deliver a perfect first season of another beloved series, Killing Eve, before staying on to executive produce, but the multi-hyphenate laboured over the screenplay for No Time To Die — the most recent James Bond film. On top of this, Waller-Bridge starred in Indiana Jones 5, and both executive produced and acted in HBO's Run. But let's forget about that last one.

What was so monumental about Fleabag, was its ability to wade through the messiness of millennial life, deftly depicting the pressures of homeownership, relationships, familial responsibilities, work, money, and sex in your early thirties. The only show that has had us feeling remotely similar is Michaela Coel's triumphant series I May Destroy You. Which we recommend plunging into while you wait for more information on this mysterious new project.
